Development of a sorting machine by using the microcontroller MC68332 by Motorola, which sorts different euro coins, counts the sorted money and identifies false money.

Complete setup

Visualization of the results in Visual C#

Implemented interfaces in C for the output of debug and error messages as well as the sensor and coin values on the microcontroller for all group members

User interface of the sorting machine

At the bottom of the user interface, you can see the general settings, such as a COM port selection in order to connect with the microcontroller or a Reset button for resetting the money counter. Furthermore, all debug and error messages are displayed here for bugfix purposes. The middle section shows a picture of the coin, which is rolling down the metal rail and which is identified by the sensors. The sensor values are displayed on the top-left, whereas on the top-right, the money counter counts the coins that are already sorted.

IPv6 Project: Tracing IPv6 routes

Berlin Institute of Technology

Mar 2008 – Jul 2008


It is obvious that IPv6 will replace IPv4 in the near future. IPv6 provides many new opportunities for the internet communication. Its extensibility allows creating new features by adding so called extension headers to the IPv6 header.
This project is about implementing a Tracing extension header, which allows network operators to track data packet routes. With this information, it will be possible for them to have an overview about the network configuration, so that they can identify possible bottlenecks at an early stage.

Requirements

  • C/C++ programming experience
  • Understanding of communication networks

Tools

Implementation

Implemented a Tracing extension header to save the IPv6 addresses of the routers visited by a data packet.

Tracing in IPv6

Implemented a Hop-by-Hop Options header with a TracingInfo option in order to control whether tracing is enabled or disabled.

Hop-by-Hop Options Header with TracingInfo Option

Implemented an ICMPv6 Tracing Info Message in order to send the route information back to the sender.
