ST makes IoT sensing accessible with IoT plug and play, ready to connect to Microsoft Azure
STMicroelectronics is launching SensorTile.box to help everyone from young people to expert designers discover the power of IoT and quickly understand how they can easily collect and send sensor information to the cloud.
The flexible IoT Plug and Play module connects easily with Bluetooth Low Energy to a smartphone, allowing users to watch the sensors function as a pedometer, asset tracker, environmental monitor, or as other instruments. For more experienced designers, SensorTile.box provides developer and expert modes that help build sophisticated applications using a graphical wizard or by writing custom embedded code.
Attracted by its ease of use and relevance to all users across its full range of customers from consumers and beginners to IoT professionals, SensorTile.box will be showcased as a new demonstration platform for Azure IoT Central, which simplifies connecting smart devices to the cloud for data capture and analysis.
SensorTile.box contains ST MEMS devices for motion, context, and environmental sensing housed in a robust 57 x 38 x 20mm IP54 plastic container, and is expected to be available from the beginning of June.
