Bluetooth 4.0LE connection

To connect with the SensBox, the iOS/Android device must be enabled with Low Energy Bluetooth. Bluetooth Low Energy was created by a sub-group of with participation from all major mobile phone manufacturers and is intended for small battery-powered external devices that produce relatively little data. Examples of applications for BT4.0 LE are heart rate monitors, medical devices such as blood pressure monitors, etc. The term “Low Energy” refers to the reduced power requirement for the external Bluetooth device. Flytec decided to utilize this interface for the SensBox and future development because BT4.0 LE is the only open and manufacturer-independent interface for mobile phones and because of the reduced power requirements.

Data Acquisition

With the special high-speed logging firmware installed. The SensBox will record the data of all internal sensors in high resolution at high speed for up to 24 hours. Recording rate is 20 Hz for the magnetic, acceleration and gyro sensors in all directions with the corresponding pitch, yaw and roll values. Pressure-based values such as height and vario are logged at 8 Hz. GPS data is recorded at 5 Hz. The output is saved as *.CSV file and can be further processed in EXCEL.
