Dissertation Progress – Day 62

Tasks complete: Redesigned and restructured the client application to attempt to start automatically on system boot. Drawn up sequence diagram in MS Visio to reflect changes in client application structure. Implemented Thread functionality that delays operation of application to ensure a connection to Eduroam is established. Wrote the ‘Acknowledgements’ chapter in the Project Report. Finished […]

Meeting Notes

Application Write a for loop. Read each byte 255 times. Just write code that ‘spits out’ whether the device is working. Use .read(address):int method. Create a test method (new). 10 minutes work. accel.read(i); // addresses 0 – 255 Returns a signed integer. Convert it to hex. … Ultimately, is the device correctly connected? Ethics Review […]

Dissertation Progress – Day 58

Tasks complete: Begun finalising the ethical review submission. Will think over it until Thursday. Attempted to connect to the accelerometer using an excellent Github repository. Only snag being it’s using the Wiring API, not Pi4J! Have also defined abstract methods for sub-classes. Refactored code for sprint two. It no longer features a contextual selection mode.

Dissertation Progress – Day 53 – 55

Tasks complete: Attempted to connect x3 sensors together. Have not been successful. Will do so soon. I may have to order a different accelerometer – the model I have at present hasn’t played ball for others’. Designed, identified and created Java classes for the ambient intelligence learning system and incremental synchronous learning system. Emailed Dave […]

Dissertation Progress – Day 52

Tasks complete today: Ordered x2 temperature sensors and x1 RGB light sensor. Both were fried last time. … the accelerometer sensor I presumed was fried works after testing it this morning. Whew!
