During semester one, first year students from the Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering courses at Letterkenny Institute of Technology undertake the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Robot Build & App Development project as part of the Introduction to Electronic Engineering module.
Each student builds their own Bluetooth controlled robot and develops an app for their Android or iOS smartphone or tablet to control the robot. The PSoC 4 BLE microcontroller by
Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (Cypress.com) an Infineon technology company, is the brain of the robot. The Cypress PSoC 4 BLE device is a programmable embedded system-on-chip that integrates a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio.
Students were allocated 4 hours for app development and 2 hours for robot build & test, completed over the duration of the semester under the guidance of Electronics Lecturer Martin Bradley and Senior Technical Officer James Molloy.
