CSE Senior Design I Superior Designs, Inc. Summer 2010 Approved Projects (for delivery December 2010) Instructor: Mike O’Dell
1 Onboard Diagnostics for Race Car Design and develop a device that will read and display information from a formula SAE Hybrid Race Car Device reads and records information from several onboard sensors (throttle, brakes, etc.) Remote display device shows plot of readings vs. time. Sensor data used to control race car’s electric motor. Sponsor: Formula SAE Race Team/Dr. Woods
1 Remote Game Survey Device Design and develop a small portable camera array that can be used to detect and record wild game movement. Array captures images of surrounding area at specified intervals GPS locator included to find/track device Images are uploaded via transient wireless connection to laptop in roving vehicle(s). Base station software stitches images to provide 360-degree panorama. Sponsor: UTA Vision Lab (Dr. Athitsos)??
1 Cycling Monitor Develop a device for a bicycle to keep track of the rider’s speed, location, direction, elevation, balance, and cadence. Include and interface to advise rider when to shift gears, etc. Detect and adjust for turns vs. slight changes in direction. Sponsor: Dr. Nystrom?? (or sports equipment manufacturer)
1 Voice-Operated Tread Mill Design and develop a system that controls a treadmill based on voice commands. Interface voice control device with “standard” treadmill mechanical controls (e.g. speed and incline) Include safety override commands Sponsor: Marcus Oladell (or sports equipment manufacturer??)
1 Directional Sound Receiver Design and develop a system consisting of an array of omni-directional microphones. Adjust delays in the audio streams from microphones to reinforce sound/suppress noise. Develop user interface to monitor and control speaker selection. Potential application: speaker selection in a conference room/meeting Sponsor: Umair Sadiq/UTA Lab??
1 Weather Balloon Data Collector Design and develop a system to be attached to a weather balloon to collect environmental data (position, altitude, temperature, pressure, humidity, etc). Module should also be able to detach from the baloon via remote command, timer, or upon detection of a specified event. Data collector module deploys parachute and detection device to allow recovery. Sponsor: UTA GeoScience Lab??
1 Automated Pet Door Design and develop device to provide advanced controls (beyond on/off) for a dog/cat door. Provided controls to times door is open, separate access for different pets, etc. Provide capability for remote (web-based) access to control interface. Sponsor: Marcus Oladell (or pet equipment manufacturer??)
