Smart Machine with IoT Vibration Monitoring

This demo shows how a vibration sensor attached to a professional machine sends data to the Renesas IoT Sandbox cloud where it is analyzed for vibration levels. Pre-built cloud workflows are provided allowing you to create rules and alerts based on the analytics. The kit can easily be configured and mounted on any machine without the need for any programming. For example, an ideal application would be asset monitoring for industrial applications. You can determine optimum maintenance schedules or alert operators in the event of equipment problems. Start prototyping and monitoring your machines today!

Smart Meter

The Smart Energy IoT demo shows how easy it is to build practical energy-related IoT cloud applications with the RL78/I1C, single chip energy monitoring solution. By connecting the S3A7 Kit to the RL78, you’ll be able to send energy measurement data to the Renesas IoT Sandbox cloud for analysis. Renesas IoT Sandbox pre-built workflows are provided allowing you to calculate greenhouse gas C02 emissions and electricity usage for any appliance or device plugged into the RL78. Energy data can be viewed on your laptop or mobile device. Start prototyping and monitoring your carbon footprint today!

BTLE and Lora

This demo allows two S3A7 boards to communicate directly with each to other via BTLE or Lora. One of the S3A7 boards acts as an "end-node" collecting data from the AMS environmental sensor. The other S3A7 board acts as a "gateway" communicating with the "end-node" and the Renesas IoT Sandbox Cloud.

  • 2 S3A7 Boards
  • 2 Renesas BTLE PMOD modules (Request from Renesas)
  • 3 Linklabs Lora PMOD modules with Ensemble mode (Request from Renesas)
