10/1/18 --> 10/7/18

Sam
1) Went to Microcenter to buy parts (2.5 hr)
2) Started assembling speaker units (1hr)
Pavan
1) Researched python packages needed for project (1 hr)
2) Attempted to fix Pi emailing IP (1 hr)
Sam & Pavan

  • Met to discuss progress (1.5 hr)
  • Went over new materials(.5 hr)

10/8/18 --> 10/14/18

Sam

  • Started to build speakers as per Link (2 hrs)
  • 1st speaker built and functioning though there is static problem (3hrs)
  • Started soldering parts together (.5hrs)
  • Created battery charging system for speaker 1 (.5 hrs)

Pavan

  • Worked on reading input to Pi and installing python packages needed for project (2 hrs)
  • Worked on making usb audio converter default device on pi and sound tests (2 hrs)
  • Worked on microphone input, but have not been successful yet (1 hr)

Sam & Pavan

  • Got audio to stream from Pi to 1st speaker (2hr)

Challenges
The Bluetooth transmitter is currently transmitting audio to one of the speakers, we have yet to send audio to two speakers simultaneously. Additionally, the speakers have quite a bit of static and need audio quality improvement.
