Successful readings on the HyperRail!

Author: Lars Larson

Great progress today Рwe got CO2, lux, temp, and humidity to transmit to the hub while the HyperRail moved the sensor package in specified increments. Video posted below.

The HyperRail GUI now allows for specification of the travel length, speed, and distance between stops. When the sensors get to each new location, the hub tells which sensors to take readings. Once the readings are complete and the hub receives the data, it moves the package down the rail to the next sensing location.

Next, we’ll add a box to the GUI that allows the user to select which sensors to take readings from, without having to hard-code it. Also, the user will be able to select the time interval between runs down the rail and make it automatically loop throughout the day.
