Feb. 5, 2020 2.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Went to Concordia with Isa, negociated at the library, the makerspace, to 3D print the parts for free. Got the 3D models, prepared them, sliced them, estimated print time and arranged for printing.

Work - R&D electronics: 10.00 Time - Hours due Feb. 29, 2020

Work on the electronic system of the device

Unassigned
Work events:
Feb. 19, 2020 4.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Created a small board, dressing up the pressure sensor with some caps and resistors. Tested sensor with Arduino Uno.
Caps are for having a more clean signal and resistors used as a voltage divider, to bring the signal from 0.-5V to 0-3.3V (sensor operates at 5V and microcontroller board, Adafruit Feather at 3.3 Volt. )
Documented in the main R&D doc

Feb. 12, 2020 1.00 Time - Hours Done by Tibi

Connected my computer running Linux Ubuntu to the Adafruit Feather. Had some problems uploading sketches to the Feather using the Arduino ADI. Took me some time to figure it out, using the help page from Adafruit. Nos I am able to upload sketches to the microcontroller.
