SmartBug Multi-Sensor Wireless Module

Invensense's SmartBug leverages TDK MEMS sensors and algorithms for a wide range of IoT applications

Image of TDK/Invensense's SmartBug Multi-Sensor Wireless ModuleInvensense's SmartBug (MD-42688-P) is a multi-sensor wireless module that leverages TDK MEMS sensors and algorithms for a wide range of IoT applications.

This module combines six sensors, a powerful wireless (BLE) MCU, seven algorithm-driven features, and a rechargeable battery all in a small ladybug enclosure. It also comes with the option of an add-on board that includes a Wi-Fi module, an SD card slot, and an ultrasonic sensor from TDK.

It is the go-to module for quick and easy access to reliable and smart sensor data. The data from each sensor and algorithm can be accessed out-of-box without the need for any programming, soldering, or extra modifications. This makes it a perfect catalyst for IoT product developers, algorithm developers, and sensor data enthusiasts to better understand real application signatures, environment variations, and multi-sensor/algorithm behaviors.

It includes ICM-42688-P 6-axis IMU, ICP-10100 pressure sensor with humidity sensor, temperature sensor, magnetic sensor, and an optional CH-101 ultrasonic sensor from TDK, creating an all-in-one sensor solution. A unique feature of this module is the provision of smart sensor data from IoT sensor algorithms with customized tuning parameters. The algorithms include door open/close detect, 6- and 9-axis sensor fusion, asset monitoring, HVAC filter monitoring, pedometer, activity classification, gestures, and air mouse monitoring.

The SmartBug data and outputs can be easily visualized, streamed, and recorded on a Windows 10 application also called SmartBug. This application is available for free to download on the Microsoft Store. The application offers great flexibility to acquire data from BLE, Wi-Fi, or USB, depending on the use-case. SD card logging feature also allows autonomous logging of data (up to 32 GB) without any Windows 10 application.
