Electrical and Computer Engineering Status on Sensors

Sensor Status update Comments as of 2/14/2011
Sonar All working 100%; All code is written and gives good values All work and appear to be accurate. Measurements still need to be completed for range.
Servos All working; Can be moved to any position on demand; Relationship was found by P11215
IR ground sensors Not done, but simple to code. There are three working IR sensors (1 has a pin that's broken pin that is reparable); Order more IR sensors; Dr. Sahin mentioned getting a moving average loop when P11215 talked to him so that it can better avoid falling off of cliffs
Compass Was working from previous teams. Still works.
Bump Sensors Not yet functional. Electrical circuit is not yet completed; Code will be simple to implement once the circuit is done. Electrical circuit is all set; Needs a place to connect to MSP430s; Justin needs to figure out which pin will be used, and let John know.
Battery Worked previously; needs to be tested to make sure it works. Complete and coded
Moisture Sensor Needs to be tested and possibly have code written The design has been proven and tested. Circuit is on the board. MSP430 table is ready. The circuit design and MSP430 is here. Complete and coded.
Temperature Sensor Needs to be tested and possibly have code written. Lower priority than other sensors. Complete and coded
Light Sensor Sensor not functional. Needs more research and testing. Can possibly use solar panels instead of photo resistor. Complete and coded
Alarm Easy to code. The design has been proven and tested. Circuit is on the board.
Encoders Not yet functional. Will be easy to implement Going to use and code encoders.
