Module ELE00003H : Design and Construction
The project for 2014-15 is a weather station. In its basic form, the weather station will measure temeprature, humidity, light level, wind speed and wind direction using a combination of hardware and software. It will use hardware to linearise and scale various sensors and software to convert the analogue signals to digital and display them. Further developments will incldue pressure, colour, digital temperature and humidity sensors, statistical analysis, data logging and transfer to a PC. The "Introduction to the Module" lecture notes gives more details.
The project for 2013-14 was a House Alarm System.
