SaskPower – Tackle Your Power Bill, Generation Mat, Power Bike

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.
