A healthy turnout for Codethecity 11. Following a few introductions, seven project ideas were pitched to the group:
- Aberdeen open data – where is it?
- Plant watering wifi greenhouse guardian
- Guide to Aberdeen
- Idea gathering system
- Computational model of a heart
- IOT Edge video recognition using Rasp Pi
- Robot theatre
Following the first hour of work, six teams had formed around these ideas. Just before lunch this is how the projects looked:
Working on data gathering and structure, form completed by more than 30 people already and team is working no adding structure to this.
Working with a combination of Raspberry Pi and MS Cognitive Services to do interesting things with image feeds. Hello Pi is now working, and initial research around using the image processing API.
PROD – Please Release Open Data
Team are working on pulling together a picture of the rate of open data progress in cities across the UK. Turning this into an infographic, while also working on data santa idea.
Out of Storage
Arduino project to create an interactive robot theatre. It’s alive – and the team are adding sophistication to the number of aspects that can be controlled.
Feed Me Now
The greenhouse management service is coming together. Sensors are dangling out of the windows of Fraser Noble Building confirming that it’s a little chilly out there. Ian is currently experimenting with http://www.blynk.cc/ as a shortcut for getting the boards talking to the internet. Working while tied by USB already.
The team is working on a simulation of a human heart – starting with a sphere as a simplistic model, and building from that.
