The development of our software has been under great progress. With this groundstation we can test our electronic components. This interface is as well important for our launch campain. We can see if the sensors work correct, if the Hatch opens correctly and can see all values of the temperature and pressure sensors.
Also the Microcontroller Software, written in pure ANSI-C, has done great progress. Altough there is not much more to see than blinking lights at this point, you can see the development using the IDE (CoIDE) for the Microcontroller we choose, an STM32F103 with 72 MHz.
Of course it is necessary to simulate the environment to adjust the experiment parameters. A simulation using SimuLink has been performed to analyze the heat loss of the sensors during flight to determine the correct control parameters. We will most likely use a PID control.
