Enabling Software

Data Acquisition and Display Software for Sensor Systems

Shimmer provides a number of enabling software applications to support users of the Shimmer platform. This allows users to quick configure Shimmer for data acquisition, storage and display of sensed data captured specific to their project or application requirements. Our newest Software Consensys has just been released and similar to all enabling software below works in conjunction with Shimmer’s stock firmware. All enabling software applications are made freely available to current customers and users of the Shimmer platform.

All New Consensys Software

Consensys focuses on simplicity for the user. The seamless transfer of logged data and timely notifications of updated firmware have been built in as standard. With ease of use as one of its key features, the transfer, configuration, transfer and storage of your data has become much easier.

Enabling Software Applications

ShimmerCapture for Android

ShimmerCapture for Android allows users to connect, configure, log and stream data to the Shimmer2r or Shimmer3, and is compatible with the Android Device. The application is simple and intuitive and allows for the user to plot sensor data as well as save it to a file.

Shimmer 9Dof Calibration for Android

The 9Dof calibration for Android application allows for the mobile calculation of the calibration parameters for the accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer sensors on the Shimmer 2r and Shimmer3.
Once calculated, the calibration parameters can be stored to the Shimmer memory and recalled by other applications allowing for automated calibration of the sensor data.

ShimmerCapture allows users to display and save data received from Shimmer devices streaming over Bluetooth. Shimmer Capture works in conjunction with the Shimmer3 LogAndStream firmware to allow simultaneous streaming of data over Bluetooth as well as the logging of data to the on-board microSD card.

The application allows the configuration of a range of parameters on the Shimmer3, and is designed to demonstrate Shimmer’s functionality.

Shimmer9DoF Calibration Application

Shimmer 9DoFThe Shimmer 9DOF Calibration Application Rev0.1 provides an automated procedure for calculating the calibration parameters for Shimmer’s integrated tri-axial accelerometer. The calibration parameters can be stored to the Shimmer memory and recalled by other applications to provide calibrated sensor data.

The application also allows the user to determine, enter and store the offset bias for Shimmer’s tri-axial gyroscope, to enter calibration parameters for a tri-axial gyroscope and magnetometer and store these parameters to the Shimmer memory where they can be recalled by other applications.

This allows the plotting of CSV (Character Separated Values) data. It is designed specifically for Multi Shimmer Sync users to plot the data they have logged.

However, the application can be used to plot data from any other types of CSV data, as long as the data has been stored in columns.
