TI is producing a sensor device with six functions for $25.

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Pressure
  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
  • Magnetometer

That’s less than $5 per measurement.  Most would be useful in a home environment connecting to a smart phone or personal computer.

Such low cost equipment could be part of an infrastructure that helps families to support independent living of older and other vulnerable people.  The data from such a device could be combined with data from smart meters, and other equipment monitors, to give insight into daily behaviour patterns.
