MCCI Corporation has made their TrueTask USB host stack available to the Raspberry Pi WoA community for non-commercial, evaluation purposes.
If you like the drivers, we hope you’ll support The Things Network New York — scroll down for info.
You can download the drivers as a stand-alone set of files. The drivers are wrapped in an executable. When you run the executable, it will extract the drivers and put them on your system in whatever directory you choose. You then use them when preparing a Windows-on-ARM distribution medium. This option is best for advanced users. Scroll down for instructions on a complete installer.
Using the WoA Deployer
Many users will find it better to use the complete packaged installer from José Manuel Nieto Sánchez, WoA-Deployer-Rpi. This package creates a bootable SD card with all the required components.
You can get an overview here.
Supporting our work
If the drivers work for you, please consider a donation to The Things Network New York, Inc.. This is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity that MCCI’s Terry Moore leads in NYC and Ithaca; they are working to deploy community owned, open source, standards-based, free-to-use IoT networks for remote sensing and smart city applications. There’s a “Donate” link on the TTN NY home page (or you can press the button below).
Note that this doesn’t go to fund MCCI, but rather it goes to fund a cause that MCCI cares a lot about; your contribution will help us (and everyone doing community LoRaWAN networking) in our effort to make IoT a public good.
Here’s what Gale A. Brewer, Manhattan Borough President, has to say about The Things Network New York:
The Things Network lets independent municipal leaders like myself walk down a path that was previously unavailable to government, a third way between a municipal build out of a Wide Area Network and a massive franchise agreement with a private corporation. Together with The Things Network, government may now organize in concert with a diverse coalition of partners to create and enhance services at the local community level.
New York can lead by example, showing American technologists that there is more than one way to do an IoT rollout. They don’t need to be done from the top down, with a government franchise and loads of commoditized data.
