Wi-Fi Enabled Stratum-1 GNSS Time Server Built From Scratch

Faire: Rome
Maker: Cristiano Monteiro
My hands-on approach to dissecting IoT from the inside led me to fulfill a long-time dream of having an on-site Stratum-1 Network Time Protocol (NTP) server. NTP is the decades-old synchronization protocol that keeps networked computer clocks accurate. The best-case scenario for an NTP server is being fed from a Stratum-1 time source, that is, for instance, connected to the source of a VERY accurate time, usually an atomic clock (also called, Stratum-0). A good amount of Stratum-0 time sources is constantly floating over our heads! The GPS satellites, each one carrying at least two cesium atomic clocks (accurate up to 1 second every 300 million years). The idea of using GPS as a time source is not new, there are dozens of commercial products available doing precisely that. But my goal is to make it cheap, accurate, self-contained, dual-powered (mains and batteries), wireless-enabled, and portable to use on the field in my HAM Radio activities. Powered by the ever-expanding universe of microcontroller units, this goal is closer than ever. Current functionalities: - Internal RTC synched from GPS satellites constellation (backed by CR2032 battery) - Dual voltage powered - Backup battery for the whole unit (18650) - NTP and RDATE (RFC868) protocols supported - WiFi functionality as a client or access point - Syslog logging - Configuration webpage for WiFi and Syslog, saving to persistent storage (LittleFS) - Informative display with a timestamp, satellites in view, accuracy, wifi server, IP address - Dual function button, short press switch information on display, long press disables WiFi - Status at a glance, with dedicated 5mm LEDs for GPS lock, PPS signal, and WiFi status, as well as visible internal LEDs for charging and GPS module statuses

Faire: Delft
Maker: NULL
Home: Zuid-Holland, Netherlands
(un)maker Faire collects and disseminates outputs or by-products (un)made by (un)makers from across the Netherlands. The aim is to try making a complimentary supply chain via connecting (un)makers beyond traditional areas of specialization. An example of an (un)made object is EROI, an energy drink made from the process of controlling an invasive plant. Now, the question is what does the economy look like when everybody best avoids production?

Light Wheel by Oz Officine Zero

Faire: Rome
Maker: Oz Officine Zero S.c.a.r.l.
We have created Light Wheel, an open-source board that repurposes components from discarded scooters, reducing environmental impact. Our project is a prototype application of Light Wheel on a manual wheelchair for individuals with disabilities, suitable for tight spaces like corridors and elevators. Motorization is achieved using a Light Wheel platform, 36V brushless motors, and repurposed scooter battery packs. The wheelchair, controlled by a joystick, offers optimal functionality and safety, including speed control, anti-tipping measures, audible and visual alerts, and provision for anti-collision sensors. This prototype focuses on autonomous mobility for people with disabilities, providing a low-cost and environmentally friendly solution. Light Wheel exhibits great versatility for various applications.
