Senior Design Projects using C-Stamp MicrocontrollersIn the paper, the authors describe two senior design projects using C-Stamp Microcontrollers. Oneproject is an electronic scoreboard. The scoreboard can connect to one or two basketball rims and hastwo player modes: 1-player and 2-player. In the 1-player mode, the player has 30 seconds to score asmany baskets as possible. The score is then recorded and the highest score achieved is displayed at thestart of each game. In the 2-player mode, each player has 30 seconds to score as many baskets aspossible. The winner is displayed after the time has expired. The second project is smart parking lot. Thissystem will guide vehicles to the most convenient parking spot available through an LED display, locatedat the lot entrance. Using a micro-controller, a priority system will be implemented which will allow thesystem to choose the best possible option. Infrared lasers or inductive loops will detect vehiclesentering the lot, and also vehicles in parking spots. Both of these two projects use C-Stampmicrocontrollers. The benefits of using C-Stamp microcontroller include fast prototyping, easy to learnand easy to use. It provided an instructive and meaningful experience for the students.
