Firmware Modules Overview

Modules are included in the firmware and allow users to extend the functionality of their mesh or device.

The list of current modules is as follows:

NameDescription
Canned Message ModuleSet a number of predefined messages to send out directly from the device with the use of an input device like a rotary encoder.
External Notification ModuleIncoming messages are able to alert you using circuits you attach to the device (LEDs, Buzzers, etc)
Input Broker ModuleAttach and define input devices such as external keyboards and rotary encoders.
Range Test ModuleSend messages with GPS location at an interval to test the distance your devices can communicate. Requires (at least) one device set up as a sender and one as a receiver. The receiver(s) will log all incoming messages to a CSV.
Serial ModuleSend messages across the mesh by sending strings over a serial port.
Store and Forward ModuleSet a designated node to store messages and resend them to nodes with intermittent connection to a mesh.
Telemetry ModuleAttach sensors to the device and transmit readings on a regular interval to the mesh.
