My conquests with Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Time spent tinkering is time well spent 😀
This is the area where I’ll be primarily posting about the things I’m learning about in the domain of Wireless Sensor Networks using TinyOS. I’m working alongside two close friends Laksh Bhatia and Sachin from college on development of a protocol stack for condition based maintenance in pipelines. As of now, we’re learning things step by step, primarily on UC Berkeley’s TelosB motes.
We started of with setting up TinyOS, then moved on to communicating between two motes, then small grids, getting console prints through serial communication etc. As of now, the latest thing we’re working on is implementing sleep wake TDM on a square 16 mote static grid. We’ll soon start posting detailed “walk-through”s, of sorts, of the entire journey and hope we can help people who’re just venturing into this field save themselves some time and frustration 🙂
My journey as a photographer. I started with a Sony NEX 5K with an 18-55mm kit lens and a SLIK Compact II Tripod. After 2 years of learning on that, I recently added a Nikon D5100 with 18-105mm kit and prime 50mm f/1.8 lenses and a BENRO T880-EX Tripod.
I mainly like landscape and concert photography. I’m currently working on portrait and macro. I like to try out new techniques like light painting, reverse lens macro, astro-photography etc. and am on the constant lookout for inspiration.
This is one of the songs I performed in at the Music Night in early 2013
So, I finally managed to motivate myself enough to get on with this blog. Stuff you can expect to see here regularly-
- Arduino, Raspberry Pi related hacks
- Regular posts related to an academic Wireless Sensor Networks project on UC-Berkeley’s TelosB motes using TinyOS
- Photographs to show new techniques of photography that I’m trying or some of my old work
- Drum Covers of some songs or hopefully some original compositions in the future
I seriously hope I get better at this along the way. It’ll be cool if the work I put up here helps some lost soul scouring the internet for a solution to some weird technical roadblock. It might just also be a source of some amusement to some shutterbug or wannabe-drummer.
I really don’t know how regular or how interesting I’ll be able to make this blog (I feel I’m really rusty in terms of writing) . If you’re reading this, do leave constructive criticism or stuff you would want me to talk about related to these fields.
Until the next post… 🙂
May the force be with you.
