First tests with ESP 32

By Maëlick Brochut February 9, 2020 Discover Check-y project

Hi everyone!

This week was really fun for everybody on the team! We were on holiday, but we managed to work on our project, and actually, we made a lot of progress.

We completed the Wifi communication between two ESP32s. This was performed by Diane, who was under a coconut tree on a Caribbean Island. Indeed, the Resourceful team can work anywhere. We still need to test the communication in a crowded environment, but this is our challenge for next week.

Last week, we bought a conformal coating spray. So this week, we tested it on a simple IMU. After two hours in a salty bowl of water, the coating was still protecting the sensor. Thus, it comforts our choice to keep this technology as a barrier against sweat.

Next week is Milestone 2, and we are still following our schedule, so stayed tuned for next week as we will arrive strong!
