TI has announced the availability of their Bluetooth low energy SensorTag kit. With a downloadable SensorTag App and sample applications, the kit removes the barriers to entry for smartphone app developers who want to take advantage of the growing number of Bluetooth low energy-enabled smartphones and tablets. The kit lists for $25 from TI with backordered status and a prospective ship date in mid-November. In the kit’s single SensorTag are 6 low-power MEMS sensors and Bluetooth low energy radio powered by a single coin cell battery. The SensorTag’s built in sensors includes TI’s TMP006 IR MEMS temperature sensor, humidity sensor, pressure sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. The tag is capable of communicating with most of Apple’s iDevices via the app. In order for a PC to communicate with the SensorTag, TI suggests using the $49 CC2540 USB Evaluation Module Kit which connects using the BLE Device Monitor software.

For more information see the SensorTag wiki and download the kit Quickstart guide.

    Used the SensorTag for a recent project, developed an iPhone App that uses the SensorTag to monitor weight training, counts the number of repetitions and breaks it down into the type of movement the individual did, e.g. push, pull or curl here the link https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/weight-training-genie/id650541393?mt=8
