Product comptibility


#1

Hello,
I’m a SAP employee and i plan to buy a GroovePI in order to build several use case for IoT, from your website on the GroovePI main page I can read that it can use over hundred of sensor from Grove Sensors (Seeed).
I check on their website and they just listed 12 supported product (sensors) to work with GroovePI.
For my use cases I need to use this sensor:
Grove - Gas Sensor(MQ3)
Grove - CO2 Sensor
Grove - Temperature&Humidity Sensor (only one listed from supported product)

Also for many of the sensor on Seeed website the following caution mention is highlighted

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module’s hardware or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library

I assume that I will have to build my own library ? since i’m panning to use GroovePI platform, will you be able to partnership with me to develops them ?

Thank you very much for your input, I look forward on your answers
Williams

Dexter Industries has a list of supported sensors.
https://www.dexterindustries.com/GrovePi/supported-sensors/

Note this is just a list of the ones they know will work.

If you want to contact dexter industries I’d reccomend going on there contact page
https://www.dexterindustries.com/contact/

Which they’d most likely tell you to use if they did see this topic.

Thanks @graykevinb for the replying to this post.

I’ll add a few more things here:

  • MQ3 sensor is just an analog sensor and would work with the GrovePi
  • We have seen the CO2 to be flaky for half the users. As in almost half of them workj and half don;t so I wont recommend that sensor
  • DHT pro is a pretty good sensor that we do support

Also, you can find all the sensor examples here
