Record NASA Perseid Meteor Shower Fire Ball

Robometricschool. - Reported from Vivanews on Wednesday (8/13/2014) said that United States space agency, NASA, managed to capture the early stages of 'attack' meteor through the All Sky Fireball 12 cameras spread across six locations in the country. 

Citing Space.com, Wednesday, August 13, 2014, the video was able to capture the Perseid meteor shower early. Bill Cooke of the Meteoroid Environment Office (MEO) at Alabama NASA said the video was able to capture the Perseid meteor rain 110. 

Scientists previously MEO calculate and estimate the trajectory of each meteor is detected. The data will help scientists sort out any Perseid meteors and how high the Perseid meteor burning in the atmosphere. 

Camera All-sky Fireball NASA detects meteors bright light exceeding Mars. Even the video camera is able to capture the glowing fireball in the northern hemisphere sky. One of the pictures that captured the Perseid meteor fireball that burned tenga in Chickamauga, Georgia, USA. 

"Perseid meteor shower is one of the best this year, rivaled only by the Geminid meteor shower," Cooke said late last year while watching the other annual meteor showers. 

Mentioned Perseid meteor debris burning and creates the effect of scintillation light in the sky was actually derived from the comet 109P / Swift-Tuttle. The comet orbits the Sun for 133 years. 

Comet Swift-Tuttle, discovered in 1862 by Lewis Swift and Horace Tuttle. The size of the comet was big enough with a cell nucleus (nucleus) a length of 26 kilometers, or two times bigger than the comet believed to have hit Earth and wiped out the dinosaurs. 

While the Perseid meteor theory originated from comet Swift-Tuttle presented in 1865 by Giovanni Schiaparelli. Comet Swift-Tuttle last m time visit to the solar system in 1992. 

To note the image capture Perseid meteor this is just in the early stages only. Unfortunately the weather was cloudy in some parts of the United States, NASA makes no maximum camera to record meteor shower.

Goal Control Technology in FIFA World Cup 2014 Brazil

Robometricschool. - There are many advantages of technology to help people in sport. One technology that can be used in football or soccer is Goal Control technology. As reported from detikinet that Eventual goal line technology be used for the first time in the competition between Croatia against Brazil in the 2014 World Cup opener.

Figure 1. Goal Control Technology Illustration (Source:Detikinet)

Technology that called GoalControl was developed by a German startup which cost $ 3.5 million to operate.

How it works? GoalControl using 14 cameras to monitor every game and mounted in 12 stadiums in Brazil. The camera is used to detect the movement of the ball on the ground.

In order to track the ball accurately, is used a camera that can record video at up to 500 frames per second. The camera was connected to an image processing computer via high-speed fiber optic cable.

If the results of the analysis of the camera saying that the ball had crossed the goal line, GoalControl will send a message that read "GOAL" to smartwatch imposed by the referee in charge.

If only this technology has been used since the 2010 World Cup, the final outcome of the match between England and Germany would be changed. In a match which was won by Germany's 4-1, hard kick Frank Lampard is not authorized by the referee as a goal.

Referee assess in view of the ball does not enter. Yet if we look at the replay, it appears that the ball had crossed the goal line. But indeed, the ball bounced out quickly.

Asimo Robot from Honda Continuously Running

Robometricschool. - We think you will not foreign again with Asimo robot this time. Maybe Asimo robot now can be called with the celebrities robot because very popular compared with other robot now. Asimo robot is humanoid robot from Honda that developed as human.

Figure 1. Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility or Asimo (Detikinet)

But do you know Asimo stand for? Maybe there aren't many people know the Asimo stand for. Asimo stand for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility

ASIMO robot is arguably the world celebrities. It's been 14 years since the initial generation of ASIMO was introduced to the public in 2000. Now, ASIMO was more clever.

According detikinet, reported that In the conference, Asimo indeed be a special guest. Robot with a height of 1.3 meters and a weight of 50 kg was any show of skill. Starting from up and down the stairs, opened the bottle, drink serving, to shake hands. 

As reported by Business Insider, scientists Honda's Asimo has been equip with better capabilities than previous generations. Especially in terms of flexibility and balance. 

No doubt, this cute robot is now capable of displaying body language, jumping, running at speeds of up to 9 km / h. 

The scientists are optimistic that one day ASIMO can be utilized to assist the activities of the elderly, including those to be a personal assistant in daily activities.

Google Self Driving Car Project 2014 Test Driving

Robometricschool. - Here is the automatic car from the giant technology from Google. This is an automatic car that can move without drive by people. This car small and unique that can run with 160 km per filling battery because this car is electric car.

Figure 1. Google Self Driving Car Project 2014

Automatic car from Google can move with maximum speed 40.2 km/h. The shape of this car small and very nice without people to drive. And this is very interesting car that can run on the city road. Without driving and wheel, this car automatic driving by sensor and computer technology.

Although this car not yet produce for commercial,  this car predicted can receive good by community and society because in the summer in 2015 the DMF California US, will release permission for people to drive automatic car in this city. To know more the test driving Google Self Driving Car project 2014 please watch the video below:

Digital Thermometer using LM35 Sensor Based on Arduino Microcontroller Circuit Schematic

Robometricschool. - There are many electronic circuit that show you about digital thermometer application using sensor LM35. Usually the design digital thermometer also controlled with Microcontroller like MCS51, AVR, Arduino, etc.

In here we will show you one electronic circuit about digital thermometer using LM35 sensor that based on Arduino microcontroller like in figure 1 below. Beside we show you this circuit electronic, we also will give you arduino program for Digital Thermometer using LM35 Sensor with download this program from external server.

Circuit Schematic

Figure 1. Digital Thermometer using LM35 based on Arduino Circuit (Source:circuitstoday)

Component List
  1. IC1 = LM35
  2. Arduino Uno
  3. All component please see on figure 1 above


According Circuitstoday blog, describe that circuit schematic like in figure 1 above is a simple three digit digital thermometer using arduino. Range of this thermometer is from 0°C to 99.9°C. There is also a provision for displaying the temperature in °F scale. Three terminal analog temperature sensor LM35 is used as the sensor here. LM35 can measure temperatures between -55°C to +155°C. The supply voltage range is from 4V to 30V DC and the current drain is 60uA. The LM35 is available in TO-92 package and it is very easy to use. The output voltage of the arduino increases 10mV per °C rise in temperature. That means if 25 °C is the temperature, then output  voltage of the sensor will be 250mV.

Program Application
