• Wearable Wireless Heart Rate and Physical Activity Monitor With User Feedback

    Weareable Wireless Heart Rate & Phys Activity Sensor w/ User Feedback Update: - PCB has been designed, 4'x1'; small and low power design. - Motion Sensor is being evaluated and tested, same with SD Card code - Cloud-Configuration upates are ongoing for perpetual connection to server and continuous data write-back/confirmation.

  • Servo Control in Soil Strength Testing

    As of now, our team has split up the remaining tasks for this last term. We need to compose a 10 minute starter video for our product that we can broadcast at the engineering expo since we cannot bring our product there. We have also finished making our contact cards and are in the process of ordering them for the expo. Finally, the poster is in the process of being created alongside the video.

  • Communicating POV Bicycle Display

    We have finally made some big steps towards getting our project prototype up and running. Our project has ran into difficulties in the transition from bread board to prototyped printed circuit board but we now have functioning prototype that allows us to program it from the graphic user interface. This is great victory but there is still plenty to complete over the next week and a half in preparation for final check off.

  • Personal Calorie Counter

    In these last two weeks our group has worked on completing different pasrts for our final project. We all met and looked over our final PCB design and all group members approved it. We then ordered it and are waiting for the boards to ship back. We've also met up to go over our parts list in detail and make sure that all parts that we ordered will work with our design.

  • Autonomous Mapping Robot

    Some major progress was made this weekend for the drone control system. Due to the huge error rate while trying to calculate the drone angle with magnetometer data, this processing was moved to the FPGA using a lookup style module for the arctangent calculation. This reduced the transmitted data from 4 bytes to 1, and in testing was much more stable. Once the drone is reassembled, higher level testing can continue. Construction of the second drone was also continued and should be completed soon.

  • Powered Longboard

    Here at team Turbo we are moving into the final phase of Turbonix development. Our efforts will be focused on two main issues. The first issue is the range of our remote. Although our remote works, its range is shorter then expected. Secondly, we will attempt to reduce the jerking motion that riders experience when the board begins to move. If these issues can be smoothed out, we'll be ready to rock!
