Project SCILA (Sensors Control Integrated For Lives Of Astronauts) is a prototype that allows important information such as radiation, temperature, or the accelerated motion of an oncoming object ... and inform to astronaut in real time.

This project is solving the Sensor Yourself challenge.

Description

Project SCILA (Sensors Control Integrated For Lives Of Astronauts) is a prototype that allows important information such as radiation, temperature, or the accelerated motion of an oncoming object ... and inform to astronaut in real time. Using ArduSat Project, with the following parts: - An Arduino Board. - Spectrometer. - UHF Transceiver. - Flight Control Computer. - Electrical Power Supply. - Solar Panels. - Structure. We added the following parts for our first prototype for astronauts: A dome. Five Sensors Lidar Lite with Five servomotors that can work together With the cams and make an exactly detection of an oncoming object. The Servos works with te sensor Lidar Lite and the cams like a pointer and follow the object with an exactly information of: altitude, longitude, time of aproximation, size, distance rotating 360º and 240º above. Five Infrared cameras that can make the mapping and take temperature. A Hardware/Software that could be: a handheld device known as (Smart Watch), we make one with a mini Lcd Display for arduino with shield and we did an interfaz with multiple menu. Or a mobile app that can reports the information from SCILA to astronaut in real time. The Prototype could be rotating around The International Space Station providing important information for astronauts (this process could be successful using Low Earth orbit (LEO) or an Artificial Orbits around The International Space Station that contain SCILA). This is a Prototype idea we created specially for members onboard a space station or other spacecraft but the Sensored detection devices can be useful on Earth for use in situations of diminished visibility or with wheelchairs and walking canes working in 360º and 240º with a mini device created by us. The Final Prototype is a Mini Sphere (about 4 inches diameter) based on NASA’s SPHERES program to inform users in real time with a handheld device or a mobile app. Could be located Up Helmet or in a remotely place communicated via WiFi (later we´re going to focus on this). The final prototype it´s located in the link below: FINAL PROTOTYPE. For this project, we used four Infrared Cameras and four Proximity Sensors LIDAR Lite with an elegant Design. Parts of SCILA PROTOTYPE FINAL are: - An Arduino Uno (specially because it is small). - UHF Transceiver (NanoCom u482C). - Flight Control Computer (NanoMind A712C, GOMSpace). - Electrical Power Supply (NanoPower P31U, GOMSpace). - 4 Proximity Sensors LIDAR LITE (with a range detection of 40 meters). - 4 Infrared Cameras for temperature and other functions. - Led lights for power on/off buttons. - The Sphere Structure. - SCILA Support.
