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 […]

MSP430F2013 – JTAG Interfacing without using EZ430RF2500

Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I wrote a post. Anyhow, here is a quick post on what I have worked for a few days. I had ordered some free samples from TI. I had ordered an MSP430F2013 chip. The chip exists in different packaging. I wanted to test my circuits before […]

Wireless Intruder Detection System

Hello everyone, This is an informal project done with help of Arun Prasad and Sreejith Sir. The project aims at detecting an intruder in a secured environment. For these we use PIR ( Passive infra-red Sensors ) and Independent Xbees. Independent nodes were used. Custom PCB designs were made to sustain an Xbee module, PIR […]

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 […]
