IO Rodeo works with scientists to develop custom-made open source hardware and software. Our consulting services include the integration of existing open source components into larger instruments, modification of these components to suit different purposes, and the development of new components for entirely new purposes. In all cases the newly developed software and hardware, integration methods and modifications become part of the toolkit we offer.
This project involves the development of a serial communications library and Graphical User Interface for a resizable arena for walking insects. It was developed for the laboratory of Michael Reiser at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Farm Research Campus (JFRC). The motivation was to build a resizable arena to 'herd' walking flies towards any given point within the bounds delimited by the rails.
This project involved the development of hardware and software for acquiring data from the Analog Devices ADXL345 accelerometers and was performed for Wyatt Korff at the Howard Hughes' Medical Institute Janelia Farm Research Campus.
