Hi, everyone!   This is my first Element14 design challenge - and hopefully not the last one. First, I have to say thanks to all the sponsors and Element14 for giving me the opportunity to take part in "In the Air" design challenge!   Since I'm a new guy here, allow me to introduce myself I am a software developer with a lifetime passion for electronics (I hope that this will be enough for me to come up with a sufficiently good design in February). RC flying is my other passion t ...
I've been selected as a finalist for the In The Air Design Challenge. Firstly, I must provide this disclaimer:   I am the Senior Electrical Engineer for Hal Technology. I design hand-held and portable gas meters and particle counters. My idea for this project is definitely not a novel concept, but with the improvement in technology it is more viable. Essentially, as is stated in the project descriptions, I will create a Particulate Matter meter to be embedded in Heating, Ventilation, and A ...
Firstly - thanks Element14 and Sponsors. This is an amazing opportunity. As a first reaction, I am a little staggered by the enormity of what I have taken on. My second reaction has been to reach out to people I know for assistance and encouragement.   The environment has long been a passion of mine, and at the same time I have always loved gadgets and building things. With this project I can scratch both itches, and advance my own understanding of electronics, software and agriculture. &# ...
Good morning and thank you to all who applied for the In the Air Design Challenge.  It hasn't been easy for the partners to identify the competitors for this challenge: we received many ambitious (sometimes too ambitious) and detailled proposals.  However, we've selected the following competitors: Janis Alnis (Latvia) Dominic Amann (Canada) Ravi Butani (India) Christever del Rosario (New Zealand) Ambrogio Galbusera (Italy) Dragan Knezevic (Serbia) Crystal Knodel (U.S.) Ryan Lon ...
