Clayton snuck into the embedded industry from mechanical engineering via developing production test equipment, and picked up a good bit of circuit design and layout along the way. His work currently focuses on the control of DC Charging Systems where he is the lead engineer for Balmar's high output alternator and multi-stage external regulator products. Clayton holds a BSE in mechanical engineering and is in the final year of his Master's of Science in Software Engineering degree with a concentration in embedded systems at the University of Alabama in Huntsville
The talk covers a brief overview of Bluetooth MESH networking and data structures. It then introduces an example application and walks through the dataflow and data models from sensor node to Raspberry Pi datastore (HomeAssistant). A walkthrough of the provisioning process is also covered.
