Bicycle Powered Generator - Senior Design Project (1/2014 – 5/2014)

  • Redesigned a PC fan in order to act as a generator when an outside force causes rotation
  • Transfered energy to a microprocessor (Parallax Basic Stamp and Raspberry Pi), Garmin GPS, and Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Designed and assembled full-wave rectifying circuit and voltage regulating circuit to convert output voltage of generator from AC to 5V DC
  • Created mounting system to attach generator to bicycle wheel in an economic and minimalistic fashion
  • Performed numerous experiments, tests, and simulations using MultiSim and LabView to gain statistical data relating to the performance and capabilities of the bicycle powered generator so future endeavors may be pursued

Self-Sustained Plant Growing System - Personal Project

  • Sealed and controlled environment where plant can be monitored and cared for automatically in a container with CFL bulbs for lighting and dual PC fans for ventilation
  • Programmed Parallax microcontroller along with SHT11 sensor and LCD to display temperature and humidity
  • Plans to implement Raspberry Pi to receive data from Parallax microcontroller and create web-based interface for monitoring and automatic control of system
  • Watering controlled by solenoid connected to water reservoir which will activate when humidity is too low or temperature is too high

Automated Window Blinds - Current Project

  • Microprocessor controlled step motor with mount to open and close blinds based on time and/or lighting conditions
  • 3D printed mount for attaching to blind rod
  • Step motor for rotating mount in specific increments to prevent damaging blinds or mount
  • Photodiode to sense light for automation
  • Plans to add "clap" detection to blinds enabling them to be opened or closed
