DATA COLLECTION AND TELEMETRY SYSTEM DESIGN FOR MARINE INSTRUMENTATION: THE SON-O-MERMAID

1  INTRODUCTION Son-O-MERMAID is a concept that evolved from MERMAID [1], a floating instrument that acts as a freely drifting seismometer equipped with a hydrophone that captures acoustic signals caused by distant seismic activity. MERMAID is equipped with sensitive on-board acoustics, a battery life measured in months, and with the latest in seismic event detection and …

DESIGN OF AN UNMANNED GROUND VEHICLE CAPABLE OF AUTONOMOUS NAVIGATION

ABSTRACT This project is a multidisciplinary initiative with an objective to develop a scalable robotic platform of ground and aerial robotic swarms that are capable of tracking an object in an unknown environment. Conventionally, most robotic platforms perform tasks independently and are not designed to perform tasks in coordination with other robotic agents, thereby limiting …

Implementation and Design of Webcam Systems for Traffic Monitoring in Acadia National Park

Abstract Because traffic congestion often has impacts on safety, visitor experience, resources, emergency response times, and park operations, reducing congestion is an important management topic for Acadia National Park. This project explores the use of remote webcams to monitor parking lots and other areas of interest within the park, with the ability to upload images …

RASPBERRY PI FLOPPY DRIVER UNCOVERS FISHY SECRETS

A forum post by New Zealand electronics enthusiast [zl2wrw] about retreiving waypoints from a mysterious floppy disk caught our eye. The navigation system on his friend’s fishing boat had died and was replaced. But the old waypoints were stored on a 3-1/2 inch floppy disk that was unreadable on a normal PC. Not to be deterred, [zl2wrw] …

TIGHTLY PACKED RASPBERRY PI TRICORDER IMPRESSES

We’ll say upfront that we don’t have nearly as much information about this 3D printed Star Trek: The Next Generation tricorder as we’d like. But from the image galleries [Himmelen] has posted we know it’s running on the Raspberry Pi Zero W, has a color LCD in addition to a monochrome OLED, and that it’s absolutely packed with gear. …
