Inspirations for your Creativity

We know that forcing your creative juices to come up with original projects ideas within a period of time can be daunting and difficult. Here are some Wio Terminal TinyML related projects to help you get started with coming up with your own idea!

Artificial Nose with TinyML and Wio Terminal

There is really no limit when it comes to TinyML despite its low-power consumption. Benjamin Cabé, an IoT maker, used machine learning (TinyML) on the Wio Terminal and several gas sensors to create an artificial nose. This is no ordinary nose, this artificial nose is able to accurately predict the different kinds of alcohol around it! 

It is also known as a “wine tasting” AI device due to this feature. It is done by using a Grove – Multichannel Gas Sensor V2, a gas sensor from Seeed’s Grove ecosystem that is able to detect a variety of gases such as Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Ethyl alcohol (C2H5CH), and many more. 

In this example, the data acquired from the gas sensor is then used to create a dataset via TinyML with the different kinds of booze available such as Vodka and El Loro. This project significantly represents the versatility of the Wio Terminal with TinyML.

TinyML Weather Station

A typical weather station would involve connecting sensors to a microcontroller platform and inferring the data collected afterwards. With TinyML, a maker from Seeed Studios is able to make a Smart Weather Station.

With an onboard TensorFlow Lite Model, the Wio Terminal is able to use the real-time temperature and relative humidity data to make half-hourly weather predictions! 

In this example, the dataset was built with Edge Impulse with the data and deployed in the Wio Terminal. The weather predictions will be useful for farmers to be prepared for the weather changes. For instance, farmers will be able to safeguard the crop in advance against adverse environmental conditions such as thunderstorms and deficient rain. Anticipated weather conditions that may aggravate plant diseases or lead to pest and insect intrusion can allow farmers to take preventive measures for damage control.

This is only one of the many TinyML applications for agriculture. There are also implementations that can analyse crop sustainability and also evaluate farms for the presence of diseases, pests or malnutritions with temperature and precipitation data. There is no limit to your creativity with TinyML!
