Forget Me Not Design Challenge

This blog is to detail the changes made to my external sensor. (Hot Water) I've had a few days to apply some thought and to review what information was relevant.     In my post here  eLDERmon Graphs  I made this comment   It has highlighted that the Hot Water temperature sketch needs adjusting. Currently it will send if the temperature varies by 0.1 deg, and for this purpose that is too fine.   I really need to apply some logarithmic scaling, or incorporate time i ...
During the Forget Me Not challenge, I was lucky enough to win Tim. Forget Me Not Challenge: Minion of the Week #3   I introduced him here Forget Me Not :  eLDERmon  Tim     Since he was a lone child, I decided to obtain a Dave, along with the famous 'Dart Gun".   They have been rather chatty, but I suspect that's more to do with who goes past.       Xmas Spirit It was time to introduce them to the xmas spirit, and in particular Santa Hats. So ...
Introduction Monday 10/11 Tuesday 11/11 Wednesday 12/11 Thursday 13/11 Friday 14/11   Introduction  As part of the prize for winning the Forget Me Not Design Challenge, I was invited to attend electronica. It was a busy week, but here's a summary of some of the highlights of my trip!     Monday 10/11  The day I was travelling to Munich. Even though the flight itself is only about 1h30, you quickly spend half a day travelling.   I started o ...
We are very pleased to announce that Mark Beckett has won the Community Choice Award in our Forget Me Not design challenge.     Mark developed a brilliant remote monitoring solution for senior citizens called the eLDERmon. Because of his creative design and strong execution, Mark has won an EnOcean EDK 350 Kit       Concerned about the well-being of seniors citizens in his native New Zealand, Mark sought to create a remote monitoring device which would allow caregi ...

It's hard to believe it's been almost 3 months since the start of the Forget Me Not design challenge. As the challenge is drawing to a close, it's a good time to reflect on my performance and progress.   This is my first involvement in a design challenge for Element14. I had mixed feelings when I was chosen as one of the 5 bonus competitors: although there was happiness at having my idea validated, I was disappointed to be starting on the back foot, so to speak, when compared to the others ...

Forget Me Not - Summary

Posted by kipe Oct 24, 2014
Foreword I guess my approach to this challenge was a bit different from other competitors. I didn't set out to solve specific problems, instead I wanted to implement my current system the Way I Want To™. In the meanwhile, it's not a bad idea to add sensors like the ones provided in the EnOcean sensor kit. Even if I didn't achieve all that I wanted to, I sure did accomplish a lot. And best of all, with hours to spare compared to the deadline   Hardware From the get go, my plan was to ...

Forget Me Not - IQU

Posted by dougw Top Member Oct 24, 2014
IQU is an entry in the Forget-Me-Not design challenge aimed at demonstrating Enocean sensors and how easy they are to use. The project intro is here. I have found the Enocean sensors to be most impressive in wireless sensing, smaller than I expected and powered only by small power scavenging devices. There is a lot of software available to monitor these sensors, but this project demonstrates how easy it is to program your own applications to use these sensors. The sensors essentially send wir ...
Prelude Intro, Waiting platform, appliance monitor, weighing machine and Current Sensor IOT Current Sensor, MQTT Base station and The Raspberry Pi Rover System Architecture Prelude  My previous post was a textual summary of work done and I just could not shrink it more. In this post I continue by providing demo videos for the project. I try to explain the working and internals without actually tearing down the modules. For that most of my posts in the past have been short in ...
So, now that this challenge is close to its end, its time to look back at the project: what did I set out to achieve, what happened on the way and how did it work out in the end. Somehow I actually managed to write one blog entry per week (at least in average), thats better than my normal writing speed... First I need to thanks Element14 and all the sponsors for giving out such nice tools to work with, and for providing a project that gave me many up and downs, a great learning experience and a ...
