  • Gyroscope Calibration:

    • Turn module on, and leave on a stable surface until the processor led blinks. Moving the module during this process will cause the module to not calibrate properly, resulting in possible drift.

  • Battery Charging:

    • Turn module on

    • Plug in micro USB Cable

    • Yellow light on charging module will turn green when the battery is fully charged

Test bench

Test Bench

  • Approximates a sine wave from 4 to 20 Hz

  • Solid state relay triggering system for solenoid actuators

  • Adjustable amplitude using duty cycle

  • Integrated gyroscope DAQ

  • Thermistor DAQ

Engineering requirements with results

Engineering Requirements with Results


Accelerometers vs gyroscopes

Accelerometers VS Gyroscopes

Beyond 80 cm, or 31.5 in, gyroscopes begin to out sense over accelerometers.


Extended runtime testing

Extended Runtime Testing

Total Runtime:10.1Hours

Response time

Response Time

Prototype:

  • The code was run for 10 seconds

    • The average time it took to run through the code was 1.4 ms

      NST Module:

  • The Pathways performance logger was used to determine response time to a step response

    • Before update – 300 ms forward, 70 ms reverse

    • After update – 40 ms forward, 20 ms reverse


Response time1

Response Time

NST Module:

  • While the teensy was sending commands to simulate a sine wave the performance logger was run

    • Response time – 3.4 ms

Possible Drift**

No Drift

  • Data Sets:

  • No Drift = {69.75, 20.06, 24.39, 47.06, 56.74, 44.64}

  • Possible Drift = {-13.95, 9.65, 36.18, 25.76, 43.98}

  • Extreme Drift = {-145.65}

  • Averages:

  • ND&PD&ED = 16.85%

  • ND&PD = 33.11%

  • ND = 45.60%

**Drift in image is due to incorrect calibration of gyroscope


Ease of use ergonomics survey

Ease of Use/Ergonomics Survey


Ease of use ergonomics survey1

Ease of Use/Ergonomics Survey

  • Comments:

  • Module is hard to aim when the correction algorithm activated at the same time as the button press.

    • This led us to add a slight delay from when the button is pressed to when the correction activates

  • User did not know when the correction was turned on without looking at the switch

    • Led to us adding an LED light on the Teensy processor
