As part of Engineers Week we are running a Night of Short Talks in TOG on Thursday 9th of March kicking off at 7:30pm. The night will be made up of a number of talks on a range of topics.
Title: Car Computer Hacking
Speaker: Daniel Cussen
Many people are afraid to meddle with their cars often due to the fear of a complicated computer running under the hood with no easy way to see what the computer is thinking or doing. We unveil the computer and show low cost interfaces and easy ways to diagnose and repair faults along with modifications and DIY servicing and upgrades. Take the fear out of automotive repair and avoid costly dealer maintenance and repair all using free apps and Bluetooth and USB interfaces. We will also discuss diesel-gate and emissions monitoring.
Title: Google Tango Technology
Speaker: Gleb Lebedev
An overview on Google Tango technology – how it works and what applications it may have. As an example I’ll show a game I made for the Global Game Jam 2017 that uses Tango for positional tracking.
Title :A Maker journey – From The Start
