Project description

Attys is a lightweight bluetooth DAQ box which can measure anything from temperature to ECG.

Required packages under Linux

For Ubuntu Linux install attyscomm attyscomm-dev:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:berndporr/attys
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install attyscomm attyscomm-dev

For other Linux flavours install them from souce:

Quick start guide

Here are the basic steps how to use the API:

# load the module
import pyattyscomm

# Gets the AttysScan class which scans for Attys via bluetooth
s = pyattyscomm.AttysScan()

# Scan for Attys

# get the 1st Attys
c = s.getAttysComm(0)

# if an attys has been found c points to it. Otherwise it's None.

# Start data acquisition in the background

# Now we just read data at our convenience in a loop or timer or thread
# if data is available you can read it from the ringBuffer

while (not c.hasSampleAvilabale()):
      # do something else or nothing

# getting a sample (array of all Attys channels)
sample = c.getSampleFromBuffer()

# do something with the sample

# rinse and repeat!

API documentation

Query it via the python help system:

import pyattyscomm

The Python classes have been generated with SWIG. The header files AttysComm.h and AttysScan.h provide detailed info about the classes:


On github are two python demos: one which prints the ADC data to the screen and one which plots it with matplotlib.
