Setting Up the WICED Smart Platform

Learn to Navigate the Forum

  • Learn to find your way around the WICED Sense forum.
  • When using the search bar, be sure to use "click here to only show results for Bluetooth Forums" when it appears

Download the SDK

  • Download the most recent release for your operating system here: WICED Bluetooth Documents & Downloads
  • You may run into problems with Java, see here: Java Issues....
  • You may need to update your USB drivers as well: Virtual COM Port Drivers
  • The device driver may not have downloaded when you plugged in your WICED Device (pops up in bottom right corner if failed). If this is the case, go to Device Manager>Other Devices. Find BOTH devices associated with your board, double click one, click "Look for Drivers," click "Next" and the download should complete shortly thereafter. Then do this for the second device.

Download LightBlue

  • Allows your phone to be used as a test device for your BLE apps
  • Download in your mobile device’s app store

Learn to Use the SDK

  • Refer to the WICED Smart Quick Start Guide (SDK 2.x and TAG4 Board)
    • Download your first test App. "Heart Rate Monitor" feeds fake data notifications.
    • Connect to the device on LightBlue, listen to its notifications
  • Explore the SDK
  • Explore the API library
    • This is a highly useful tool to have in your arsenal.
    • Normally found in the SDK (WICED-Smart-SDK>Doc>API)
    • But, you may have trouble accessing it that way.
      • Alternate: right-click the link>"Open With">"Web Browser"
    • Get to know the APIs at your disposal through this library
    • When you begin writing your own apps, you will want to heavily utilize this resource.
