A tomada inteligente segue a filosofia proposta pelo protocolo internacional de medição e verificação (PIMVP) que diz “não gerenciamos aquilo que não medimos”. Porém, nem sempre temos um equipamento acessível ou recurso adequado para isso. A proposta da tomada é fornecer aos usuários um sistema de medição e controle sem a necessidade de grandes investimentos. O adaptador de tomada inteligente possui um circuito de medição de corrente elétrica e um circuito para medição da tensão elétrica presente na tomada. Estas informações são, inicialmente, armazenadas em na memória interna da tomada. Um aplicativo desenvolvido para dispositivos Android se comunica com a tomada, através da rede wireless da residência. Link do dropbox para acessar arquivos: Dropbox - Tomada Inteligente

Data acquisition system for Kinetis K Family Author : Mauro Padin (Student) Supervisors : Professor Daniel A. Jacoby, Juan Pablo Vega (Teacher Assistant)   Summary:   This project is based on the FRDM-K64F board, a HC-05 Bluetooth module, and a smartphone. In this application, an analog signal is sampled and transmitted wirelessly to a smartphone, using an external Bluetooth module, where it is displayed. The complete CodeWarrior C code and MIT App Inventor code can be found in the .zip file. System Structure SysTick Module: Periodically triggers ADC conversions and UART transmissions. ADC Module: Samples the analog signal and manages the ADC input buffer. UART Module: Manages the UART output buffer and transmits the digitized data. Bluetooth Module: When connected, wirelessly transmits the data coming from the UART module. Smartphone App: Handles Bluetooth connection, receives the digitized data and manages the display.   Software Structure   A project template is provided to the students in order to establish a simple, and easy, program organization for the duration of the course. A portion of the template was built with the help of the Processor Expert so that, later on, the students would be able to understand its structure and limitations, and transition to this new tool. A wrapper was built around this auto-generated code and the resulting function, void __LDM_init (void) , is to be used at the very beginning of the project given. This function mainly configures internal processor registers related to clock configuration.   The project is composed of separate files for each hardware and software module:   The template is composed of four files: LDM.c/h, main.c, and misc.h. The application is found in: App.c/h RTI, ADC, UART, LED Drivers are defined in: RTI.c/h, adc.c/h, uart.c/h, and LED.c/h.   The basic Driver structure consists of a void DRV_init(void) initialization, a set of void DRV_ x _ISR(void) interrupt handlers, a set of void DRV_ x _PISR(void) periodic interrupt handlers, and a set of void DRV_ x services function. Only the initialization function is mandatory, the others being optional and dependent on the driver purpose. Service functions are interfaces between the application and the Driver and do not necessarily access any subjacent hardware. Indeed, this Driver structure can be nested and thus not handle any hardware at all. When a Driver function does access hardware, it is recommended to further use a Hardware Abstraction Layer to enhance productivity and improve portability.   Extracts of the system   As an example of the Driver Structure, the LED Driver is described below:   init void LED_init   (void)   ISR N/A   PISR void LED_PISR   (void)    Services void LED_write   (color_t color, bool value) void LED_set   (color_t color) void LED_clear   (color_t color) void LED_toggle (color_t color)   The entire application is interrupt driven, so that only initialization are necessary and the run loop is empty:   void App_init(void) {   LED_init();   // LED driver init function   uart_init();   // UART driver init function   adc_init();   // ADC driver init function   RTI_init();   // RTI driver init function }   void App_run(void) { }       Hardware interrupts are not serviced in their specific handler but referred to external handlers for readability and organization. The SysTick interrupt handler is composed of a ISR and a Service :   ISR_t SysTick_Handler(void) {   LED_isr code   ADC_conv code } The code for the smartphone side is depicted below:     Finally, a screenshot of the result:       Original Attachment has been moved to: -ADC-bluetooth-TP6.zip

To comply with the rule that mentions that “One processor - No auxiliary processor or other programmable device is allowed”. Participants must check the camera used for the competition. The camera cannot have a processing unit that processes the image for localization, polarization, auto contrast or auto focus. The only authorization is for a compression engine (no image processing, only compression). An Analog to Digital external converter can be used. Such as AD7276/AD7277/AD7278 . For any additional cameras, please contact your Regional Freescale Cup Coordinator. They can confirm if the camera can be used and it will be added to this list for further inquiries. Camera Allowed: TSL1401R−LF TSL1401-DB SEN-11745 OV-5116N Melexis MLX75306 Linear Optical Array Some restricted cameras and some examples why: OV-2540 This camera can be programmed and processes the image output. Not allowed. CM-26N/P This camera has • Auto gain, • Auto contrast and • Auto focused. OV6630 C3038 VGA OV7670
