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 59

Tasks complete today: Emailed Dave Guest – he has granted me permission to borrow his VGA/HDMI converter for an hour. Amended online Ethical Review. I will get Dan to review this shortly. Changed development approach and introduced Risk Management into the software development equation – I was getting too fixated on getting the accelerometer, light […]

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 57

Tasks complete: Amended the Evaluation Method document. Connected the x2 RPi’s to Eduroam (thank you Dave)! It might be possible to have setup a dynamic DHCP Wi-Fi connection and a static Ethernet connection.

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!

Dissertation Progress – Day 51

Tasks complete today: Printed off tutorials on I2C port expansion; it turns out I don’t need one!!! Successfully managed to get I2C devices connected!!! I will need to order more accelerometers and RGB Light Sensors. I think I might have fried them… Anyway, I managed to find a forum post, that recommended ‘daisy chaining the […]

Dissertation Progress – Day 49

Tasks complete today: Emailed David Guest – to request assistance connecting RPi units to Eduroam or Resnet. Identified and outlined non-functional and functional technical requirements for the project(!). Listed (by importance of priority) Sprints to be undertaken; principally those between 1 – 4. Post-it notes have been produced to breakdown tasks into sub-tasks. Written-up a […]
