Turn your Android into a Mobile Laboratory
we are here new and we want to represent our Android Sensor Project at indiegogo, under the name "Turn your Android into a Mobile Laboratory".
Turn your Android into a Mobile Laboratory | Indiegogo
We have developed a mini USB adapter called SensorNotes, with an open software architecture. By using 4-pins only, the sensorNotes can interface just about any type of sensors you want. Ranging from simple temperature resistive sensors, to digital barometer and humidity sensors, and up to devices that require more power for operation besides interface such as is an Arduino board.
Our first application is highly accurate thermometer operating at high precision of 0.2 F. It can display and store your daily morning measurements. As an example you can easily find out the health state of your thyroid gland, and women may predict their ovulation cycles. Make a sensor of your own! In the past years we have specified and deployed the so-called SensorNotes compact message layer. By using it, one can simply make one's own sensor, plug it into the USB Adapter and get the results immediately on the Android display, or may even configure the sensor. One can further make use of this data and integrate it with other applications using the Open API, or directly using JSON web-service access.
By supporting our project we will bring out even more sensors and help us create an open sensor platform, the SensorNotes.
Re: Turn your Android into a Mobile Laboratory
In short: for anything, it is an universal mixed signal interface.
The key point is, that we have defined the 4-pin jack, that has digital and precision analog interface, and may interface quasi just any type of sensor you would like, from resistive (as pt1000 temperature sensors), thermocouples (since silicon offers internal amplification), digital sensors, as it offers 1-wire, uart, i2c, ... and of course, it may also power the board. By other means it extends the phone with various interfaces. So we started with the thermometer application, as first, other are in progress. If you are an electronics guy you may add sensors of your own and use the open API, or there is also a possibility to show sensor data without programming anything, by using our message layer protocol (which can be stored in i2c device).
