Functional Demo Materials

Software: This phase saw the completion of the overall system architecture with input from our customer, as well as the integration of the UI screen with the serial functionality. The E-stop code was also incorporated in to the main code and while a few bugs still exist the main functionality of all the code was finalized.Many high risk items were put to bed during this segment such as writing to the screen while in serial mode and the switching between serial mode and touchscreen mode.

The Serial interface was improved this phase by the addition of special character to help with the automation process shown below.


The system architecture for the serial communication and the touchscreen communication was also developed during this phase and is shown below.

Plans for next phase

The document for the working Gantt Chart: Team Schedule

Software Going forward the plan is to test the software with full functionality with the full hardware set up and iron out the bugs in the Interrupt service routine codes.

Hardware Prove all wavelengths with Rev1 PCB until Rev2 arrives. Then integrate all components and begin testing against engineering requirements.

Systems Integration Connect remaining harnesses. Attach all components to the fixture.

Technical Paper & Poster Work on the technical paper until completion and create poster.

Physical Subsystem Finish machining. Decide whether or not to electrically ground the box. Paint interior of the box black. Mount all sub-components and test the subsystems within the box.
