description of project
Description of Project
  • Our high level objective will be to develop a camera system that:
    • Can collect aerial photographs from a small manned aircraft.
    • Fill a void in the current market that is cost effective and functionally competitive.
    • Alleviate the incurred required upgrades that traditional systems need every few years.

Description of Project

Why is this a good Senior Design Project?

  • Designing this camera system will:
    • Use classroom knowledge to solve a practical “real world” engineering problem
    • Gain knowledge in solving problems with physical limitations
    • Gain hardware and software experience
    • Integrate multiple components into a working system

Description of Project

Goal of Project

  • Construct a high quality camera system using multiple commodity digital cameras.
    • Design to control the cameras and sustain their environment using electronics and software
    • Build the control system
    • Test the whole camera system to and collect aerial photographs from aircraft.
roles
Roles
  • Team Lead: Nathan Heermann
    • Brainstorm and research solutions with the team
    • Handle communication and scheduling with mentor
    • Monitor project’s milestones
    • Develop proof-of-concept tests for circuitry
roles1
Roles
  • Group Member: Larry Schweizer
    • Brainstorm solutions with the team
    • Research, design, build, and test applicable solutions to use a single board computer to control the cameras and their settings
    • Research, design, build, and test a heating solution for the camera box
roles2
Roles
  • Group Member: Teressa Specht
    • Brainstorm solutions with the team
    • Research, design, build, and test applicable solutions for the power circuitry within the aircraft
    • Research, design, build, and test the control box that will be installed in the cabin of the aircraft
roles3
Roles
  • Sponsor/Mentor: Philip Heermann
    • Meet with students regularly to discuss progress
    • Give technical guidance through suggestions and advice
    • Review documentation for accuracy
roles4
Roles
  • Additional Support: Austin Heermann and Mike Douglas
    • Mechanic (Mike) will install all components and wiring onto the aircraft
    • Mechanic will ensure FAA safety requirements are met during inspection of the system after installation
    • Pilot (Austin) will be available for test flights
    • Austin will help install camera system components into the camera box
major milestones
Major Milestones
  • Drive the cameras with the Arduino daughter card
  • Control the camera settings through a single board computer using a USB interface
  • Develop a power system for the cameras
  • Develop a control box inside of aircraft for cameras and power system
  • Software Development
    • Camera Controlling(shutter speed, aperture, etc)
    • GPS/IMU data packets(latitude & longitude, and roll, pitch & yaw.)
deliverables
Deliverables
  • The system must be safe to fly on a manned aircraft and handle the aircraft environment
  • The camera system must be able to control up to 9 cameras simultaneously, firing at a frequency of 2Hz
  • Coordinate camera exposure settings
  • Camera triggering enable/control switch for pilot with indicator light (start/stop camera triggering)
deliverables1
Deliverables
  • Means to extract data without disassembly of camera pod
  • GPS/INU shall be synchronized to camera triggering to supply 3D position and orientation of cameras
  • Aircraft power is 24V, current requirements must be documented to assure sufficient aircraft power.
  • Supply power to 9 cameras
  • Documentation on the complete camera system
biggest challenges concerns
Biggest Challenges & Concerns
  • Power System Development
    • Each component is powered at a different voltage level
  • Communication Between Hardware Components
    • Establish how to make them “talk” and work together
    • Custom cabling
    • Software
  • Controlling Environmental Conditions
    • Vibration, Temperature (-40C)
  • FAA requirements
future tasks
Future Tasks

Tasks Planned for the next month:

  • Build prototype board for camera triggering
  • Design, order and build camera control box for inside the aircraft cabin
  • Get GPS/IMU to communicate with the Arduino board and the single board computer
