At SuperLab.TV we design and prototype Open-Source Advanced Learning Platforms.  Our platforms are intended for Research & Development (R&D) teams, Engineers, Students and Makers to learn how to prototype, integrate and experiment with the latest microcontrollers and sensors. Our platforms are constructed with easy to find parts using a vertical design requiring minimal space. Microcontrollers, sensors and other equipment are layered upon clear removable shelves for easy access and are intended to be interchangeable between models (they're also very cool to look at!)

SLTV MODEL 2 - Temperature Monitoring

        

MODEL 2 Live Temperature Readings

Model 2
        



  The chart above graphs the Raspberry Pi oil temperature (F) over 24 hours. You
     can see how the oil temperature closely follows the room tempurature chart below.



This chart graphs the room temp (F) in the lab over 24 hours. The jagged up
and down spikes represent the furnace turning on and off in the lab.            


The SLTV Model 2 focuses on temperature sensors. At the core of the Model 2 is a Raspberry Pi submerged in mineral oil. An ioBridge web gateway and two temperature probe widgets post real-time chart readings of the oil and room temperature for comparison. Directly above the oil chamber is an air pump which, when triggered, pumps air into the oil. This causes the oil temperature in the chamber to drop approximately 3 degrees within a few seconds. The air pump can also be manually triggered using the ioBridge iPhone application remotely.

SLTV MODEL 1 - Vibration Monitoring

        

SLTV MODEL 1 (Close-up)

Model 1 Model 1

The SLTV Model 1 focuses on vibration sensors. This unit incorporates an Arduino cellphone shield, accelerometer, geophone and an electric guitar pickup to demonstrate real time vibration monitoring with a graphical LCD (GLCD) and data logging to an SD card.
