BLIP2 standalone setup with wifi

Hi,

I have recently obtained the BLIP2 kit, and am planning to setup the People Counter demo as a standalone with wifi connection.

I have managed to get the BLIP2 working on the GUI on my laptop.

According to the User Guide, to be able to setup the wifi connection, I will need to purchase the wifi module from Gainspan.

Could someone help me out before I make the purchase:

(1) Am I right to say that after all the wifi module configuration, I can just start the BLIP2 GUI on my laptop as per normal (connected to the same wireless network), and it will just work?

(2) Do I need to sign up to Thingworx cloud service to enable the BLIP2 wifi configuration to work? Because when I click the link in the User Guide [Section 3.14.4.4 Viewing analytics results in Cloud], it prompt me for Username and Password.

Thank you.

    Hi YC,

    1) The step by step procedure about usage and configuration of the Gainspan module is described in the section 3.14.4 Annexure of the document UserGuide.pdf which is available when the user installs ADVisionSensorController-PI-Rel1.0.6 GUI. The steps to follow while connecting to a WiFi network are also described in the section.

    2) I will get back to you on how to proceed to view the results on ADConnect mashup within a couple of days.

    Regards,

    Neeraj

    Hi YC,

    Apologies for the delay while we are working out the ADConnect details, meanwhile if you want to get started right away, here is another thread which might help if you want to use another Cloud platform - WiFi packet format?

  • Hi Neeraj,

    Thanks for the info. I will proceed to procure the Gainspan module first; while waiting for any feedback that you have.

  • Hi Neeraj,

    It's been a while. I have just purchased the Gainspan module, and am able to setup the wifi connection.

    But I am still unable to view the results on ADConnect mashup.

    When I clicked the link, a web browser opened and state that it's private, and requires Username and Password to login.

    Please advise ASAP.

    Thank you.

    Hi YC,

    Right now we are working on migrating the instances to a different address. Also we are looking at providing the access to view the results with the current mashup.

    I will get back here as soon as I have an updated information.

    My apologies for the delay.

    Thank You & Regards,
