The STMicro SensorTile.box PRO can be explored regardless of the level of expertise with three different modalities.
The Entry mode allows users to run a wide range of already embedded IoT applications. The free STBLESensor App can be downloaded to a smartphone and used immediately to begin commanding the board with any of the following applications that have been specifically designed to work with the board sensors:
1) Motion: Compass, Free-fall detection, Level, Pedometer, Sensor-fusion - Quaternion
2) Environmental: Barometer
3) Log: Data recorder
4) AI and MLC: Baby crying detector, Human activity recognition
5) User interface: Qtouch
6) Connectivity: NFC Tag
The Expert mode can build custom applications through the STBLESensor App by selecting specific input data and operating parameters from corresponding available in-box sensors, functions to assess/compute those data, and output types required while leveraging on the available powerful algorithms.
The Pro mode permits the rapid development of users' tailored IoT applications taking advantage of STM32 open development environment (ODE) and ST function pack libraries, including sensing AI function packs with neural network libraries, without performing any coding activity.
The SensorTile.box PRO board fits into a small plastic box with a long-life 480mAh rechargeable battery, for the first time also leveraging on a wireless charger and a programmable NFC tag. The board can be easily connected through BLUETOOTH® to the ST BLE Sensor app on a smartphone, from which the box kit can be appreciated in Entry and Expert modes. In Pro mode, professional users can control the firmware programming and debugging interface in the STM32 ODE to develop firmware from scratch.
