Project: Self-Driving Wagon
Date: May 2017 - Present
For: Fun
Team Members: Jeffrey Fisher II and Jeff Fisher
Objective: Mechanize and computerize a small red wagon in order to allow it to drive to a destination. It must avoid obstacles and keep itself out of harm's way in addition to obeying all laws.

    In the 2015-2016 Vex Robotics Season, I was the Captain of team 5327B. The task in the game was to shoot foam balls into triangular nets. Our team won many awards for our robot design, and our unique use of the Vex platform. As Captain, it was my job to teach all new members and guide experienced ones to design and build the best robot that we could.
    Our final design was comprised of, a 6 motor X-Drive which allows for motion in all directions, a two motor high-speed intake for quickly collecting balls, a two motor linear puncher with a one motor angle changer, and an autoloading mechanism for ease of use for the driver. Our robot was very accurate and precise when shooting from anywhere on the field, and also very fast shooting a little over two balls per second.
    Below you can see my team, our robot, and our awards from the 2015-2016 season. The awards displayed are:
  •  Regional Design Awards
  • The California State Championship Design Award
  • The Innovate Award in the Technology Division at The Vex World Championship
  • Regional Tournament Champion Award
  • Regional Judges Award

Project: Etch-Sketch-Bot
Date: July 2015
For: Fun
Team Members: Jeffrey Fisher II
Objective: Create a robot Etch-a-Sketch to draw vector images on an Etch-a-Sketch.

    For this project, I used an Arduino connected to two servo motors to turn the knobs on the Etch-a-Sketch. Currently, the robot is able to draw vectors when input into an array.

Project: Christmas Light Show
Duration: December 2014 - January 2017
For: Fun
Team Members: Jeffrey Fisher II
Objective: Make the Christmas lights on my house turn on and off to music.

    In this project, I made my Christmas lights "dance" to music. To do this I used an Arduino, a relay board with 16 channels, a computer, lots of extension cords, an FM transmitter, wires, and 16 strands of Christmas lights. I wired up the AC power so that all of the lights could be powered by one plug. To turn the lights on and off I connected the common wire to one side of the relay, the other side of the relay is connected to the lights. I use the Arduino to tell the relays to turn on and off. When I was done it looked like the picture below.
Project: Message Display PLD Circuit Design
Date: March 2016
For: High School Digital Electronics Class
Team Members: Jeffrey Fisher II
Objective: Use a programmable logic device to display a message on a seven segment display.

    Using the software Multisim, I designed a circuit that would display the words "robotics is fun". Multisim allowed for me to draw a schematic, and upload it to a Programmable Logic Device(PLD). Then I wired the PLD to the seven segment display on our myDAQ Protoboard. As you increase the bit value on the switches, the message will display as shown below. 

Project: Four Player Rock Paper Scissors
Date: November 2015 - December 2015
For: High School Digital Electronics Class
Objective: Find a problem to solve, then solve it using the skills learned in the course.
Team Members: Jeffrey Fisher II, Navneedh Maudgalya, Justin Rabe, and Josh Reiss

    At the beginning of the assignment, my team and I brainstormed possible problems that we could solve using what we had learned. We not only wanted to get a good grade on the project, but we also wanted to make something cool. After much discussion, my group decided to make a two vs. two rock paper scissors game. The problem we defined was that, in rock paper scissors, people can cheat by watching their opponents. Originally we were going to do one vs. one, but one of the design constraints given by the teacher was having 3 inputs per person. Our final prototype worked halfway, but unfortunately we were unable to get the entire circuit fully functional. 

Project: The School Box
Date: May 2015 - June 2015
For: High School Introduction to Engineering Design - PLTW
Team Members: Jeffrey Fisher II, Brian Patterson, Jack Calhoun, and Shayan Bawney.
Objective: Create a pencil box with good aesthetics and organization.

    Every day, in high school, I carried around a pencil box to hold my school supplies. My pencil box was great, but it didn't hold everything I needed and it was very disorganized. In order to fix this problem, my team and I made a new pencil box with specialized slots for pens and pencils. Not only did we make our pencil box more organized, we also made it hold more items in less space. We only had two weeks to complete this project, so we were not able to fit everything we wanted in the box. In the future, we plan to make The School Box hold more, be more organized, and hopefully put them on sale. Below is a video showing how The School Box works.
