Installation On MacOS

Prerequisites

Download and Install Qeexo AutoML on MacOS

If you have previously downloaded and installed Qeexo AutoML application on your laptop, and it is the most updated version, please skip this section and jump to Setup Arduino Nano 33 BLE on MacOS section.

Please keep your Qeexo AutoML application up to date as Qeexo periodically release software updates to fix bugs, improve performance, or add features. You can either Update Qeexo AutoML Software automatically or manually.

Qeexo AutoML DOES NOT currently support Apple Silicon devices including Apple M1 / Apple M2 processors. Although you are free to bypass it, please do so AT YOUR OWN RISK, as some feature may not perform as expected and may lead to kernel panic to the device. Known Apple Silicon based issues can be found in the Qeexo AutoML’s release note.

We encourage you to reach out to support@qeexo.com to report any issues you have encountered.

1. Once you registered and logged into your Qeexo AutoML account through https://qeexo.com/ , Please visit this link, select Qeexo AutoML Software, then select macOS to download the latest installer.

2. Once the installer - QeexoAutoML-installer-macOS.pkg - is downloaded, double-click it to install it.

3. Click Continue, then read and click Agree on the license agreement to continue installing.

4. Leave the destination as default and click Install to continue installing.

*When prompted, enter the system password (or Touch ID, if applicable) to allow the installation of the new software on your laptop.

5. After installation, click Close to finish.

6. Now you should see AutoML application by clicking Launchpad on your laptop. Or you can find it from your laptop’s Applications folder. Once you see the icon (shown as below), click it to run it. Then you should see Qeexo AutoML application running on the menu bar.
- This should run automatically after install.

Setup Arduino Nano 33 BLE on MacOS

1. Connect the micro-USB cable between the Arduino Nano 33 BLE module and your laptop.

2. Before starting development with Qeexo AutoML, quickly double-press the single white RESET button (shown as picture above) on the sensor module to get it ready for flashing.

3. Both the green and the orange LED lights should light up on the sensor module. This indicates that the module is powered and in normal state.
*If both LEDs do not light up for some reason, pressing the reset button once would help.
*Check this note ONLY IF you have gone through building a ML models process, otherwise IGNORE.
When flashing firmware to Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense module, the green LED will light up and the orange LED should slowly blink. In certain new Arduino firmware, both green and orange LEDs light up, instead of the orange LED slowly blinking.

Your device now is ready to flash in Qeexo AutoML

Run Qeexo AutoML

Open your browser, navigate to Qeexo AutoML and log in with your Qeexo AutoML account. Then you can start building your Machine Learning project in Qeexo AutoML.


Installation on Windows

Prerequisites

Download and Install Qeexo AutoML on Windows

Setup Arduino Nano 33 BLE on Windows

1. Connect the micro-USB cable between the Arduino Nano 33 BLE module and your laptop.

2. Check if your laptop connects the Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense module. Right click “This PC”, go to “Properties” → “Device Manager”. Or you can also search “Device Manager” in Windows search bar. Once you opened “Device Manager” window, if there are two ‘USB Serial Device (COM*)’ show up under ‘Ports(COM and LPT)’, the device is connected successfully.

3. Before starting development with Qeexo AutoML, quickly double-press the single white RESET button on the sensor module to get it ready for flashing.

4. Both the green and the orange LEDs should light up on the Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense module. This indicates that the module is powered and in normal state.
