Sun-Tracking Solar Panel System

Our project was to implement a system of light reflectors that autonomously track the sun’s position and focus the light on a solar panel to maximize the incident light intensity and hence more power capture. The system was to be significantly cheap compared to buying multiple solar panels and capture more than double the solar power than using an ordinary solar panel.

AI Chess Board

Our senior design project is implementing an AI chess board. It uses Python and the popular chess engine Stockfish on a Raspberry Pi to show the user with LEDs where the computer would like to make its move. Our project was a success and could be used as a beginning step to make a more complex and intuitive chess board that plays chess against a user.

Retriever Robot

The original intention was to make a robot that would retrieve tennis balls. The focus has now been switched to make a realistic robot simulator that can navigate to waypoints, which would be provided by tennis ball locations. OpenCV is used for tennis ball recognition to provide locations for the simulated robot to navigate to.
