Mobile Sensor Network: LINC

tn_1377_linc2-1355462709From Postscapes:

LINC is a product from North Carolina engineering firm Techmor that hopes to empower those with no electronics knowledge to create their own mobile sensor networks.

At the heart of the modular system is a LINC Bridge connector containing a battery, wireless radio (Bluetooth 4.0/LE & & Xbee), and microprocessor. A Bridge can accept up to four LINC “Smart Sensors” and one 0-5V analog input sensor. Out of the box there are five available sensor types for you to plug and play into the bridge module; Temperature, Linear Position, Force/Load, Wind Speed and Pressure. More sensor models are expected to be developed after the initial product launch and all come with built-in calibration and unique identifier capabilities.

Once you have the data coming into the sensors and connected to your mobile phone you can use the systems mobile app to view your sensor network output in real-time and either store the data locally or share the collected data through email, text or upload it to the cloud.

  1. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see
    if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she
    has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
