EVE Project Connects XBee to Open Source IoT

Posted on: No Comments

The EVE project, from Ciseco out of Nottingham, United Kingdom is a plug in board for the new Raspberry Pi mini computer. The hardware and software together will create a server for connecting various wireless device protocols to a single point. It features an XBee socket for connections to ZigBee, ZigBee Smart Energy, 802.15.4, WiFi, long-range 900 MHz, DigiMesh and 868 MHz radios.

The Raspberry Pi EVE board is the reference hardware for the IoT Toolkit gateway. It’s a work in progress, and is currently raising funding for development on Kickstarter. Presently they are more than 2/3 of the way to their goal, with time to spare. Cisesco’s Miles Hodkinson and I spoke jut the other day about the project and the possibilities for talking to a Raspberry Pi that’s 28 miles away with the new XBee-PRO 900HP. Sound interesting? You can help fund EVE.

Smart Apron: Apron Alert with XBee via DVICE

Posted on: No Comments

Apron Alert is what we like to think of as a modern take on the dinner bell. It’s an apron that automatically alerts guests when the food is ready. Here’s how it works:

The Smart Apron was developed by Smart Design’s Interaction Lab and uses wireless XBee radios affixed to Lilypad Arduinos to create an apron that automatically notifies your diners when you’ve started cooking and when you’ve finished. The apron’s magnetic clasp initializes the signal that is sent to a server program that then relays that signal to smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers following the cook wearing the apron. The entire set-up is lightweight, with the components discreetly stitched into the interior of the apron, and operates using a single AAA battery for power.
