About

UMMU Box v1
UMMU Box v1

UMMU Box v2 will build  on the already established UMMU Box v1, which requires an external WiFi router to function.  UMMU Box v2 will be completely standalone and self-contained, having WiFi capabilities built in.  The software for this project is already in place, research is needed to find the best Arduino compatible WiFi card that will function in AP mode.  If necessary, we will design and build the card ourselves.  UMMU Box v2 will enable users to control Yamaha and Roland consoles remotely via WiFi from their iPhone or iPad using the StrongSoft® Remote series of iOS Apps, without the need of a host computer.

Risks and challenges

UMMU Box v1 functions very well with an external router. But obviously, having just one Box that handles WiFi as well is preferable. The challenge is to find an Arduino compatible WiFi shield that provides the same functionality as the external router used with the v1 Box. There are many cards out there, testing each one is going to be expensive and time-consuming... And the bottom line is: if we can't find something that exists that has the functionality we require, we will have to build our own!

UMMU Box v2 Production and Fulfilment Plan:-

March 2014 - R & D for self-contained UMMU Box initiated. Research has already shown that many of the currently manufactured Arduino WiFi shields will not work in Access Point (AP) mode.

April 2014 - Waiting for a reply from DIY SandBox (www.diysb.com) re their new Hydrogen WiFi Shield (currently unavailable…) which is reputed to support AP mode. In contact with TP-Link with a view to a collaborative design and construction of Arduino compatible WiFi Shield. Began construction of prototype WiFi Shield ourselves.

May 2014 - Expect to have made a decision whether to use existing WiFi Shield, or to design and manufacture our own.

July 2014 - Expect manufacture to begin.

Aug - Sep 2014 - Expect first production models to be available.

Please be aware that the software for the UMMU Box v2 is already written, and tested.
