Apio lets you create smart objects in five minutes, while its SDK guides you along the way.
Apio is an open-source platform for the Internet of Things, which lets Makers and designers create their own smart systems and connected objects in a matter of minutes. The platform is comprised of two USB devices, the General and Dongle, both of which are based on an ATmega256RFR2 and ATmega16U2, along with a custom operating system and SDK.
The General is a low-cost, low-power board that communicates wirelessly with a Dongle. The Dongle is then tasked with connecting up to 65,000 General units, and through the Apio OS, controlling them via a mobile device or PC.
The General is entirely Arduino-compatible, which means users can write their own code in the Arduino IDE, and features an integrated IEEE 802.15.4 communication channel, the LWM. This allows for every board to “talk” with one another in a wireless mesh network. Apio makes it super easy for Makers to get started right out…
