I’ve built a solar-powered bike tracker for my bike using the Boron and Adafruit GPS feather breakout.
I’m excited about the new firmware with sleep functionality but until it’s out, I wonder what I could do to approximate its functionality?
I have a vibration sensor attached to D8, so I know if the bike is being moved.
What I’d love is to be able to:
-sleep if stationary >3 minutes
-wake on vibration or 2 hours have elapsed (I want to be able to report air temperature and quality)
I have tried to attach a vibration sensor to the TPL5111 enable timer to approximate the above functionality, but the vibration sensor’s “pulse” is too short to reset the TPL. I can wire a trigger, or just replace the TPL with a smaller microcontroller, but that all seems like overkill.
Is there a way I can approximate sleep in the Boron with the current firmware?
Thanks a lot,
