Meet the Raspberry Pi B+ - in a nutshell, it is basically pure awesome. It has more GPIO, double the USB ports of a standard model B, a better layout of connectors on the board, what more could you possibly want?   Today we'll be setting up the B+ in general, and installing Node.JS on it. We will also be adding a Websocket library via npm, node's package manager.   We will be using Win32 Disk Imager to flash our MicroSD card. We'll also be using the latest Raspbian, which was r ...
sorry I have not updated this lately at the time I left for Christmas I had not received my main parts list so I have not been able to work on this project as of yet.  I will post an update on if I had received the parts when I get back in town the firs of the year. ...

RTC: The Beginning

Posted by quisss Dec 26, 2014
Sorry It has been a while since my last post, I have been a little busy with college finals, but now, I have time. So, what have I accomplished since my last check in? Let me tell you.   I have put together the basic design of my solution. In this solution, every athlete wears two sets of sensors and a microcontroller. There are the chest sensors and the head sensors. The chest sensors contain a heartbeat monitor and a couple of accelerometers. The head sensors are just a few accelerometer ...

Welcome to in my second blog post! Now I'm going to write a short summary of the structure of the Smart Clothes Project (SCP). There is a word that will be the keyword of my project in the coming weeks (months) : H I T   What does it mean? This is the abbreviation of the main properties of SCP such as Health parameters: the ECG, pulse, body temperature and the impact of the head during the downfall will be measured and logged. The factor of dehydration will be an optional feature if my ...

Hi all,   I am extremely sorry I failed to produce the past two weeks worth of blogging. As a matter of fact, I am still awaiting many of the project critical parts, and I am, in fact, currently unwell.   The combination of both of these things have made it extremely difficult for me to make any progress, but I hope to get the soldering iron heated back up soon.   Thanks for your support and help,   Josh ...
Some of my ordered parts started to arrive, which made me happy and enthusiastic to start doing some work.  My first experiment tried to make a radio link connection between a QAM-TX1 transmitter and a QAM-RX2 receiver.  QAM-TX1 is a complete transmitter hybrid module that operates at 433MHz and it is specified to handle TTL/CMOS data up to 3kHz.  The other module, QAM-RX2 is a complete RF receiver operating also at 433MHz and which provides TTL/CMOS output.   Here is th ...

(Complete list of all blog entries in this series) As already mentioned in my last blog, I was away for a weekend (familiy birthday) and the week after for a business trip. So there was not so much time working on the project. Also, the kits have not arrived yet so I was not able to have a look at all the provided stuff. But fortunately some of the other gear arrived, so could have a look at it. PSoC4 BLE First item I got was the PSoC4 BLE Pioneer kit. My thanks goes to Cypress for providing m ...
Another short update: I am still waiting for the materials, so I haven’t been able to do much progress this week.  I continued to read through datasheets and application notes for the Analog Devices modules.  I started also to look into data communication protocols for linking sensors with processing unit and send data to a tablet or smartphone.  So this was mainly reading and thinking without specific outcomes, so there is not much I can talk about it.   I look forwar ...

I bought a Beaglebone black to setup as my sample phone app, with the intention of putting android on it.  I wanted something that could be moved with the project so that I could send it with someone for testing.  I did not however figure on having hardware that is not recognized by android.  This should have been my first thought however this is an example of not thinking of every detail and concentrating on the most important part of a project and not every part of a project. ...
This is supplemental to the main Safe Field Hockey posts. This can be skipped More stuff arrived today!   To those wondering why a 3.5mm jack is involved, the ECG Leads have a 3.5 mm 3 pole connector already on them. As they say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" ...
This is my first roadtest, I am too excited and looking forward to give my best. It wouldn't be possible without element 14, Analog Devices, Tektronix, Electrolube and Leeds Becket University, so I would like to give heartly thanks to them....   Now, Directly jumping towards the idea. There are several modules in my proposed prototype, I will be discussing each one by one. Firstly we will look at Helmet design.... The head is a very sensitive part of the body, so it needs some special att ...
Here is a short update on my project: I haven’t received the materials yet, so I spent most of the time reading the datasheets of the Analog Devices accelerometer sensors and the other modules that I will be working with.  Besides this I worked on my parts order list trying to estimate what I need.  I spent many hours on Newark/Element14 Store searching for various components that I could use for communication between modules and host.  Finally I came up with a list and I su ...
First of all, I owe a big "thank you" to Element14 and all the sponsors for selecting me as one of the participants in this challenge!

I think this is the best way I can return for everything I learned here.   Project description   Regarding the proposed system, I plan to make it modular and easy to conf ...
(Complete list of all blog entries in this series) This week has been quiet so far. On Friday my PSoC4BLE board arrived (a BLE Pioneer Kit), but I had no time to play with it yet. Also I'm waiting for the kit to arrive so I can start looking at the accelerometers. But here is at least an image of the BLE Pioneer board: (The small breakout on top of the base board is the one I will use. The dark board on the top right is a PRoC BLE board, the one on the left is the PC dongle used for communic ...
The Safe Field Hockey project is a compact and modular design that can be modified to fit all sizes of human (or other animal, if that's the kind of thing you do ), by simply removing and adding pieces. An example of this is the chest strap that holds the pack, which is located on the left of the body, above the hip.   I'll split the explanations of the system into two parts, the base and the uniform.   Base The overall composition of the Base unit depends on the school's or sport c ...

Introduction

Posted by quisss Dec 3, 2014
Now that I'm a part of the Sudden Impact Wearables Design Challenge(I think I'll be abbreviating that as SIWDC from now on), I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself and give a little background on my proposal. I am Austin Seven Horning, and I hail from the California Bay Area, but I am currently attending Purdue University in Indiana. I have been playing sports and have had friends get injured, which is what inspired me to take part in this challenge.   My idea is to build a ...
This is supplemental to the main Safe Field Hockey posts. This can be skipped   Living in the UK is awesome. Why, you may ask?   Simple! Because our parts come very quickly, which is awesome for a time restrained project such as Sudden Impact.   In the mystical white parcel today: Breadboard - Will be used for prototyping circuit work that will be required Right Angle Headers - Will be soldered onto a breakout board... That belongs to what? Find out soon! Micro SD Card - ...

I have spent most of today working on my parts order to get things I do not have. Just a tip for those that have not done the email for your extra parts, you can do the order then download it as a csv file.   I have also decided the only way I can simulate the full team is build 1 unit and use a Beaglebone Black to simulate the rest of the team as to testing bandwidth.  I am excited to work on this project, it will be an exciting month for me.  I wish everyone else luck and c ...
Intro: As this one is my first blog regarding the design challenge, I would like to present my project idea and my motivation in brief at first. I just love to play. Had a great time in my high school and university, playing football (soccer) and basketball. Sweet memories of these, comes along with sweet sweet sweet injuries as well [khikz]. I had a fracture in my left arm while playing basketball, had twisted right ankle for several times and now I have weak right toe due to ligament in ...

(Complete list of all blog entries in this series) Wohoo! When November was coming up, I was looking forward to a nice, peaceful and relaxing winter time. Participating in two contests in a row can be really stressful, and coordinating with all the other activities (spending time with the family, even more with  my son and the caring about house and garden) got difficult at times. But then when this challenge came along, I could not resist. I fought until the last day and finally submitted ...
