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.
