databot™ 2.0 provides easy access to sensor data no matter what software you like to use! Out of the box it will connect easily to the Vizeey™ app and you’ll be up and working with live sensor data within 60 seconds. If you already have a favorite software solution for visualization and analysis it’s easy to export data from databot™ in common formats that are readily accessible. The following is a quick list of some of the software applications that databot loves to work with!
Vizeey™ is our smart app (IOS or Android) that databot™ connects to wirelessly right out of the box. It is super easy to use and can be installed, connected to databot™, and streaming data in less than 60 seconds!
The Vizeey™ user experience is very simple. You scan QR codes on databot™ lesson plans and they will load in pre-configured experiments displayed as icons in the app. Simply turn on your ‘bot, tap the icon of your experiment, and you will be connected and visualizing data right away!
Vizeey™ has tools for data analysis built in, plus you can easily export the data in a variety of formats (Excel and CSV) in a couple of clicks for you to import into Google Sheets, Excel, or any other data analysis program you like to use.
Using an awesome Excel Add-In called Data Streamer, you can connect wirelessly to a Windows machine with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and stream live sensor data, straight from databot™, to your Excel spreadsheet.
Microsoft has a program called “Hacking STEM” in which they offer free teaching resources and tools like Data Streamer to facilitate hands-on, STEM activities. databot™ makes integrating live data with tools like Excel a snap.

Arduino Fans Rejoice
Yes, databot™ 2.0 is still completely Arduino compatible and can be programmed and controlled using the beloved Arduino IDE. For many technical educators and hobbyists, the Arduino IDE is the go-to software for experimenting, playing, coding, and interacting with all kinds of crazy physical computing devices. Just do a quick search for crazy Arduino projects and you’ll get the picture. databot™ comes with all the technical details provided that you need to take control of the hardware using the Arduino IDE. Customize anything you want! This tool also enables you to change the behavior or use of databot™ for other software applications – for example, preparing it to connect to Excel through Data Streamer.
Wowzuh! Geeks, nerds, and coders grab a databot™ and Go Forth and Explore!
