Week 8 - Oct 23 - 29   It's almost time to hit the traffic. This blog will cover up the development of login and registration screens, API and integration of the same in the mobile app. Going through my previous blog Traffic Predictor #7 - Into the traffic [Part 2 of 2]  will help in understanding the progress better. Especially the App (Android) part. Module 1 - Traffic prediction with machine learning APP (Android)   Login Screen        &# ...
Week 7 - Oct 16 - 22   Having set up everything to kickstart the project, this blog will cover up my further progress in moving the device (Nucleo-L476RG kit plus Case) "Into the traffic". This will be the third blog covering module 1. A glance over the previous week's blog Traffic Predictor #6 - Into the traffic [Part 1 of 2] will help you in understanding trafficpredictor project progress better.

Week 6 - Oct 09 - 15        Having set up everything to kickstart the project, this blog will cover up my further progress in moving the device (Nucleo-L476RG kit plus Case) "Into the traffic". This will be the second blog covering module 1. A glance over the previous week's blog #5 will help you in understanding trafficpredictor project progress better. Module 1 - Traffic prediction with machine learning on an added advantage of mass storage capability of the STM32 Nu ...
Week 5 - Oct 02 - 08   This week I have planned to design and build module #1 which would the biggest and the main module in my trafficpredictor project. In this blog, I have covered up the machine learning concept/ algorithm to be used. Along with this, I am going to unveil the case to be used for mounting the Nucleo - L476RG kit in the vehicle.   I am still exploring ways to utilize the kit's storage capacity, once done will share the same in my future blogs. Module 1 - Traffic pred ...
Week 3 - Sep 18 - 24                            Below is the overall layout/ plan of the traffic predictor project Module 1: Traffic prediction with machine learning on an added advantage of mass storage capability of the STM32 Nucleo-64 development board   Components: Hardware Software Nucleo L476RG board Mbed Compiler/ VS Code GPS sensor GMaps API Wi-Fi Expansi ...
Week 4 - Sep 25 - Oct 01   Finally, the kit made its way home. And there you have the stunning pictures of the NUCLEO-L476RG kit.   Below is the code for the "BLINK LED" program which is the "Hello World" program for electronics to test the Nucleo MCU board.   Digital Pins D8 & D13 have been chosen as output pins and have been declared differently. I love the way the LD1 changes from red to green when I feed in the program into the MCU board.   #include "mbed.h" Pin ...
Week 2 - Sep 11 - 17   The Kit is on its way to my place   So far I have received an email from the shipping company with estimated delivery on September 19, 2017. Meanwhile, I did not want to waste my time. Hence I started my quest for the code editor with which I can type and test my code.   Below are some editors I use for electronics coding with its purpose & link.   Editor Purpose Link Arduino IDE For Arduino based development https://www.arduino.cc/en/main/softwar ...
Week 1 - Sep 6 - 10, 2017   Thank you element14 & IoT on wheels design challenge team and all concerned for selecting me to be sponsored with NUCLEO-L476RG kit to compete in the challenge. I received a warm welcome back at my place when I shared about the selection of my project idea by element14. Overall I am thrilled to start my project work to complete it before the deadline November 13, 2017.   Project Modules   The Traffic Predictor project consists of the below three ...
