Final Project Setup

EEG Error Correction Interface

Introduction Our project was an EEG-controlled brain computer interface that allowed a user to correct errors in machine behavior. The project was modeled as a trial-based “game.” In each trial, a solid colored green block or dotted yellow block was placed on a conveyor belt. One end of the conveyor belt had a solid colored …

tachometer

How to make a contact-less digital tachometer using IR-light reflection technique using PIC18F2550

Tachometer is a device that measures the rotational speed of any shaft or disc. The unit of the measurement is usually revolutions per minute or RPM. The traditional method of measuring RPM of a rotating shaft was based on velocity feedback concept where a dc generator is hooked to the rotating shaft so that the …

The Outlet Nanny

The Outlet Nanny

We designed a power monitor that could communicate with the PIC32 through UART to give both power and current readings for any device(s) (that use NEMA plugs) plugged into our box. These readings are then accessible on a website interface, on a graph. We chose to do this project because of the growing issue of …

DHT11 sensor

Measurement of temperature and relative humidity using DHT11 sensor and PIC microcontroller using PIC16F628A

Measurement and control of temperature and relative humidity finds applications in numerous areas. These days devices are available which have both temperature and humidity sensors with signal conditioning, ADC, calibration and communication interface all built inside them. The use of such smart sensors greatly simplify the design and reduces the overall cost. We discussed in …
