Example Projects

Mobile robot-based projects

- Add sensors and sensor processing to do complex tasks (vision tracking, velocity control and path planning, formation following) - Examples include:  Temperature sensing and reporting on the web  A method to monitor your home via the web  A method to monitor a warehouse via intruder sensing and video feed to a remote site  An autonomous snow blower

Example Projects

RFID-based projects

- Use an RF reader to identify items in a refrigerator and their expiration dates and keep this information in a database that can be remotely assessed over the web - Use an RF reader to identify people (assume RF tags are on an ID badge) and equipment and use a database to control the lock on a door to determine if a particular person can take that piece of equipment out of the door - An RFID-based pet feeding system, that dispenses food only to tagged pets at appropriate times - An RFID-based method to identify if all cars in a lot have permits

Example Projects

More wireless projects

- Automatically dispense drinks from a vending machine based on a wireless input, check the availability of funds, and manage the account through the web - Read the buzzcard upon entry into the on-campus bus system and bill users accordingly - Display restaurant menus on a hand-held device, allow orders to be make through the device, and produce a bill and enable payment though the hand-held device - Build a sound system that replaces wires between guitars and amplifiers with a wireless connection - Build a sound system where you can select the audio stream in a sports bar

Example Projects

Gaming projects

- Build an electronic chess board - Build an interface to enable the use of games from multiple manufacturers on a single display - Build an automatic hockey player, so that a user can practice without a partner - Adapted Pokemon to a tablet - Develop an electronic Rock’em Sock’em

Example Projects

Home automation projects

- Automatic lighting system with sensors that detect external lighting, automatic control of blinds, and automatic adjustment of internal lighting - Adaptive thermostat using Bluetooth - Web-based remote control of AV equipment - An system that silences a stereo system whenever a room is empty

Example Projects

Sensor projects

- Use IR sensors to determine if someone is in the path of a sprinkler, and if so, turn off the sprinkler - Use sensors to display the number and locations of available parking spaces in a parking lot - Use sensors to detect rain for an automatic windshield wiper system - Use sensors to detect tire pressure for an automated tire pressure maintenance system

Example Projects

• • •

Automatic display projects

- Perform frequency analysis of music and display lights or water pumps according to the frequency spectrum

Speech recognition projects

- A voice-activated calculator - A voice-activated remote control

Music players and analysis

- An automated piano player - A Theremin, with frequency analysis to train the user

GTRI Project Idea

Sensor Project

- GTRI Funded - More combat helicopters are lost to low visibility conditions than to enemy fire. - Situational awareness during poor weather conditions is of great importance to Special Operations Forces.

- We need to develop a sensor-based system with processors and displays that is aware during snow, fog, rain, and dust-storms. - It must be of an acceptable size, weight, and power. - No ITAR restrictions.

Beaglebone Black Capes

- http://beagleboard.org/Products/BeagleBone%20Black - The “capes” are the Beagleboad version of the Arduino “shields”: http://beagleboard.org/cape - The Beagleboard is sort of like a Raspberry Pi but quite a bit more powerful and with lots more connector things

Hybrid Digital/Analog Music Synthesizer

- Dr. Lanterman has advised three teams on this - Each team has used “lessons learned” by previous teams - Dr. Lanterman can help out with other music/audio type projects also

Project Ideas by Aaron Lanterman

USB-to-Apple II Disk Controller

- He has several old-school Apple II’s with old school Apple disk drives - He would like to get data directly off the disks without having to hook the drive up to an Apple II and get a serial card for the Apple - It would be cool to have a USB thing for your computer that lets you hook to one of these Apple drives.

- Note that this project is a bit risky, since although the Apple drive is quite well documented, the project probably will involve a bit of reverse engineering.

Project Ideas by Aaron Lanterman

USB-to-Apple II Peripheral Card Interface

- The Apple II allowed plug-in cards with direct access to the bus - It would be fun to run these from a modern computer - He has various Apple II peripheral cards and more are available from ebay

Things to Think About

• • • •

Application -

What are you doing and why is it novel and necessary?


- Who is the customer?


- What is the product development cost, including design cost and parts? What is the manufacturing cost?

Sales Volume

- How many will you sell per year? What is the product lifetime?

How to Get Parts

• • •

Borrow Parts

– VL C363-C356: We have a collection from previous semesters (act quickly)

Buy Parts

– You buy it, you own it – GT Funds – Each group gets a budget of approximately $100 per person in the group; GT owns the parts.

Company loan or gift

Design Process

• • • • • • •

Determine application Write specifications

– How will you measure performance?

Hardware block diagram Software block diagram Determine/order parts Test parts of the project; test subsystems Integrate all parts together


• • • • • • •

Big picture and leadership Hardware Software Component Testing Integration and Testing Cost and Marketing Analysis Reporting

Hand In Information About Yourself
