This summer we have a Co-op working on a closely related project through the Co-op Makership at Louisville’s LVL1 hackerspace : rapid-prototyping sensor housings for the bend sensors. Trent Lowry is using a 3-D printer, then casting some fittings that are compatible with our PVC parts. The uniformity should be much better than our current gluing method.
Deployment plans this summer include the most students yet. Sensors are going outside between Lexington and Louisville. We will have more dataloggers, and our newest ones can transmit data long distance. There will be plenty of soldering and gluing to do as usual.
