This PCB project is a part of a bigger group (EEMK) project that is called Model Sattalite.
The goal of this project is to measure, log and send the data from a flying shuttle with fullduplex comminication and monitoring everything using a self made (UI) user interface.
There are so many capabilities that this curcuit can achive when coded accordingly but the current algorithm of the project is that a shuttle will be flown above the ground 700 meters with a drone and droped down. During falling the shuttle will start to measure, log and send data (GPS, time, fall speed, yaw,pitch,roll, turn count, temparature, pressure, live video, and indicator of recieving any data from UI,RPM of the propeller) and all the data will be monitered in UI. After reaching 600 meters a parachute will be launched on top of the shuttle and it will continue the sending of the data. After 400 meters the shuttle will be spliting it self for and keep floating with a PID controllable coaxial propeller system and keep on falling and sending the data to UI.
As I said the algorithm can change in to every application where a system for data measuring, logging and sending needed.
These are some of the videos for the project covering PCB design and assembly, physical design and UI while running the algorithm.
The words that can be seen are in Turkish but I think the videos alone are understandable other wise I am more than capable of explaining every detail about UI, PCB and physical matters.
