2. Project Management¶
As suggested by Neil every Wednesday, I have structured the vision I have for my project in Spirals. These spirals define what I hope to achieve over the long-term. For Fabacademy, I focused on completing Spirals 1 and 2.
|A pan only system that can be operated manually||Closed System; Smooth motion; Wireless remote control unit; Battery for outdoor usage;|
|A pan only system with automatic tracking through low accuracy outdoor positioning tech||GPS tracking; Tracking achieved with separate, wireless, portable device; Self position and orientation awareness;|
|A pan only system with automatic tracking through indoor positioning tech||low accuracy indoor positioning system technology (BLE);|
|A pan only system with automatic tracking through indoor and outdoor positioning tech||System able to switch between both automatically;|
|A pan-tilt system with automatic tracking through indoor and outdoor positioning tech||pan and tilt; system able to track changes in all directions;|
Each spiral builds upon the previous one. All the features available in one should be available in the next.
- a. Understand how to obtain and interpret GPS data. Namely, what influences the effectiveness of a GPS module and how to make sense of the data.
- b. Determine how to use GPS module to derive the position of elements relative to others (differential positioning).
- a. Design a system that would allow the device to determine its orientation.
- a. Design a portable device whose GPS can be tracked and communicated OTA to the base system.
