This is a very impressive use case of yours to monitor honeycombs and bees with the XDK. Thank you very much for sharing your idea and implementation with the XDK community.
Seeing this project, I am very curious to see what your next idea will be.
Kind regards, Franjo
I am glad to hear that you made your own implementation to use the acoustic sensor of the XDK. I think this will help a lot of other users of the XDK community. Unfortunately I can not provide precise details about the release of the acoustic sensor API, the only thing I can say it is currently in developing state. We will keep you posted about the latest releases in this community.
Hi Franjo, thanks for the encouragement. This little update is to let you and community know that the edge sensor firmware to the Bosch XDK is in full first working version and complete, all sensors desired including audio are working, also our current BLE protocol engine is fully working and users can reuse this firmware as a base to understand and develop with BLE-based protocols, also we improved the BLE RTOS task find in bosch documentation to support dynamic priority switching based on HCI-UART activity, flashing it and running a linux tool like gatttool the users can send requests and listen data sent by XDK through notifications.
I Hope this work helps the community to bring more amazing projects, also code contributions are always welcome. Thanks again. Best Felipe
that sounds great! I am glad to hear that your application is getting popular. Congratulation for the publication on instructables.com.
Unfortunately I have currently not all information to answer your question accordingly. But I forwarded your request to the responsible person and will get back to you as soon as I know more about the mass production of the XDK.
In the meantime, the only thing I can do is ask you for patience.
Hello Felipe, Thanks again for sharing this great idea. I discussed your project with the XDK team and we decided to contact you directly to get in detail about your questions. Kind regards, Franjo
Hello guys, the beeinformed firmware was updated, the sensor node got a lot of improvement, so there is only two commands to get data over ble, also we overcomed a limitation on BLE, the previous version was based on XDK guide which actually uses a uart polling method to obtain module data and feed the HCI layer, we modified some portions of XDK implementantion and the ours now the BLE is fully event driven and works only when HCI has data incoming or operation outcoming.
More than that now the XDK can enqueue requests made by peer device, now it can handle a sequence of requests ensuring real time data transfering.
The firmware behavior is also more stable, the device took a test about 72hour duration time and not crashed any time. The link to the repository is the same, please feel free to ask me if you find some problem.
I am glad to hear that you were able to update your Beeinformed project. I am looking forward seeing more of your upcoming use cases in action.
Please tell us about your progress!
