About this project

Smart WiFi Dev Board

WiFiMCU is a smart WiFi Dev Board. With Open WiFi library, it can deal with many I.O.T applications, for example WiFi detector, WiFi locating device....... With Cortex-M4, it can drive motors, operate relays, camera...... It is really suitable for smart WiFi things.

Hardware Features

WiFi MCU Dimensions
WiFi MCU Dimensions

Embeded Cortex-M4  

STM32F411CE is a Cortex-M4 microcontroller. It operates with 100MHz frequency, 2M bytes of SPI flash. It also has a 512K bytes of on-chip flash and 128K bytes of RAM. Therefore, many wonderful applications would be developed by WiFiMCU.

Lua Scripts

WiFiMCU use LUA for programming, which is a scripting language.

-- Flexible expansion and customization capabilities

--Small, fast start

--Notepad editting

Programming

An WiFiMCU programming tool is designed, which is based on C# and .net framework 3.5+. Almost all the operation function is presented. And all the Lua function is open-source, shown by https://www.gitbook.com/book/fineshang/wifimcu-reference-book/details.

Boosted Range

With a new RF amplifier, the Bean+ can communicate with other Bean+'s from up to 400 meters (1,300 ft) under ideal conditions, or 250 meters (820 ft) to your smartphone. Upload a new sketch to your tree house Bean+ without having to leave your bed, or turn on epic welcoming music in your house before you even pull into to your driveway.

Applications

Interacts with smartphone

WiFiMCU supply many applications on smartphone, smart home controller, robot controller, etc. Due to WiFi standard and STM32 controller, many excellent application can be complied on WiFiMCU.

interacts with sensors

WiFiMCU has many GPIO interface, IIC UART GPIO SPI included. It can drive many sensors, like grove kits.

interacts with a tank

Especially, there is a extended application which is a remote controlled tank T100. T100 is a very excellent robot tank. It is well-designed and suitable for field experiments. WiFiMCU have a special android APP and may be used for T100 control.

Our Team

We are the WiFIMCU team! DOIT is our motto. And we like to design some smart robots and some I.O.T communication modules. Our name is:

  • Ping Yang
  • Liuji Shang
  • Honggang Li
  • Chenfu Yi

Risks and challenges

We have designed and produced some prototypes of WiFiMCU, including software and hardware. From April, WiFiMCU is started up and come into our mind. And we also have a supporting factory to produce product in ShenZhen China. Now for further forecasting, we have to make more modules and other accessories.

However, since WiFiMCU is a new type of WiFi module with a LUA system. There are a lot of instability in development process. There is a risk that LUA system bug will bring lot of problem. But we have a strong technical group, and we are confident to solve the potential problems.

Our shipping dates are estimate date, and we will do our best to ship early.
