There are situations when you are back home from supermarkets with lots of bags in your hands, or when you are holding foods that you could not free any of your hand to reach the door key in your pocket, or when you are locked out helpless. We will develop such facial recognition door lock that frees both of your hands and avoid locked-out situations.

We will design our own PCB that holds a input image sensor (OV7725), a microphone, a voltage regulator, a controller and DSP processor (ATMega328P, or seperate microcontroller and DSP chip) , USB port , and this will ouput the PWM to the motor driver which will drive the motor inside the lock.

We will use PYNQ board to run the identification model. It takes the DSP input from our PCB board and outputs the identification result back to the controller.

Thank you!

Pocket Pedal - A Bluetooth Controlled Effects Box

Featured Project

Our idea is to make an inexpensive alternative to traditional pedal powered guitar effects boxes. Essentially, we hope to implement a single aftermarket effects box that can be remote controlled via a mobile app. This low-power, Bluetooth connected application can control the box to change effects on the go. The hardware within the effects box will be able to alter the guitar's signals to create different sounds like echoing, looping, and distortion effects (and possibly more). These effects will be implemented using analog circuits that we will design and construct to be controlled by an app on your phone.

This project eliminates the expensive buy-in for a guitarist hoping to sound like any number of famous musicians with multiple effects pedals. On top of this, it also aims to get rid of the clutter that comes with the numerous pedals and boxes connected to an amplifier. Many pedals today don't even have a visual interface to select effects through some sort of menu. The app will also provide a much more handy and portable visual representation of the possible effects all from the phone in your pocket!
