Project Description

In support of educating the public about the mission and ASU’s lead role in it, the School of Earth and Space Exploration is building a high-fidelity, full-scale model of the Psyche spacecraft that will hang from the ceiling of the ISTB-4 building. Approximately 10,000 K-12 students visit the building each year, as well as many thousands of other members of the public. To help them learn about the Psyche spacecraft and mission, this capstone team created a remote system that will highlight the important elements of the spacecraft model (such as lighting up a specific instrument) and sharing information about it down below on tablets. There will be two tablets, one for the first floor and another on the second floor, as well as an interactive board located on the platform of the stairs. The tablets will each address different spacecraft instruments to avoid interference from each other. The interactive board will highlight main pieces of the spacecraft.

This work was created in partial fulfillment of Arizona State University Capstone Courses “CSE 423-424,” “EE 488-489,” and “IEE 485-486”. The work is a result of the Psyche Student Collaborations component of NASA’s Psyche Mission ( “Psyche: A Journey to a Metal World” [Contract number NNM16AA09C] is part of the NASA Discovery Program mission to solar system targets.
