Pebble is a smartwatch that talks over Bluetooth to an Android or iOS device. Its basic function is to display notifications forwarded by the device on the watch face. In this mini-project, we shall use the Pebble to send commands over Bluetooth to an Android device which shall then talk to a Raspberry Pi Controller mounted on a bot over a socket and control the bot’s movements. The Android App shall be provided to you. Follow this tutorial to first create a WatchApp and then establish communication with the PiBot.
Kinect for Windows is a sensing device that includes am RGB camera, an Infrared emitter and depth sensor, a multi-array microphone and a 3-axis accelerometer. It helps a user interact with the computer through gestures and audio. In this lab, our aim is to use the Kinect Skeletal Tracking demo and modify it to implement an Air-drumming application.
