Collecting Data I collected water samples from three separate locations along the stream. The first location was closest to the storm water collection pond and its overflow discharge point. The second was at the very opposite end of the streams furthest point before passing under college parkway. The third location was directly under the bridge connecting East and West campus. These locations are labeled on the photo attached. The variables I was testing for was pH, Salinity,
This past week I explored the statistics and machine learning toolbox in Matlab. I applied basic statistics concepts I am learning at AACC. For example, I wrote a program that performs linear regression and calculates Pearson's product moment correlation and a least squares line. I spent a lot of time looking at correlations in data sets. There is a strong positive correlation between the price of the OPEC crude oil bundle and the exchange rate of the Venezuelan Bolivares. Th
Last week I helped Fred with the prototype 6 Degree of Freedom arm. We Figured out how to connect the transmitter and power to the arm. Now we've been focusing on tuning the controls to have a wider range and move more smoothly. I've also been looking into the Moitessier HAT for a raspberry pi. This HAT has multiple sensors attached to it such as a gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer sensors, GNSS receiver, and AIS receiver. From these sensors, it can provide compass headi
This week I have further tuned the robotic arm that I worked on last week. After finishing the tuning I worked on organizing some of the lab while waiting for my next assignment. I am now writing a program that is the same logic from my AWS CLI project but runs on Linux.
This week I have configured a long range receiver to control six servo motors that move a robotic arm. There still needs to be some configuring done to achieve the servos full degrees of movement but all six move fluently. Once they are configured fully then they can be tested on the new arm that Hunter is developing.
