For my embedded part of my Imagine Cup entry I had to create a UI to display all the sensor data along with trend data and warnings. Below is an early version of it which I showed off during the UK Imagine Cup finals.
Its all built using C# and Winforms. More of the software design to come.
And attached to the back end of it is lots of Sensors. There are 3 Temperature sensors, 1 light sensors, 1 vibration sensor and 1 sound sensor. These are all supplied by Phidgets and come complete with an Interface Kit.
Also there is an embedded controller unit from Embedded Solutions which I will use to demonstrate the X10 home automation system.
