Making your own drone with GNSS click
Posted by Lana Vulic on 27 March 2017 01:53 PM

A project on hackster.io uses GNSS click to build a semi-autonomous drone. The click plays its part as a GPS receiver.

Read the whole tutorial to see the necessary code, GPS and IMU sensors wiring and more.

The next installment of this tutorial will teach you how to add motor control to the device so that the drone can take flight and fulfill its purpose.

You can start with the video, to see the half-done drone in action. Don’t expect to see it flying yet, it still needs a motor. But what you can see is GNSS click locating the device on google maps.

Better coverage with both GPS and GLONASS satellites

GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo are the three main parts of the GNSS system. At any time there are six to twelve satellites above the horizon that can be used to calculate a position. A GNSS receiver needs at least four satellites to get the necessary information: latitude, longitude, and altitude. The simple conclusion being that the more satellites there are, the more accurate the results will be.

The latest GPS satellite in orbit weighs around 1,400kg. That is the weight of an average midsized car. Imagine a Toyota Prius moving through space, at the speed of several kilometers per second.

GNSS click

GNSS click carries the L86 module from Quectel, with an integrated patch antenna. It has a UART interface and runs on a 3.3V power supply.

With its ultra low power consumption of 20mA in tracking mode, it fits the IoT field like a glove.

For more information on the GNSS click, see the product page.

You can also take a look at the GSM/GNSS 2 click if you want to add mobile connectivity to your project as well.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

Hexiwear wins fifth award
Posted by Lana Vulic on 19 January 2017 02:17 PM

Hexiwear has been voted as the “Best for Rapid Prototyping” development platform in the Hackster Maker Madness competition.

Maker Madness 2016

A few days before Christmas we wrote about Hexiwear being chosen as one of the eight development boards for the Maker Madness – Best IoT boards of 2016 competition. We are happy to announce that this is the fifth award that Hexiwear has one so far. A nice round number to begin the year with.

Here is what people had to say about Hexiwear:

“One of the best prototyping IoT platforms and the only limit is your imagination.”

“An awesome and incredible board with onboard high-tech processor.”

Visit the Hexiwear Hackster page to see projects like Hexiwear – a virtual pet, fall detection alert for elderly peopleTalking iBreathe Breathalyzer and many more. Who knows, maybe you’ll get inspired to start a Hexiwear project of your own.

Hexiwear Power User Pack

The Hexiwear Power User Pack is a great starting point for starting your own IoT project. The Docking station is included in the package – program, debug and enhance Hexiwear with additional functionalities. You can add up to three click boards.

Let us know what you think of Hexiwear in the comment section.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

Win Hexiwear in the Zerynth IoT competition
Posted by Lana Vulic on 28 December 2016 09:02 AM

Zerynth is having a competition for the best real life IoT project. Whoever wins gets our Hexiwear as a prize, and Zerynth compatible MikroElektronika click boards.

The competition has started on December 20 and lasts until February 17, just after Valentine’s day, so you have plenty of time to come up with an amazing project or several.

What is Zerynth Studio?

Zerynth Studio is an IDE for embedded programming in Python or C/Phython, that enables IoT devices. If you go to their website you can download the software for Windows, Linux, and MAC. They have a nice tutorial that explains it all in detail, so take a look.

The Contest

The contest is open to everyone, who wants to build a real life IoT project. The number of projects you can submit is not limited to anything, other than your imagination and drive.

Without further ado, here are the rules:

    1. Your project must use Zerynth and one of the supported boards (you can find the list here).
    2. The project must be a real life IoT device, meaning it should easily be used in everyday situations.
    3. You must submit the project on these two platforms:

Hexiwear is the first prize

The winner of the competition wins a Hexiwear. When the voting is over, the winners will be announced on the Zerynth blog and on the Zerynth Community Forum.

The three most voted projects will get a Flip & click board and other MikroElektronika click boards that are compatible with Zerynth: (LoRa, WiFi Plus, Bargraph, Temp&Hum, I2C 1 Wire, Thumbstick, REED, DC MOTOR, Vibra sense, IR Distance, microSD, RELAY, Motion).

Hexiwear 3D files

If you go to the Download section of the Hexiwear website, at the bottom you will find the complete Hexiwear 3D design files, including the casing and accessories. You can have Hexiwear in any color now, all you need is a 3D printer, we have provided everything else.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektronika
