RF Design 2010

  • Dr. Singh with his Wireless Vineyard Monitor.

    The Vineyard Monitor is shown below. It consists of a weatherproof box that houses the electronics mounted on a PVC support pipe. The pipe is intended to be driven into the ground. The soil temperature is measured by a sensor located at the bottom of the pipe.

  • The WatchDuck Pool alarm system.

    The WatchDuck is an accelerometer-based low cost wireless pool alarm. While the summer is coming, everybody knows how unsafe personal pools are for children: accidents happen so quickly.

  • RFiDJ project.

    While I enjoy a good diversity of media, I tend to gravitate towards a few albums, radio stations, and podcasts. For this project I will attempt to simplify and enhance how I interface to these common media types as my submission to the 2010 RF Design Contest by Parallax and Linx Technologies.

    The user's control interface consists of a development board with one joystick and six buttons to control the remote system. The joystick allows the camcorder system to be controlled with 2 axes: pan (Left/Right) and tilt (Up/Down).
