to MATLAB, Python & other Desktop applications


I continue the thread from here:

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/cloud-computing/garmin-watch-connectiq-watch-iot-microsoft-azure-platform/

and continue here with the part which is not


GARMIN watch - ConnectIQ-Watch-IoT - Microsoft Azure Platform

     but

GARMIN watch- ANT+ stick- virtual box


to keep those two path separate.
 

Is it possible to create a linux virtual box which can run independendly as a Linux OS, but also as a virtual box running in windows, for a GARMIN watch, which contains all the components for a live-stream to MATLAB, Python & other Desktop applications?

The size should be not more than 2GB, so that it can run on a IntelĀ® Compute Stick STK1A32SC:

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/91064/intel-compute-stick-stk1a32sc.html

as well as on a Jumper EzBook 3 PRO:

https://de.gearbest.com/laptops/pp_647765.html

A virtual box could become a community project which contains all the sensor tables helpful for GARMIN watches.

A linux virtual box running in windows with sensor tables and all the software necessary to stream to MATLAB, Python or other deskop applications.

A linux virtual box running in windows 10 of e.g. Jumper EzBook 3 PRO, which makes it not necessary anymore to install Ubuntu. All software for streaming integrated in a virtual box.

But how can sensor data from a linux virtual box running in windows be streamed to the host windows 10 operating system?

edit:
This is not necessary. MATLAB is also available for LINUX and MATLAB can be installed in a LINUX virtual machine running in windows. No streaming to the host windows 10 operating system necessary.

i.e. through a streaming server. livetracking.io had an integrated open-source streaming server.

Which streaming server could be helpful to stream sensor data from a linux virtual box to the host windows operating system?

An alternative to Jumper EzBook 3 PRO with

with 4 GB RAM  & 64 bit OS (minimal requirement for most Matlab editions)

is the Trekstor SURFBOOK E11B

http://www.trekstor.de/products/notebook/detail-notebook/product/SURFBOOK%20E11B-CO.html

with Ubuntu 18.04 und Mate Desktop

There are also newer Mini 10 PC sticks with 4G RAM & Windows 10 64 bit (minimum for newer MATLAB versions):

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32826816000.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.206d3c00MwHGDE&mp=1

and USB Type-C:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32852962272.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.206d3c00MwHGDE&mp=1

Did someone test those newer devices with Linux?

There are / where so many projects with an ANT+ and Windows for a live-stream from a GARMIN watch:


1. there was a live-stream solution from old-man biking:

https://www.thisisant.com/forum/viewthread/544/

2. there is a live-setup in GoldenChetaah:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/golden-cheetah-users/Gn2fOxUqTFk


4. There was livetracking.io

https://github.com/PeterGamma/What-happened-to-livetrack.io-/blob/master/README.md

6. There where other options for a live-stream which are not available anymore:

https://www.thisisant.com/forum/viewthread/544/

8. GARMIN watch - ConnectIQ-Watch-IoT

which requires Microsoft Power B and the Microsoft Azure Platform

https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/f/discussion/209439/eventhubapp

9. Ant+ USB with LabVIEW

- https://www.thisisant.com/forum/viewthread/7035/

Is there a project with ANT+ windows code tables available, which can be modified? To have a live-streaming solution in LINUX for the only reason that there are no windows ANT+ code tables available is complicated.

I m a person with skills in scripting and debugging of MATLAB scripts and scripts of other PC applications. For me personally, to make this project real takes time.

For the time being, I let go of a real-time stream, even though it s interesting, and go back to the csv import method from GARMIN CONNECT without a live-stream.

I miss a sports watch which is really smart.

I miss a sports watch with an easy to use and contemporary windows 10 interface.

I miss a live-tracking service which is simple and smart, instead of a live-tracking service for data nerds:

https://livetracking.io/

which stops as soon as someone comes which is interested in that service.

https://livetracking.io/ was near to that. And in my few, it could be brought there quiet easily.

I miss a live-streaming service for professionals.

Dave Lustys  ConnectIQ-Watch-IoT - Microsoft Azure Platform solution is near to it. I miss support  for more watches instread of support only for new and expensive watches, and I miss support not only for  the Microsoft Azure Platform and Microsoft Power BI, but also for other platforms and applications.

Darren Hague s project is also ready to go  :).

https://www.thisisant.com/forum/viewthread/6665/

https://github.com/dhague/vpower

But it needs a live-stream without interrupton to an ANT+ stick. In my view, just for indoor activites, that's fine.

When you are ready to carry arround a Jumper Book 3 for 24 * 7, then Darren's project is 24 * 7 ready to go :).

Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO:

https://de.gearbest.com/laptops/pp_647765.html

with more than thousand costumers which are happy with it, I'm one of those  :).

This real-time data aquisition system consists of:

- Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO
- Vivoactive 3
- Polar OH1
- Stryd Foot Pod ( no calibration needed. I have also a GARMIN foot pod, but unfortunately it is not calibrated to this date)
- Darren HagueS ANT+ Virtual Power
- Virtual Box running in Windows with MATLAB

- no Microsoft Azure Platform, no GARMIN connect IQ, no Watch-IoT, but heavy. But not as heavy as an ADINSTRUMENTS channel recorder equipement and not as expensive as an Equivital system, and longer warrranty time.

It is also possible to take a Moximonitor ANT to Serial Converter instead of a ANT+ stick and a virtual Box running in Windows with Python ANT+:

https://www.moxymonitor.com/product/ant-to-serial-converter/

Still a heavy equipement.

Pairing this setup with this mini PC and a battery pack:

https://de.aliexpress.com/item/32852962272.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dvJApcD

but is it robust and stable?

7 inch Windows 10 tablets are rare to find. But what about building up one with a 7 inch display and a Windows 10 mini PC?
