We started this project late because our initial idea didn't work out well. However we were able to complete this in time so we are in overall satisfied with the results and proud with this project. In overall, this project is rewarding and a great educational experience as we are able to put our knowledge into use to construct a useful product that has a great application.


Ethical Considerations

1. To accept responsibility in making engineering decisions consistent with the safety, health and welfare of the public, and to disclose promptly factors that might endanger the public or the environment.

2. To seek, accept, and offer honest criticism of technical work, to acknowledge and correct errors, and to credit properly the contributions of others.

3. To avoid injuring others, their property, reputation, or employment by false or malicious action.

4. To improve the understanding of technology, its appropriate application, and potential consequences.

5. To assist colleagues and co-workers in their professional development and to support them in following this code of ethics.


Legal Considerations

Regarding the FCC legal compliance, our project uses RF communications that comply with the FCC procedures for Part 15 of Transmitters. We operate at a frequency of 433 MHz which is within the limits of the FCC. Furthermore, we transmitted only when needed as not to interfere with other groups. Also, we comply to the best possible ways to the FCC regulations.



We would like to thank Professor Bruce Land, all the 476 TAs and all the staff members for helping us in all ways and keeping the lab opened. We would also like to thank companies such as Atmel, Analog Devices, Freescale Semiconductors, Maxim-IC, and Radiotronix for providing us with the components and the free samples for our project.
