A project log for HiveTracker

A tiny, low-cost, and scalable device for sub-millimetric 3D positioning.

Are you a hardware dev, or full stack dev? (software and firmware!)

Do you know how to use a JTAG probe, GCC, etc?

Did you already build your own HiveTracker clone, or get one form us?

This post should help.

1) Complete your kit with photo sensors:

...and maybe a logic analyser:

2) Follow the flashing tutorial:

- - -

3) Software time!

All of this is still in progress but you can find good starting points here :

- Blender: https://github.com/HiveTracker/Kalman-Filter

- Bonsai: https://github.com/HiveTracker/bonsai-interface

- WEB BLE (javascript): https://github.com/HiveTracker/hivetrackerjs

- Unity: https://github.com/HiveTracker/HiveTracker-unity 

- - -

TODO list:

- Make current BLE firmware more robust
- Embed calibration (to allow the trackers to measure bases coordinates)
- Embed filtering/fusion (Kalman, etc)
- Web BLE visualizations (cross platform w/ JS!)
- LightHouse V2.0 adaptation w/ FPGA
- Cost optimizations...
