The cheap, tiny, cloud enabled Wi-Fi dev board. Arduino compatible, 32-bit, wireless programming, and a REST API data cloud!
Oak is a tiny Arduino Compatible development board with built-in Wi-Fi and a secure cloud-powered platformcalled RootCloud (online IDE, REST API, and Dashboard) which makes it easy to create cloud-connected electronic devices, projects, and products.
While the Oak is fully Arduino Compatible – it also has some serious performance: it uses a 32-bit microcontroller running at 80Mhz (overclockable to 160Mhz) which is contained in a custom Digistump made MCU and 802.11b/g/n WiFi module with awesome range and FCC/CE approval, 11 I/O pins, wide range voltage regulator, SPI, I2C, Uart, and more!
Now anyone can afford to build devices for the internet of things – put a Wi-Fi thermometer in every room! Wi-Fi toys! Wi-Fi toasters! Wi-Fi all the things!
SANKALP, the national level Technical symposium organized by the School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (SEEE), Sastra university,Tanjore, challenges the wits and puts to test the conceptual knowledge of budding engineers.
SANKALP, meaning “To Pledge” in Sanskrit, expresses the commitment shown by the SEEE in bringing out the best in every student.
Making its rebound in the 3rd edition, SANKALP promises to provide the students an enthralling and intellectual exposure in engineering and innovation. Spanning over 48 hours with extravagant prize money at stake, SANKALP is one of the most awaited technical symposiums in the country.
Brainsense -Brain Controlled Robots Competition at Sankalp was conducted.
mBot is the easiest educational robot for kids to learn programming, Arduino and robotics.
mBot is a low cost, easy-to-run robot kit for kids to get hands-on experience about graphical programming, electronics, robotics. It is an all-in-one solution for robotics learning and designed for STEM education.
Graphical programming inspired by Scratch 2.0
What can you do with mBot…
Build a wall avoidance robot
Build a line follower robot
Play some musical tones.
Control the robot by remote control provided or standard TV remote
IR communication with other mBots for robotic cooperation like dancing.
Interact with Scratch, using sensors to play games and stories in Scratch 2.0.
Controlled by App to play football or fight!
The US Department of Defense developed Biozen® to help service members use the therapeutic benefits of biofeedback. BioZen is the first portable, low-cost method for clinicians and patients to use biofeedback in and out of the clinic.This app takes many of the large medical sensors in a clinic and puts them in the hands of anyone with a smart phone. BioZen makes it easier for anyone to get started with biofeedback.
BioZen shows real-time data from multiple body sensors including electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyography (EMG), galvanic skin response (GSR), electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), respiratory rate, and skin temperature. It also displays Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma brain waves and can combine the brain waves to show users their meditative and attentive cognitive states.
Each sensor sends a separate signal to the phone so users can see how their body is responding to their behavior with an easy-to-use visualization module.
Users can create notes to document and categorize their recording session. BioZen automatically generates graphical feedback from the recording sessions to monitor their progress over time.
The mobile app is built on an open source framework Bluetooth Sensor Processing for Android, also known as B-SPAN (link is external), developed by T2.
Matlab R2010a and CCSv3.3 can also use to generate the code for CCS project (.pjt) but the problem is CCSv3.3 can be installed properly only in Windows XP 32 bit machines. If you have Windows XP 32 bit machine then you can go ahead with Matlab R2010a and CCSv3.3 setup. We already have a solution for that setup.

This blog example shows how to use the XMakefile functionality to generate and build code from a simple model using a makefile. You will configure your model to generate code for a Texas Instruments (TI) processor and to build with a Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio (CCS) tool chain.
Before precede this makefilegeneration tutorial watch this video tutorial link:
Type xmakefilesetup in matlab command window and enter.
XMakefile User Configuration windows appear,
Template – gmake
Configuration – ticcs_c2000_ccsv4 and uncheck the Display operational configurations only
In Tool Directives choose the CCS Installation, Code Generation Tools and DSP/BIOS Installation path.
File – New – Model
Open the Simulink and go to the Embedded Coder.
Embedded Target – Right click the Target Preference and to the untitled model file.
Double Click the Target and set as the following figure
Embedded Target - Processor – Texas Instruments C2000 – C281x – add the Digital Input and Digital Output block.
Double the individual block set as in the following respective figure
Note: Digital Input choose A11,A12,A13,A14 and Digital Output choose F11,F12,F13,F14 because switches and led’s are connected respectively in TMS320F2812 Primer kit
Go to Simulation – Configuration parameter – IDE Link keep the setting as in below figure
File – Save – filename.mdl [save it in matlab default path].
Click Incremental build.
In Matlab command window print the text as status about the make file generation for TMS32OF2812.
Minimize the MATLAB or we may close it.
Code Composer Studio
Open Code Composer Studiov4 and any default workspace path.
View – Target configuration file.
Right click user defined – NewTargetConfiguration – finish.
Connection – Texas Instruments XDS100v1 USB Emulator.
Device – TMS320F2812.
Right click NewTargetConfiguration.ccxml – Launch selected Configuration.
Right click Thread [main] (Disconnected (Suspended)) – Connect Target.
Target – Load program – Browse the default MATLAB path and you have the folder name of filename_ticcs open it – go to the CustomMW folder [because inside this folder out file is generated] and choose filename.out – open – then click ok.
