How to Use databot™

Step 1 - Charge! Use the included mini USB cable to plug databot™ into any standard 5v USB power supply (USB adapter is not included). This can be a computer or a wall charger for your phone or other device. When connected, databot™ should light up and you will see a blinking blue light - this is databot™'s friendly bluetooth beacon.

databot™ will charge fully in about 30 minutes and last for over an hour each charge. You can start using it right away with it plugged in and charging, so let's get some data going!



Step 2 - Meet Your Software

Time for some software!

Phyphox is awesome sensor software you can download easily to your IOS or Android smart device such as a smartphone, tablet, or Chromebook.

Go to the Apple App or Android Play Store and download and run the sensor software 'Phyphox'.



STEP 3 - How to Access the Secret Code!

Phyphox makes it easy to add experiments by simply scanning a QR code. Open Phyphox and look for the '+' as shown here. It will open a menu. Select 'Add experiment from QR code.'











STEP 4 - Add databot™ Sensors

Point your Phyphox QR code scanner at this QR code and stand back for some serious science exploration action!




STEP 5 - Go Forth and Explore

You are now ready to go forth and explore with databot™. Try this:

1) Tap on the CO2 icon & pick the device displayed.

2) Tap on the > play icon and data will begin to display.

3) Gently blow on databot™ and see the CO2 levels elevate!






Once Arduino is setup and installed, you can use your Mac, Windows, or Linux computer to flash new programs that are provided with databot™. For example you can flash a program that will work directly with Excel and the new Microsoft Data Streamer add-in. You can also simply write data to the included SD card and then load it into Excel, Google Sheets, or other programs for analysis. databot™ was designed to be the ultimate data gathering tool. Contact us if you have questions about software, or visit our getting started section for more details on how to set databot™ up and use it. Shown here is a data stream being output directly to the Arduino IDE using the built-in serial plotter function. So many ways to see your data!

Programmed with Arduino and supported worldwide by an enormous community of Arduino users, databot™ is incredibly versatile. You can select from a variety of tools and software that are simple enough to be used by elementary age students or powerful enough to challenge University students. Simply amazing!

Temperature Probe
Connect an external temperature probe via 2.5mm stereo jack input. Plug in the included waterproof temperature probe to instantly gain access to live data for chemistry, life science, and environmental studies.

External Analog Sensors
databot™ LOVES data. The more sensors the merrier so we added this simple 2.5 mm stereo jack input port for connecting additional analog sensors.

I2C Sensors
Did we say databot™ LOVES data? I2C enables databot™ to daisy chain hundreds of additional sensors via a 3.5mm stereo jack input.

Robot Connections
Built-in case connections for LEGO® and fischertechnik® elements. Connect databot™ to your favorite robot and start running data collection missions!

Detachable Baseplate
Also included is a plate for adding a Velcro attachment that enables databot™ to hitch a ride on drones, cars, hot air balloons, bikes, skateboards, pogo sticks and so much more!

databot™ has made it to the shortlist of finalists for the ReImagine Education Award in the ICT Tools for Learning and Teaching category! The Reimagine Education Awards - the 'Oscars' of Education' - reward innovative approaches that enhance student learning outcomes and employability, offering $50,000 in funding to the overall winners. Over 1500 incredible competitors applied for the awards this year and we are humbled to be part of this process and to have made it to this level.
