This prototype demonstrates a system capable of measuring air quality and transimitting data from nodes to a central receiver using low power radio. It integrates multiple technologies to create a low power system
The prototype consists of sensor nodes and a main receiver. The nodes and receiver communicate using an ultra low power RF transceiver from Nordic, utilising the 2.4GHz band.
A combination of sensors on each node are used to measure:
The central receiver forwards sensor data to the cloud where it is processed, stored and then displayed through a web application.
The sensor nodes use a low power Cortex-M4 processor while the receiver uses a Cortex-M7.
Sensor nodes and the receiver communicate using the NRF24L01 from Nordic, an ultra lower power 2.4GHz transceiver.
