BLE Dog fence TI CC2540
Making a BLE Dog Collar – Part 1
The participants for this weekend project:
A dog, who likes rabbits.
A yard without fence
Enter BLE –
TI CC2540 DK http://www.ti.com/tool/cc2540dk-mini
BLE Mini – http://redbearlab.com/blemini/
The plan is to make a Dog Fence FOB that buzz when the dog runs after the oh so funny rabbits:)
So, I ordered a couple of BLE Minis and quickly realised that I didnt want to use an extra MCU attached, I wanted the BLE Mini and a buzzer.
….. MCU 8051…… BLE Stack…. IAR Workbench …. GATTs and GAPS and what not…. ouch
So, also ordered a CC2540 dk, which happened to have a buzzer already attached, happiness and activated a 30 day trial of IAR 8051
Hugely expensive and sadly not usable for 8051 in kickstarter edition:(
Anyways…. lets see if there will be a part 2
Off coding —-
(If success, then I will use the BLE Minis and write a small android dog fence app….. hopefully)
