Yes, summer is almost over and it’s been about the whole summer that I haven’t posted anything. That’s not to say that I haven’t been working on anything though. Here are a few of the things I’ve been working on.
This project hasn’t gone as quickly as I had hoped. I’ve been working mostly on the SONAR portion of it but frankly this summer has been very busy work-wise and thus I’ve been at a loss for getting stuff done. I’ve also been working on a viable, yet inexpensive depth sensor for the craft. For this I have to give a shout out to Farnell/Newark Canada who were kind enough to give me a sensor for the occasion. Visit them at http://canada.newark.com or http://element14.com
With this device I can easily keep an accurate depth reading up to my limit of 130ft. Yes the depth is arbitrary but that’s a good depth for most lakes around here. The idea first is to simply plunge the chassis down into the depths and record the images recorded from the main cabinet.
Well, there’s not much to her but perhaps I can get it dipped into a lake before the snow flies.
Yes, I’ve been working on games again. It’s a fun diversion for a while and it’s been a while since I’ve made anything substantial. Here’s a couple of screenshots
Anyways, aside from that I’m working on a basic design for a 2D stepper driven table for use with a stamping head but realistically I haven’t had the time to do anything with that.
We’ll see what the next few months brings!
