Test equipment is good, but what do you do with the magnetic compass and accelerometer?

I think what I'd like to work on with this board is some sort of multipurpose test equipment gizmo – a combination scope, generator, curve-tracer, component tester, DMM, etc.

Though I'll probably hook up a display and try coding a Game of Life first :-)

I have a "copter" of some description, except the whole thing spins. There's the central little body, two wings (at 12:00 and 6:00 say), and two arms with small props (3:00 & 9:00), which thrust horizontally, not vertically. Hovering is...a challenge.

My first thought when I got one of those boards was to build a quadcopter, but then I decided that was too conventional, so I elected to build a tricopter. The three motor setup makes yaw control a challenge, as it is coupled with the other degrees of freedom, but that was to be part of the fun. Not gotten very far along, I'm sad to say.

Another nice thing about this board is the built-in USB programming/debug interface – no pod required. It's implemented by a second ARM MCU, a Cortex-M3!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
