• Real Time Video Processing/Computer Vision on an FPGA

    Unfortunately we did not get our project completely working. We could not pinpoint the exact problem in the last few weeks we had to work on it. We met enough of our engineering requirements to pass final checkoff however so our focus the past week has shifted to wrapping up things for expo. Our poster has been printed, our business cards should arrive this Tuesday, and we finished our video presentation over the weekend (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwW0_VV9sGVOOG9NdTY2UWpyazg/edit?usp=sharing).

  • AngelBot: High-speed Target Tracking Robotic Gantry System

    We have successfully represented our group at the engineering expo and made solid contacts. We were also very proud of the ways in which we were able to demonstrate our robot to the general public. On the whole, we drew the attention of more people than we thought we would and also drew industry representatives to our display than we envisioned. In this sense, the project was an overall success!

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

    Weareable Wireless HR Group: Here is the Video: https://sites.google.com/a/onid.oregonstate.edu/ece44x201335/presentations It has taken a long while but we're almost to the end of the project cycle. Development will need to continue for a week or two after the expo; mostly a new PCB and changes to the software (I2C, SPI COMM mostly).

  • RF Controlled Landscape Lights

    We were able to pass all of our requirements for final check off. Over the weekend we worked on the production of our senior design presentation video. It took longer than expected due to various bloopers and technical hurdles. We also worked on our business card and will have it printed soon.

  • MusicBox

    And that's a wrap. The musicbox is officially in a stable place and successfully meets all of our design requirements. In using the device in my house, I know that it does everything that I had hoped it would. Playing music has never been easier and never been more fun.

  • AngelBot: High-speed Target Tracking Robotic Gantry System

    We are now almost completely finished clearing out our lab space that we have been using for senior design. Additionally, the track that the gantry was utilizing has been deconstructed. We are in the process of receiving funds back from the school in order to hand over a couple of key components over to our project customer for their future use.

Partner Programs

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Collaboratory program offers students to opportunity to experience real, dynamic project work before senior design.
