We launched our balloon and this is what happened on our journey. And here is how most of the journey went down.
Welcome to the internet home of Andrew Wilkie
Here is what some of the code looks like, and what the overall software is meant to do during flight.
The clock is counting down and here is what we have completed and we still need to do before we can launch this balloon.
Testing some prototypes can be expensive, so we decided to simulate what the hardware and software would go through to see the effects and find bugs (unexpected features) in the software.
In preparation for our final launch, we built a test rocket with prototypes on-board. This allowed us to test everything and find out what will work, what won’t, what should have worked and what we need to change and fix before the final deadline.
YICTE – Young ICT Explorers. YICTE is a competition run all around Australia getting students who love ICT and anything in general apply their knowledge and abilities to solve real world issues.
We decided to make this project extra special by design almost everything from scratch, this includes the circuit board.
Building a circuit take quite a bit of time and effort. A schematic has to be constructed – which is a diagram showing the links between all of the electronics. A prototype should be built and tested, the schematic refined and then finally the PCB […]
