    "DIY Smartphone Controlled Plane, great description with lots of pictures." - Community Member Judge

    "A very cool project!  Great documentation and amazing results shown in the video." - Community Member Judge

    "Top Place: This goes to ravi_butani  for his airplane as I thought the whole design was fun, modern and clever. I used to love model planes - chuck gliders and rubber band models so this really took me back to the 70's/80's and toys. It also seemed to work so well. Personally I would have accidentally crashed it on that maiden flight so another well done to him for the pilot skills." - Community Member Judge

    "I'm particularly impressed that the plane was handmade and that it flew so well." - Community Member Judge

    Solar powered IoT device with Cayenne by luislabmo

     

    "An excellent  solar based, IoT sensor project.  Great energy harvester development, forming a very usable IoT sensor platform.  Great work!" - Community Member Judge

    "Solar Powered IoT with Cayenne, luislabmo.  This one did stand out to me.  The parts and steps were explained the best.  The video clearly showed his results. Source code and schematics were included. He harvested energy and used it to do something useful (soil moisture).  He made his own circuit board, with several options for using with different projects.  It was all very impressive.  For my own use in the future, I wrote down the part numbers, the use of supercaps really interested me." - Community Member Judge

    "The project was well planned and executed with a customised board using SMT. The many phases was completed in a small time frame and video was complete." - Community Member Judge

     

    The Trickle Charger by 14rhb

     

    "This was a novel and interesting approach to energy harvesting.  Plenty of good examples of math, mechanics  and engineering were demonstrated throughout this project." - Community Member Judge

    "14rhb  was the only one who attempted to harvest mechanical energy.  It was not an easy task, but he overcame most of the difficulties. Big points for the clever name, Trickle Charger.  He hand built a diode voltage multiplier, used a supercapacitor.  Most of all his background explanation was very informative, I liked that he quantified how much energy it takes for a "cuppa" tea.  We're used to milliamps and microamps for modern electronics on element14, you can't boil water with that." - Community Member Judge

    "A 3D printed turbine! This is a super cool DIY project." - Community Member Judge

     

     

    Measuring nanoamps by koudelad

     

    "For showing the tools and methods of measuring energy consumption of a typical microprocessor, Very instructive of the problems facing in energy harvesting  projects." - Community Member Judge

    "'No lies' IR thermometer is a production-grade project and now Koudelad has optimized its energy consumption as well. Optimization means you have 'level up' - Community Member Judge

     

    Soil Battery for Forest Fire Detection System by pratyush_cetb

     

    "A very interesting energy harvesting project using soil shows research and inventiveness." - Community Member Judge

     

    "The use of the soil battery for remote energy harvesting impressed me.  It's a great idea for any remote area.  The objective to detect the VOCs for forest fires is a good one.  The choice of electronics to do that were very sensible, another supercapacitor..  The steps required were explained well.  The video was long but didn't contribute much to the project." - Community Member Judge

    "This is an unusual power generation methodology, but most applicable to the forest fire sensors it was built to power. The concept of the design was interesting and had great merit." - Community Member Judge

     

    Eagle EYE - Solar Power Monitoring using Labview and ULP MAX32660 by mahmood.hassan

     

    " Simple but effective usage of resources with a nice interface view." - Community Member Judge

    "This is  a well written description, the decisions he made in putting together the system.  One demerit point, I don't think he powered anything useful with his solar power.  But I liked the detailed steps for the hardware, and the detailed steps for the software, Labview.  He included the source code listing along with attaching the files to help others make use of it." - Community Member Judge

    BBAI Seein' Around Corners, Talkin', IoT Exploitin' Backup Car Cam with Onboard Vision AI by  sjmill01

     

    "He proposed an ambitious project, completed it, and along the way documented important functions in the new BB AI.  Other contestants benefited from his documentation.... I will be referring to his information as I learn the BB AI." - Community Member Judge

    "Nice project with a mix of technologies. However it wasn't clear how much of the reversing activity was using video, or the LIDAR sensor. Still, the technologies used were great to see, and the information could be applied to many other future projects. Sean put in a lot of effort, as well as lots of useful BB-AI documentation." - Community Member Judge

    "Sean Miller has went the extra mile ahead and explored the BB-AI. He has provided so much valuable information that will help a starter have a hassle free start. His project will be definitely useful and has been documented excellently with all the troubles and issues he faced and details of how he overcame them." - Community Member Judge

    "My top pick is the "Seein' around corners" project. I really liked reading to its comprehensive project description, and learned quite a lot. Sean and his son set their goal quite high, and I think they even overachieved. Bonus points for using LEGO in their test setup :)" - Community Member Judge

    "Seeing around corners, excellent post providing detail, pictures and good explanation." - Community Member Judge

    "Great to see a father and son working together. It's always good to inspire the next generation. I'm hoping to do the same when mine are a little older. I also appreciated the fact that a useful guide to getting started with the BB-AI came out of this too." - Community Member Judge

     

    Vector Display GPU Project by neuromodulator

     

    "I learned a lot reading this (Q notation), I expected a simple Lissajous vector display (which he noted was overdone).  Very impressive and unexpected project.  I would have to spend many days to understand all that he presented." - Community Member Judge

    "A really interesting project that was also very well written up. I liked the fact that it merges of an old style of display with a modern FPGA." - Community Member Judge

    "A fantastic project (actually two projects rolled into one). Some source code was provided. Really great to see FPGAs being used for vector displays, and the demonstration video for the second project (which used OpenCV as a kind of preprocessor) was impressive too." - Community Member Judge

    "Vector Display, good technical challenge appreciated by those of us experienced with vector graphics design and development." - Community Member Judge

     

    Light Dependant Resistor Camera LDRCam)  by dubbie:

     

    "His step by step description of his work was excellent, problems encountered, workarounds he decided on.  He started with what he knew (arduino), making his concept work, and then tried to move on to the BB AI.  His explanations and videos show his thought process and results clearly." - Community Member Judge

    "This turned out to be a very unique project. Initially I wasn't sure what the result would be, but Dubbie managed to turn it into an interesting hardware version of an eye, with a ton of wiring to do that! Impressive that he even went to the extent of investigating a neural network for the eye too!" - Community Member Judge

    "LDR Camera, Great post, original idea and execution" - Community Member Judge

     

    Driver State Monitor with OpenCV and BeagleBone AI by vlasov01

     

    "This was a genuinely useful implementation of the BeagleBone's Vision processing. He saw the project through to completion too. I almost put this as the winner. This and Neuromodulator's display are the two stand-out projects this month." - Community Member Judge

    "This project is a life saver I would say. Because most accidents happen in just a blink of an eye of tired drivers." - Community Member Judge

    "Although the project description is not as complete, Sergey delivered a really cool and useful project here. Using face recognition to detect when someone is about to fall asleep or is not concentrated is a cool idea." - Community Member Judge

    "Driver State Monitor, built on someone else's work, but a good use of vision systems." - Community Member Judge

     

     

    Virtual Loop Sensor by skywalker1211

     

    "Pretty impressive work - well documented, and a great concept, to do vehicle sensing by using a line drawn on the video. Great to see OpenCV being used, and the source code will be great for people to follow to understand how to create such video related projects. This was a very complete project." - Community Member Judge

    "Virtual Loop Sensor, good idea to set up an advanced vehicle counting package." - Community Member Judge

     

    Vehicle Speed Camera - Beaglebone AI by gam3t3ch

     

    "This is a brilliant idea making a speed gun out of BB-AI which could be extended to make use of AI feature to note down frequent or pattern of defaulters by noting down the vehicle registration as well." - Community Member Judge

    "There were lots of vehicle projects in this Project14 challenge, but Wesley still managed to keep it interesting, tackling something quite challenging, determining the speed of objects. This could have applications for security purposes too; identifying unusually slow-moving cars, perhaps of the same color or type, multiple times, 'scoping the joint' or neighborhood." - Community Member Judge

     

    Medication Monitor - Part 1 by milosrasic98

     

    "This is another useful life saver project, not taking medications at the right time could be fatal. Waiting for Part 2." - Community Member Judge

    "Awesome idea - very innovative. I think there could be many applications for image recognition built into lighting like this. Milos used OpenCV, and got to the point of detecting the individual compartments of pill boxes, which is very cool. Hopefully the source code can be published too so people can learn the techniques used with OpenCV." - Community Member Judge

     

    Self Driving Car (Automatic Lane Detection) (on a Robot) by vimarsh_

     

    "Another well-done projects with a comprehensive project description. Vimarsh did a great example of all the work that needs to done for self-driving cars, and I again learned quite a lot from his project." - Community Member Judge

    "Automatic Lane Detection, good project well explained." - Community Member Judge

    "A good project. It still needs work to improve it, but considering Vimarsh attempted both robotics and vision, two challenging subjects, he's very brave : ) Really nicely documented too." - Community Member Judge

    Dragon Detector by  Workshopshed

     

    "This hit my sweet spot for not-so-serious projects. But even dragons and knights prove to be very useful to learn about AI" - Community Member Judge

    "Dragon Detector, definitely original though an old recycled project." - Community Member Judge

    "Great project showing the power of OpenCV. Full source code too." - Community Member Judge

     

     

    Smart Security Camera (with Attendance on Google Sheets) by aabhas

     

    "Well-documented project, showing how to use OpenCV for face recognition and automatic logging of the person to a spreadsheet in the cloud. Aabhas went to a lot of effort to document this project, it looks great." - Community Member Judge

    "I can see how much enthusiasm has gone into this, and how one of our younger members has really been inspired to put a lot of effort into E14." - Community Member Judge

    "Smart Security Camera, well done project with lots of uses." - Community Member Judge

     

     

    AI_Lock - DIY with BeagleBone AI in four hours by fyaocn

     

    "Very interesting project, relying on the BB-AI hardware features and TIDL functionality to perform the image recognition. This is new stuff, so it's great to see such projects we can all learn from. There was actually an immense amount of useful information, but needs a video." - Community Member Judge

    "While others seemed overwhelmed by the new BB AI, he got right to it and made an electromechanical solution with no complaints.  He explained advanced BB topics such as PRU and TIDL.  I would have to spend a few days learning to understand it all (and I will, later)" - Community Member Judge
