Start prototyping with over 100 different Grove modules from SeeedStudio with LaunchPad & Energia SeeedStudio offers over 100 different Grove sensors and actuators that can interact with the Grove Base BoosterPack for the TI LaunchPad Development Ecosystem. Energia example software & libraries are available for many of the Grove modules as well.

The BoosterPack features full compatibility with the 40-pin BoosterPack pin out standard Plugging in a Grove Module into the Grove Base BoosterPack will enable your Grove sensor or actuator to route the appropriate pins to an underlying LaunchPad. Since this BoosterPack adheres to the BoosterPack standard, each Grove connector will route the analog pins, digital pins & serial communication pins to the underlying LaunchPad.

Have multiple Grove modules connected to your LaunchPad kit Create a complete system of inputs & outputs by simply plugging in multiple Grove sensors and actuators to your LaunchPad.

SeeedStudio Grove for LaunchPad
Grove modules utilize a simple 4 wire connector (VCC, GND, SIG1, SIG2 or NC).

Advanced Examples

Trigger a voice call when your LaunchPad detects water.

In this demo, we are using the MSP430F5529 LaunchPad + CC3100 WiFi BoosterPack + Grove Moisture Sensor. This was programmed using Energia & leveraging code generated by Temboo.

Creating a SubGHz RF sensor network with a WiFi gateway.

In this demo, we created several wireless sensor nodes. Each wireless node features a unique sensor from Seeed Studio, which interfaces to a TI LaunchPad + CC110L Sub-GHz RF BoosterPack + Battery BoosterPack. The SubGHz-to-RF Gateway was created using the CC3200 WiFi LaunchPad paired with the CC110L SubGHz RF BoosterPack. This was all programmed using Energia.
