STMicroelectronics launched SensorTile.box to help everyone from beginners to expert designers develop for the IoT and collect and send sensor information to the cloud. The IoT plug and play module connects via Bluetooth Low Energy to a smartphone, monitoring sensor functions such as a pedometer, asset tracker, environmental monitor, or other instruments. For experienced designers, SensorTile.box provides developer and expert modes that help build sophisticated applications using a graphical wizard or by writing custom embedded code.
SensorTile.box contains ST MEMS devices for motion, context, and environmental sensing in a robust 57mm x 38mm x 20mm IP54 plastic container, ready to use with a 500mAh lithium battery and 8GB microSD card already fitted. Extra flexibility in developer mode lets users activate or shut down individual sensors to optimize power consumption, leverage sensor fusion by combining data from multiple sensors to improve overall accuracy, and individually calibrate sensors after final assembly using dedicated internal routines. In addition, the LSM6DSOX machine-learning core and AI extensions to the STM32Cube development ecosystem allow advanced users to run neural networks for sophisticated pattern recognition such as activity tracking and audio-scene classification.
