The SaskPower Tackle Sled, Generation Mat, and Power Bike were part of the SaskPower Power to Grow Tour. The hardware was used to translate force input from a user into a watt output.
I was responsible for the integration with the custom hardware, and frontend application. The hardware used an analog to digital converter, LabJack U12, connected to a Apple Mac Mini for data communication. I wrote a Python application to poll the U12 for force measurements, and used a web socket to send the translated force to the application frontend. The frontend was written in HTML, CSS, JS, and PHP.
