Team Bravo Squad- Progress Report for Prototype II: Emergi-Text (4/17/13)

Goals for the week: 4/17/13

Our goals for this week are to finish our box for the Emergi-Text device.  Construction for a box has been started and needs to be completed. A larger button needs to be built for easier access of use.

For the program being used for our device, there needs to be some debugging for the battery disconnect application. When power is lost for the device, the Emergi-Text app should automatically turn on and send out a text to a friend for family member.

Meeting times/dates

Tuesday 1pm – 2pm 

Thursday 11am to 12pm

Individual Hours:

Bryan 1 hours soldering wires together

Tanner 1 to 2 hours debugging programs for the Emergi-Text app. Tanner worked on the program for the power disconnect and continues to fix any problems the program might have.

Danny 1 to 2 hours finishing contacts list for program. Programing the contact list into Emergi-Text app on device.

Ryan 1 to 2 hours designing and building a box for device

What we did:

  • Soldering wires together
  • Soldering wires to circuit board
  • Cut materials for box
  • Finished button setup for device
  • Power disconnect program
  • Emergi-Text contact list was programmed into app
  • Debugging for button program

What we didn’t do:

 

Where we are stuck:

For some reason our Emergi-Text app will work fine when the button is pushed, however when there is a power disconnect to replicated a dead battery the app on our system will crash. Further inspection of this issue is in progress and should be fixed by Monday.

What we didn’t do:

Bryan could not get any solder to stick to the pin being used to plug into the phone. The pin is made of a stainless steel and the silver solder will not hold.
