SFH: Resources

Posted by hawkeyethehacker Jan 31, 2015
In this document, there are links to resources used in the Safe Field Hockey entry. This ranges from datasheets to Github Repositories. Take a look - there is some interesting stuff.   Project Code Repositories All of the code for the SFH Client and Server are located in a single GitHub organisation. Click here to access it.   Code Documentation The Client and Server have some documentation that may be of interest to anyone wanting to build the code themselves. Client Wiki Serve ...
Yes, it says Week 5, no, we did not time travel - I am just making up for some missed updates. So, today I got bored, and now having the ECG evaluation board I decided to take measurements and make a little enclosure for it.   Modelled in Autodesk 123D Design, Rendered in Autodesk Showcase 2014   I am planning to expand this to enclose the Electric Imp breakout board and the charging circuit. In the meantime, I still wonder how Farnell is planning to source the components from Spark ...
So, a massive box arrived today and it was full of lots of juicy development boards. Jam packed. Was it worth the wait and stress of customs? - HECK YES. Today we'll be covering the Oscilloscope, which is a Tektronix TBS1202B-EDU. Upon first glance, the box is much bigger than you would initially think. Lets venture into the contents. These are the standard Tektronix Passive Probes. they are fairly solid and feel like they'll stand up to a lot of use. For my first Oscilloscope, and my f ...
So today finally the big package from Farnell arrived. So here is the big unboxing: Everything neatly packed together - as usual the packaging was excellent (and the box is huge!). The encapsulation resin, together with the safety data sheet. The second resin package is still missing, I hope it will follow soon. (Btw: note the manufacturing and expiration dates...) Next we have a nice stack of boxes from Analog Devices: Time to open them up all (from top to bottom): The temperature ...
Issue is resolved   Today I received an email from UPS.   It was about Customs.   That wonderful thing that everyone hates.   To put it bluntly, the kit for Sudden Impact is stuck at a UK airport and I am being questioned for information that I don't have. Farnell is trying to sort this out on my behalf, but I am afraid that if everything does not work out as it should this'll be my last update. Yes, I am probably worrying too much about this, and everything will probabl ...
(Complete list of all blog entries in this series) Since none of the kits have arrived yet, I reckon I should have done like dougw and order a ADXL375 kit with my Farnell order (there are 20 of them on stock right now). I mostly ordered a large amount of components that should be useful for future projects. In addition I got another PSoC4 BLE kit because I wanted to modify its BLE module (more on that later) and some tools. This order shipped (to my home) within 24 hours, which is what is to be ...
(Complete list of all blog entries in this series) OK, the bad news first: no devkits from Analog have arrived yet (though Christian told me Farnell is working on them). So it looks like I won't keep my timeline for the first prototype (its less than two weeks away). But at least I made progress on the software part of my project - namely getting first results regarding the Bluetooth connection I need. Bluetooth 4.0 vs. Bluetooth Low Energy Sometimes these two terms are used as they would mean ...
This is a short update: I am still waiting for the materials, so I looked into what I can do with what I have so far.  After playing with the transmitter and receiver as I described in my previous update I decided to look into the wireless communication protocol and the user interface software application.  Being familiar with Python I put together a python script that would read the data from an Arduino Uno board and display it on a panel.  I then started to make it a little more ...
Previous posts: EasyConfigure - Modular/Configurable System Intro EasyConfigure - Hardware Components   1. Introduction Time is getting shorter for this challenge so it seems like a good idea to use tools that will help in making the progress faster. Since I'm still waiting for the contestant's kit, the only way I can work right now is by working on the software side and on hardware components that I already have. I decided to make parts of this project with simple BASH scripts. BASH scr ...
Until I receive the kit, I though of working on the software portion of the project... Currently a small application is ready for testing the ECG and other data. The application is running on Raspberry pi which is receiving the data wirelessly using Bluetooth low power module. This application will be used for initial testing and implementation. The application is built on python tkinter. Figure 1: Application running on Raspberry Pi In software application, following data needs to ...

(Complete list of all blog entries in this series) (Update: I finally changed the formulas to use the real time for the formula instead of 'ticks' because thats how its supposed to work. If you looked at the original version and used it, please verify your math. Thanks.) While still waiting for all the kits to arrive(did anyone get their stuff already?), I started to look into the software side of things. Over the holidays there was not so much progress, since I spend the time with the family ...
<< Previous Table of Contents Next Post >>   In my Previous Post , I have discussed SD card interfacing with CC3200 LaunchPad. As I am still waiting for basic parts for this design challenge, So I have try to measure body temperature with TMP006 on Board contact less temperature sensor with CC3200 Launchpad.   The Result is varying in range of +- 3 degree C due to vibration in hand. If I fix the hand on TMP006 with 5CM distance results are more accurate with change of ...
