Embedded Systems - Embodied Agents Course

Jun 19, 2014

Overview of the exercises completed as part of the Embedded Systems - Embodied Agents course. The course revolves around gaining practical experience with robot and embedded systems development.

Elderflower Aquavit

Jun 15, 2016

Making lovely aquavit using fresh sessional ingredients and a mild neutral spirit.

ATX Variable power supply

Jun 1, 2016

A way to utilize a old ATX power supply to make a small and accessible bench supply providing a 3v3, 5v, 12v and a dynamic ~0 - 24v output.

My master thesis

May 18, 2015

After about 5 years of studying IT product development at Aarhus University I wanted to the results of my work by sharing my masters thesis. The thesis provides an outline of the SCI design space, design considerations for designing toolkits within SCI, with particular focus on a target group consisting of design researchers that have limited-to-no experience with or knowledge of electronics and programming, and lastly present directions for future work.

Session 6 – Fake it ‘til you make it

Jun 18, 2014

For the final session of course all the loss ends of the project needed to be finalized which ranged from implementing the remote-control to making the tightrope robot drive the tightrope safely, consistently and able to make a 180 degree turn without falling off.

Session 5 – Max and brother Beast

Jun 8, 2014

As the project was nearing its deadline the project was continue in parallel so building a tightrope platform and a small robot able to traverse it using a camera sensor all the while work continued on the balancing robots PID controller and calibration.

Session 4 – Are you ready to fumble?!

May 31, 2014

Now that the sensors were selected the relation between the sensors and the robots own orientation. As the idea was to make the robot follow a line autonomously a camera based solution was tested while a another iteration of the physical construction was made.

Session 3 – Balance bots, Roll out!

May 21, 2014

During this session a lot of work was done on building the base and wheel mounts of the robot. The accelerometer and gyro sensor was selected and tested to confirm the plausibility of using them to control the balancing robot. Finally the basis for the software was defined.

Session 2 – Max observing the competition

May 15, 2014

With the project idea defined this session was used to investigate the possible software solutions for making a ball balancing robot as well as an investigation of possible sensors for the robot. Finally testing and comparing possible motors for the robot.

Session 1 – Project kick off

May 8, 2014

With all of the pre planed lessons completed we were now tasked with defining our final project with would span the next 6 sessions. This session was about the initial brainstorming and analysis of the ideas with the most potential.
