A high-resolution sensor node from JeeLabs:

The JeeNode Zero is intended as sensor node in a Wireless Sensor Network. This requires:

  • a sensor we can read out periodically, such as the BME280
  • being able to sleep with a very low current, as recently described
  • the ability to run the node unattended, i.e. without FTDI cable
  • formatting and sending the collected sensor readings over RF

So far, all development has been performed through FTDI. To run unattended, we’ll need to cut that umbilical cord and make the node start up by itself from a battery.

Details at JeeLabs homepage.
