Build a 6LoWPAN wireless sensor network

Build a 6LoWPAN wireless sensor network

The STM32 Open Development Environment provides developers with end-to-end solutions to explore and validate design concepts. Using a combination of ODE components, it’s now possible to build a wireless sensor network based on 6LoWPAN connectivity leveraging a wide range of sensor technologies and make sensor data accessible via the Internet for further use through a Wi-Fi bridge.

Designed with modularity and ease of use in mind, this comprehensive solution has all the software and hardware needed to jumpstart the development of an IoT wireless network:

  • Pre-built software function pack (FP-SNS-6LNODE1) that provides a sample application that allows RESTful access to the sensors and actuator resources on the IoT node by means of the OMA Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) standard protocol, using the IPSO Smart Objects Guidelines for data representation.
  • Pre-built software function pack (FP-NET-6LPWIFI1) providing an application-level functions implementation to bridge 6LoWPAN IoT nodes with a Wi-Fi network (UDP protocol support only). A sample application is provided to access the resources (e.g. sensors or actuators) on the 6LoWPAN nodes by means of the OMA Lightweight M2M protocol.
  • STM32 Nucleo-64 development board (NUCLEO-F401RE) powered by a high-performance STM32F4 MCU, with support for Arduino and ST morpho connectivity. Includes an integrated ST-LINK/V2-1 debugger and programmer.
  • STM32 Nucleo motion MEMS and environmental sensor expansion board (X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2) featuring an accelerometer, gyroscope and compass MEMS as well as pressure, temperature and humidity sensors.
  • STM32 Nucleo proximity, gesture and ambient light sensor expansion board (X-NUCLEO-6180XA1) designed around the VL6180X proximity, gesture and ALS sensor, based on ST’s FlightSense™ Time-of-Flight technology.
  • Sub-1 GHz RF expansion board X-NUCLEO-IDS01A4 (868 MHz) or X-NUCLEO-IDS01A5 (915 MHz) based on the fully certified SPIRIT1-RF module SPSGRF-868 or SPSGRF-915.
  • STM32 Nucleo Wi-Fi expansion board (X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1) designed around the fully certified SPWF01SA serial-to-Wi-Fi module.
