I am a PhD candidate at
University of Oulu, Finland.
Hello! My name is Arash Sattari. I am participating in Fab Academy 2019 from Fab Lab Oulu, in Finland. I got a Bachelor's degree in Electronics
and a master’s in Electrical Engineering in my homeland Iran. Then I moved to Finland to continue my journey in Computer Science. I graduated in Ubiquitous Computing
master’s program at University of Oulu in 2018, and started a PhD at UBICOMP research group of University of Oulu.
My familiarity with Fab Lab concept comes from UBISS 2017 summer school (“Digital Product Realization: Making Things That Matter”), which was held in Fab Lab Oulu. Also I have done multiple SMD soldering and PCB designs in FabLab. My research is focused on embedded web services, and I will require to build my own embedded devices and related physical parts such as cases, wearable devices, holders, etc. Therefore, Extending my knowledge and skill regarding digital fabrication tools will be really helpful for me in my further research. Beyond that, working with fabrication tools has been always one of my main interests.
In the final project a block heater pole will be redesigned in the way that user can set the timer remotely over the internet using a mobile application. The driver can set the timer for the heaters through an android application. A GPRS module (SIM900) embedded with an AVR microcontroller provides data transfer capability. In addition, the system has a temperature sensor to measure the ambient temperature. The obtained data can be used to set the heater timer more efficiently. Also, a current sensor will measure the electricity consumption. A solid-state relay will be used in order to turn the heater on and off by microcontroller command signals.
