Day1: Creating a Robot
Trip to SP Road
Lighting up a LED using Potentiometer
Capacitor and LED]
LDR and Transistor
Making a toy
AmplifierReading the circuit diagram and getting the connections right was a lot of work. It was also frustrating when others were already done with the assignment. After cross checking between the diagram and the actual circuit I could figure out what's wrong. I was amused by the alien sounds that were created when connected with different capacitors. The LM386 looked like a 8 legged spider which made the connections increase in number and complexity.
SpeakerMaking our own working speakers,the assignment was a fun process. I chose a cardboard box and made a few modifications to keep the phone and for easy volume adjustment.
The working of the speaker is shown in the video []
It was my first time working with an Arduino board. I got accustomed to the few basic syntax rules as they were direct and coherent. Blinking a LED using Arduino, controlling the delay and also, controlling it with the LDR were simple tasks with simple commands. ]
Knight RiderBy looking at the original video for Knight Rider, I thought that it was next to impossible to replicate the same effects. But soon enough as I started working on it, it was actually easy. The link for the video []
Magic ManI was working in a group with Rajat and Mizba. I did not want to limit myself by doing only a particular task. Hence, I tried helping in all the stages; ideation, design, coding, making the body and connections, etc. UV sensor has a lot of varied uses for practical purposes. But we had to come up with an object that did something magical. We did a card trick in which the number on the card wpuld be represented by the number of flashing LEDs on the magician's hand. ]
A group task done along with Payal, Prarthana, Shivon, Anushka, Rajat and Saurabh. Rajat and I were working on the infographics and the representation of collected data on the web. We chose to measure values of CO, temperature and humidity. We worked extensively on Illustrator and getting the color combinations right. It was a collective effort where the programming, coding and designing groups got together and discussed the progress each time. We finally represented the data using graphs plotting time on X-axis and the values on Y-axis.
