INTRODUCTION NODE (wireless sensor)is a versatile first-generation handheld sensor measuring 1 inch in diameter and 3.75 inches wide that communicates wirelessly through low energy Bluetooth 4.0 with Apple iOS devices.Dr. George Yu
HARDWARE•Arduino compatible•Lithium Polymer battery (650 mAh)•12-14 hours battery life with continuous Bluetoothuse•2 MB memory•3-axis accelerometer•3-axis magnetometer•3-axis gyroscope•Audio buzzer•Bluetooth 2.1 or Bluetooth Low Energy•2 module ports•2 dimmable blue LEDs•micro-USB for charging and firmware programming
APPSNODE is an app driven product.More than one app can use the NODEs functions to perform avariety of tasks.
SENSOR MODULES As of January 2013, 6 interchangeable sensor modules were available , that can detect: colour-CHROMA gases-OXA flash light-LUMA barometric pressure-CLIMA motion-KORE surface temperature-THERMA
Highlights:•9 degrees-of-freedom motion engine•2 interchangeable module ports•Open API with all modules•long-range Bluetooth 4.0 SmartDirectly useful for:•Motion mapping for animation or physical therapy•Motion-based cues like telling when the washerstops or the door opens•Impact testing•Use as a gesture-based remote control
Highlights:•Measurement time: approx 1 second• consistency : < 0.80deltaE reading to readingconsistency of the same color under sametemperature.•Color information provided: CIE L*a*b*D65,sRGBD65,HEX,CMYK,DeltaE 2000 for color comparisionDirectly useful for:•Ideal paint color matching and collecting module•Quality•Control•Design
Highlights:•Measure heat or cold at a distance2 LED aiming guides•Use the Therma App to mark heat signaturesDirectly useful for:•Inspecting heavy machinery at a distance•Looking for weak points in insulation•Testing for hotspots in walls•Monitoring cooling systems•Determining external food temperature•Touchless thermometer
Highlights:•Measures humidity, temperature, and barometricpressure•Senses ambient light•Tells the climate of wherever you place itDirectly useful for:•Testing humidity•Monitoring for changes in temperature•Light- or temperature-based cues•Transmitting temp readings from firefighters in abuilding to the fire chief outside
Highlights:•8 High-brightness LEDs•Use one or all of the 8 LEDs•Extra-long sleep life via Bluetooth Low-energy•Programmable flash patterns•Adjust the lighting remotely from your SmartphoneDirectly useful for:•Compact flashlight for a car or bag•Altering the mood-lighting right from your phone•Remote signal lighting•Turn on remotely during a power outage
Highlights:•Stable electrochemical gas sensor for bothambient and toxic level gas detection.Used to detect and measure gases:•Carbon Monoxide (0 - 400 ppm)•Carbon Dioxide (500 ppm to 90%)•Chlorine (0 - 10 ppm)•Nitric Oxide (0 - 40 ppm)•Hydrogen (0 - 20 ppm)•Sulphur Dioxide (0 - 10 ppm)
COMPATIBLE DEVICES FOR BLUETOOTH 4.0 ▪ iPhone 5Mobile applications that ▪ iPhone 4Sdisplay the data transmitted bythe NODE can be developed ▪ iPod Touch 5th Genthorough its open applicationprogramming interface (API). ▪ iPad 3 ▪ iPad 4 ▪ iPad Mini ▪ Macbooks
CONCLUSIONNODE, a modular wireless sensor platform forSmartphones that enables apps to access thelatest in sensing technologies. This technology will completelychange the way people use their Smartphones.Thus NODE, handheld powerhouse of sensorsis considered as the coolest gizmo of 2013.
