Lucrarea de laborator nr. 8

  • E8.1 Denumire:


  • IoT- Forever flying device (vezi NASA InSight)


  • E8.2 Prezentare generala, scop.


  • Experimentul de laborator prezinta o alternativa de realizare a unui nod de tip Internet of Things conecretizat intr-un dispozitiv de zbor autonom controlabil prin intermediul unui server web. In proiectarea dispozitivului s-au urmarit indeplinirea urmatoarelor deziderate: - capabilitate de efectuare a actiunilor in lumea fizica reala;
    - capabilitate de computing de inalta performanta cu consumuri energetice reduse ;
    - capabilitate de dozare a activare/dezactivare a blocurilor functionale functie de taskul ce este executat;
    - capabilitate de comunicare in topolgii de retele standard (BlueTooth, Wifi, LiFi);
    - capability to perform basic activation functions through a local HMI interface; The goal is to develop an educational vehicle capable of moving through the air, powered by solar energy captured by photovoltaic cells. At the end of the laboratory will be detailed information about modules for the realization of the mobile Internet kings of mobile power sources extracted from the environment;


  • E8.3 Resources:


  • Raspberry Pi2 / 3 platform, web server, FRDM / XMC platform, helicopter engine control interface, Bluetooth modules.





  • E8.4 Helicopter Control Prototype Source:

  • WEB index.php STOP Speed ​​1
    Speed ​​2 Speed ​​3 Speed ​​4 Speed ​​5
    Helicopter Program Source



  • E8.5 Experiment Run / Tracking Mode:

    • Analyze the layout of the helicopter engine control interface;
      Analyze the engine control program and check the functions attached to the two buttons k1 and k2;
      Analyze how the flight platform is powered up; Identify the web server address to control the helicopter;
      Using a browser application on a mobile device or PC, connect to the server address provided by ifconfig; Track the active elements of the page as well as execute the actions attached to the buttons;
    • Solve the proposed problems;


  • E8.6 Proposed Issues:


  • 1. Develop an application that will allow the k1 and k2 buttons to be deployed on the FRDM using the Touch interface. 2. Make an application that will allow the action of a single engine and observe the effect; 3. Develop a solution on FRDM that will allow to determine the current consumption of drive motors;
    4. Develop a solution that will allow determination of the voltage supplied by the photovoltaic cell;
    5. Create an application that will attach to the ACTIUNE5 the Freescale Cup displacement acceleration command; 6. Make an application that will attach the ACTION button6 to the Freescale Cup slowdown control;
  • E8.7 The experiment may be extended to:

  • - Development of data retransmission stations;
    - Achieving zero emission propulsion systems;
    - Establishment of oversight systems;
    - Military applications;
