In recent years, drones have become an extremely popular way of capturing data from places that may be too dangerous, remote or expensive for people to access. They are increasingly being used to support IoT projects in a whole host of end market sectors, from monitoring and surveying in agriculture, to assessing pipeline conditions for oil and gas.
The workshop will provide participants with a working knowledge of the STEVAL-DRONE01 mini drone kit, which will include the STM32 Cortex M-series Microcontroller, MEMs gyroscope, battery management and Bluetooth Low Energy solutions. Updates on the latest connectivity, motor control and MEMs products will also be included in the workshop.
The day covers:
- Introduction to STMicroelectronics IoT solutions
- Building and setting up the STEVAL-DRONE01
- Technical guidance on the flight controller unit running the firmware to control the speed of each connected motor and stabilise the drone
- Understanding the accompanying Bluetooth Low Energy module capable of turning a smartphone running a dedicated App into a remote control unit
Attendees will be able to take-away the evalution kit used in the session.
You will need to bring your own laptop on the day. We will send you instructions on how to pre-load software before you attend. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
Who Should Attend?
The workshop is a practical, hands-on event. It is aimed at hardware and software engineers working on IoT applications and uses drone technology as a typical example to demonstrate the ST solutions available.
