One common problem when biking on campus is that you can't always see what is going on behind you. Sometimes it can be dangerous to turn your head around and take your focus off of what is in front of you. We plan on creating a device that can alert you when other bikes or cars are coming up from behind you, and want to pass. There is a product online that can do this with radar, but it is very expensive at around 300 dollars. It could be made cheaper using another type of sensor.

The object will be a belt with either ultrasonic or LiDAR sensors attached to it. The sensors will be used to measure distance and alert the wearer when an object exists in a blind spot or approaches too quickly. The belt will vibrate on the side that the object is so the person is alerted. This device will probably need to be battery powered, and have a long life.

LED Cube

Featured Project

LED technology is more advanced and much more efficient than traditional incandescent light bulbs and as such our team decided we wanted to build a device related to LEDs. An LED cube is inherently aesthetically pleasing and ours will be capable of displaying 3D animations and lighting patterns with much increased complexity compared to any 2D display of comparable resolution. Environmental interaction will also be able to control the various lighting effects on the cube. Although our plan is for a visually pleasing cube, our implementation can easily be adapted for more practical applications such as displaying 3D models.
