Everything you need to get started on the 2019 Telstra Innovation Challenge

What's in the University Kit?

In your university welcome pack, you should have;

  • 1x Arduino MKR NB 1500
  • 1x Adafruit Ultimate GPS board
  • 1x GPS antenna
  • 1x Temperature and Humidity Sensor
  • 1x Gyroscope and Accelerometer board
  • 1x Telstra Sim Card
  • 1x Micro-USB Cable
  • Several Header Connectors (Male-Female)

Setting up your Arduino

  1. Download the Arduino IDE
  2. Install the Arduino MKR NB 1500 board;
    1. Open the Arduino boards manager
      arduino-boards-manager-menu
    2. Search for "MKR" and install the libraries for the MKR NB 1500
      arduino-boards-manager-window
    3. Select "Arduino MKR NB 1500" from the boards menu.
      arduino-select-nb1500
  3. Connect your Arduino MKR NB 1500 to your computer
  4. Put your SIM card in the Arduino
  5. Test your board using the Test Modem sketch under File > Examples > MKRNB > Tools

Using the GPS module

See Adafruit's guide for using the GPS module

Using the temperature and humidity sensor

See Adafruit's guide for using the temeperature and humidity sensor

Note that you have been supplied a DHT11 temperature and humitidy sensor.

Using the gyroscope and accelerometer board

See this guide for using the gyroscope and accelerometer board

Connect your Arduino to Microsoft Azure IoT

See this guide for connecting your Arduino to Microsoft Azure IoT

You can’t perform that action at this time.
