Project Technology Focuses

  • PSoC® 6 Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex-M0+ MCU
  • CYW4343W 802.11n Wi-Fi + Dual-Mode Bluetooth Radio
  • AWS IoT Cloud Services

 

Project Requirements 

 

Project Description

 

Meditation is an extremely effective method to reduce stress – it is no wonder that IoT capabilities have already started to make their way into devices that enable meditation in a number of ways. This project implemented a guided mediation IoT device enabling “Singing Bowl Therapy”. The sound reverberating form a spinning bowl can be healing to both the mind and body. PSoC 6 and Wi-Fi were used to add intelligence to this almost ancient method of meditation. PSoC 6 drove the motor to spin the bowl, and Wi-Fi was used to connect to AWS IoT Core to store “tracks” – providing the user the ability to set the type of meditative song played, how long it played for, set a track to loop etc. On-board the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit used in this project is CapSense® capacitive-sensing buttons/sliders allowing the user to manipulate the track being played in different ways – start, slow, switch, etc.

Project Description

 

This project added the edge processing and connectivity capabilities of combining PSoC 6 and Wi-Fi to a NanoDrone project. This project is actually a great example of how IoT technologies (like the combination of our MCUs, Wireless, and Software) can add exciting innovation to current embedded projects. Essentially the developer here created a connected “Ground Control Unit” for his drone. The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit interfaced with an Arduino LoRaWAN Dev Kit which is receiving locational and environmental data from the NanoDrone. This data is shared with the PSoC 6 MCU through a wired connection, processed, and then sent to AWS IoT Core as well as an AWS IoT SiteWise Portal to categorize, monitor, and visually represent the data provided by the NanaDrone prototype system.

  • PSoC® 6 Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex-M0+ MCU
  • CYW4343W 802.11n Wi-Fi + Dual-Mode Bluetooth Radio
  • RFID
  • AWS IoT Cloud Services

 

Project Requirements 

 

Project Description

This project implemented an IoT Food Monitoring system powered by PSoC 6 MCUs and Wi-Fi along with AWS Cloud Services. A RFID module was interfaced with the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit and scanned grocery item barcodes in an enclosure to get different types of data such as item name, expiration date, etc. PSoC 6 drives the TFT Display Shield to display this grocery/food item data and latest status. On-board Wi-Fi pushes the food monitoring data to AWS IoT Core via MQTT, it is stored in a database via AWS DynamoDB and pulled to a mobile app hosted on AWS S3 that would display current the latest information on food availability, temperature, nutrition info for a specific item, etc.
