Research

Research, Development and Prototyping are the heart of GROUND Lab’s activities. This is where you can find all the research projects that are currently being developed at the Lab, for clients, in partnership with other organizations, or just because we think they are cool!

Farevalue Final Prototype

This past summer we were really busy prototyping a smart, enhanced store value card capable of powering up an e-paper display, for a socially-focused urban planning company called Urbanscale. This is the final working prototype we engineered and fabricated together with our engineer wizard collaborator Todd Bailey and was meant as a feels-like, looks-like, works-like […]

NFC Smart Card Prototyping

GROUND Lab was busy for a part of 2011 in researching, designing, engineering and prototyping a smart value card based off of an RF based circuit and coil for the active transmission of power and data from a base RF unit to a passive RF receiver employing a programmable micro controller with the ability to […]

Mobile Printer prints Web content

One of the things the mobile printing device needs to be able to handle is opening socket GPRS connections in order to travel to specified URLs and Website addresses and downloading their content to be printed in real time. The device can be programmed to ‘call home’ or better download content from a ‘home URL’ […]

Mobile Printer prints SMS

Since one of the most important things we learned from the experience of testing a datalogging platform in health clinics in Uganda was that paper records were very important but also very limiting. The current paper logging process is painfully time consuming and requires lots of time spent processing the data and sending the data […]

Mobile Printer Concept

After we returned from our field trip in December of 2009 to test the concept and feasibility of Device X, we started researching how to design and produce an open source, low-power, low-cost and robust cell phone-based printing device for remote health facilities in Africa that participate in health monitoring and reporting. This device was […]

Open Source Datalogger that Prints

Based on some of the findings from Device X user testing trip to Uganda, we came up with an Arduino based datalogger that can print on most USB HP and Epson printers without the use of drivers or a computer. It’s a stand alone datalogger that can save data, store it, send it via SMS […]
