This quarter the team work toward integrating the control into one system through a Texas Instruments microcontroller. This will include collecting and interpreting analog output to determine power generated and displaying the outcome on an LCD screen.
Control: Focusing on creating resistance for green bike trainer to allow Triathlon bikers to harness energy.
Sensing: Focusing on using Hall Effect sensors to measure the current and voltage and outputs onto a low res lcd display screen.
Programming: Focusing on re-writting Arduino code for new TI microcontroller.
