Description

In a galaxy far, far away...

A droid named BB-8 needed to communicate large amounts of data to the rebellion so large super computers could analyze and explore the remote planet of MyOfficeCube.

Equipped with only a short range communicator, BB-8 was forced to proxy it's sensor data to a local node and pass it through it's broadband connection to rebels AWS outpost.

We begin our adventure as BB-8 connects to the lone Intel Edison and starts its transmission...


This project will connect a Sphero BB-8 to the AWS-IOT via an Intel Edison.

Once connected the BB-8 will be set loose in a space and begin transmitting sensor data to AWS.

Sensor data available on BB-8 includes:

Temperature Location (based on 2D internal map set from start) Acceleration Gyroscopic reading Odometer Velocity Collision Detection

To get started in our project, we are going to be collecting BB-8's location including:

X-Position Y-Position X-Velocity Y-Velocity Speed Over Ground

BB-8 will be moving in a random direction, switching it's direction every 5 seconds. These values will be transmitted up to AWS-IOT every 5 seconds.
