Photos of PCB

Though I would add some pho­tos of the PCB (frontside and back­side with and with­out com­po­nents)

The PCB is work­ing and cur­rently we are wait­ing impa­tiently for the cas­ing to arrive for us to be able to do some more exten­sive measurements.

Micro controller USB programming

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Nec­es­sary files and a doc­u­ment describ­ing how to set up the micro con­troller such that it can be pro­grammed via USB has been added to the Micro con­troller pro­gram­ming page. Of cause the doc­u­ment is pri­mar­ily con­cerned with the Open­Shoe imple­men­ta­tion but is quite gen­eral and could help out in con­fig­ur­ing any AVR32 microcontroller.

Casing documentation

The doc­u­men­ta­tion describ­ing the cas­ing has now been added under Cas­ing. The doc­u­men­ta­tion include 1) A pdf doc­u­ment in which the cad-drawing of the cas­ing can be rotated. 2) Design files which can be opened in the cad soft­ware which has been used. 3) STL-file for man­u­fac­tur­ing the cas­ing. Enjoy!

Note: The cur­rent cas­ing is for rapid pro­to­typ­ing where the screws can­not be threaded directly in the plas­tic. Updated ver­sions for vac­uum suc­tion mold­ing will prob­a­bly be uploaded once we get there.

Software documentation

Some ini­tial soft­ware doc­u­men­ta­tion has now been added under Doc­u­men­ta­tion. The doc­u­men­ta­tion has been auto­mat­i­cally gen­er­ated with Doxy­gen so all con­tent can be found as com­ments in the code and the doc­u­men­ta­tion will be updated as the code is fur­ther documented.

Current status

Though I would briefly describe the cur­rent sta­tus of this home­page and the project. As you can see from ear­lier posts this home­page was just set up so cur­rently there is lit­tle con­tent on it. I’ve just set up part of the struc­ture as I believe we will want to have it. Hope­fully we will be able to fill in the struc­ture with some con­tent dur­ing the com­ming weeks. How­ever, the con­tent (doc­u­men­ta­tion of the project) does only par­tially exist so the process will prob­a­bly take some time.

As for the project itself, it is in a rather rap­pid progress. After start­ing from scratch two month ago we now expect to have a first pro­to­type assem­beled and work­ing within a week. The soft­ware is on alpha-level but we expect to reach beta-level within a cou­ple of weeks. As for hard­ware, we have gone through one revi­sion of our ini­tial test board (PCB) and just recently we received a fist ver­sion of the final board. The cas­ing is cur­rently under man­u­fac­tur­ing (we hope).

For swedish speak­ing peo­ple there is some fur­ther infor­ma­tion under the blog Intel­li­gent shoes in india.
