Our project involves interfacing with six LED matrices and audio input. The goal is to take the audio input, perform a frequency domain analysis, and then display the frequency spectrum onto the LED matrices as a spectrometer.
Give two sentences telling what works.
Give two sentences telling what isn't working.
End with a two sentence conclusion.
The sentence count is approximate and only to give an idea of the expected length.
If you have hardware, consider Small Build, Big Execuition for ideas on the final packaging.
The project is located on GitHub here: https://github.com/grinstba/LEDMatrix
Here are the links for the specific hardware we used for this project.
We borrowed a six panel LED Matrix, power supply, pocket beagle, and pocket scroller cape from Dr. Yoder.

Give step by step instructions on how to install your project.
Go to https://falcon-player.gitbooks.io/falcon-player-manual/content/chapter_three_installation/downloading_the_falcon_player.html and follow the instruction to download the latest falcon player image and then flash it to one of your SD cards. Make sure to download the Beagle Bone image and not the Raspberry Pi image. Also, we were not running the falcon player off of eMMC.
Once falcon player is installed, boot up your Beagle Bone and ssh into it with the following credentials: - username: fpp - password: falcon
Once connected to the Beagle Bone, go ahead and clone our GitHub project from https://github.com/grinstba/LEDMatrix. Once the projected has cloned, run the install.sh script to install the needed packages for the project to run.
Once everything is installed, how do you use the program? Give details here, so if you have a long user manual, link to it here.
Here is where you brag about what your project can do.
Include a YouTube demo the audio description.
Theory of Operation
Give a high level overview of the structure of your software. Are you using GStreamer? Show a diagram of the pipeline. Are you running multiple tasks? Show what they do and how they interact.
|10/26/2019||Controll LED matrix with Falcon Player||Brock primarily downloaded and installed Falcon Player to the pocket beagle. Blake primarily setup the LED matrix with the power supply and configured Falcon Player to control the LEDs.|
|10/29/2019||Gain root access to the Falcon Player||Brock primarily gained root access to the pocket beagle and allowed the pocket beagle to connect to the internet through a host computer|
|11/4/2019||Control the LED matrix via a script running on the pocket beagle||Blake and Brock worked together to figure out how to control the LED matrix with a python script|
|11/12/2019||Have the audio spectrometer fully working|
|11/16/2019||Add some flashy features to the spectrometer display|
