Assisted Saber Astronautics flight test the "DragEN" tether deployment mechansim with NASA's flight opportunities program. DragEN is designed to address the growing threat of space junk by un-rolling a conductive tether which uses the magnetic field of the Earth to gently drag a dead satellite back into the atmosphere allowing it to burn up safely at the end of its life. The experiements were conducted on a modified boeing 727 out of Ellington Field Houston Tx, with each flight comprising 40 parabolas of approximately 20-30s of zero gravity each.
In order to showcase the work of Doctors at the Harry Perkins Medical Research Institute. A dual screen interactive exhibit was designed to demonstrate research being undertaken at various regions of the human body. Each screen contained a PID controlled 24VDC motor with optical encoder feedback. Dual light curtains and over current shutoff in the event that an obstical was encountered.
Using a combination of industrial PLC controllers and pneumatic actuators and valves to automate the packaging of paper hand towels for an Australian manufacturer. Our solution reduced labour requirements by 66% whilst increasing production yields by 50%.
Designed to track human movements within a building and generate real time alerts via SMS and email when an elderly person falls.
A car crash simulator was designed for the NRMA car crash showroom. The simulator combined hydrualic actuation of the suspension of a car while the user was seated inside wearing an Oculus Rift headset. The experience combined tactile motion of the vehicle with visual and audio feedback being provided by the Oculus Rift. This exhibit won "Best in show" at the 2014 Sydney Royal Easter show where it was also showcased.
The Ivy nightclub in Sydney wanted a unique exhibit for their Saturday night Pascha event. We designed and implemented the electronics and control system for the "Pascha Ball" which comprised five linear actuated petals, smoke machine with strobe and LED strip lighting. The entire ball was remote controlled and timed to the Pascha event.
