Autonomous fire extinguisher

candlefire

by embedded-lab.com:

Trevor Slaton and Dawn Xiang, students from Cornell University, designed this autonomous fire extinguisher that is capable of detecting fires through photo sensors and aiming a water nozzle along two axes to extinguish the fires. Their prototype can detect and extinguish candle fires from about 1 ft. away. Their system uses two servo motors to control the vertical and horizontal position of the water nozzle and a water pump to send out a burst of water from the nozzle. The ATmega1284p microcontroller is used to control the pump as well as the servos.

Handwriting recognizer using neural network

Stephen Wu – Justin Churchill write:

Our project implements a touchpad input system which takes user input and converts it to a printed character. Currently, the device only recognizes the 26 letters of the alphabet, but our training system could be easily generalized to include any figure of completely arbitrary shape, including alphanumerics, punctuation, and other symbols. A stylus is used to draw the figure/character on the touchpad, and the result is shown on an LCD display. Pushbutton controls allow the user to format the text on the display.

We chose this project because touchscreens and touchpads are prevalent today in many new technologies, especially with the recent popularity of smartphones and tablet PCs. We wanted to explore the capabilities of such a system and were further intrigued by our research into different letter-recognition methods. Finally, we have had previous course experience in signal processing, computer vision, and artificial intelligence; we feel that this project was an excellent way to synthesize all of this knowledge.

We built a robust Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) using single-channel electroencephalography (EEG) with an AVR microcontroller, and we were able to play Pong using our brain waves (and monitor/record our sleep). Charles Moyes (cwm55) and Mengxiang Jiang (mj294)

Cornell University ECE 5760 Final Year Projects

FPGA hardware/software projects were produced by students in the last month of ECE5760 at Cornell. Projects were built using the Altera/Terasic DE2 or DE2-115  FPGA educational boards. This year’s projects include:

  • Prime number generator and RSA encrypter/decrypter
  • Conway’s life tone synthesizer
  • Hand video-tracking virtual piano and drums
  • Finger video-tracking virtual string instrument
  • Hand video-tracking video game

New projects from Cornell University

Student’s at Cornell University are designing great projects using microcontrollers for their class ECE 5760. All final projects are published on this page and it’s a great resource for ideas. This year’s fall projects are published on this page. Projects are innovative and really interesting to check it out! Each project has it’s own website with full hardware and software description.
