What Happened in August 2022
I ordered a bunch of AI-Thinker ESP32 camera modules from Universal Solder (Canadian vendor of Arduino, ESP32, electronic components, etc; I’m a happy customer & recommend them thoroughly). Started playing around with them.
Some work on the electronic windvane.
Add a photocell to the office weather station so I could begin to track light levels.
- Another meeting with my MLA and the Minister of Education for British Columbia, Jennifer Whiteside. I’m grateful to the Minister and her staff for the chance to talk.
- Built a map of our trip in July. This was built from GPS data recorded along the trip; I analyzed it to find places where we stopped, compared those places with the charger database maintained by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (https://developer.nrel.gov/docs/transportation/alt-fuel-stations-v1/), and marked the places that matched chargers. Not the most compelling visualization, but it’s a start.
- I resigned as a Core Contributor of the Libre Space Foundation and the Polaris project. It’s been wonderful to work with these folks, and I wish everyone the best, but it’s time for me to move on.
