Arduino Serial Port Issue

Hi! While I was experimenting with Arduino and SparkFun’s MPU6050, I came across the usual problem of Serial port being grayed out in Arduino IDE. Earlier I always ignored the problem and restarting the system used to work for majority of the time. This time however, I was determined to find a solution. After experimenting […]

Interfacing Arduino Uno with MPU6050 Breakout board by Sparkfun

Hi! Its time for me to post about my work. So as I mentioned in my abstract, I will be working with low-cost IMUs. Last week, we procured Sparkfun’s MPU6050 IMU. It costs around $40 ( shipping not included). You can view the IMU here. Hardware Connections: The connections are pretty simple as MPU6050 follows […]

Beat Feet at MIT Media Labs Design Innovation Workshop 2013

Hey everyone! As the title suggests, I had attended MIT Media Labs Design Innovation workshop at PESIT Bangalore from Jan 21-Jan 25 2013. As a part of Sensor Environments track, we in a team of four, built something known as Beat Feet. We were guided by Pragun Goyal, Masters student at MIT Media Labs and […]

Poll about my next project.

Hello everyone, It would be great if you could answer this quick poll! Thanks!

Simple Wireless Sensor Network for Temperature Sensing

Hello everyone! This is one small project which I had done with Abhinav Gupta some months back. In this experiment, I graduate from using simple RF communication to Xbee! 😀 Whoa! 🙂 Ok, so here is the basic problem statement. I need to develop a temperature sensing system such that the temperature from the sensor […]

OpenCV for Shape Detection with RF Communication

Hey, This was one of the first projects I ever did in BITS Goa. It’s not documented well, but it was truly a life changing experience for me. I got introduced to many concepts of C, OpenCV, Electronics Micro controllers like Arduino , RF interfacing, etc. This project sure formed a good base of what […]
