Blog 3

For my past work this week, I finished the Software Design Document, Controls Requirements Document, and Position Requirements Document with my team. The Design Document entails descriptions about the project more in-depth and explains how we will be approaching the project into the next semester. The Requirements Document for each team tells them what we need from each team in terms of data from their projects.

Coming into the next week, I will be working on connecting all of the components. Thanks to the Summer 2016 team, the Arduino module is already connected to the server(computer) through the XBee systems. My responsibility will be to connect the MySQL database to the server and receive data from the Arduino into the MySQL database.

Second Post

We have set up our sprints on Tuesday and have been working on the project since then.

In my sprint, I am responsible for learning how data will transfer from the hardware on the 1/12th pod into a database to be usable for our phone application. This data will be used for:

Tracking the pod on the track

Determining best route for each pod

Efficiently loading and unloading people in the pod

Also, for Engr 195c, I am the web developer for the project. I continue to work on that as I work on the data transfer
