Progress in general is that people start experimenting with their PSOC4 kit. Projects start to take shape, in that mostly everyone starts getting their hardware together to start building!
Also, the first posts have arrived that people realize that their first plans may have been to ambitious. Maybe they are, but I encourage you all to see what IS possible with this hardware!
|Who||What||Posts This week||Keywords, Summary|
|Alex Behnaz||Sleep sensor||Analog integration, low power|
|Abhijit Bose||DAS Project; Digital Security Application, Smart Home Security|
LOTS of DEMO CODE!! Thanks!
|Monte Chan||Smart Christmas Lights|
LED lighting, exploring feautures of PSOC kit
Monte showed the following feautures: programming, servo control, interrupts, current output, SPI adressing
|Wojchech Gelmuda||Smight - Smart home lighting|
|Connectivity, lighting, LED|
|Javier Hernandez||Car security / car tracking, cloud service|
Sensors, web connectivity
Javier showed a good demo of how to get bluetooth going using the USART
|Cosmin Iorga||Brainwave based controller||Brainwaves based appliance controller - Update 2|
Analog, user interface, exploration
Installation, general getting around with tooling
|Anthony Kahl||Smart Bicycle Light|
User experience, simplicity of use
This week Anthony looked at which components to use in his bike light (LED, battery, charging)
|Linas Karpavicius||Smart Reflow Oven|
Control algorithm, PWM for SMPS
|Jianyi Liu||SteadyClip, Camera Gimbal|
IMU, motor and motion control
Jianyi showed us his motors, and told about the general setup / measurement he's going to make. Next, he showed us the detailed block diagram.
|Jim Lynch||Smart faucet / Smart lighting||SmarterLife Challenge - JLynch Projects, cont.||Good discussion about capsense!|
|Mala Mitra||Oven control based on analog PID||Post 3: Smarter Life Challenge: Oven Control with PSOC 4||General thoughts on the development|
|Peter Shabino||Plant monitor (water, light)|
Analog sensing, plant water control
Peter will be using 555 timers to generate a PWM signal showing water level for each plant. The PSOC will monitor all 555's
|Paul Sisneros||Smart Coffee Maker|
|Automation, process control|
|Mani Thundiyil||Intelligent and autonomous wheelchair||About my PSOC4 Project|
Automation, remote control, motor control
Mani showed the block diagram of his automated wheelchair
|Yuri Thkhonov||Smart Diagnosic System|
This week Yuri started ordering all parts, he'll be using the Arduino Esplora to control his PSOC based tricopter. In his last post we're shown some nice pictures of his test setup, and PSOC code!
|Steve Turner||UnCoStat, Smart Thermostat|
User interface, connectivity,
Steve made a nice project box for his proto-kit
Good luck everyone! You've got 67 days left until the end of the challenge: 17th of January
