    • TEAM AMIGOS Shawn Burrington - 5th year Computer Engineering Technology Student – Class 2012 Caleb Herbst - 5th year Computer Engineering Technology Student – Class 2012
    • YOUTUBE VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf2r6TL0iQQ
    • PRODUCT VISION CONTINUED Create an interactive office manager Provides a means for individuals to schedule appointments without having to directly contact the office owner Mounts to the outside of any office
    • PRODUCT OWNER Argos Semitech CEO – Dr. Antonio Mondragon
    • TARGET AUDIENCE Any office setting Particularly professors at universities
    • GENERAL DESCRIPTION Individuals can make appointments with office owners through this Interactive Office Scheduler made by Argos Semitech Will also display the current status of office owner(available, away, out to lunch… etc.) Can be updated weekly
    • CONTRIBUTION AND DIFFERENTIATION Demo projects from Terasic was the starting point Modified SOPC and Verilog entities All C-code manipulating the display and handling touch-sense is custom using pre- existing Terasic and Altera basic libraries
    • RETROSPECTIVE – ORIGINAL GOALS Create an office schedule and editor application Equip with webcam to verify appointment Use an external monitor with the DE-2 and a LCD touch screen.
    • PLANNING SUMMARY Unfortunately a projects lifecycle never goes as planned Ran into a few road blocks that required change in our project plan With scheduling conflicts and the progress we made each week the Microsoft Project plan ended up becoming useless
    • PLANNING SUMMARY CONTINUED Followed an agile project management methodology Bi-weekly sprints that produced a working product at the end of each sprint This approach helped in overcoming roadblocks and gave us flexibility when working on tasks
    • ROADBLOCKS Unable to output a resolution high enough that didn’t look pixelated using DE2 w/ monitor Decided to switch to the Terasic TPAD which uses a DE-115 and came assembled with a touch screen Stability Issues Verilog Implementation Time
    • WHAT WE LEARNED Overall the project was an enjoyable experience for the both of us It was fun to manage ourselves and watch the project grow each week Communication is important
    • TO FUTURE ESD’ERS Start early Keep the goals in mind Remember what your trying to achieve and manage your time accordingly
    • IF WE HAD TO DO IT AGAIN….. Would have started with the TPAD off the bat Did a better job documenting the project as we worked on it, instead of assembling majority of the documentation at the end of the quarter
    • FUTURE WORK Integrate the webcam Connect to a web server for automatic updating Proximity sensing to save power SD-card implementation
    • SPECIAL THANKS Dr Antonio Mondragon All the faculty and staff that made our last 5 years memorable
