At SuperLab.TV we perform research and development of IoT & M2M Development Platforms. Our interchangeable platforms provide engineers, students, designers and business development professionals an opportunity to learn and experiment with the latest Machine-2-Machine and Internet of Things micro-controllers, sensors and advanced communication techniques such as secure Free Space Optics.

SLTV MODEL 1 - Vibration Monitoring


SLTV MODEL 1 (Close-up)

Model 1 Model 1

The SLTV Model 1 focuses on vibration sensors. This unit incorporates an Arduino cellphone shield, accelerometer, geophone and an electric guitar pickup to demonstrate real time vibration monitoring with a graphical LCD (GLCD) and data logging to an SD card.

SLTV MODEL 2 - Temperature Monitoring


MODEL 2 Live Temperature Readings

Model 2

  The chart above graphs the Raspberry Pi oil temperature (F) over 24 hours. You
     can see how the oil temperature closely follows the room temperature chart below.

This chart graphs the room temp (F) in the lab over 24 hours. The jagged up
and down spikes represent the furnace turning on and off in the lab.            

The SLTV Model 2 focuses on temperature sensors. At the core of the Model 2 is a Raspberry Pi submerged in mineral oil. An ioBridge web gateway and two temperature probe widgets post real-time chart readings of the oil and room temperature for comparison. Directly above the oil chamber is an air pump which, when triggered, pumps air into the oil. This causes the oil temperature in the chamber to drop approximately 3 degrees within a few seconds. The air pump can also be manually triggered using the ioBridge iPhone application remotely.
