About This Project
This project was created with partnership with IGS Energy and PAST foundation to teach students about using renewable energy as a power source.
The project consists of two modes :
(1) Energy Monitoring Mode where upto 4 hand-crank-generated modules can be cranked and their energy generated can be seen in real-time.
(2) Game Mode : where 2 teams (consisting of 2 hand-cranked generator modules each) compete for 60 seconds against each other to generate the most amount of accumulated energy.
RaspeberryPi3-B+ with WiFi.
4x HandCranks (Pocket-Socket from KTor) connected to i2c based ADC that monitor voltage and another ADC that monitors current.
2x GPIO controlled Relays
Triggers & Alerts
Yes, we used a GPIO-based trigger to initiate the game that turns on the Game-Relays.
We adjusted the time-schedule of posts to be 1/4 of a second.
