Favorite Project

Our favorite project this week is the KinetiConnect by Shervin Oloumi. Apart from having a wicked name, the KinetiConnect collects acceleration data from a moving vehicle and sends it to the AWS cloud for analysis and visualization.

Shervin used an Adafruit Circuit Playground board to collect the acceleration data and relay it to the Omega through the UART. The Omega then uses MQTT to send that data up to AWS IoT. From there, Shervin uses AWS Kinesis, S3, and QuickSight to store, analyze, and visualize the acceleration data and to try to glean insights about the road and driver quality.


Amazing project Shervin, we really dig how your project incorporates hardware and the cloud working together to make a useful IoT device.
