        my id :aalfeen_shahbaz@yahoo.com
        sir can you give your time to me….?
        i need your help…..i want to ask about voice recognition kit using hm2007…

  2. Sapna Says:

    hey….there is good news and there is bad news….the good news is that if we complete this project in time and in satisfaction of mani sir..then guess wat…he wud sponser the whole project….but sadly the bad news is that..we felt we din do our best..which is a good thing in a way…he told us..to change the h bridge and motor and use a chinese motor instead…..then he told us tohave a better idea of the working and finalise the the entire working of the project…he also asked us id the voice rec could be in mallu or not….hehehehe…..well..now i realise it be done….hope we get to doit to our complete satisfaction….god help us…

  3. Sapna Says:

    suggestions given …voltage controlling module should be included….two motors should be drawn on the block diagram…change rec to recognition…..chinese motors…

  7. tintu Says:

    hay..everyone…when do v start wid the search for the compoenets?

  8. NISHA Says:

    Tintu,
    Well…as of now as u know we proceed with PIC 16F877 as the MC, and HM2007 speech, We have PIC and we will order HM2007 tmrw..Rest we will fix after discsn with each other , like how we discusd today..
    NISHAM>S

  9. NISHA Says:

    Dear All,
    Its glad to see we are going in an organised way, hope we will be able to maintain the discipline throughout..
    So I suppose we must have our next meeting on monday(still very sorry to say u all have to travel up to my home since may not make it)sometime, so that we can have some discusion abt present status or can fix rest of the componets…
    NISHAM>S>

  10. techtriks Says:

    Friends…
    Sveral PIC tutorials site links are provided in our REFERENCE page, please have a luk at..especially Prinyanka, i hope it will be very helpful to u….
    All the best..
    NISHAM>S>

  11. techtriks Says:

    Friends…
    The ppt is uploaded in the site with the correction as per Mani Sir’s suggestions, like detailed block diagram…Please chk it..if some corrections required pls inform all…
    NISHAM>S>

  12. Priya Says:

    hey all….this is such a neat way of intimating everyone on how each one’s part in the project is progressing…..thanks for the tutorials nisha…..great links by the way…..regarding the motor, do we look for a hub motor or a dc brushless motor?…..

  13. senthil Says:

    hey guys…abt the wheelchair..there is work shop in toll….if we tell him what type of wheel chair we want then he will make it for us within a week….what say??

  14. NISHA Says:

    Well…
    Its gud that all are updating their progress…, Hope we will be able keep this spirit till the end.
    hay Priyanka, i was trying to contact Mani Sir today,but could not connect..We will be able make a final decision about motor and driver ckt after discussing with him..Still dont stop searching..let us explore all possibilities and from that the best one we can opt after discussing with Mani Sir..
    And Senthil, Its great to know that we have such an option to make our own design..But before taking that step we must discuss with Rajesh Sir too…Before that we must find out how reliable and professional those workshope ppl are and so many other aspects too…So please collect max. data from them before we go for such a discussion with Rajesh Sir and ManiSir..Hope u will be able to get it within a day or two…

  15. senthil Says:

    hey guys…make the calculations fast so that we can know the specifications of the motor…i can get brushless motor from my sis…she will be there in china for 2 more weeks..

  16. NISHA Says:

    We will discuss it with Mani Sir and Rajesh Sir tomrrow abt the motor and control ckt and will decide it tomorrow itself…
    Hope Sapna read that references throughly and we will b able to make the exact electrical specs by tmrw…

  17. deepak Jaison Says:

    Hey nice site guys…..
    and good interaction..
    senthil uses the net??? interesting…lol
    anyy all the best..
    when u make the chair make sure…you make a chair which has a seating capacity of 100 kgs..
    i want to test drive it.. 🙂

  18. techtriks Says:

    Thanks for ur sugstn Deepak..We are anyway planning to make a fully working model and wish to do the power calculations with different loads..So surely U need to sit in the chair…Its from that only we can say how efficent out wheelchair….
    NISHAM>S>

  19. sapna Says:

    hey all..did the calcutaltions..getting for up lsope and rolling..but the obstacle hdight im getting 1500W is that a big value will the motor be too big then?
    nextly..i read up on HM2007…..well it requires an 6264 SRAM 8kb memory externally to store thevalues..also a special keypad is required..wat dow e do abt that?
    thirdly i was planning toa sk rajesh sir to teach me a lil regarding teh ttraining of teh ic….most of it is there in the datdtsheet however it is always bnetter to ask sir abt such things na…wat say..regarding the workshop wheelchair..i think it will be much cheaper thatw ay…..
    and deepak..dont worry….we will keep ur weight in mind…

  20. techtriks Says:

    Sapna, Let us have a group discussion on those calculation at the earliest , if possible tomorrow itself..
    Then abt HM2007 we need external RAM..that i didnt tell u since i wanted all of u to find it out…Its with me and we can even get it here on low cost.I made the ckt with that last time for a project… U study it well, we can have a discusn ..its gud to ask Rajesh sir for more clarification….
    Yah,,It may be cheaper but we must cross chk it before fixing it..
    Hope to meet all of u tmrw..
    NISHAM>S>

  21. tintu Says:

    hey guys… this is going gud… not bad at all… cudt check the site yest.. so after todays discussion.. we ll hev to keep the final abstract by friday.. 22nd.. so hopefully vll finifh it off by thursady… and i ahev got the basic circiut of the battery charger .. now haev to maek more modifications on it..

  22. techtriks Says:

    Well, Its gud to see things going smooth..Sapna please upload the calculations abt power ratings we made today, and also mail me the first abstract..Hope with these data we will be able to discuss with Mani Sir atleast by tomorrow.
    Senthil, please update ur parts…(Senthil Absent in today’s discussion-15/01/07)…
    Tintu, gud work, hope we will have a discussion abt charger soon…
    Some more links are added for reference ..please go through…

    NISHAM>S>

  23. techtriks Says:

    Dear All, Senthil doing great work…He got a wheelchair free of cost from a poor home nearby his home town..Its really a great effort and i feel we must return it to the poor home inmates after automating it..That will be the best way to thank them for their help…
    1) So by this we have finished what we are suppose to finsh before 15th(the time line we put/refer earlier messages).
    2) Then Sapna Please upload the calculations we made yesterday.
    3)Tintu gave the feedback that she is working on a battery carger ckt and i feel she is going in the right way…
    4) Priyanka putting immense effort to catch up PIC…
    So friends, these are the updates, when we cross our first dead line. And as the group leader i just dont want to hide my pleasure and statisfaction so far working in this gud team…Hope we will keep the spirit high throughout our venture…

  24. senthil Says:

    hey guys..soryy that i couldnt attend the discussion(first n last time)..the thing is i was behind the wheel chair…and guess what….got a wheel chair..free of cost and i have mailed it to nishas place..it will be there within 2 days…i saw the wheel chair..its in good condition..we just need to fill air in the tyres thats all..and for u deepak…(enthada eniku net upayogikan padille).. :->

  25. Priya Says:

    hey everyone…..wonderful way of discussing we got goin out here….am in the processs of studyin Pic programmin……so far so good…kudos to u senthil….now we have our basic wheelchair……..ur idea of givin back the wheelchair to the poor home is very sweet and considerate of you nisha….lets do that….

  26. senthil Says:

    hey priya..when u come to class bring pic tutorial with u..i will take photocopy and will give it to u..before 24th we both will write the program…ok??

  27. Priya Says:

    okies senthil…..will bring it tomorrow k….

    Dear All,
    We need to finish our revised abtract for submitting on friday. At the same time we mut finish our Algorithm so soon(Dead line was on friday)..Sapna, this is the 4th time i have been reminding u about uploading claculations that we made on last meeting..
    I think we must meet tomorrow for discussing about all these..
    NISHAMS

  29. tintu Says:

    hey,people… i have been reading up on the battery charger . got the basic circiut now cheking up on short circuit protection.. and about the deatiled abstact to be kept on friday.. i have enquired about it.. we need a 2 page detailed write up with the block diagram explanation.. and the specifications. after giving the detailed abstarct we wont b able to change the design. but since we have t fixed up on the motors. i ll ask jibi miss bout it and let u know..

    and ey yes we have kept a meeting tomo. so everyone be there.

  30. tintu Says:

    and im very impressed to know that the hits on the right side of the page refers to the number of people to visit the site.. i dint knwo that.. hehe.. and fromt his feedback.. bout the height.. nisha wat do u have to say? i dont think v checked on the height while we thought of the project.. is it necessary?

  31. techtriks Says:

    Yes Tintu, We dont have a plan to make so much of alteration in the wheelchair structure now..But thats a very good siuggestion We can think of it after successfully completing what all we have already planned to do…I think that will be better..NISHAM.S.

  51. tintu Says:

    hey ppl… im happy to see everyone s bak on track and sap also soon.. hey sap if u checking the site u can do a lot of work..even though u not present here..

    and todayi did some work on finding out the availabiliy of motors.. called up few comapnies here in krala. but couldt find any whch sold dc brushless motors.. have enqiured in china too.. hopefully in a few days v can get the right information.now have a few more work to do.got to mail them and find out.

    studied the hm2007.so tomo v shall start of wid the circuit.

    so by this weekend we shud b finishing off with this.and simultaneolsy the motor section too..

  54. techtriks Says:

    SENTHIL: someone plz reply how to maximize the circuit???
    TINTU: senthil go to the site.click on the pic..or if ur online i yahoo ill send u a link now
    NISHAMS: Senthil,Just clik on the figure. that will come..
    SENTHIL: its ok…clicked evry where but no use…its ok no problems…

  55. techtriks Says:

    Dear Friends,
    Senthil Please get the Key pad, 0.0047mF capa(10 numbers) by tomorrow noon. Priyanka informed she will be able to reach at 3pm only. So, we will start doing the ckt then but before that we can have make the weekly report, flowchart etc. etc.. So fix a time..
    NISHAMS

  56. Priya Says:

    hey all……today was one fruitful day…..all of us were wonderfully on time….we had no disturbances n hinderances while we worked…..it was totally great….we mangaed to design the voice recognition circuit and study its working and pin diagram….we discussed about the SRAM WE’D BE USIN with the woice recognition IC….HM6264 IS what we’ve decided upon n we went through the data sheet and studied that as well….way to go team!….and then we even started workin on the keypad but since we dont need the keypad at the final stage we decided to buy a keypad and use it for the timebeing….we learnt how to train the IC……boy we did learn a lot didnt we….and in the afternoon we sat together and discussed the logic and drew the rough flow chart for our project software section….that was really interestin coz with nisha’s broken leg we had her actually sit on the wheelchair and move it herself so that we could correctly determine what commands to keep in mind while trainin the IC….in short today was one eventful day….keep the pace goin team!….cheerio

  57. Priya Says:

    i have to go for a prayer urgently tomorrow so i asked nisha if we could all meet up at 3……didnt want to miss out on our discussions and i didnt want to miss out on the prayer as well….after all we need God’s blessings right….so lets please make it at 3 k…..thanx a lot you guys….

  58. senthil Says:

    nisha,
    i have sent u the flow chart…did u get it??

  59. tintu Says:

    nisha. have u uploaded the flow chart?

  60. Priya Says:

    hey all….we successfully finished the flow chart today…..good luck in the search for the dc brushless motor….gonna do my part of the searchin now so adios…..

  61. Priya Says:

    here are some links….
    http://www.hansen-motor.com/dcindex.html
    this has got descriptions of dc gear motors…

    this next one is an international site…think the rpm is too high….

  62. tintu Says:

    hey ppl.. had gone to rony electronics to check for he components. but unfortunately the shops are closed.wil go n get it tomo. wel today we fixed on the flow chart.now the programming part is left.
    by tomo we ll get the keypad. and we can start on.hope evryone wil b present by then.anyways ppl keep working…

  63. techtriks Says:

    Everyone,
    Its true that we could sit together and discuss things…But at this point i would like to say one more thing we must keep the presence of mind throughout the venture. Its not a simple task..We need to do so much of things, i hope by now all are aware abt it…
    I agree everying trying best…So be in the part of the team always…Dont get demotivated occationally when we poit out mistakes..It hapens..But we must learn from the mistakes…
    So perform ur best .

    NB: Received the Flow chart which senthil Made..correction there..and with the correction we discusd, i will upload it by morning…
    NISHAMS

  64. techtriks Says:

    ….Uploaded complete programming alogorithm- Flow chart. SOFTWARE page. Pls go through it..If anyone finds difficulty please discuss with each other…

    Hello Everyone
    ..And i had a fruitful discussion with Ajeesh Sir in the evening. He suggested to collect the information about project(It was a joystick controlled wheelchair, evnthough there is little similarity in the electronic part the driving mechanism they employed is differential) done by our super seniors(Bio Med). Its a gud suggestion.
    Please check that wheelchair as early as possible after discusing with Jibi miss or Rajesh sir.. Then if the BioMedical Dept. Pemits we can take those motors if its in the working condition. And i also feel its gud to go through their report too..So Priyanka took that responsibility and she will chk it in the library. From all those we can know what all problems they have faced, how did they solved it etc. etc…NISHAMS

  65. Priya Says:

    hey all,
    i gave the specifications of the dc motor n gearbox we needed to one of my close friends in bangalore n he is lookin all around for it..he said if he comes up with soemthin he will notify me….so keep your fingers crossed….this tuesday am plannin to go n check out the wheelchair project that has been done by mec’s second batch…..hopefully we’ll learn a lot from them…..will get all teh required details n update everyone soon….keep in touch people….adios

  66. techtriks Says:

    ….where are u people????
    Priyanka, whats the feedback from ur friend, who searched the motor?
    Tintu,Got the components u have given to Raman..

    We must start doing the PCB by tomorrow. So i expect everyone tmrw…
    Reply soon…NISHAMS

  67. Priya Says:

    hey …..was in church all day….sunday right….my service is from 9:00am to 5:00pm….called my friend twice n he wasnt pickin up…..thought i’ll try again tomorrow or a little later tonight….will be there at ur place tomorrow mornin…see ya

    hey everyone..back after recharging my own batteries……sorry was not here..will surely make it up to all of u….im really sorry..im here full time now nisha….

  71. Priya Says:

    hey everyone….we successfully wired the voice recognition circuit at nisha’s place today….soon after leavin nisha’s place i did the following
    I contacted ADROIT MOTORS in maharashtra regarding the dc motor they had advertised….they said they have a motor made specifically to drive a wheelchair with a voltage of 24 and 150rpm….
    He took down my contact id and promised to mail me the details of all the dc motors they had in stock that suited our specifications by 11:00 am tomorrow..
    tomorrow i will be going to the biomedical lab as well after obtaining permission from the teachers concerned to check out the motor used in the project done by our super seniors…
    i’ll then go to the library and read up on that project and the motor they used…we might get some useful info from that….
    so thats the itenary for tomorrow…signing off for now….take care

  72. techtriks Says:

    Everyone,
    I am so proud to introduce u the great team work done by our super seniors..
    Pls chk this link..Its the news came in The Hindu daily on March 12th 2002 about the joystick controlled wheelchair done by our seniors..
    http://www.hinduonnet.com/thehindu/lf/2002/03/12/stories/2002031202300200.htm

    Its was really a gud work and if we are successful it will be one more step advanced than what they did, so work hard to keep it….

  73. priya Says:

    nisha why arent u replyin to my mail….

  74. NISHAMS Says:

    Priyanka, I was in the hospital…Reachd home just now..I have seen ur msgs from Nithasha’s mob.. I rung u too…I havent received any reply from that Maharastra compnay, i think we must ring them once again..
    Hope to see u in the evening..
    NISHAMS

  75. tintu Says:

    hey ppl… couldt do much today i guess.but by tomo v shud finish the voice recognition trainig. v don want to lag behind. so lets make things better and earlier..
    checked the wheelchair done by biomedicals.. but i don think its of any use to us. it looks very rusted. but v can always check it again also the report is missing from the lib so have asked them to make the necessary arragements…

  76. NISHAMS Says:

    Friends,
    I had a discusn with Rajesh Sir,he will enquire abt the biomed wheelchair to the the biomed faculties. But u ppl pls meet him tmrw and remind him.

    Tomorrow we must finish the Keypad PCB atlest..
    ..and i feel we must select a treasurer.Its very difficult for me to keep the records always..

    NB: Have a small request:- pls try to replace the tools or components in the proper place before all leave from here. Its becoz at present i have no otherway to rearrange and finds difficulty in moving around….

  77. Priya Says:

    hey all….i’d contacted adroit systems in maharashtra again today…..they’d mailed me the details of the dc motor they had with a diagram…..hope u saw the diagram nisha and the specifications indicated below it…i’d downloaded it for you jus before leaving ur place…..he says the cost of one motor is 4200Rs including the transportation charges…

  78. sapna Says:

    hey everyone…the velocity max required by nisha was said to be 9kmph…if we convert that its 2.5 mps..thats why i took calcultaions as 2 mps….cant see wats wrong after that….shud i take 3 mps…?

  79. sapna Says:

    yest we were figuring out teh dtmf keypad….and since it was not in a good condition we had decided to make a keypad…hey does anyone have an unused mobile….we can take its keypad..no extra buttons also na for 3310….wat do u say

  80. NISHAMS Says:

    Friends,
    First of all, Priyanka is it possible to get more clarification from those Adroit abt the coupling mechanisms, i mean will they provide some or we must design and which kind of motor it is, Just Dc or BLDC..Please clarify it..

    Then Sapna, calculations we need to discuss once again..Abt key pad , 3310 consists just 3 columns and 3 4 rows only..Still i prefer its better to make our own Keypad, It will b straight forward and no confusion latter too…

    Try to come asap..NISHAMS

  81. sapna Says:

    sorry i cud not come today…had a heavy fever and had to depend on tintu and priya to take me to hospital….a person falling sick in teh middle of project is life…its not the end of teh world….so dont worry….we are way ahead when compared to other groups….and today noone of us cud come…anyways….

  82. tintu Says:

    hey ppl… we ll make the keypad. i think dats a wise dicision. dats more easy n dependable.. so tomo finish off pcb and statrt training k

  83. NISHAMS Says:

    Friends, On reading Sapnas mail I feel to write in detail ..its usual someone geting ill.. If so its required to take rest too.. I was poiting out to Tintu the way evryone approaching the project now. So ppl try to take it in the right sense. When its started or during the intial discusn all were more serious than what is now.
    Then i dont know how can we say we are a way ahead of others!!! To be frank, we havent done anything solid so far..And above all how can we equate with other projects, try to discuss with other groups in the class, a few projects are based on MATLAB, someother, more than 50% software(I agree all of those projects keep standards and so associated difficulties there). But if we analyse our project its clear there is so much of power electronics involved, its not as simple as we think,and if any of the section fails the entire system will collaps!!!..and moreover the mechanical part is something which we really need to put effort. So thinking all these in mind and the way we are moving now its quite slow.
    ..and i think atleast this moment we all must be aware how much work there to be done..So i am just pointing out:
    1. Keypad
    2. Full wiring of HM2007
    3. Traing HM2007(Its not a very simple task
    since it deals with sound )
    4. The motor is yet to decide
    5. The mechanical design is posble only after
    getting a motor in hand
    6. Then implemeting the mechanism in the
    wheelchair ..i.e. coupling the motor to the
    wheel(there we will face so much of
    unexpected problems..)
    7. Motor Driving circuit(Note down it is power
    drive )
    8. Speed and Direction control
    9. Microcontroller Programming
    10.Interfacing voice recognition ckt with the
    microcontroller
    11.Selecting the Battery
    12. Different voltage power Supplies for
    microcontroller/driver ckt/etc etc…
    13. Battery charger circuit
    14. Test Driving the wheelchair without any
    control ckt for chking the mechanical
    coupling.
    15. Interfacing the speech recog. part as well
    as the driver part
    16. Making PCBs of all sections(This includes
    design, printing, soldering etcSince we
    have lowpower and high power sections here,
    lot of things to be taken care of…)
    17. Interfacing the entire cktry with the
    wheeclchair
    18. Avoiding noise or unwanted signals..this
    we will b able to perform after so many
    trial runs…

    Frineds it not just for making u tesd…But as the group leader i think its my responsibility to remind all of u what really we need to do…

    Considering the above description(there is a chance that still i might have skipd some steps!!!),Think, WHERE WE ARE NOW? WHAT ALL REMAINING? HOW MUCH EFFORT WE NEED TO PUT?…

    With Hopes…. NISHAMS

  84. NISHAMS Says:

    .….Keypad PCB Design over. Etching will be done in the morning….
    ….Priyanka, our system clock is correct ; Right?
    NISHAMS..

  85. Priya Says:

    hey everyone…..really sorry that i couldnt come today…..didnt go to college even….something urgent came up…..will come to ur place tomorrow morning itself nisha….is ten okay?…..so that gives u some time to freshen up…..boy we have a lot to do huh……so lets go into full gear tomorrrow onwards…..

  86. Priya Says:

    hey!!!!!….the clock’s workin!!!!…..way to go girl….

  87. sapna Says:

    hey ppl….no probs priya darling we just did keypad today..tomo we train..the juniors wanted to see us train the ic….anyways here are the calculations…i know they are long over due…i was juts lazy to upload them….

    1)rolling resistance
    r=0.51m
    a=1m/s2
    v=9kmph=2mps
    m=100kg
    f=ma+MN
    M=fric coefficient(.02 to .04)
    N=normal reaction(900)
    f=136N
    p=f*v=272W,both motors

    2)upslope
    f=mg sin@ + Mmg cos@
    M=.03
    @=15 degree limiting
    g=10m/s2
    f=287.796N
    p=f*1m/s(upslope velocity is taken less)
    p=287.79W,both motors

  88. sapna Says:

    by the way who si doing wat for ave seminar…apparently we supposed tot ake from teh materilas subm,itted…who has teh photocopy of teh material;s submitted..i needed it also..cos ons aturday we supposed to kick some ass na….

  89. sapna Says:

    one more suggestion..i suggest change teh color of teh font..the grey against grey is kinda difficlut to read…..and also why is there only january calendar…now its feb na…

  90. tintu Says:

    as of now, we haev finished the keypad.. so tomo training.. hey btw i had registered myself on one site to get info about the motor.those ppl had rung me up today.. they said they wil suppy it only to manufacturues.. so i have asked nisha if she can ask her uncle if its ok to register in his name.. hope it l b a positive reply..

  91. tintu Says:

    oh i forgot to share this wid u ppl.. i got this chance doing the etching process of pcb fabrication. turst me i dint know how it was done.. but after doing it.. my its so simple. mayb coz the circuit v did now is somple. hehe.. first the layout is drawn on the board wid permanenet marker. then its dipped in a sloution containg ferric chloride and ho water. its constanly stirred til the copper gets removed. then its wiped wid iso proply alcochol.then the required holes are drilled. then solderin is done .

    u ppl shud try doing it. its intersting

  92. sapna Says:

    i always wanted to do it…i wanted to the design and tracing and stuff…anyways i dont think i can do it..its for artistic ppl…count me out in that area..its for ppl with patience and delicate fingers…u priya and nisha man…..no offense senti darling…..wat abt ave seminar gals…

  93. tintu Says:

    no idea sap.. gaev the papers to mis and dats it.. wil get it tomo or so..

  94. techtriks Says:

    ….as Tintu wrote, etching of the PCB was done in the morning. Tintu was really enjoying while i was assisting her sitting in the wheelchair!!!
    Latter Sapna and Senthil Joined with us for soldering, had a discsn abt the Power calculations…

    I suggest all of u to be present in occations were everyone get something to learn …and that now we have the keypad But it is just the first step and we have miles to go..
    So hope tmrw we will finsh the training of voice recognition chip..So pls b present..

    >Senthil and Priyanka whats d status of PIC learning?
    >Everyone pls go through the calculations Sapna uploaded, its what we fixed in the evening
    >Tintu got some response from a chinees copmpany late tonight. Hope to have a discsn tmrw..
    > Everyone posts their views…Where is senthil?
    > Everyone pls update ur Project notes
    > Sapna, changing is a bit difficult still i will try my best..But U can increase the total font size while reading:-
    In this window, go to top left, click view, then Text Size…then selct LARGEST.

    And i feel within one week we must purchse the motor. Mechanical coupling will be a time consuming job..

    NISHAMS

  95. techtriks Says:

    Friends,
    No news from anyone after u left!!!!
    Today we made the wiring of voice recognition IC with display and Key board for testing…

    Tmrw the training will start…
    Be present…
    Sapna where is the new calculations we made today after the discusn with Mani Sir.??. Please upload it soon…
    I got some respose to motor enquiries..It seems we will get hub motors for our purpose…

    NB:All r requested to update their Project notes….NISHAMS

  96. sapna Says:

    i tried around three hundred times i was getting site not available..i wanted to upload teh calculations and tell u that i lost my purse money and id card in the bus from kaloor to toll..it was afunny exp thankfully..but i was getting site not found..i tried till one o clock last nite..i just woke up…will reach by ten tne thrity k…

  97. sapna Says:

    one more thing…the final value of motor is 60W,around 26 rpm is required…..will post teh calculations tonite…dunno why i cud not get the site yest…i cud get teh wipro site and all my mails but not our site….no problems….

  98. techtriks Says:

    …..Today the training of HM2007 was not so successfull. Hope v we will b able to solve it soon…

    NB: SENTHIL ABSENT TODAY
    Sapna pls upload the calculations

  100. Priya Says:

    hey all…..finally my net is back in action…..halleluyah to that….was feelin suffocated without the net all these days…..read all ur comments now…..got this engineer’s contact number who can help us in gettin a motor…..will be contactin him tomorrow…..PIC learning goin on….a bit slow but am doing it….had an interesting day trying to train the ic….felt kinda sad when all our efforts to train it werent successful….but am sure being such a great team we’ll be able to do it together…..

    senthil ur learning the PIC as well arent u?…..do u want me to bring the PIC notes i have with me on monday?….or have u got some other notes already?…..tell me k….

    tintu i just have one ruppee balance on my cell….thats why i couldnt reply to ur message….was plannin to recharge today and i forgot….you didnt miss out much today after you left girl….we were jus tryin to figure out where we went wrong in the trainin process……i say we all eat soemthing light while doin the project….these heavy lunches make me drowsy at times… what say people…hehe…just a thought…

  102. sapna Says:

    hey all…my net just came back..like lazarus 😉 😉
    anyways…priya speak for urself heavy shmeavy….hehehehehe….anyways back to business…
    Try1-m=40kg

    s=5.321m
    t=15s
    s=ut+0.5at2
    therefore, a=0.047m/s2

    v=0.705m/s

    try2-m=40kg

    s=5.321m
    t=14s
    s=ut+0.5at2
    therefore, a=0.054m/s2

    v=0.7601m/s

    try3-m=40kg

    s=5.321m
    t=7s
    s=ut+0.5at2
    therefore, a=0.21m/s2

    v=1.52m/s

    MOTOR CALCULATIONS

    R=0.3m
    a=0.21 m/s2 (maximum possible practically)
    v(max)=2m/s
    m=100kg taken
    F= ma+μN=21+0.04*900=57N
    note:0.02 is the frictional coeff for a smooth surface..0.04 is the roughest possible.900N is taken as a std value
    P=F*v(max)=114W,both motors….57W one motor……
    Τ = F* R=57*0.3=17.1Nm

    To find rpm of motor

    t=7s
    s=5.321m
    v=1.52
    rpm=(s*60)/(2*3.14*R*t)=26rpm

    now,

    s=5.321m
    v=v(max)=2m/s
    from v2=2as, a=0.375m/s2
    from, v=at, we get t= 5.5s

    therefore rpm=(s*60)/(2*3.14*R*t)=31rpm

    finally, each motor should atleast be 60W,100rpm

  103. sapna Says:

    the previous calculations posted much earlier had a grave error which sir pointed out to me….hiope this serves our purpose…

  104. tintu Says:

    hey all..have somethign to tel u.. we were supposed to finsh voice recog and trainin by 28th jan but now itself we are one week late.. ao ppl v need to rush up. no more wasting time.. i hope u all understand the seriosuness ebhind it..like nisha says we wil b facing tech diff in each stage.. so need to rush up ok.

  105. techtriks Says:

    Friends,
    I could train the voice recognition IC Successfully….It was not the problem with IC, there were so many mistakes in the circuit diagram..
    …But its really have “poor Brain”..Very difficult to teach….

    I got Tintu’s SMS,Hope we will be able to meet tmrw..I will be very busy on friday onwards dor some five days due to excel…
    We have to submit our 2nd weekly report on 09th..So be prepared for that..
    NISHAMS

  106. tintu Says:

    oh thats nice to know.. circiut diagram mistakes?where did v go wrong?so did u train anythign nisha?
    hopefully we ll meet up tomo. anyways bye ppl.. not feeling well

  107. Priya Says:

    yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…..way to go!!!….boy its such a releif to know that the trainin is done…can hardly wait to see it tomorrow….still tryin to contact that engineer i know….why dont engineers ever pick up their phones?!!!…..anyone else having any luck in our motor search? a mistake in our circuit huh….oooh…thats disheartenin….we did do it carefully didnt we….i hope it was jus some silly mistake…thank goodness the ic’s okay….gettin a new one would have been quite difficult

  108. techtriks Says:

    Friends..
    Its not some silly mistakes..(Its our mistake anyway, becoz we were suppose to study it thourougly well before we start doing the circuit, since its such a sensitive ckt in our project).

    MISTAKES:

    1. There were many basic mistakes in the the application circuit in the datasheet itself!!!. That we BLINDLY copied and tried!!!

    2. The CHIPSELECT of SRAM(PIN26)is an active high input, we tied it to ground through a capacitor and resistor as indicated in the applicaion ckt. But upon throughly checking the datasheet of SRAM i found if its low “THE OUTPUT WILL BE DISABLED”..

    3.Interfacing of 74LS373 with HM6264-Many Wrong Connections

    4. Interfacing 74LS47 with 74LS373-Many Wrong connections

    5. One of the common anode 7-segment drivers was damaged.

    …So these many mistakes were there. Thats too just in one circuit!!!! Friends mistakes are common, but we must learn from the mistakes. So next time please keep ur brains deep into the circuit. Its presence of mind matters a lot…

    Now we have a hectic task of teaching remaining..So be alive and active .. We must finish it within 2 days..

    NISHAMS

  109. sapna Says:

    hey everyone,,,net back..im back…thank god ckt is wrking…mistakes i still dint undersatnd..i wanna literally see where we went wrong….hmmm non reliable datasheet..thats one prob..but how can we do wrong connections in interfacing…..

  110. NISHAMS Says:

    Frineds…..We r lagging a lot….have to do so much of things….Why these much of delays…Even if u didnt come over here, please update what all u did these two days(For the project)….

    NISHAMS

  111. Priya Says:

    hey everyone…..i called up two people askin about the motor…..one jigar shah n another guy…..both of them didnt have the motor of our specifications….got their contact numbers from a reliable source but no luck….still tryin….

  112. techtriks Says:

    Friends….Tmrw we can meet at the college(in the moring).

    > Tintu & Sapna, whats the status of Weekly Report? We must submit it tomorrow.

    I had a discusn with Jibi Miss, she asked to get a new file(NOT THE STICK FILE)for keeping our reports. So get one big file in which we can tie our papers and diagrams.

    >Senthil, have u contacted ur sister for getting motor from china?
    (Dont wait for getting reply through mails, its very high time to purchase the motor)

    > Priayanka, Now we have no more time to waste. we have to fix the motor imdtly and get it within 5 days.

    > Please update the status of PIC leaning

    ..I would strictly suggest all of u to interact with each other every day even if we dont meet. Its for that purpose we created this webpage.
    Senthil, u must give the updates imdtly.

  115. tintu Says:

    hey all…its time v get working again.. been a long time.. so haev to start off form tomo itself..haev lots of work na. and check mani sir’s feedback.. its very useful for us.as he said now we have to take strong decisions and work forward with it..im sure we can do it guys.. just put our heart and mind to work and we can do wonders.

    so everyone be there tomo by 10.30. and keep updating the site…

  116. NISHAMS Says:

    ….Today, abt one hr Tintu and Myself trained the IC. Sapan also joined with us later.

    > Senthil Absent (Senthi, U please think how many days u were with the team while working)

    > Priyanka Absent

    …I discusd with Mani Sir about the motor. He said he has found some motors with small wheels which we can attach in place of our front wheel. But someone must purchase it and bring it. Otherwise the shipping charge is more than the cost of the motor. So try to locate someone who can get it for us. I will get more details soon from ManiSir.

    NISHAMS

  117. sapna Says:

    from where is teh motor…..in inida itslef?then its fine…..did u train the ic again yest nite as planned..without any otehr noises behind u…..and motor tell sir we are ready to go anywhere in south india to purchjase the motor….

  118. Priya Says:

    Yea….tell him we’re ready to travel all the way n get it if necessary….sorry i couldnt make it on saturday guys…..something very urgent came up that i just couldnt miss…my guy was in town for a day to take care of some arrangements for the engagement……i thought we were initially gathering on friday and that you had excel work on saturday nisha so i arranged my work and asked him to buy his ticket to kochi accordingly…..wanted to be around while u trained so bad…..but since u guys just met for an hour or two on saturday i feel much better……would hate to miss out on anything…..see you guys tomrow…nisha howz ur leg?….are u comin to college for the excel arrangements tomoro?

  119. NISHAMS Says:

    ..friends..I trained it for a short time at night and it was giving better result. But last night was a hectic one..I was suppose to publish the Excel project presentation things, so many other works, nes reports…Anyway i am optimistic in training it..We can put it in excel , mixed signal stall…training it one, two three and displaying it..ok? Some of us should be there to explain it..

    Tintu and Sapna already there in excel works..I hope Priyaka also will come forward and help me..
    I am coming to the college tmrw..may be busy still can meet…
    I send some links and manisirs mail to the group pls chk it..
    NISHAS

  120. NISHAMS Says:

    FRIENDS….WHERE R U?

  121. Priya Says:

    hey everyone….heard excel is going great guns….was out of station preparing for my engagement which is the day after…..wish me luck….kinda tensed, excited and overwhelmed at the same time…mostly excited…hehe….cant wait….
    that bangalore number doesnt work….tried callin it a few times….whats everyone else upto…spoke to tintu n sapna….nisha u must be really busy huh….ok everyone….till we meet again next…cheerio

  122. tintu Says:

    nisha when can we meet tomo? is 10 fine with u?

  123. tintu Says:

    hey all..
    i suppose its fridya today.. project day right? and how come noone turned up?im seriosuly surprised u ppl can actually behave this irresopnsible.i dont think thre was aa need to inform each perosn to come to nisha s place.. inspite of that. gave al of u mis cal. and sapna. cudt u atleast inform one of us of ur not coming?
    ppl.. start being responsible.. its ur project. i dont think i need to reppeat this again. so amek sure u dont reepeat it. priya can be excused. but rest..

    and one more thing.. we havet fixed on the motor til now.whicih is very very importatnt at this time. we are already laggin. and its the responsibility of each person to check for the tmotor i suppose. sorry for being rude guys. don ahev much options left.cant cal each one and tel u the prob. so this is where we can meet .

  124. NISHAMS Says:

    ….I agree with Tintu..Whatever be the problem, everyone suppose to inform. Its always people try to find excuses for not doing things. If things goes like i lose options..So i may force to discuss the situation with our guide or coordinator…
    I had a one and half hr long discusn with Manisir Yesterday evening. He strongly pointed out the unorganised way of working which we exhibit. It may be my failure as the leader. But i never said any excuses before Mani Sir(even i am not going to put the fractured leg as an excuse of our too slow progress), So let me say frankly now i am not going to encourage this way of working.
    And with this i dont think we will even purchase a motor at the time of final evaluation!!!
    So its very high time to do something creative… I have a humble request to all..Please please dont try to find excuses for the negligence of duty… We can find a million reasons, but finally we will surely in danger if things goes like this…So Try to realise things we are suppose to do at this point… NISHAMS

  125. sapna Says:

    hey all of u…i thot teh whole coll knew that it is wipro workshop 15 16..thats thurs and fri..since i cud not make it on thurs as nisha knew i thot she knew i wud def go on fri…thats project day laso shiv rathui and iw as in coll for a worhshop..everyone knew its wipro workshop..nad im placed in wipro…so i was at workshop from nine to five….so i thot i wud be excused….

  126. sapna Says:

    regarding teh motor..i thot we were to call mani sir and finally fix on the one we had pointed out..lets not looka tmoney now its time thast most important….and nisha there was attendance at the workshop yest….but not a serious one just a playful one….i dont think it matters….order is ay..today friends i need to go to bank and passport office and after that i will join u guys…

  127. NISHAMS Says:

    …Nothing much to say about Sapna’s comments. I believe i rung her on thursday evening and requestd her to call me back since i had low balance..She agreed too..But no reponse after that. Whatever be the reason i dont think there is some difficulty, just for informing anyone in the team.. Anyway its ok..No need to discuss on past days..Think about the work ..

    SENTHIL, ITS YOU ARE BEHAVING SO IRRESPONSIBLE. FROM THE RECORDS IN THE SITE ITSELF ITS CLEAR THAT HOW MANY TIMES U WERE WITH THE TEAM. U MAY HAVE SO MANY REASONS. BUT THINK ITS OUR PROJECT.. WHATEVER BE THE ENGAGMENTS ITS U R SUPPOSE TO FIND TIME FOR THIS.WE CANT HELP U TO MAKE OUT TIME AND MORE OVER ITS NOT OUR DUTY TO REMIND U ALWAYS WHATS TO DO. SO FRANKLY SPEAKING ITS HIGH TIME TO REVEAL THE SITUATION TO THE GUIDE/COORDINATOR AND HOD ABOUT OUR PROGRESS AND TEAM WORK. I DON’T HAVE ANY PERSONL GRUDGE TO ANYONE BUT I CANT LIE BEFORE THEM.

    Comments:
    1. Voice training done, but still problems there in recognition. Need to work on that part.
    2. Second weekly report was submitted in time
    3. Motor Purchasing was suppose to done within 14th, So far not done. Today its confirmed. Hope to get it within 5 days

  129. sapna Says:

    hey nisha..can u just throw light on which motor wats teh specs of teh motor from where and wats teh prize…when u i buzzed u us aid u were stillt alkigna nd after that i dint get nay answers…

  130. tintu Says:

    sapna.. we still gettin information from agni motors.. its still not fixed. but they ahev the motor we need. he has promised to mail us and tel us in detail.so after we get a reply it shall b put in the site

  131. sapna Says:

    thank god..atelast they have wat we need..and its right here in india….then we can proceed now…thats amazing….regarding teh flowchart..i think i can feel there is something wrong..but i cant point on it….something somehwere does not feel right….

  132. tintu Says:

    ppl please bring money tomo to buy the motor. its urgent and no excuses permiitted. beg borrow steal do anything.. its dat urgent.

    bring 1300

  133. Priya Says:

    hey everyone……just spoke to tintu…we got the motor huh…thats great!!!……my engagement function yesterday went on very well….i cant beleive am engaged!….will be seein off my fiance the day after n then its 6 months on my own….me very sad….anyway….so lets get the project rollin guys!!

  134. techtriks Says:

    ..And finally, we could find a motor..Its from Agni motors, bangalore(Mani Sir sggested). The motor they have suits our specs.. So hope to get it within 3 days.
    As Tintu mentioned everyone must bring money tmrw morning itself. And we need to deposite in the Karnataka Bank ltd. I think thats at Pallimukku. Someone has to go there and deposit it. i will give the details tmrw morning..

    NO EXCUSE FOR NOT HAVING MONEY, SOMEHOW U NEED TO MANAGE..ALSO KEEP SOME MORE MONEY, BECOZ WE NEED TO PURCHASE THE BATTERY IMDTLY AFTER GETTING THE MOTOR.

  135. techtriks Says:

    Friends..I taked to Agni Motors after depositing the money. They start making our motor and by the end of this week we will get the motor. They will send the motor in a Volvo Bus. They gave us a discount of Rs.350/motor and transportation charge.

    The total cost of the motor 2900/motor + Rs. 60 = Rs.5860/-
    So Rs. 1172/head.

    NB: There are a lot of telephone bills to settle. Priyanka and Tintu please post the amount u spent. I too suppose to get some- the ISD calls, and min. 10 calls to Agni motors and some Pune etc. Hope it will be shared among the team.

  136. techtriks Says:

    Friends..Now we must think about purchasing the Battery. Everyone please find out the battery according to our specs..Lead Acid maintenance free battery will be gud for us..
    We dont have so much of time for searching it like how we wasted time behind the motor.. So please find out soon, preferably from Ernakulm itself.

  137. sapna Says:

    heyeveryone these are teh responses i got regarding batteries..
    International power coorp…two 12V,28Ah batteries will cost Rs2625 * 2=Rs5250

    Ks battery house and lakhanpal number does not exist

    Fenn battery house will call nisha as i gave her number so that she can make a decision

    gayathri battery is also 12v,28Ah is Rs 2300 * 2= Rs 4600

  142. Priya Says:

    yea 5000 is not bad…..when are we meetin tomoro guys….why dont we head there after the seminar….it probably shud get over before noon….good greif i have no idea what am gonna speak tomoro….feel like am back from a trip to another planet….how is ur leg nisha?…..

  143. sapna Says:

    hey nisha..i just added u accept teh invi….everready has only 1.5V cells..they suggested exide or amamron..i think they should be frfairly good brands for out purpose

  144. techtriks Says:

    Friends…And after a long time everyone present today!!! Its everyone put efforts for Battery..Gud team work..Thats what we need..
    So we fix the AMRON Battery 12V, 32Ah Maintenance free lead acid battery.

  148. Priya Says:

    hey everyone….renju had called me yesterday saying he knows someone in palarivattom who deals with motors….i told him we already got the motors…..he said he just happened to meet this uncle and when he learnt that he dealt with motors he thought of us….thanx renju..

  149. sapna Says:

    people i guess we will meet on wed or thurs rite…that day we need to get two things in order..one drawing of the training part to pcb…then decide the coupling…prob chain drive…and then give it to wrokshop then and there..but i have a doubt….after we wled teh motors we bring it back to base camp or we take it to coll…cos the batteries are 20 kgs na….so how do we carry this arrangement up and down to coll for our mid terms and stuff….???

  150. tintu Says:

    nisha are t u back ? let us know ok

  151. Priya Says:

    nisha will be back only on friday….girl i tried callin u lots of times but u were always on call waiting…if ur reading this…talked to rajesh sir about the laptop we neede urgently….wrote the request letter…..he said he’ll have to talk mani sir n let us know…right now nothing’s available it seems….spoke to jibi miss as well…she says there are only 8 laptops available all of which have been taken….begged a little so she said she’ll let us know tomoro after speakin to mani sir…..maybe we should do that as well….is there any way you can speak to mani sir?…..anyway we’ll know somethin concrete only by tomoro….rajesh sir asked us to hold onto the laptop we have at least till monday….

    hey … got the laptop form col.. its a spoiled one htough… so have taken it to the hp service centre n given it there.. they have promised ot give it to us by tuesday.. i ahve the slip wid me .. wil go n collct it on tuesday.

  155. sapna Says:

    gals…..tuesday is our evaluation….so we ned alaptop for presentation…..imean we dint make the presentation nothing na..wat are we including in our ppt…we did dot eh voice recog we got teh motors and batteries..we did teh calculations we estimated teh costs etc na..this is wat we did…wat we plan to do…weld teh motors,convert th voice ckt to pcb,mount teh batteries design teh chrager and programming..hmm..quite a bit left na,…priya after ur suppli kick ass on programing wecan finish it ina week..tin wat type of charging ckt are we lookinga t?

  156. sapna Says:

    programming and once we fix teh drive mechanism as well….we can weld side bys die we can do teh chraging..nisha can do teh pcb…senthil help priya….wat say…so senti and priya programming me and tin ccharger..im going to do soem searching on the charging ckt..we need to charge a 24V,32Ah battery na..two of them,nisha do the pcb and drive once fixed is going to welding then control cktry…ok…let the darns upplies finish..now onwards nos lacking…

  157. sapna Says:


    chk this out tin..
    What you need to make the charger
    You need the following parts:

    an L200 chip
    an AC/DC converter
    a strip board and wires
    a few resistors (including one variable resistor) and capacitors
    a box to put it all in, preferably aluminum
    connectors for your battery and the AC/DC converter
    various screws to put everything together
    You need the following tools:

    a soldering iron
    a multimeter (well, probably just a voltmeter would do)
    a drill to put holes in your box
    various files, screwdrivers, and wrenches

    the l200 is teh same as lm317 voltage reg ic….

  166. priya Says:

    hey girl..me n sap were loking through the whole thing once again n we have a few doubts…
    1)we havent connected the CPUM pin in our circuit….its left floating….so doesnt that mean it is kept high?….n when it is high its in cpu mode but we need the manual mode….so what do we do with this pin?

    2)where is the DEN pin(16) from the HM2007 connected to?

    3)what does vref actually denote?….does it mean that all the voice inputs should cross 5V to be accepted?

    4)why is battery back up used for the VCC of SRAM?

    5)what is teh normal Ah of a car battery?…any idea?….

    6)why do we keep checkin the previous speed condition for te left and right mode of the wheelchair?

  167. techtriks Says:

    Sapna and Priyanka,I am giving brief discription of each pins of HM2007. Hope this will clear most of ur doubts. then
    Q4) Battery back up used is 3V button cell
    Q5) Commonly 28Ah i have seen in Maruthi/Alto etc
    Q6) Its not checking previous speed condition, but checking the previous direction of motion by checking the flag bits,This is required beocz if someone say RIGHT while going FORWARD, it must go Right, if we stop right motor or reduce the speed of right and left motor in the normal speed, But if think if someone say RIGHT while moving REVERSE if we go for the same step it will go LEFT!!! For avoiding this we must alwaying check the present direction of motion before taking a turn and give the pulses according to that..

    Description of HM2007P pins
    Pin 1,26- GND Ground
    2-3 X(2-1) – A 3.58 MHz crystal is connected to these pins.
    4-6 S(1- 3)- Keypad pins in manual and read/write pins in CPU mode. S2 and S3 determine
    the direction of the data bus.
    S1 chooses the data. If S1 is high, the bus data comes from the output buffer;
    otherwise, the status register is used.
    Pin7 – RDY When HM2007 is ready for hearing voice, a low signal is sent and the attached
    LED goes on. When the chip is not ready, the RDY pin is high.
    8-11 K(1- 4)- Keypad input in manual mode. In CPU mode, these four pins and S(1-3) form
    a bidirectional data bus. When K3 is high the content of the K bus goes into the
    input register.
    12 -Used in household appliance testing. Low is the normal mode.
    13 -WLEN Selects word length.
    14 -CPUM Low for manual mode, high for CPU mode(ITS ITERNALLY PULLED TO LOW, SO IF WE CONNECT TO HIGH THEN ONLY IT BECOME HIGH)
    15 -WAIT If low the chip cannot hear any words. In the CPU mode, when wait is low, the
    chip enters the get-command process.
    16 DEN Activates the latch to display the output.
    17-24 -SA(0-7) External memory data bus.
    25,47 -VDD +5 V

    27-31 -SA(8-12) External memory data bus.
    32-33 -NC No connection
    34 –ME Enables the external SRAM
    35 -MR/MW Read/write control of SRAM
    36-43 -D(0-7) External memory data bus
    44 -VREF The voltage reference of the internal A/D converter. It is connected to VCC
    through a 22k resistor.

    45 -LINE No connection, can be used for testing
    46 -MICIN Microphone input pin. The output of the microphone circuitry is fed to this pin
    48 -AGND Connected to ground via a 0.1uF capacitor.

  168. priya Says:

    why????why is the back up used?
    why is again vref used??wats teh [purpose????

  169. techtriks Says:

    Priyanka,
    This back up is used to hold what ever we saved in the memory. Its not having internal Back up. AS its clear from the name Its a RAM. It will lose all data when we switch of the power supply. So this additional 3v will give power when it goes of and hence it the data will be safe. Otherwise eachtime we need train..Fine?

    The Vref is used for the internal ADC(which converts the analog microphone input to Digital. Most of the cases these Vrefs are tired to VCC since its internal design suits with VCC. But in some cases it may differ too..But in our case Vref = Vcc. So we tied it to Vcc. If its not connected the ADC wont work, so no voice will be accepted!!! got the point?

    Friends, It was a hectic journey and could meet atleast 4 or 5 workshop ppl..Some has no idea t all. and some who has idea, doesnt have time to spare..Will search for some other tmrw sometime…
    And its not as simple as purchasing something from a shop. We must find the right place. otherwise it will b an utter flop…Even for selecting motor how much time we spent..its much more difficult and critical than that..

    Dear Frineds,
    I am very glad to inform u that we got a right place for making the mechanical coupling!!!!
    I went to the workshop which Sapna suggested. But he said he has no idea of machniery. Then a good workshop somewhere near tha area i could find. They agreed to make it within one week, providing i must also work with them.That will be good for us. But it will be a big strain for me. Still i will try my best. Every evening for sometime i have to go there. I will make it with the help of uncle. Anyway those people have some idea and they r doing gud works too..
    So hopefully tmrw i will give it to them..

    Friends..where r u all? Where is Senthil? I think last 2 months he never updated whats hapening in his side. Whatever dead lines and rules we are making is applicable to everyone. occationally we had discisns. Except that no response at all…

    Then friends while writing please make words some more clear. Its difficult to read sometimes..
    Sapna i hope all of u have seen the ppt in this laptop today. In that i included the full ckt with H-bridge. But i wish to discuss with Mani Sir abt the Ckt.

    I would suggest all of u to be a bit more serious. Even amidst supplies i have seen so many ppl in the labs. Its we are not makeing things up to that level.

    While writing the program please follow the second flow chart.

    I hope atleast tmrw we will sit together and discuss.

    Its this site is for discusing things.. It will be difficult to explain each and everything individually, So pls check the site evryday…

    hey …how do we do the delay calculation….1/4M * no.t states * decimal value = delay…but how do we calculate teh t states for every instruction???….urgent

  183. techtriks Says:

    In the PIC instructionset tutorial (at the end of every microcontroller datasheet)the T -Sates are mentioned..Please check it
    NISHAMS

  184. techtriks Says:

    Sapna & Priyanka…Check this delay loop.Hope this will give u some idea. This i took from one of the programs i had done earlier..

    ;PIC Time Delay = 0.3130012 s with Osc = 20.000000 MHz
    movlw D’8′
    movwf CounterC
    movlw D’248′
    movwf CounterB
    movlw D’106′
    movwf CounterA
    loop decfsz CounterA,1
    goto loop
    decfsz CounterB,1
    goto loop
    decfsz CounterC,1
    goto loop
    goto start (Start is in the main program nothing related to this delay)

    NISHAMS

  185. sap Says:

    well..checked the datasheet again..the t statesa re not mentioned….and the delay..well..u still dint tell us teh calculation of how u got these values to be loaded int he count reg..

  186. sap Says:

    suggestions were..
    1)to avoid so many opto couplers and use a relayt for direction control thus reducing rhe number of mosfets..to 2…
    2) make a battery monitor
    3)charger to be done at end..preferable smps.

  187. techtriks Says:

    Friends…
    the drive mechanism wil be ready by next wednesday. I was working with them till now..Now goingto home for consulting the doctor.
    The expense so far.
    Given Rs.500 to the workshop person for purchasing some materials
    Autocharge..Rs. 40/-
    Some Spares also required to purchase in the coming days
    He has not mentioned about the charge. Will tell after making it.

    gulp…from where will we get money in teh night now….shit..its toolatea notice..will try to bring it…1172/5 rite???around 235 bucks rite….yeah fine….1172 sounded huge…anyways….i have to be at the learners at one..so priya and me will have to leave by twlve…nisha…shud we connect a 555 to RC.0?????anyways today me and priya will come and explain teh program to u….that time decide..it was working int eh simulator….

  195. sapna Says:

    i was just thinking…..let teh entire cost of teh workshop come….rite now its 1172 fine..let teh entire thing get over..then we will have to pay them together na..that time we will pay….we can keep the bill also rite..why give small small amounts now in short breaks….let the entire workshop bill come….wat do u ppl suggest….

  196. sapna Says:

    finding a few illogical errors pointed out by the simulator..trying to debug..have to burn once more most prob..

  197. tintu Says:

    hey all.. tomo no need to meet up. today kept the meetin today thinking all of u wud turn up.. nisha had post poned her gng to workdop coz v wer to meet.tomo she wil be at the workshop. so meeting only on sunday..

  198. tintu Says:

    sap.. see if tomto lab is open n go ficich off the pic

  199. priya Says:

    yea….we’ll try and finish the testin tomoro….problem is there is a small problem with the delay part…..we’re tryin to sort that out now….what are you guys upto?……how far is the report done?……

  200. techtriks Says:

    Friends..I would like to point out a few things

    1. About the works in the workshop..Its not for the workshop ppl we gave some money. Note down..ITS A WORKSHOP WHERE WE CAN DO THE WELDING, LATHE WORK ETC..NO SPARES ARE AVAILABLE THERE. ITS WE MUST FIND OUT THINGS AND GIVE THEM..So it costs..and its not the new parts we are purchasing, from scrap we are trying to get things for our purpose..
    2. IF THE BILLS ARE REQUIRED FOR SUCH KIND OF SCRAP ITEMS, I AM VERY SORRY TO INFORM ALL OF U THAT I CANT MAKE OUT THAT FROM THOSE SCRAP SHOPS UNDER THE NORTH BRIDGE…SO SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF THAT AND GET THINGS WITH BILL.
    Anyway i cant take the money in advance anymore. But i can put my share at any time.

    3. I dont think from the workshop too U will get some formal bills. But i can take some slips from them.

    4. Last 7 days we have been working in the workshop(when i was at home i did someworks there and send to these ppl). Its expected to finish by tomorrow evening. Working in a workshop in such a hot atmosphere (with one leg fractured) is not so simple…So i expect better response from ur side,,Today it would have been advancing a lot… but i waited u until 12pm then only i got the infm that u wont come. Then i got to catch an auto in the midnoon and got to go there and forced to work there until 8pm…Its really painful too…Thants y when Tintu came i informe her to meet on SUNDAY, So that i can finish the work
    5. The work will b over by tomorrow evening, So its required to give the money tomorrow(They havent said aanything about it. I will anyway ask them to give some rough estimate in the morning itself–HOPE IT WONT BE LATE INTIMATION!!!!Please keep the amount.

    6. Today one sproket i have purchased from the scrap shop..Cost Rs.120(we need 4 sprokets, 2 from my old bike, but 2 we need to get from outside..If all of u are ready to spare the cost of new sproket —cost around Rs.800 min.–we can purchase new one. Then we will get proper bill!!!)
    Post ur suggestion soon we need one more in the morning.

    7. As u are aware, this laptop was given for servcing once againa to HP service cente, i cant finish the PCB. And now i will do it only after finishing the mechanical part. PCB design needs immense concentation, i cant make it in the night after working in the workishop throughout the day. So hope once i finish the mechanism i can do PCB

    8. ABOUT PROGRAM—If its worked well in the simulator, it must work with the kit..So i would like to discuss with u. And i have a PIC PROGRAMMER with me and we can do everything at my home(Infact many other project batches coming here for doing their program since they found some dificulty in the programmer there!!)

    9. Tintu, U havent taken the notes i have showed u. I think that will help u a lot for making the report

    10. WHERE IS SENTHIL???? NO NEWS FROM HIS SIDE…I AM VERY SORRY TO INFORM THAT IT WILL BE VERY DIFFICULT TO TEACH EACH AND EVERYTHING TO PPL WHO ARE NOT INVOLVED AT THE TIME OF WORKING…ITS A TEAM WORK..AT LEAST WE MUST SHOW SOME CONCERN TO PPL WHO ARE WORKING..

    11. HOPE AT LEAST ON SUNDAY WE WILL BE ABLE TO MEET. IF NOT…,,, I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM U THAT IT WILL BE TOO LATE..SO MUCH OF WORKS PENDING…

    NIHSHAMS

  204. sapna Says:

    hey team….

    i think there has been some misunderstanding to my comments…..
    let me clarify them….
    .firstly since nisha was at home all these days we could not discuss the purchase of these new componenets….as we had done before, we had discussed the cost of the motor and battery and all and then we purchased..this time since u were at home u cud not discuss teh purchase these items…so suddenly, out of the blue, after being at home, u asked for money….after all we are all part of teh project group..and we used to discuss teh purchase of items….and money is definately the last issue..why bother abt 1172/5 which is hardly 200 something…the question is… we dint know abt teh purchase of these items….so i needed to know where teh money went…..thats all..just accounting for the money..nothing more nothing less….thats all…
    .hope all misunderstanding is cleared..
    …so do buy componenets no problems…..
    i clearly understand its difficult for u to work in teh workshop….just let any one of us know wats happening with u….atleast when ur buying new components or soemthing…and wat better way to know where the money is going than teh bill..atleast tell anyone from teh group that ur buying components……
    regards…

  205. techtriks Says:

    Friends, i believe so far whatever works going..i informed everyone. i remember well even from home i rung Sapna and Tintu at least twice and informed that i worked in a lathe there at home and given the things to the workshop ppl at EKM by a travels.
    I think its clear from the mails (which i had send before going home)i gave the wheelchair to a workshop at EKM and worked one day and left home.

    And i gave all minute details of the things going on in the mechanical part..So i wonder how the misunderstanding and confusion came?

    And its very difficult for me to call up everyone every time and inform things, so i always write things in detail. But it is very difficult to update things while working in a workshop. That i can do only at night.

    Its true Rs. 200 plus head is nothing, but for me its difficult to take money in advance everytime. So someone please come forward and invest money then we can put the share.

    ITS THE AMOUNT SO FAR IS NOT FOR THE WORKSHOP ITS FOR PURCHASING THE MATERIALS FOR HUB/ SCREWS/PINS/LOCKS/SPROKETS ETC.ETC.

    TODAY THE DRIVE MECHANISM IS ALMOST OVER AND I COULD DRIVE THE WHEELCHAIR WITH BATTERY. TOMORROW ALSO I WILL BE WORKING THERE. SO I HOPE IT WILL BE OVER BY TOMORROW AND NEED TO GIVE THEM THE MONEY.

    once again i must painfully say, its so strange to read Sapna’s lines — “…..as we had done before, we had discussed the cost of the motor and battery and all and then we purchased..this time since u were at home u cud not discuss teh purchase these items…so suddenly, out of the blue, after being at home, u asked for money…..atleast when ur buying new components or soemthing…and wat better way to know where the money is going than teh bill..atleast tell anyone from teh group that ur buying components……”

    I BELIEVE SO FAR EVERYTHING I TRIED TO DISCUSS WITH ALL OF U/EXPLAINED EVERYTHING..AND I AM SURE EVERYONE KNEW ,SINCE 8 DAYS I HAVE BEEN DOING THE MECHANICAL PART AMIDST SO MUCH OF CONSTRAINTS…

    TODAYS EXPENSE: SPROKET -1 (from the scrapshop under the northbridge(extreme bottom of the bridge))…Rs. 230.
    Original will cost around Rs.800…They asked for Rs.400 and finally got it for Rs.230

    I DONT THINK SOMETHING MORE IS THERE FROM MY SIDE TO EXPLAIN..
    NISHAMS

  206. sapna Says:

    its all cool nisha…dont worry…i was informrd abt ur working in teh shop but not abt teh purchase of components..thast all….never mind….dont take things personally….

  207. sapna Says:

    whenever u or anyone maeks a purchase get bills..thats wat was decided at the beginning of the project..complete transparency…..otherwise in teh end..accounts wotn match…so whenevr anyone buy a purchase..make bills..ask teh people in the shops to make bills..ask for it…not assume u wont get bills…..

    another thing…today we are meeting at 1 30 2 00 rite….i may not be able to maek it..as i have a friend coming from nepal….she coming after a long time….so i will have to drop her at teh staion and all…anyways…the pic is with priya..and i debugged it also…got three programs with me…all three have to burnt adn checked…..anyways if her train aarrives on time i will make it…..i have already told senthil….

  208. priya Says:

    we’re not meetin today sapna….nisha has to go to the workshop…..senthil, i couldnt return your call as i was in church…..sap and me have finished the program so we could burn it in nisha’s place as soon as possible and test it….will the workshop stuff be over by tomoro nisha?…..you need the money tomoro right?….have there beeen any additional expenses or is it jus 1172/5 ?……will bring 230 bucks tomoro anyway…..when are we meetin up?….ten thirty sound good?……

    oh tintu i forgot to ask you….howz the report work goin on?…..you have softcopy of mini project stuff right?….it’ll make things easier….

  209. techtriks Says:

    Friends…
    Once again i must frankly say i am very much disappointed in the response and the way the works going on..Straight i must say i cant take so much of strain if u ppl cant realise it….

    I CLEARLY MENTIONED AT LEAST THREE TIMES THROUGH THIS SITE ITSELF, THERE IS NO CHANCE TO GET ANY KIND OF BILLS FROM SCRAP SHOP(IN MALAYALAM WE SAY ‘ACRIKADA’, WHERE U GET ALL SCRAP ITEMS). IF U HAVE SOME COMMON AWARENESS IT CAN BE EASILY UNDERSTAND, ITS IMPOSIBLE TO GET ANY KIND OF BILLS FROM THERE. AT LEAST WE MUST TRUST PPL WHO ARE WORKING. ITS SUPPOSE TO BE A TEAM WORK..THINK HOW MUCH WE ARE PERFORMING IT IN THE TRUE SENSE. AND I DONT UNDERSTAND Y SO CONCIOUS ABT THESE KIND OF THINGS WHILE HUGE WORKS PENDING.
    I AM FORCED TO ASK …WHETHER WE ARE DOING SOMEKIND OF AUDITING AT THE END ? SO THAT WE NEED ALL BILLS ARRANGED IN A PROPER WAY???!!!!

    Anyway so painfully i must inform u, its difficult for me to do so much of work and teach who are not even in the part of team.(CHECK THE FEEDBACK, PPL WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS SITE WILL DEFINITLY CHECKING IT GAIN AND MAKING COMMENTS) …I too feel now all, works for this project when u get time..
    Frineds…please realise u must find out time, dont think after all other engagements u can do the project.

    MECHANICAL PART IS OVER
    (I DOUBT WHATEVER I AM WRITING AND TAKING IS NOT CLEAR TO ANY OF U, I WROTE IN BOLD LETTERS THAT THOSE Rs.1175 AND REST OF THE SMALL AMOUNTS WERE JUST THE COST OF MATERIALS AND THEIR LABOUR CHARGE WILL COME EXTRA)

    ENTIRE EXPENCE IS AS FOLLOWS:

    LABOUR CHARGE …….Rs. 3500/-(Bill available)
    SPARES MATERIALS….Rs.1175+ 230+ 20+ 300 = 1725

    (Bill for Rs.818 is available. Rest any one can got to the scrap shop and get if its that essential, but dont expect they will tell the same amount, it may be very high or same, becoz they change it time by time there is no fixed price there)

    BATTERY CHARGING IN A SHOP(3 NIGHTS )…Rs. 180 (No bills)

    AUTO CHARGE(Pettyauto’)25/03/07…..Rs.100
    AUTOCHARGE(Back engine auto)16/03..Rs.55
    (Dont know how to get bills for this)


    (Besides this min.Rs 40/day i spend for auto for getting things and going to the workshop since i could not drive the bike with a fractured leg..Just mentined only..and more over u ppl must realise how much effort is required for working in a lathe..I dont think u ppl will feel it since u never experience it and moreover 2 weeks back u have seen the wheelchair in my room and now tmrw u will be seing it with mechanism, so u cant just feel how much effort came in between this…)
    The labour charge would have been more if i was not working with them…

    Anyway i expect all of u will show some more maturity and professionalism at least in the coming days..

    NB: I HUMBLY REQUEST U TO BRING THE AMOUNT AT LEAST TOMORROW AS I AM IN BIG CRISIS..

    Hope all of u are aware abt the componets required for rest of the ckts..Someone pls take intiative so soon and get the components..
    PLEASE KEEP TIME….MEETING AT TMRW 10.30AM. PLS DONT FORGET WHATEVER THERE TO BRING..LIKE PIC/NOTES..WHATEVER…

    dear nisha and dear sapna…..since i understand u both have cleared all the misunderstandings between u two lets all forget about what has happened and work towards makin this project a grand success….and when i mean grand success i mean not just gettin the output but that others will see our wonderful togetherness and unity in working to acheive common goals and learn from us…….peace out…..

    dont forget to bring the money tomoro people….we’ll discuss everything else when we meet….goodnight all

  211. sapna Says:

    hey ppl..i agree with priya……i had called up nisha and we had talked…..no problems..its all cool…and now accounts are crystal clear..there is no confusion…thats all i required…a clear cut idea of how money was going….thank u nisha for putting up teh figures…..thats all i requested….well ppl….tomo we test teh pic….and hopefully it will work..i have sent three progs to nisha by mail….wanna burn all three and etst…after priyas edited version…pri i have tried it again..seems ok..lets cross our fingers..and pray…and yes i totally agree to success not just means output…

    thanku for reminding us of that…anyways hope to see all of u…bye

  212. techtriks Says:

    I was doing test run for last one hour.It was running smooth but the bearings got jam after that. I was trying to loose it…but it become too tight.. I rung up the workshop ppl. They askd me to take it to the workshop at 8am.
    Hope it will b cleared within one hour..Anyway there is no change of meeting time…We must meet at 10.30 itself

  213. sapna Says:

    thats good news…..partly atleast….

  214. priya Says:

    yeaaaaay!….we’re back on track…..now this is what i was talkin about…..love u guys!!…..
    will be there at 10:30 nisha…..sap i’ll meet u in college when we go to sign the attendance and we’ll take off from there to nisha’s place as usual…
    oh and one more thing….sap should i bring the oshon software?….just to show the others how exactly the program works?…….or are we just burning it straight away?….tried takin print outs of the program on my printer…its gettin stuck aagin….we’l do it tomoro when we reach college…..

  215. sapna Says:

    k dear…..hmmm….im sure nisha will have some simulator..so bringing oshon soft is not necessary..but again…it cant be used on any other system na….thats a trial version…..going for driving from eight..he will drop me at coll at 9 30..will attendance and take off…

  216. sapna Says:

    hope u got the ckt diagram..is teh delay teh problem..i think so….anyways we have to burn tehpic again as we gonna finalise teh output side driver na…
    most importantly we saw the wheelchair run on battery….the workshop has done a wonderful job….

  217. techtriks Says:

    Friends…i was doing test run after u left. Its working fine. Thanks to the workshop ppl.They helped me a lot for making it. Whatever i idea/ drwing i suggested they could comprehend well..Eventhough it gave me lot of pain and strain i really enjoyed working with a few ppl who are really dedicated in their work, not just for money….

    As i am very tired after the works in the workshop i could not check the program futher.
    Got the charged battery and two terminals, 2 other terminals they will give tomorrow.
    Battery i managed Rs.95/-
    Terminals Rs. 58 each..took brass, terminal otherwise some other low cost terminals were available there, but they will easily damage…

  219. priya Says:

    yea we’ll try the seperate delay program tomoro….if that doesnt work then we know where are problem lies….lets just pray that all our efforts are not in vain….good luck to all of us…

  220. priya Says:

    sap can u attach and send me the PROG1 file….i cant seem to locate it in my thumb….did u copy it onto mine?….plannin to sit put and finish tryin to debug the remaining program now….

    nisha could u please send me the list of all the componenets left to buy and the specifications….will get them tomoro before i come to ur place k so that we dont have to run around for that too much and waste time….or if i cant senthil will definitely get it….post it on the site k…thanx a lot

  221. priya Says:

    oh and great news!!!…..we split the program into two and we got the output for the first part!!!!….hurrraaaay!!!!!

  222. sapna Says:

    priya…wats ur email address…i sat and wrote teh remaining prog too….wait a sec….dont post ur email id on site..will sned both progs to nisha..prog1 and prog2…

  223. techtriks Says:

    Friends..Like how i did in the evening make the program part by part. Remove all unused variables, instructions etc and make it compact. Then it will easier to debug it. Finally we can make the comple pgm. I have seen the mail. Will chack the pgm.

    I collected the second battery after charging and returned their battery. The terminals will b available tmrw or day after.

    Yesterdays and todays expense:

    Battery–190
    Terminal–116
    NB: ALL R REQUESTED TO BRING THIS AMOUNT AS WELL AS THE REMAINING FOR THE COMPONENTS.

    Its not possible to get the components which we are saying- i mean exact one… So u can go to the Electronics Shop and ask for the following.
    MOSFET
    * VOLTAGE RATING — 30v or above
    * CURRENT — 10A min.
    * On resistance — low

    RELAY
    * Coil volatage-5 volt(6 volt is the standard)/75ohm to150 ohm PCB mounted
    * Contact ..current 10AM
    GATE DRIVER
    TRANSISTORS
    OPTOCOUPLER
    WIRES
    I think we can get the compinets day after..We will fix the ckt tmrw..i have some more thing to design..

    ITS U SHOULD FEEL FROM THE HEART THAT ITS A PROJECT OF URS TOO…

  226. priya Says:

    hey guys!!!!….great news!!!…..we got the output for the second part as well!!!!….then i tried the keyboard mode seperately and got that too…but when we joined everything together there was a small problem…..

    anyways….all of u’all plz bring 300rs tomoro…..we have a lot to buy and the total will coem upto 1500 and it is not possible for one person to keep payin that much advance all the time….so plz bring 300rs tomoro without fail k….thanx guys….
    best of luck to us….lets be optimistic and work towards teh success of this project…

  227. priya Says:

    sap i made the voice recog program u sent me into jus left and right and that worked fine but when we join evrythin together there’s some problem with the keyboard mode….but i tried the keyboard mode seperately and it was fine

  228. sapna Says:

    ok thats great news……so right left fw bw for voice is working..and key board separealy is working na..thats great…when we integrate wats teh problem???i still cant figure out….else we should give up one mode..atleast burn wat we have..right left fw revrse and try stop if not speed of voice….

  229. priya Says:

    exactly what i was thinking!!….instead of wastin more time on the program huh….lets see what nisha and the others have to say about it….what do u think guys?….jus one more week to go right…

  230. techtriks Says:

    The program for voice control is almost over. The output is observed by conecting LEDs at the output ports of the microcontroller.

    Hope i will be able to finish the driver ckt design by tomorrow and we will finsh the project in time..

    Driver ckt Expense:
    MOSFETs, MOSFER Driver, 16A DPDT Relay, 16A Toggle Switch, Optocoupler, Battery clips/Terminals, Push Button Switches,Wires(Single Strand & Multistrand), Bus wire etc..etc Rs.1855/-

  231. sapna Says:

    yes nisha..now our focus shud be the showing of output…hurray to the voice mode…..perfect….
    anyways guys nisha is going to buy the transformer of the charger,,batterry charger..so now after that and some more components…tin just told me it wud be another 400/- per person..tahts a small price to pay this close to some output….id say….anyways..nisha is confident of completing teh driver in another two to three days…children..lets do it..i m sure we can….i mean…ours being such ahuge oprject we reached here..now its just another week…

    another thing..when i saw teh leds glow as per our wish rite..i was sosooooo happy…..now from tomo onwards lets do teh interfacing..say like till 5..then 5 to six..lets finish the remaining locations of voice training….pcb design when shud it happen nisha….

    nisha can u give me the exact device name of the mosfets relay and gatedrivers…

    also..how many extra pins of portd need to be further progged?according to wrong diagram we have programmed three….one relay two pwm..this mite be totally six allE?

  232. sapna Says:

    hey…today we saw the forward movement of teh toy car motor..but back ward and all was not working…..but soemthing si there…nisha how is teh ckt after we left..did uget soem rest?

  233. tintu Says:

    hey.. finished the draft report. cudt submit it today as rajesh sir was absent.. so talked to jibi miss and decided on submittig on monday

  234. techtriks Says:

    Friends…Gud news from the battery charger side!!! Immediately after u all left, i went for the battery charger. Made the PCB in a PCB making place since its not required to do that PCB(we will make the rest of our PCBs)since we dont have tha much of time. And i got all components and 90% of soldering is also over. Now by tomorrow evening we will get the 7Ams transformer and we will be able to test it by tmrw night.
    Todays expense:
    Battery charger componets…TYN612,TC4011,TL084, Box Capacitors,2W Resistors, 15v Zener Diode, BD139, 7812,7912 etc…….. Rs. 688/-

    PCB Printing ……………Rs. 140/-
    Transformer (7A)…………Rs. 1600/-

    Total…………………..Rs. 2428/-

    I purchasd 2 more MOSFETS and MOSFET driver for the sake..Cost…………220+55= Rs.275/-

    So total …2428 + 275 = Rs. 2703/-

    NB: Plese down load the data sheets of the componets used in the battery charger, read it and bring it tomorrw. I hope that will give all of u some good idea abt the ckt when we discuss the charger.

    Now i am trying for the driver part…So a long night!!!!!!..Hope by the morning i will find something…!!

    Hello
    ,
    Thanks for answering b4 also.I asked my cousin to purchase IC in New York. But after ordering they were asking the reason of purchase and that’s also in written on college letter head.So if you can provide me how you purchased then it will be very thankful to me.

    Waiting for your reply…..

  291. NISHAMS Says:

    Dear Pavan,
    I am really wondering..We simply ordered it through the net , using credit card for payment. It came within 12 days!!!. Only drawback was they have charged $8 for shipment..Otherwise there were no complexities.
    So pls request your cousin to get it from another shop or order throught net. I think u will get the web id in google. If not finding i will send it to u within a day or two.

    I would like to inform u one more thing, they stopd the production of HM2007 due to some technical reason, what we are getting is old stock. SO try to get it soon.
    May i know for what purpose u are using it? Or where r u studying?

    All the best..NISHAMS
