Open Source Hardware Fall 2018[edit]


This semester I started development and redesign of the Recycle Bot. The Recycle Bot will be controlled via an Android Application that connects via BlueTooth. I have worked with Jennifer Baker on the design of the Application and the redesign of the software that controlled the Recycle Bot. Page one of the application will be being able to turn on and off Bluetooth of the mobile device and connecting to the Bluetooth device. This page is mostly complete and openly available on the OSHE enterprise github.Page two which will hopefully have places to input numbers to run the RecycleBot.

Next semester I plan on continuing the development and redesign in order to fully optimize the Application and the embedded software.

Open Source Hardware Sring 2019[edit]


This semester I continued the development of the Recycle bot android application. A major issue and time consumer was developing a proper Bluetooth module to connect the phone and the Arduino. We solved the problem by adding a delay between each opportunity to connect and disconnect. We also had to compile the entire app onto 1 page, as if a new page was moved too, Bluetooth would need to reconnect, which was inconvenient for the user. I continued to work with Jennifer Baker on this application and Aubrey to finalize the diameter reader code. We have finished the application, but need to continue extensive testing to verify all methods work correctly. This app can be found via the Open Source Enterprise GitHub.

Next semester I will most likely pursue a new project as this project can be considered complete.
