Mimicking and modeling natural processes that sustain life on earth is critical for humanity to colonize new frontiers. The biggest challenge is that natures processes take like forever while humans live for a limited short time – so people take shortcuts leading to most sustainability issues facing the earth today. Smart aquaponic systems can autonomously mimic the earths water cycle and model nitrogen cycles, oxygen cycles etc. to grow healthy organic produce for feeding new and existing colonies This smart aquaponics project involves using modern fabrication technologies to build an aquaponic garden, establishing biological life balances in the garden, assemble the electronics kit and sensors, software programming and finally remote database configuration for monitoring and visualization. We will hack a wr703n router into an Openwrt Linux microcomputer, build a standalone arduino compatible board and connect the two for a powerful IoT smart controller application
Rolly is a self balancing robot that can bounce off the wall. All my friends have been making robots that run around the floor and I felt left out so this is my installment. What I Liked Their robots use an elegant solution of varying wheel speed independently to get a tight turning radius and
The OLED display is a small .96" display controlled by an arduino nano board. The display receives text and commands from a HC-05 serial bluetooth module connected to the arduino. There is also a small speaker and RGB LED connected to the board. The OLED display, RGB LED, and speaker are all controllable over bluetooth. The device is powered by a adafruit powerboost module connected to a small 0.7Wh lipo battery. The optics are a small mirrored right angle prism and a magnifying lense. The frame and casing is all 3D printed with ABS using a solidoodle 2 pro printer. The Arduino communicates with the oled display using i2c (inter-integrated circuit). The RGB LED and the speaker use the arduino's digital output pins. The display is controlled over bluetooth using a application running on an Android phone or Linux terminal. The glasses are very portable and foldable.
Built on the basis of Arduino UNO, GPS, SD card, TFT, GPS map navigation system is to obtain the real-time position information via GPS, to send it to UNO for calculation, according to the calculating results, and teamed up with the map file stored in SD card, thus presenting the position on TFT.
