Asset Tracking Demo: Track the journey of a package using Motion Sensors

  • Posted Date: 08 February 2018

  1. The reference design records motion sensor data and critical sensor events on a SD card
    • Components used: FXAS21002 + FXOS8700 9-axis sensors, FRDM-KL25Z MCU and 4GB microSD card
    • Firmware: Enables logging of 9-axis motion sensor data and critical events to a .csv file in the SD card
    • Sensor Data logged: Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Gyroscope and Timestamp (at a rate of 100Hz)
    • Motion Events logged: Shock, Freefall, Angular Velocity Anomaly, Orientation Change and Magnetic Anomaly
  1. The Asset Tracking software is launched on a Windows PC to analyze the motion profile of the package.
  2. The software reads the SD card data, generates the motion profile locally and sends it to the cloud.
