Please come and see what our SUPER interns have been working on this summer!
Wednesday August 8, 2012
1:00 - 3:30 p.m.
EOL Atrium (FL1-2198)
1:00 – 1:05 Introduction – Nick Potts, EOL SUPER Internship Coordinator
1:05 – 1:25 Serializer
Kaisar Ali, University of Maryland College Park
Abstract: This job involves designing and building an interface between a sonic anemometer, an analog device and the ISFS data system. The sonic sends binary serial messages at a rate of 60messages/second. At the beginning of each record a sample must be taken from the analog device, scaled and an ascii representation attached to the end of the sonic message as it is forwarded to the data system. Output will be optional between two choices: serial RS232 or a Bluetooth radio module.
1:25 – 1:45 Field-Catalog Monitoring with Nagios
Devin Brown, Metropolitan State University of Denver
Abstract: The project, Field-Catalog Monitoring with Nagios, focuses on developing a robust Ruby backend for use with the Nagios IT Infrastructure Monitoring Platform. This includes the creation of an automated and configurable system that checks incoming data streams for potential ingestion issues, and ultimately allows for a timely response with detailed notifications.
1:45 – 2:05 Remote Control of Field Aircraft Instrumentation
Stephanie Fawaz, Harvey Mudd College
Abstract: Rather than board a cramped aircraft flying through all kinds of weather conditions to monitor and control instruments on the plane, clients can send commands and receive status updates from the ground about their instrument instead. This is done using a secure, encrypted TCP connection between a proxy client and the ground server and UDP datagrams sent from the ground server to the aircraft.
2:05 – 2:25 Building a UI for Easier Lidar Data Access
Taylor Hall, University of Colorado at Boulder
Abstract: Creating a graphic interface to allow for easier access to graphs of data collected by HSRL for those unfamiliar with the command-line interface.
2:25 – 2:45 Bluetooth Networking on Embedded Systems
Andrew Nelson, Colorado School of MinesAbstract: This project focuses on wirelessly connecting Linux based data systems using Bluetooth networking. This is done over long ranges (up to 1 Kilometer) with multiple data systems connecting to one central hub. This Bluetooth network is intended to replace either a wired network or a standard Wi-Fi wireless network.
2:45 - 3:30 Refreshments and casual chat with SUPER interns
