Smarter Life

December 15, 2013
Hi! I uploaded a movie of working 230V dimmer example. I am working on the second part of the project lately - voice recognition part based on Raspberry Pi. I had some troubles with recording, processing and recognizing only the part of the sounds that are over some level of noise. That saves a lot of computational power. I believe I got the solution. As soon as I have some example working I will give you a heads-up. ...

Hello all,     Update on the complete challengeHere are some posts to get you started if you jumped into this challenge, and didn't get the full context: Smarter Life Challenge Competitors (thanks Joseph Man!) Review of first design week! Overview - week 2 of PSOC Design Challenge Overview, Week 3 and a bit Overview, week 4 and a bit Overview, week 5 Overview, week 6   "My weekly view"It's getting hot in here! Most participants are getting very, very much ready for prototype testi ...
The Henrietta Project is a smart thermostat system entered in the PSoC4 Pioneer Kit Smarter Life Challenge. An introductory video that describes the system features and costs has been uploaded. There will be a second video to demonstrate the system. Current status is all subsystems are connected, configured, compiled and working with appropriate test software. The system will be cleaned up mechanically and electrically before finalizing the demo software. Current status is: all PCBs are de ...
Hello everyone, Lots of progress this week in terms of hardware and software. Most of the parts that I disused in the earlier post have now been interfaced and working in software.   Here is how DAS looks now with respect to its block diagram: There are two shields on top of the Pioneer kit: 1. Arduino GSM Shield on the Top 2. Logging Shield below it on top of Pioneer Kit.   Here is a shot of the top Shield removed: It also shows the modifications done on the Logging shield ...
If you like my project vote for "A Smarter Tricopter - Yuri Tikhonov"   Good day comrades! This week, the last before the beginning of voting, I still haven't received the parcel from HobbyKing. Nevertheless, Russia is still in game!   This week we begin a new stage: "hardware", but I must save a bit of material on the case, if the parcel with spare parts will not come. Already done: Schematics were developed; PCB layout was made; PCB was made in the old-school style Pioner K ...
I completed a small part of the project, Here, the blue LED indicates the status of control parameter say, temperature. When there is a temperature difference the blue LED blinks. When the temperature sets in the light becomes steady. Earlier I thought of changing the duty cycle according to temperature difference. But our eyes are not sensitive to such small differences. Also, as mentioned in documents the clock pulse duration is not very accurate at low pulse rate. ...
Here is a quick update from the project. A lot needs to be done for the GeoCar to call it completed. Well maybe this is one of those projects that is never completed. A project like this is an always growing project, which is great because there is no limit on what can be achieved. Regardless of how much can be done some tasks needs to be completed. So I attacked a big task to check out and it is the Android app to extract data from the PSoC. For this I just pulled out the sample Bluetooth app I ...
