Nov. 9, 2015 Time Contribution Daniel Work - Engineering 5.00 HR Printed the Arms of the new and improved Clamp design, and the Hands parts also. In PLA with better tolerances and better Slicing program Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
Nov. 7, 2015 Time Contribution Daniel Work - Engineering 10.00 HR 3D printed the 3 micro-manipulators in black PLA with some improvements to the design, some new tolerance tweaking and sliced with a new 3D printing program that generates smarter tool path. Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
Oct. 16, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - Facilitation and coordination 1.00 HR Filmed and uploaded two videos to show the fully assembled gimbal and Martinez board and micromanipulators. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-s1IR1iOMsNZUdhcXpuNzBDNGc https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-s1IR1iOMsNeVhrM0xMZk9ZVjg Milestone 3 Coordination and Facilitation
Oct. 9, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - Programming software 2.00 HR Tested gimbal softwared and tuned PID Discovered existing function in Martinez firmware to steer gimbal that's used for offset angle in each separate axis. Milestone 3 - Programming for Product for PV characterization
Oct. 9, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - Documenting 1.00 HR Created new folder and file to document the "Hacking" of the Martinez board firmware and added schematics and other resources for the board. Milestone 3 Write report
Oct. 6, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - Programming software 3.00 HR Worked with Ahmed dissecting code from Martnez board firmware. Discovered a "hack" which involves repurposing code that allows positioning from a radio tranceiver to steer the gimbal. Will be documented here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EsbKVIiIv3CwwdEfHAulFlN79mMA1c7V8IUa5KiJcqo/edit?usp=sharing Milestone 3 - Programming for Product for PV characterization
Oct. 2, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - R&D electronics 2.00 HR Soldered and hooked up two of the Martinez Gimbal controllers. Milestone 3 - Electronics Assembly for PV characterization
Oct. 2, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - Programming software 3.00 HR Struggled to connect Martinez board to pc due to vague instructions to update firmware with included GUI. FTDI chip on board only works with specific driver version and NOT with up to date Arduino drivers. Process will be documented here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EsbKVIiIv3CwwdEfHAulFlN79mMA1c7V8IUa5KiJcqo/edit?usp=sharing Milestone 3 - Programming for Product for PV characterization
Oct. 1, 2015 Time Contribution Daniel Work - Engineering 10.00 HR 3D printed new Bracket that holds the new Clamp with holes for the IMU, and the bottom part of the Clamp Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
Oct. 1, 2015 Receive Tibi Currency - Canadian Dollars 56.00 CAD Paid at the store
Oct. 1, 2015 Give Tibi Currency - Canadian Dollars 56.00 CAD Paid at the store
Sept. 30, 2015 Time Contribution Daniel Work - Engineering 10.00 HR 3D printed 2 feet for the new Gimbal and 2 L-shaped brackets Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
Sept. 29, 2015 Time Contribution Daniel Work - Engineering 10.00 HR Redesigned the gimbal with 2 support ''Feet'' to compensate for the weight of the gimbal. Ans with 2 L-shaped Brackets. Rounded the corners of the whole gimbal design Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
Sept. 28, 2015 Time Contribution Daniel Work - R&D mechanics 3.00 HR I assembled the micromanipulator prototype previously 3D printed, with the screws I bought from the local store. Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
Sept. 25, 2015 Time Contribution Jim Work - Programming software 5.00 HR Designed basic GUI and uploaded to SENSORICA/ PV Characterization on github dev branch https://github.com/Sensorica/PVCharacterization Milestone 3 - Programming for Product for PV characterization
Sept. 23, 2015 Time Contribution Tibi Work - R&D mechanics 1.00 HR worked with Daniel on the redesign of Gimbal parts. We solved the weight balance and the 2 points support for the main gimbal arm. Daniel is implementing this in the design Milestone 3 - Mechanical Assembly for PV characterization
