Cool project and write-up from Team Thingsquare (Adam Dunkels, Fredrik Rosendal, and Marcus Linderoth) up on Hackster.io.
Today we build a large-scale sensor network with off-the-shelf hardware: TI Sensortags, a TI CC1350 Launchpad serial gateway, and a Raspberry Pi Zero W and show the results on a map.
Many people use the TI Sensortags as a Bluetooth device – today we are going to do something different. To allow large-scale networking, we are setting them up as a 6lowpan device. This requires use to manually flash the firmware of the Sensortags. Fortunately, with the Launchpad, we have all the tools we need to do this.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
