A few things stand out from Jina’s testing. The first being that three of the units she tested in December are already discontinued which indicates how fast this industry is changing. Another interesting point is how difficult it was to normalize the data between the different units. The first step after acquiring the data was determining how to extract the data from each device. The process was complicated enough that she put together a data extraction guide for most of the devices. The guide mostly describes using POST based APIs, but in the case of the “Hello Sense” they had to unlock the data using postman.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
