Thanks to my undergraduate major (computer engineering) and lifelong impact from my dad, I have a chance to learn hardware knowledge/circuit design. This is a unique experience/add-on for people who deal with software day and night. I treat this as one of my hobbies rather than skills. And fortunately, I have successfully applied my knowledge in prior course projects/research.
Our senior design project, “Intelligent Eye”, uses binocular vision to achieve human detection and autonomous navigation. As one of the requirements, we have to build our own PCB from scratch. Following are schematic and actual PCB. Most of the components are soldered by ourselves. If you are interested, please check our video and project website.
