Turn anything into a bluetooth peripheral for your mobile device! - Module Demos.
Dear backers: with less than 1 week left, we have some great expansion module demos to show. Please submit this update to technology sites/blogs, help us get back in the spotlight 1 more time before the project closes!
Easy Bluetooth Interface for Mobile Accessories!
Sensordrone is not just a sensor platform, it is an EASY bluetooth interface. This means you can use Sensordrone to connect virtually anything to a smartphone over bluetooth, this video update shows some of the possibilities.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Ambient CO2 is the key gas the world is keeping an eye on for global warming studies. CO2 in exhaled breath is interesting for a number of medical applications. We are offering an ambient CO2 sensor module for backers.
Water Quality Monitoring
You can do that too! In collaboration with Atlas Scientific, we’re making pH & Dissolved Oxygen sensor modules for Sensordrone so you can read water quality information on your smartphone!
We are creating new rewards for you to get CO2, pH and/or Dissolved Oxygen modules in addition to your Sensordrone. We will offer a variety of other modules in the future as well, like a multi-gas air quality monitoring module, a thermal imaging module, and be working with partners to offer medical related modules.
Module Development Support
For developers that want to connect any hardware to mobile phones, an EASY bluetooth interface means Sensordrone will take care of all the bluetooth overhead for you, and directly display voltage or digital data on your phone. Then, App development is simply focused on data presentation without the need to develop bluetooth firmware/software.
Sparkfun offers all kinds of parts for you to build your own bluetooth peripheral that connects to Sensordrone’s simple expansion connector.
Maybe you’d like to make a printer, a dust sensor, or work with solar panels. Browse Sparkfun’s catalog, and let us know what you want to connect to Sensordrone, and we’ll give you tips on how to do it.
