Autonomous Tank

„Fully autonomous vehicles will soon be at the front lines, both on the battle field and search-and-rescue missions. These vehicles are smaller, faster, and more manuverable than their human driven counterparts. Most importantly, autonamous vehicles will remove humans from dangerous areas and minimise casualties. The purpose of this project was to design and build a scaled proof of concept for an antonomous battlefield tank.“

Xtenscape – free X10 home automation software

„X10 home automation has been around for some time now. Its a simple idea whereby control signals are ‘piggy-backed’ on top of the electrical current running through your house, these signals can tell a specific receiver to switch on or off.“

CATaLOG | An RFID Cat Tracker

„The CATaLOG project aims to track our two cats Bobbin and Tuffin as they go in and out of the house so we can see which cat spends more time outside, what their favourite time to go out is, and also get sent SMS messages if a cat goes missing for a certain amount of time.

The system is designed around the Arduino Microcontroller linked to a low cost RS232 RFID reader and uses the Arduino Ethernet Shield and a Linksys WAP11 router acting as a wireless network bridge to send the data over the internet.“

Capslocker the NXT Generation

„This project is mainly about my new build process, which I used to create a single sided PCB for a rebuild of the Capslocker project from last year. Instead of using a laser printer to create an iron-on resist pattern, I’ll cover a whole PCB in resist and then use a laser cutter to etch off the resist.“
