Hi Ken, 

I will look into how I might achieve that with your code and get back to
you in the coming days. 

Thank you for sharing those links.

I agree that this is a common request. I created a demo for it with
RIOT. See the"Data collection app" link below for the RIOT side of the
demo code. The demo includes bootstrapping code, but see
"_run_sensor_loop" for the loop you're interested in. See pg 4-5 in
Slides for a photo and conceptual drawings. 

It would be great to somehow use your IoT Designer to generate the code!
RIOT's SAUL API removes a lot of the board/sensor level complexity.
