I'd like to say this project is finished, however, I cannot.  The whole month of March I was working on field experiments for work, and I just got back home Saturday. To add to the tragedy, my older dog passed away yesterday, and this project was targeted for her. RIP Penny. Congratulations to the other challengers that finished their projects through all that is happening in the world right now. Be Safe, Scott ...
Introduction: Now a day mostly mass produced vegetables and fruits are GMOs, contaminated with dangerous chemical pesticides and traces of chemical fertilizers. And mostly products labeled as organic, are not 100% organic. So the best and most cost effective option to obtain organic vegetables is to produce them at your home. So now question arises how can you grow vegetables at home without spending too much? Another problem is you can't have a same environmental conditions around the year and ...
Neonatal Mortality Rate (NMR) quantifies the number of new-born deaths (i.e in the first month of life) per thousand live births and is responsible for more than 46% of all child deaths before the age of five (2.5 Million in 2018). Which means  7000 deaths every day.    reference: https://data.unicef.org/topic/child-survival

think on badminton #1

Posted by weiwei2 Mar 20, 2020
Background Badminton is a popular sport in my country and we have produced various champions like Lee Chong Wei (in fact his family has a house at the same housing estate i stay in).  Few people know that badminton shuttle cock is the world fastest racket sport Worlds Fastest - Oceania Badminton Confederation - SportsTG , where 332km/s has been recorded. Question is, how do we produce such high speed, what is the speed of swing or acceleration needed? I am far from being a good badminton pl ...
I'm really excited to show the completed project to my fellow readers. For the wrap-up post I made a GUI with Python and Tkinter to collect and display all the beacons data. In the video, two beacons are connected providing Temperature, Humidity and Battery Level feedback regularly.     The Python program that reads all the sensor's data uses the functionality which I developed and explained in a previous blog post.   To capture the events in the video, I modified the RSL10 fi ...

Hardware setup, Final product, and Testing  In the previous blogs Smart Module for Healthcare and Asset Monitoring - Blog #3 and Smart Module for Healthcare and Asset Monitoring - Blog #4, we saw how to set up the main software for the Healthcare wearable and Asset monitoring modules.   The module which we have developed is scalable and can accommodate any use-case scenario. Here I am showing two simple use-cases which are:   Smart monitoring and reporting of healthcare activiti ...
Software setup - Part 2  In the previous blog Smart Module for Healthcare and Asset Monitoring - Blog #3, we have completed our program, we need to flash the same on to the device.   Once the project is finished, it needs to be compiled. Compiling readies the entire project’s source code for deployment. From any tab, click the button in the project options menu on the top-right of the screen. You’ll see a loading message on the screen indicating compiling has started, and ...
Software setup - Part 1  Now it's the time for the software hack!! It's not technically hacking, but rather an approach to make this kit behave as intended by forcefully putting instructions into its mind.     Yes!! We are going to control its mind.   But to control, I need to know how the mind of the RSL10-SENSE module works.   Basically, this is what is inside the module:     It looks a little scary at first. But it's not that scary too.     Bas ...
Hi Folks !!   It's Cris here with a cool project as part of the Think ON Design Challenge with ON Semiconductor. When I came across this awesome contest Think ON Design Challenge, I was so excited to participate. So without a second thought, I accumulated some rough ideas and put together with an aim to build something in a unique and different way. The idea was as follows:   Aim - To design and develop two smart modules (named as 'Smart Band'  and 'Asset Monitor' for illustration ...
With the technical side of the project progressing well, I started 3-D printing some enclosures for the RSL10 Beacons -honestly I always find an excuse to add 3D printed parts to my projects. At this point I got creative and came up with various types of enclosures. 3D Print settings Below the settings used in Cura: Printer: Creality CR-10S Material: PLA White Infill: 20%, Gyroid Adhesion: Skirt Supports: No Layer height: 0.2mm   Assembly There is not a lot to say here but let's men ...
In my previous entry, I demonstrated how the Debug probe revealed the Request and Response data flowing to and from the RSL10-Sense BTLE device and a python script that I wrote to visualize the services and characteristics available. In this entry, I'm going to show you how to request sensors data with Python and how I effectively read the Beacon response. Custom Service Request Token Node Handler Custom Service Response Token Data Type Sensor Value Collecting ...
After a brief introduction about this project, it is time to know more in detail about our RSL10 device. BTLE devices can reveal quite useful information which I planned to understand first in order to progress with the project. Since I'm planning to use a Raspberry Pi 4 to act as a hub for all the beacons, I wrote a Python program that allowed me to do just that; gather all the information available, in fact, such program turned out to be very useful as I was able to use it to debug my progress ...
Regularly, most of the electricity at home is consumed by heating and cooling with the caveat that not all the rooms have the same temperature. There are some key factors that may contribute to these temperature differences like how many sources of heat are present in the room, the level of insulation and the location of the room. For example, considering that the hot air tends to rise if there is a basement available, it tends to be cooler than let's say the bedrooms -if these are located on th ...
Being an ultra low power device OLED display is perfect combo for RSL10 to display necessary information. C version of well know U8G2 library is used to interface this 0.96" OLED display with On-Semi RSL10-Sense-Gevk board.   // U8G2 display structure static u8g2_t u8g2; // u8x8_byte_rsl10_hw_i2c and u8x8_gpio_and_delay are hardware related functions. u8g2_Setup_ssd1306_i2c_128x64_noname_1(&u8g2, U8G2_R0, u8x8_byte_rsl10_hw_i2c, u8x8_gpio_and_delay); u8g2_InitDisplay(&u8g2); u8g2_ ...
ADS1115 C library and main.c is attached below OnSemi RSL-10 module has 4 ADC inputs but on RSL10-Sense-GEVK only one ADC input is available. Due to the availability of only 1 ADC pin user has only 2 options either use this single analog input with any analog mux (i.e. CD4051BE) or use an external ADC to measure multiple analog inputs. And here ADS1115 16-bit ADC is used to measure up to 4 single ended or 2 differential analog signals. Details: In order to use I2C interface of RSL10 module we ...
Introduction...in briefOur current project focuses on city-wide waste water management and autonomous man-hole monitoring system, that helps in leveraging the cost of traditional monitoring system through IoT and sensor amalgamation technique, but it still needs to fill the voids left in the current system. Manholes are the entry points for maintenance of the sewer lines, hence by monitoring the status of the sewer lines from the manholes will help in doing preventive maintenance and can prevent ...

SeB - Smart eBike

Posted by vassily98 Mar 18, 2020
One thing that eBikes really lack is the ability to act as connected devices (IoT) and a decent battery management system (BMS). I mean, we have seen hundreds of projects attempting to solve the first part (temperature and environment sensing), and this project does not miss that point. The second challenge is to have a bike that really takes care of the battery. LiIon batteries have a relatively short lifespan, which in most cases is further shortened by incorrect use. Long disposal times affe ...

Songbird final test

Posted by steven.hintz Mar 16, 2020
This is my final post for this prodject. the original idea was for one machine to make a very loud chirping noise under the water, that a second machine would then pick up and indicate in some way that something is wrong under the water, however when I went to go and build these machines I ended up only making one that was functional. The machine letting out the chirp worked perfectly, it is the red triangle in the video, and you can see other videos of how it works in my other blogs, but the se ...
