This weeks assignment was to write an application that interfaces with an input and/or output device that you made from previous weeks
Project Planning & Prep
Here's my environmental box that I'm using for my final project. For right now, I'm only focusing on the "exterior" heating chamber.
The code will need to record, regulate, measure, and display. Here's a sketch of what I think the dashboard should look like. Ideally, this is wifi-broadcast to my computer but the box itself will need to have a little LCD display screen as well. It wont be as complicated as this dashboard though.
The dashboard is divided into 3 parts and a power button. From left to right: the psychometric chart will display where the two chambers sit in relation to ASHRAE defined comfort standards. In the center it's just a basic reading of the conditions within the chamber. On the right, it will show how the temperatures and humidities are changing over time.
Here are some dashboard displays from other products.
So I spent the majority of this week watching processing tutorials... I'm feeling a little more comfortable now, but coding is still a really foreign concept to me.
