Week 6 – Serial

Skeletal p5 sketch

Download the P5 Serial Control

CoolTerm – handy terminal application to see your serial data

For next week- think of an idea for your mid term project (one week projects, you can do anything you want) and be prepared to discuss the idea in class next week , make a blog entry with the idea.

Week 7 – More Serial

Arduino -> P5

P5 and Arduino sketches for sending 1 byte binary from Arduino to P5

P5 and Arduino sketches for sending 1 value in ascii from Arduino to P5

P5 -> Arduino

P5 and Arduino sketches for sending 1 byte binary from P5 to Arduino

 1 byte binary from P5 to Arduino with video capture

P5 and Arduino sketches for sending 1 value in ascii from P5 to Arduino

Multiple values

P5 and Arduino sketches for sending multiple values in ascii from  Arduino to P5

P5 and Arduino sketches for sending multiple values in ascii from P5 to Arduino

 

 

Week 9 BOMs, system diagrams and time tables from previous semesters:

Tentative project schedule :

Concept – week 1 (Week 9 of semester)

To do:Narrow your ideas, make playtesting pototype, make BOM, Schedule, space and interaction diagrams

Interaction Design / play test – week 2 (Week 10 of semester)

To do: Reevaluate idea and interaction after playtesting, adjust BOM and diagrams accordingly, order stuff, learn required skills (special sensors and such)

 Implementation -weeks 3-4 ( Weeks 11-12 of semester)

To do: Build functional prototype (maybe not 100% fabricated exterior)

Usability testing week 5 (Week 13)

To do: Reevaluate usability after usability test, make changes, finish prototype including fabrication

Final presentation week 6 (Week 14)

To do: Celebrate! (and document)

Week 11 – Loads

AC Loads:

Any AC load can be controlled with Arduino using a relay, including motors, fans, lights, computers,

power switch tail https://www.adafruit.com/products/268 safest and most convenient

Relay https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10924 you need to wire your high voltage through it so be super carefull

AC motors

Attributes: Cheap, strong, medium speed, hard to control speed, hard to reverse.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#ac-motors/=5yytj1gdt8igtyq137

Geared AC motors

Attributes: cheap, slow, very strong, hard to control speed, hard to reverse.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#ac-motors/=zr6bef (scroll down)

DC Motors

Attributes: Cheap , strong, very fast , you can control speed but not angle, reversible

https://www.adafruit.com/products/711

Geared DC motors

Attributes:  Very strong, slow , you can control speed but not angle, reversible https://www.servocity.com/html/micro_gearmotorblocks.html

DC motors with encoder

Attributes: Like DC motors but give you to feedback via optical encoder

https://www.servocity.com/html/3-12v_planetary_gear_motors_wi.html

Stepper motor

Attributes: medium speed, control speed, position, reversible

https://www.adafruit.com/products/324

Geared stepper motor

Attributes: slow, strong, control speed, position, reversible

https://www.adafruit.com/products/918

Servo

Attributes: slow, strong, control speed, position, reversible, 180 degrees , super easy to control

https://www.adafruit.com/products/155

More servos – https://www.servocity.com/html/servos___accessories.html

Continuous rotation 360 degree servo

Attributes: slow, strong, control speed, reversible, super easy to control

https://www.adafruit.com/products/154

Linear actuators

Attributes: Linear, limited stroke, expensive, control like DC motor, some have potentiometer feedback
https://www.servocity.com/html/12v_linear_actuators.html

Solenoids

Attributes: Super fast, super short stroke, momentary
