satdat-We created a website that displays data gathered from an Android phone representing real sensors on a conceptual CubeSat, bringing live-feed data out from the satellite every 10 seconds. We utilize multiple sensors including a gyroscope, an accelerometer, a barometer, a Infrared non-contact proximity sensor, a infrared thermometer, and a photosensor (RGB) to record accurate measurements about the cosmos and provide it to hobbyists around the world.
This project is solving the Sensor Yourself challenge. Description
Our project aims to make data from space more accessible to the public. We use multiple sensors to record data about the satellite's status and upload this data to a website, which hobbyists around the world can utilize. The collected data is similar to the data gathered by actual scientists that is then utilized to make informed decisions on keeping the satellite in a stable condition. Onboard the satellite will be a microprocessor that measures information collected from the multiple sensors, additionally including a data transmitter to upload real-time online. This allows people to get an introduction in astronomy and space exploration, and for people already familiar with these fields to get a better sense of real hands-on experience of how CubeSats function.
