Autonomous Air-Hockey Goalie Using atmega 1284

This project is intended to perform the role of a goal-keeper in the popular arcade game Air Hockey. In this project, the robot shown below senses a puck coming toward it and moves in the direction of the puck's motion so as to stop it. This problem was identified as fairly challenging to solve based on two metrics. Firstly, Air Hockey is fast paced and designing a highly responsive control system seemed ex ...

SousVide immersion cooker using Atmega644

About What is this thing? For our ECE4760 Spring 2012 (Microcontrollers) Final Project at Cornell University we decided to create a sous-vide cooker (a type of immersion cooker) that can maintain a set temperature for extended periods of time. It can auto-calculate the appropriate time for cooking a certain thickness of meat using heat transfer equations. What is sous-vide? Simply put, it's a way of cooking ...

Automated grapefruit segmenter Using Atmega644

Part I. High Level Design 1 Rationale and Problem Overview As regular grapefruit consumers, both of us could appreciate the value in automating the cutting procedure. We saw the problem as suitable for a final project because it is [very] challenging while requiring a combination of software, analog electrical hardware, and physical components. The device has further appeal as something that can even be com ...

3D Paint Using Atmega644

"A 3D canvas on which the artist can draw using trilaterated coordinates from ultrasonic delays." Project Soundbyte For our final project in ECE 4760, we designed and implemented a three-dimensional paint program consisting of hardware, a microcontroller, and a PC running MATLAB. All three modules strongly interacted to allow the artist to wave a pen around in space and see their movements translated in rea ...

Home energy managment Using Atmega644a

Introduction Our project implements a smart algorithm in order to power a house with a photovoltaic, batteries or the power grid.  For this project, we worked closely with a research team whose goal is to power a home with minimal power from the power grid.  In order to form this smart home, we needed to monitor the voltage and current flow from each of the sources (photovoltaic, batteries, and the grid) an ...

Self-Adjusting Window Shade Using Atmega644

Introduction The self adjusting window shade will automatically raise, lower, open, and close your blinds by itself. A computer terminal acts as a remote to broadcast instructions to the window shade via RF. These manual adjustments are stored into the microcontrollers system along with the rooms current ambient light and temperature settings. When these lighting and temperature conditions are found in the ...

Braille reader using Atmel mega32

Introduction BlindAid is a portable tool that reads Braille and signals close objects. It is ideal for those unfortunate people who just turned blind and have not mastered Braille reading and blind cane usage. It can also be used as a learning instrument that helps the user decipher Braille without constantly going to the Braille dictionary.  High Level Design Rationale After browsing through the website on ...
