-February 15, 2018 (Kelvin Xie, 15 minutes)

  • Finalized specific parts
  • Ordered parts

-February 15, 2018 (Ahmed Hassan, 1.5 hours)

  • Set up Pi and set up email forwarding for SSH

-February 16, 2018 (Graham Webb, 35min)

  • installed Android Studio
  • installed android app simulater
  • read user manual for Android Studio
  • researched potential app-learning software

-February 16, 2018 (Ahmed Hassan, Dr. Feher, 1.5 hours)

  • Resolved Remote Login on Raspberry Pi
  • Started Work on Presentation

-February 18,2018 (Graham Webb, 30 min)

  • Presentation work

Week 4: (2/19-2/26)

-February 20, 2018 (Graham Webb, 20 min)

  • Meeting with Feher

-February 20, 2018 (Kelvin Xie, 2 hours 30 minutes)

  • Work on presentation
  • Updated Raspberry Pi to Pixel
  • Familiarized myself with the Raspberry Pi interface
  • Worked on the VNC server and how to get and email the IP address on boot up. Struggling getting the VNC working properly. Still a work in progress.
    • Work on the VNC server was passed from Ahmed to myself

-February 20, 2018 (Ahmed Hassan, 30 minutes)

-February 21, 2018 (Kelvin Xie, 4 hours)

  • Continued work on VNC connection
  • Enabled VNC cloud connection so IP address is no longer required for remote connection
    • VNC server automatically opens on startup
    • Full remote access achieved. As a test, this log update was done through the Raspberry Pi from my iPad
  • Began learning the necessary programming to control the servo
  • Began research/plan for building the servo-pi connection

-February 23, 2018 (Ahmed Hassan, 1.5 hours)

  • Set up AWS Serer
    • Already had PyCharm and Python installed and loaded up laptop

-February 24, 2018 (Kelvin Xie, 3 hours)

  • Learned how to make proper connections between Raspberry Pi and Servo
    • Spliced USB cable and put together wiring
  • Began learning how to control servo through Raspberry Pi
    • Achieved basic movement control of servo
      • Next step will be to learn and implement precise control of servo movement
  • Began learning more specific python commands to control the servo more precisely
    • Challenges arisen
      • I can't seem to get the code to properly send the necessary signals. Since the Pi uses pulse width modulation, I am having difficulty figuring out timing to make the movements precise

-February 26th, 2018 (Graham Webb, 2 hours)

  • Hello World project

-Goals for Next Week: (Completed)

  • AWS Server being functional
  • Estimote API and Android App being Functional
  • Get Servo and Pi working together
