STM32Cube function pack for IoT node with Wi-Fi, NFC and sensors for vibration analysis, connected to IBM Watson IoT Cloud

FP-CLD-WATSON1 is an STM32Cube function pack. It can connect an IoT node based on the STM32L4 Discovery kit IoT node (B-L475E-IOT01A) or the NUCLEO-F429ZI to IBM Watson IoT, transmit sensor data and receive commands from remote applications.

This package lets you jump-start end-to-end IoT development so that you can focus on adding desired functions.

The software includes a middleware package implementing the MQTT protocol to facilitate interaction between the featured boards and Cloud services.

The package is further extended with pre-integrated algorithms for the processing of accelerometer data which can be used to detect vibration from devices such as motors, fans and pumps. Maximum frequencies and tear/wear conditions of the device under test are reported together with raw sensor data to IBM Watson IoT thus enabling and speeding up development of solutions for industrial condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.

IBM Watson IoT parameter configuration is greatly simplified thanks to the use of NFC. The software runs on the STM32 microcontroller and includes drivers for the featured sensor devices and dynamic NFC/RFID tag.
