We’re planning to build some tiny external sensor boards that could be used with RuuviTags.
I’ll share more info about boards’ dimensions and pinouts later, but before that, would be great to hear if you’ve got some ideas about sensors you’d like to see available.
Currently, following parts are on the list:
- 9-DoF (acc, magn, gyro)
- IAQ VOC air quality sensor
- Relative air humidity
- High brightness LED
- IR LED
- Push button
Not all the features will be supported simultaneously but a set of different kinds of board variants can be manufactured and made available for order.
Idea behind these external sensor boards is to enable new maker(ish) uses for RuuviTags and also make more serious prototyping with new features quick and easy. These boards and their pinouts are aimed to be be also Grove compatible. Additionally, the next RuuviTag PCB revision may gain a connector compatible with these new boards. This would remove the need of soldering.
