Description of Meeting
Presentation-1: Temperature measurement and heat flow overview. Good temperature measurement is more difficult than it seems. Discussion of various techniques and selecting measurement system and stages of a project, with examples related to temperature measurement.
Presentation-2: Quality temperature measurement using a good thermistor in an embedded system. Description of system, accuracy considerations and linearisation using software.
General discussion time: Question & Answers, News (new products, purchases, projects), Introduce a component, technique, tip, etc, Tea/coffee break/chat.
Description of Group
Our group is for people to develop microcontroller projects (including the software-programming) – gadgets for fun and more serious purposes. We make machines, using microcontrollers, and other electronics, to do things. We cater for all levels of knowledge, novice to experienced - users helping users. We are a sub-group of Melbourne PC User Group, and we model our sub-group along the style of makerspace.com.
Our monthly Wednesday meetings involve discussion and presentations.
Our associated Saturday Workshops are informal and hands-on – bring-your-own project/stuff. The Saturday Workshops are a "Maker Space". They are a space to express your creativity, build your own stuff, and investigate ideas. The activities depend on those who are involved and their interests. If you are looking for a space that facilitates sharing of ideas and support, this could be it. (We have some electronic equipment that many starting hobbyists may not, e.g. oscilloscopes etc.) The Workshops are an informal group, a place to work on your project, start a new project, or join a group project.
If you are new to this: microcontrollers are small cheap computer-chips with measurement or sense inputs (e.g. temperature, door-open) and control outputs (e.g. displays, motor control), i.e. all combinations of analog & digital, inputs & outputs. They need very few other components to function, and are in many products (e.g. cameras, cars, toys).
