3×3 LED Array Prototype

Here we have our first prototype for of a 3×3 LED Array that will be used for investigation purposes of the arduino microcontroller and the possiblities of implemetation within the project 54 simulator. This device is the first generation of a new directional navigation device. Expanding on this idea my senior project team and I will create larger LED arrarys able to understand …

Transcription and Some Cross Correlation

In one of my previous posts I demonstrated some software I have been working on at Project54. In the past weeks I have added a few features to this project. Originally, the project could import the associated dialogue and display it in the correct time location. This was cool but the user could not edit …

Google Crisis Map

After the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) developed the Environmental Response Management Application(ERMA). ERMA provides numerous datasets as overlays on Google maps, providing useful information for response organizations. Now with tropical storm Isaac making its way through the Gulf Coast, Google created an application with the …

Optimizing Graphs on The Microsoft Surface

Recently, while working on a project to visualize .wav files on the Microsoft Surface, I ran into an issue regarding the canvas controls size. While developing this software I am testing with a .wav file about 4 minutes long. Visualizing this file creates a canvas with a width of about 20,000 pixels . . . …

Analyzing Time Series Data on the Microsoft Surface

In our last demo we showed the simplicity of scrolling through pre-generated time series data on the Microsoft Surface. We have now implemented real data with the same functionality. The new software, seen below, demonstrates basic data visualization and manipulation of Buoy data collected throughout the Great Bay area. The graphing is created using Microsoft …

Data Over Time

To demonstrate the potential for displaying data over time, I created a sample application on top of the InfoStrat.VE(virtual Earth). This sample program allows the user to scroll through MatLab generated data over a time frame of nine years. This type of visual data display could make analyzing time series information more interesting and fun. …

Accelerometer plotting in MATLAB

The current project I am working on concerns reading data from an accelerometer in order to move a player in an air hockey game being played on the Microsoft Surface. There is a delay in tracking fast movements on the surface which can be an issue when playing a game. The idea is to cut …

Mapping Data On The Microsoft Surface Within InfoStrat.VE

Over the Winter Break here at Project54 I have had the chance to work on developing an application for the Microsoft Surface. This project uses the InfoStrat Virtual Earth software, which provides an excellent template of an interactive 3D world using Bing Maps. My application uses environmental data (in this demo sediment levels in water). …
