Seeking reliable, self-motivated interns who are passionate about creating small electronic devices. We will build 2 – 3 different configurations of tiny video players from scratch using Pi Zero and analyze the advantages/disadvantages of each configurations. We will design a casing from scratch and use a 3-D printer to build/manufacture the casing for the best configurations.
Interns will be responsible for building and documenting their own device configurations. Sharing of information and processes among team members is expected. This internship will only be offered to the most highly motivated and qualified candidates.
Interns will research and select which screens, batteries, and possibly ports or memory to purchase and connect to a Pi Zero. Interns will write efficient software to run the devices.
Interns will test and statistically analyze the expected number of hours of battery life for each device/software configuration and battery type. Interns will write documentation for the process to build their device.
Each intern will submit instructions every week documenting how to build an exact replica of the current state of their device. Dr. Schaefer will follow these instructions on her own devices and request that you address gaps in your documentation. Dr. Schaefer is a software engineer with 20+ years engineering experience but no experience with Raspberry Pi.
