GE's Super Smoker
For GE's BBQ Research Center exhibition at SXSW, I designed and developed a system to read and visualize live sensor data coming from a giant meat smoker, and display it in real-time on three large LCD displays. I developed a custom C++ application as well as Arduino scripts to interface with humidity, temperature, and rotation sensors to sense and display data about the smoker in the form of graphs and dials.
Visual design and programming custom multi-screen C++ applications, as well as Arduino programming of micro-computers to read live sensor data.
Three fullscreen C++/OpenFrameworks applications run off of two computers, reading sensor data via serial. Three Arduinos interface with 5x Vernier temperature sensors, a humidity sensor, and a rotary encode (for sensing smoke velocity).
