The R-IoT module allows for sensing movement, processing and wireless transmission through WiFi. It is developed as an essential brick towards creating novel motion-based musical instruments and body-based media interaction.
The R-IoT sensor module embeds a ST Microelectronics 9 axis sensor with 3 accelerometers, 3 gyroscopes and 3 magnetometers, all 16 bit. The data are sent wirelessly (WiFi) using the OSC protocol.
The core of the board is a Texas Instrument WiFi module with a 32 bit Cortex ARM processor that execute the program and deals with the Ethernet / WAN stack. It is compatible with TI’s Code Composer and with Energia, a port of the Arduino environment for TI processors.
A commercial version is available by Bitalino
This R-IoT has been developed initially by the ISMM and PiP teams at IRCAM-Centre Pompidou (STMS Lab IRCAM-CNRS-UPMC) within the CoSiMa project (funded by ANR) and the H2020 MusicBricks and Rapid-Mix projects funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
The Bitalino R-IoT has been developed as a collaboration between IRCAM and PluX, with the support of from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N°644862 RAPID-MIX.
