Resurrecting an old clock

By mvuilleu, in DIY and Internet of Things, august 22,2014.

Somewhere in the middle of rural Germany, there is an old mansion with a front clock, which used to chime the hours once upon a time. It's an old and tired mechanical clock, which was probably never very accurate and which now sometimes stops. As it's not possible to set it to time manually (it doesn't have a free wheel system), it was condemned to a standstill. Until last week, when, with the help of a few Yoctopuce modules, we built a pacemaker for it...

Record the lean angle of a motorbike

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Measures, august 14,2014.

In a motorbike race, the most spectacular is the way drivers lean their motorbikes in curves. Television channels often broadcast videos of on-board cameras and inlay the highest angle reached. For Grand Prix, this information is retrieved by telemetry and broadcasted in real time. But is it possible to produce a video of the same type (but not in real time) using a Yocto-3D and a GoPro?

Launching a model rocket without Raspberry Pi

Not long ago, we came across this post explaining how to launch a model rocket from a smartphone by using a Raspberry Pi, a WiFi dongle, a relay board, and a pocket WiFi router. We wondered if we could make it simpler by using Yoctopuce modules. Moreover, we couldn't pass a reason to play with model rockets :-)

A USB driven turntable

By martinm, in DIY and Measures, july 25,2014.

A while ago, we were challenged to build a motorized turntable of the kind used by photographers to take pictures of objects from all angles. The idea was obviously to control the position of the table with Yoctopuce modules. It was a rather ambitious project as there was more mechanics than electronics in it, but we nevertheless took up the challenge...
