Week 3

Tapio starts working on the PCB design for the sensor. We need to have a PCB with two conductive lines close together so we can measure the voltage between them that changes when the soil changes in humidity. We think about putting the micro-controller directly on top of the sensor to avoid problems with parasite capacitance due to long connection cables.


Tiberio and Xiao work on the presentation, at the beginning we thought using a PPT, but than we choose to show the website, repo and the first 3D model.

This week we print also some components for testing
