Project Description

This project implemented a smart, cloud-connected, ML driven Mailbox for the home. This project leveraged essentially all of the components on the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit: PSoC 6 of course to process motion sensor data and drive the TFT display, alerting that people are at the Mailbox, on-board Wi-Fi/Bluetooth radio to transmit to an iOS mobile app via BLE as well as send data to AWS IoT Core to then interface with other AWS Cloud and Amazon services such as Kinesis, S3, Lambda Functions, etc – and the on-board F-RAM was used for data-logging as well. A ML model was also built up using TensorFlow and Amazon SageMaker Studio to detect if and what type of dog is at the Smart Mailbox.

Project Description

This project recognized the benefits that IoT devices can have on an aging population that needs to take multiple different types of medication throughout the day – which can be incredibly confusing and deserves some automation. This Smart Pill Dispenser project create an Alexa skill that when initiated, dispensed a particular pill with a small Servo Motor driven by PSoC 6. PSoC 6 in this project also drives a graphical display that displays which pills have been provided to the patient during the day so far.

Project Description

This project implemented a Smart backup Sump Pump – essentially a device to remotely monitor water level in a basement. This project leveraged the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit to monitor Floor Water Sensors, and then transmit that data to AWS IoT Core where a text messaging system was setup to alert the user of water level getting to a certain level.

Project Description

This project implemented an IoT Billboard system – where users could “rent” an IoT Billboard through a website that the project creator built. That website interacts with a database based on PostgreSQL that stores user details, billboard images, payment details, and more. AWS IoT Core also interacted with this database and pulled these images that users were renting out. The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit would poll AWS IoT and pull down the images over MQTT, and displays the images for a certain amount of time on the TFT Display Shield that comes with the Pioneer Kit using the LCD BitMap converter for emWin.

Project Description

This project implemented a full Home Automation Hub using PSoC 6, Cypress Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, as well as AWS IoT Services as the Connected Cloud Challenge required. The “PSoC 6 Control Center” as described in the project, aggregated multiple sensor nodes including: a door opener node, lighting node, alarm node, door bell node, etc. and then transmitted this sensor data to AWS SiteWise to build a scalable management system. SEGGER emWin was also used to drive a rich graphical display on the TFT Display Shield that comes with the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit to show different characteristics of the home.
