    Your Project Can Involve Designing Your Own Sensor, a Sensor in a Control System, and Doing Something Cool with Sensor Data!

     

    The theme this month is Sensors and it comes from a suggestion from dougw .  The idea is to design an electronic sensor or use a electronic sensor in a control system, or do something interesting with sensor data.  Your project can explore any type of electronic sensor whether its analog or digital.  Or your can focus on a specific type of sensor such as a temperature sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, IR sensor (Infrared Sensor), pressure sensor, light sensor, ultrasonic sensor, humidity sensor, image sensors, water quality sensor, chemical sensor, or any type of device that's used to measure physical input from the environment and convert it to data that a human or a machine can read.  If you've ever wanted to build your own sensor, this challenge is a good opportunity to do so.  You can also use a sensor as part of a much larger control system, or you can simply experiment or do something interesting with sensor data.

     

    This is a broad topic.  Sensors are literally everywhere and a part of every application that you can think of.  Here are some examples of Sensor projects to help give you ideas:

    What are Monthly Themes?

    • Every month (around the 14th of each month) a new theme will be posted on Project14.
    • Submit your ideas (proposals) for your projects to get feedback from the rest of the community.
    • Submit a project entry in the Theme space once you start working on it.

     

    What are Monthly Theme Polls?

    • Every month (around the 14th of each month) there is a project theme poll.
    • Vote on which project competition you want to see for the following upcoming theme.
      • The themes voted on during the previous poll decided the upcoming theme.
      • If you submit an idea for a theme that is not used then it can still be used in a future poll.
    • Themes comments and ideas from the comments section of the project theme poll.

    Step 1: Log in or register on element14, it's easy and free.

    Step 2: Post in the comments section below to begin a discussion on your idea. Videos, pictures and text are all welcomed forms of submission.

    Step 3: Submit a blog post of your progress on your project by the end of the month.  You are free to submit as many blog entries as you like until the beginning of the next theme.

     

    Be sure to include video proof of your project!
