After a couple of weeks of hard work, we finished a project course called “Smart Environments”. Our groups project was called Ambion. One can find more info on: http://ambion.bob-loos.com/?page_id=31 we think our project was a succes. We also presented our product in 10 minutes to other students and some other interested people. This was done by Julia and me. Our stand was built up like a room, so we could walk through an imaginary door to demonstrate how the system turns on when entering the room. Once you have entered it, it will determine one of 7 moods: party, romantic, sleepy, wake-up, casual, casual sunny and casual rainy. It does this by checking with how many people you are in the room, the weather outside, the day and the time. What I did for this project was mainly programming. I programmed an arduino so that it could control 2 lamps by mimicking a remote control. Also as the groups’ “artist” I made some visual impressions of the working of the system. Another technical part I made was the user override. The team is very happy with the accomplished prototype especially concidering the amout of time we had for it, ¬†and so were the instructors. They gave us a 9 for this course.
