A Triumphant Return?

A new project for Fall of 2022.

It may have been about a decade since my last blog update, but I’ve been plenty busy with cool projects this whole time. A recent burst of activity culminated in a neat new project to read the level of my oil tank gauge with computer vision. Most interesting is that I found the motivation to document the project pretty thoroughly. I hope someone will find it useful or at least educational.

First Hackaday feature for one of my projects in about a decade.

I’m also happy that Hackaday made a blog post about it as well. It’s not my first project to be featured there, but it has been about a decade since I’ve had anything on the site.
