Bitar, Stephen John
The goal of this project was to design a low cost, easy to use internet-connected biomonitoring system which fits in existing incubators and is capable of remote culture monitoring with video and data logged automatically. The final design used a Raspberry Pi microcontroller, USB camera, LED array, custom-created plastic housing, and temperature/humidity sensor. In addition to live video streaming, the device captures still images to create time-lapse videos. The device costs $200 to produce and was made customizable and easily reproducible through the creation of a step-by-step building guide which includes alternative design component suggestions.
