Sort of completed

Posted in Hardware, General, Software at 3:03 pm by Joël

Wednesday was judgment day for the people at the Hanze University as that day signaled the ending of their 8 week project. Both Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering worked hard to complete a working Zeppy before the 13:00 deadline. And succeeded, Zeppy flied beautifully!

There are some parts that still need a finishing touch, like the printed circuit board(PCB) and helium balloon. But for the demo we replaced the PCB with a experiment board (breadboard) which we were able to lift with a slightly over-sized balloon. Below are some pictures of this historical day!

See the Zeppy Set on Flickr for more pictures!

In other news our, slightly outdated, article for the Dutch magazine for Artificial Intellgence (de Connectie) got published! Head over to their site to see how you can get a copy!

Also we’ve made great progress on the client-side. We’re now able to remote control Zeppy with a Joystick and have made a GUI to read and set the status of Zeppy. Below is a screenshot of this system we call Uplink!

    It made manufacturing safe, easy, productive and rewarding in
    general. They also sustain enough space between the elements to allow warm dissipation.

    It’s best regarding automated companies make use of Printed circuit boards such as
    IPC-6012 Class three to make certain reduced sign decline in addition to understanding inside frequency when shifting
    signals throughout these units.
