Its been a busy week for Team Tocotronics. While struggling to stay warm in the polar vortex’s second strike, the team was hard at work preparing for the presentation of our first prototype. In the lab, the team practiced contracting and relaxing muscles while hooked up to electrodes to find the best way to process the signal from the electrodes into meaningful data.
Outside of the lab, the team worked on allowing Arduino boards to communicate with an Android device. We were successful in allowing data to flow between the Arduino and the Android.
While we still have our work cut out for us for the rest of the semester, we’re really excited about what we’ve accomplished so far.
Pictures soon to come
