3 Project Summary Goal: Image Fossils Buried in Rock Major Components: Ultrasonic Sensor, Data Acquisition, and PC Signal Processing in MATLAB Data Acquisition with Tektronix TDS3012B e*scope

4 System Block Diagram

5 Data Acquisition

6 Overall Block Diagram

7 Sensor Block Diagram Acoustic Sensor Description: A device that sends a burst of 16 50[kHz] acoustical pulses Acoustic Foam Description: The acoustical foam narrows the dispersion angle of the sensor to provide more accurate results

8 Oscilloscope Block Diagram Oscilloscope Description: The oscilloscope provides a means to view the data graphically Format Output Description: This allows the graphical data to be put into a form that can be imported to a PC with MATLAB

9 Signal Processing PC with MATLAB Description: The signal processing will allow the user to see the object in three dimensions, and will give other useful data about the object (e.g. length, width, and height)

10 Software Flow Chart Import Data This converts the data into a useable form for MATLAB manipulation Correlate Data This allows multiple echoes contained in each other to be determined Dimension Determination Using time delays the dimensions of an object can be determined 3-D Plot This allows the user to view a specific object in 3-D

11 User Interface Move Sensor by Hand Acquire Data with Oscilloscope Run MATLAB M-File
