Member Projects

We are adding new projects all the time as they get funded.

They are listed here, along with a brief description and a link to the proposals.

Audio Frequency Spectum Visualizer

Abstract:

My proposal is for an audio frequency spectrum visualizer. It will take a signal from an IPod or Mp3 player. That signal will then be split into multiple ones based on the frequencies. The range of frequencies that we can hear is about 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Each division will only accept a certain range of frequencies, thereby covering the entire audio spectrum. It will split the audio into two channels, and analyze seven bands of audio on each channel, totaling 14 bands total. The range of frequencies being played in the music will be expressed as a voltage. The strength of each band will be shown as a column of leds lighting up.

CNC Project

Abstract:

The purpose of the Self-Guided CNC project is to construct a functional CNC type machine capable of tracking lines on and object to guide the armature in cutting the piece correctly. The device would be capable of functioning independent of off-board computers for both operation and determining cutting paths. The goal is not high-precision cuts, but an easy to use interface for basic cuts.

Infinity Mirror

Abstract:

The goal of this project is to create an object called an infinity mirror. The mirror will be made of LEDs surrounding two mirrors that face toward each other. One mirror is a one way mirror so that it can be seen from the outside, allowing the light reflect inside the space in between 2 mirrors. A further goal is to make the infinity mirror interactive by using sensors and motors. The project aims to begin simply but progressively add complexity as more interactive features are added to it.

Wheatley Cam

Abstract:

Our project would provide a way to open up the robotics lab to new members, and also interact with sponsors. We are proposing a web camera system that will move around a corner of the lab on a rail and also provide camera pan and tilt. The camera would stream to the website and would be controlled by users on the website. We are planning on using a powerful processor that will be very modular and open to later upgrades and modiļ¬cations. Examples of future projects include enabling conversations with our device using Vocal Recognition, Facial Recognition, and creating a Wheatley (a character from the videogame Portal 2 who moves along a rail) skin using a 3D Printer.
