2650 tag IO service for led and buzzer

Postby lb96 » 09:44, 10 Aug 2015

Hi

Is it possible to activate the buzzer and LEDs on the 2650 SensorTag. I've looked through this forum and the code and can't see anything that looks like this is currently supported.

Regards
LB

Our "tisensortag" library doesn't have any functions to access the LED/buzzer service, but it ought to be possible to do it directly. A good starting point might be our example "ti-sensortag-cc2650-demo", which doesn't use the library but instead talks to the tag via "easyble".

This file and this page describe all the available BLE services on the CC2650 SensorTag.

The buzzer has service ID AA64, data ID AA65 and config ID AA66.

So to turn on the buzzer, I might write something like this:

Code: Select all

// Config: remote mode.
device.writeCharacteristic('f000aa66-0451-4000-b000-000000000000', new Uint8Array([1]), function() {
  // Data: buzzer on.
  device.writeCharacteristic('f000aa65-0451-4000-b000-000000000000', new Uint8Array([4]), function() {
    console.log("success");
  }, fail);
}, fail);

This code is not tested at all. Use at your own risk.

Hi

Just started looking at this again and I can get the buzzer working however I'm somewhat confused as to how to get the LEDs running.

The documentation says:

Power on Self Test
Bit Number Description
0 Red LED (LED1)
1 Green LED (LED2)
2 Buzzer

The code to activate the buzzer is:

device.writeCharacteristic('f000aa66-0451-4000-b000-000000000000', new Uint8Array([1]), function() {
// Data: buzzer on.
device.writeCharacteristic('f000aa65-0451-4000-b000-000000000000', new Uint8Array([4]), function() {
console.log("buzzer on success");
}, app.buzzerFail() );
}, app.buzzerFail() );

What i don't understand is what is the value Uint8Array([4]) doing when the docs say the value for the buzzer is 2. What values do I need to get the red and green LEDs to light up?

Regards
LB

Hi

Worked it out:

The Uint8Array values are as such:

1 = red
2 = green
3 = red + green
4 = buzzer
5 = red + buzzer
6 = green + buzzer
7 = all

The buzzer/led value is a bitfield. One can use the bitwise OR operator ( | ) to combine bits.

Values are determined by the formula (1 << bit).

The first bit, bit 0, has the value 1 and controls the red LED. The second bit, bit 1, has value 2 and controls the green LED. The third bit, bit 2, has value 4 and controls the buzzer.

That is how value 4 turns on the buzzer. Similarly, value 1 should turn off the buzzer and the green LED and turn on the red LED. Value 7 (1 | 2 | 4) should turn on all three devices. Value 0 should turn them off.

Newby here, possible embarrassing question.

Am also trying to get the buzzer/leds functioning. Have tried the code presented by lb96 in all manner of ways both in the workbench and in the sample app "ti-sensortag-cc2650-demo"....within a function etc. etc. and after the initialization routines. No luck. Am familiar with reading from the Sensortag........but not writing. Any simple ideas. Thanks in advance for your reply......

Hi

I'm no expert with this stuff however I modified the code in app.js from the TI SensorTag CC2650 Demo. I don't use the workbench and compile stuff using Cordova.

Bingo!......that did it, and can now see where (multiple wrongs) I went wrong. Thanks kindly for posting the code and educating me. Regards

Re: 2650 tag IO service for led and buzzer

Hi!

I followed this example, and I can get the buzzer/LED's to turn on when initializing the app (thanks!), but how do I go about if I want to create a function to turn LED's/buzzer on or off when e.g. clicking a button? It seemed very straight forward - I just created a function inside of app.js using the exact same code as was suggested here:

Code: Select all

app.startBuzzer = function(device)
{
   device.writeCharacteristic(app.sensortag.IO_CONFIG, new Uint8Array([1]), function() {
     
      device.writeCharacteristic(app.sensortag.IO_DATA, new Uint8Array([4]), function() {
      console.log("buzzer on success");
      }, app.buzzerFail() );
   }, app.buzzerFail() ); 
};


Then making a button inside of index.html:

Code: Select all

<button onclick="app.startBuzzer()" class="yellow">START BUZZER</button>


This won't work however. I can see why there would be a problem, since startBuzzer asks for an object to be passed in ("device") and I don't know how to do this (I've tried everything I could think of, "device", "app.device" etc. but I'm a noob so I can't get it to work).

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! :)
