I am working on a project to develop a wireless body area network where accelerometers will be placed on different parts of the body and send date wirelessly to a base station connected to a PC. I looked at your evaluation kit EV-ADRN-WSN-1Z and found it very reasonable for this application. My question is about the received raw data at the basestation, we need some method to extract the raw acceleration data with real time stamps at base station to be used later one by some custom built GUI to extract useful information, will that be possible and how?
Also can we accommodate more sensor nodes than only two provided by the development kit.
I assume you are referring to ADRadioNet protocol, the raw sensor data can be viewed in the ADWSN-UI tool provided with the package along with sensor data graphs. The time stamp of the received sensor data is also displayed on the Monitor and Control window of the ADWSN-UI tool. I suggest you to download the package and refer to "ADRN01-All-in-One-GettingStartedGuide-v2.0.1" provided in the Docs folder of the package for any further information.
hope this helps,
Thanks for your feedback, useful indeed. My application requires to read only the received accelerometer sensor data and then apply some statistical and digital operations on that raw of data before can be displayed on some developed GUI. The important question is how to ready the accelerometer sensor data packets from the gateway node? any suggestions on this
The communication between the Center Point and ADWSN-UI tool is using UART with defined packet format. The ADWSN-UI tool and Center Point initially exchange the configuration information between them using the UART packet format once the device is selected. After that the sensor data packet is exchanged between them. In your case you need to develop a small application/GUI which can send these command to the Center Point. The packet formats and information on how sensor data is received is provided in the following links.
