Adrian Fernandes, TI’s Customer Experience Manager, will be prototyping an internet connected fall detector using the Educational BoosterPack MKII along with an MSP432 LaunchPad and a CC3100 BoosterPack.

In this training, attendees will be introduced to the new Educational BoosterPack MKII for the TI LaunchPad MCU development kits. This new BoosterPack is jam-packed with features, including a 3-axis accelerometer, TMP006 infrared temperature sensor, OPT3001 ambient light sensor, color LCD with backlight, 2-axis joystick, RGB LED, microphone, buzzer & more.

Attendees will get an overview of the BoosterPack and the various software tools and resources available for rapid prototyping your next application. In this session, we will create a fall detector, which will use the 3-axis accelerometer to measure G-force. If a falling motion is detected, we will buzz the buzzer, print diagnostic data to the LCD screen & blink the RGB LED. We will use Energia, an open source programming tool for writing our software.
