The Hardware

The Intel Edison was chosen for this project due to its speed and energy efficiency.

Intel Edison

Acting as the 'brain' for the entire bike system, the Intel Edison controls communication between the Peripheral Monitor system, Seat sensor, and Battery Management System. The Edison 'Master' talks to the Peripheral Monitor through UART while using I2C to translate data received by the Seat Sensor/BMS. This information will then be relayed to the Phone dash via Bluetooth wireless communication that all runs through a python script all in the Yocto Linux Image Operating System.
