Today is the first day of coding. Really excited but little scared too….. with the responsibility that has come with this oppurtinity to contribute to the open source community.
Yesterday got a mail from Payoneer saying “Google Summer of Code has transferred a payment to your bank account”. Got my first GSoC payment. This is really a great news as I have already spent about Twenty Five Thousand Rupees on procuring the required equipments for development like Motion Sensors, Linear air track ( got it designed and manufactured locally…that saved a lot of money) Soldering Station and Air Blower.
Now its time that I really need to dedicate more time for some serious work. Planned to complete at least one experiment involving linear motion on frictionless platform. with a code for GUI to plot position- time graph. Earlier one attempt is failed due to malfunctioning of the sensor. I have procured new ultrasonic sensor SRF 05 from fab-to-lab Bangalore.
Need more pieces but its difficult to obtain these sensors as they are to be imported from China.
Also need to set up Linear air Track. Write document on design of low cost Linear air track.
