Quick Start Project

Slide Demo

In this guide we are going to walk through a Hello World example project which we refer to as the Slide Demo. The goal of this demo is to familiarize you with the SensiML Toolkit workflow. We have already collected a dataset so you can get going quickly. This project showcases the continuous event type described previously in Data Collection Planning. We will leave the discrete event case for a more advanced tutorial.

We’ve collected example data sets for SensorTile, QuickAI, or Nordic Thingy sources. Download the slide demo project for one of the devices below:

Don’t see your device in the datasets? You can still follow this guide, just note there are differences between the sensor data from devices depending on various factors like sensor orientation and configurations

The Slide Demo has three continuous states. This demo is used to simulate a motor motion. To make this demo more accessible we make these motions with our hand, but in the real world you would attach your sensor to a motor.

Events of interest:

  • Stationary – Board is resting on a desk surface

  • Horizontal – Board is slid back and forth (left to right or forward to back) on a flat surface in a repetitive rhythmic motion to simulate a part moving back and forth

Horizontal orientation for QuickAI, Nordic Thingy, and SensorTile

  • Vertical – Board is lifted in an up and down motion in the air in repetitive rhythmic motion to simulate a part being lifted up and down
