Using the ANT+ Toolkit as a base, we were asked to develop a small application that was capable of configuring and capturing data for up to 8 MOXY sensors. The data was then made available for further calculation, storage etc. The MOXY-3 sensor uses the ANT MO2 profile to send data to the slave device.
- MOXY-3 Muscle Oxygen Monitor
- ANTUSB-m Dongle
- Windows 7 based PC
- ANT+ Toolkit v1.4.5
- LabVIEW 2015
ANT MO2 Display
The final solution involved the implementation of three profiles, as specified by the MOXY-3 sensor, these were:
- Muscle Oxygen (MO2)
- Heart Rate Monitor (HRM)
- Combined Bike Speed & Cadence (S&C)
It is possible to connect the sensors using wildcard searching, disconnect a sensor and also use the timeout functionality of the ANT protocol during the search process. Once connected, the Device ID of the sensor is automatically requested and displayed on the UI.
