Jake Rice can program his desk clock to display anything
that comes off his computer. Rice turned to the ever-popular Arduino platform
to create a multi-function clock display that presents time in Arabic numerals
(hh:mm) and in binary (hh mm ss), as well as temperature in a two-digit readout
with the degrees symbol. Since it runs off USB power through a USB to TTL
adapter, the display could be programmed to display almost any data streamed
from the host computer.
Cool project! Well done! That said, It's apparent you used "Fritzing" to create the beadboard view and the schematic view. Why isn't there a reference to it? Also, is it just me or is there no listing of your code?
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
