Master’s Project (2009)

This was the Master Degree Project of the Computer Science Degree I studied in the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona
Abstract: This project is about the construction feasibility of a system for the follow-up of a marmot’s population weight in high mountain. We build a weighing scale with a force sensor and a
temperature sensor. These analog outputs connect to an ATmega8 microcontroller that, with an algorithm developed in this project, is in continuous listening to detect sudden changes in
the weight. When this happens, the data is recorded in a SRAM memory for, later, being able to download this data to a computer for it to be analyzed by a program that has been created
for such purpose.
