Hi all.
I have succesfully managed to upload all files of the Bitcloud WSN demo to my Raven kit.
All fuses set correctly :)
All hex/elfs uploaded succesfully :)
.inf usb/serial driver installed alright. :)
It all appears to work!!!
Now I would like to know, where can I go now? I eventually intend to write a simple wireless midi tx/rx program but, being a new programmer, have a long way to go...
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to extend the functionality of this WSN demo? For instance, the demo has a light detector so can the raven have an LDR attached to it to enable this? How would i find out? If not, where to next? ( Oh and thanks to all freaks with the raven advice so far..invaluable .)
Regards,

STeve.

Technically it should be possible to attach any kind of a sensor to the Raven, but Light Sensor is just something from a serial protocol originally created for MeshBean board, so there are no drivers for any kind of sensors for the Raven.

There is full source code for WSNDemo in the SDK, you can change as you wish.

Hi Alex! So does this mean i can theoretically change, recompile and build all the wsndemo software including the hardware uploads and the GUI?

No, you can only change embedded software, but not the GUI application.
