Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Texas Instruments SensorTag, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- If you want a simple device…so that you can test out a concept…for a thing that you want to build,…a thing that might be related to health and fitness,…or a medical application, or toys,…the cheapest way and the most direct way…you can get going is something called…a TI SensorTag.…It's available for $25, and it supports…a number of devices.…If I come all the way down here to the bottom,…we can see that it has six sensors built into it.…It's got a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor,…a barometric pressure sensor,…an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer.…
Maybe you're not familiar with all those particular terms.…A barometric pressure sensor determines…the air pressure which you can use…to predict weather trends.…An accelerometer talks about how fast…the device is moving in any particular direction,…X, Y, or Z.…A gyroscope has to do with the trend…of the way the device is moving…in those particular directions,…and the magnetometer is essentially a compass.…This is the TI SensorTag in its little enclosure.…
