Integrated System Build & Test
Table of Contents
Team Vision for Integrated System Build & Test PhaseThis phase was allocated for the individual parts of our team to come together. Mike and Dean planned to finish and test rev A/B of the electrical board. Mena planned to take his initial designs fo an enclosure and do preliminary tests on them as well as integrate it with the electrical board. Anmol's plan was to finish the mesh system and the GUI and integrate with Jai who was planning on finishing the code designed to interface with our sensors
The team came rather close to its goals. The electrical board required a new revision however and upon completion of that worked virtually as expected The enclosure was 3D printed and tested and will require another revision as well but the sizing is correct and it will fit around the board. The software team made major headway as far as integrating their parts together and can now begin testing
Test Plans Summary
Risk and Problem Tracking
Integration DemoIntegration consisted of combining the Decawave distancing code and the ESP Mesh code. The program was then flashed onto two proto-boards and one PCB Rev C to complete a 3-node system.
The general node protocol is all nodes broadcast the distances that they get from their on-board DWM to the master node. The master node is responsible for consolidating all the distances, calculating positions based on those distances, and sending those coordinates to a GUI. The GUI then displays the nodes in real time.
