Jan. 21, 2015 Time Contribution Frederic Work - R&D optics 1.00 HR Looked into best light sources and detectors for the sensor, documented this in the R&D doc. Product design stage Design Electronic - Optical soil moisture sensor: Optoelectronic design diagram
Design Mechanical - Optical soil moisture sensor: 3D model of 3D printed transducer
Jan. 21, 2015 Time Contribution Tibi Work - Documenting 2.00 HR Worked on sourcing and documenting components for the sensor, mostly light source and detector. I documented that in the R&D doc. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hmMMSnVA4iQygfQtlQcdtnHQs6OqX18vnC7YoBZxX6Y/edit#heading=h.aj5j1lmiudld This was done on Frederic's input on light sources and detectors. I also created an Instructable document. For now, it is just a placeholder, but the idea is to produce a doc to distribute to open source communities.
