morning folks!

Nira, apurvanandan[m], aSobhy: btw, it would be a good idea to proof read eachothers report and maybe ask RexOrMatrix[m] (when he's around) to check it as well
11:28
aSobhy
That would be very helpfull I almost done just runing the code to take some screenshots
13:20
se6ast1an
Also it would be great to have 5 projects listed here under 2019 (with a page with content): https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/GSoC_Projects
13:21
se6ast1an
Students submit their final work product and their final mentor evaluation: today 18 UTC

16:54
Bertl
no more GSoC? :)
16:56

unlikely with exactly the same participants

meeting time
17:01
se6ast1an
a very warm welcome everyone!
17:02
se6ast1an
time flies, the baby birds grow up so fast now they are about to fly away soon :(
17:02
se6ast1an
stick around!
17:02
se6ast1an
anyway
17:02
se6ast1an
as usual please pm me now for reporting!
17:03
Bertl
for the record: do not smoke stuff you don't know :)
17:03
se6ast1an
yes, dont!
17:04
se6ast1an
OK Nira, please go ahead... For the reader - Nira is working on AXIOM Remote software. A good time to get that wiki page entry set up!
17:05
Nira
Hi! I know you said it before but I will upload everything when ending the meeting
17:07
Nira
I just wanted to finish the documentation before uploading everything, I have really wasted more time than expected on finalizing it, but I'm almost done!
17:09
Nira
Finally, this week I have been ending with the code and including all the buttons for the KMW button debouncing code, I have been going on with the documentation and figuring how to explain myself on a document! As it is okay when you are gathering and saving what you want to say but quite different when writing it better
17:10
Bertl
that's why it is good to have it proofed by fellow students and native speakers :)
17:11
se6ast1an
thanks Nira, anything else to add?
17:12
Nira
that's it, I will upload everything as soon as possible, thank you!
17:14
se6ast1an
great, less than 2h remaining :)
17:15
BAndiT1983
then let's pull off the meeting quickly for final preparations
17:15
se6ast1an
BAndiT1983: your turn, you wanted to report about progress with the AXIOM Remote (https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/AXIOM_Remote) Software development
17:16
BAndiT1983
alright, hello everyone, like se6ast1an already mentioned, i'm also working on the AXIOM Remote, at the moment the C++ port is being implemented, general parts are done
17:16
BAndiT1983
to be able to create clear structure for the future, next step is to implement a bootloader, which will contain main functionality, this would take away the complexity from the main firmware, some sort of BIOS and drivers
17:17
BAndiT1983
struggling a bit with linker script, but it's just because of small knowledge at the moment
17:17
BAndiT1983
also a daemon extension for the AXIOM Remote is planned, to be able to control the camera
17:18
BAndiT1983
in terms of WebUI which is also related to daemon, next week we would try to arrange a meeting with Francis, who was the last developer of the WebUI, Y_G maybe you want to stick around and join it
17:18
BAndiT1983
that's it from my side
17:19
se6ast1an
can you explain what a bootloader is exactly for the general readers maybe?
17:20
BAndiT1983
ok, it's a small application which resides in specific memory are in the microcontroller and should be started either by some trigger, e.g. button or jumper, or plainly when the microcontroller is powered on
17:21
BAndiT1983
in our case it will be used to flash new firmware onto the main PIC32 or the PIC16s which are responsible for knobs and buttons on the AXIOM remote
17:22
BAndiT1983
also shared functionality for bootloader and "application" will be placed in the boot memory, as their is plenty of space, this would allow to simplify the firmware and memory usage on the chip
17:22
BAndiT1983
*as there
17:22
se6ast1an
will the boatloader also enable flashing the AXIOM remote firmware over USB instead of the specific pic programmer hardware we currently have to use?
17:22
se6ast1an
*bootloader
17:23
BAndiT1983
yes, that is the plan, otherwise a bootloader would be not that helpful
17:23
se6ast1an
great, thanks
17:23
se6ast1an
Fares your turn! for the reader - Fares is working on JPEG 1992 Lossless Encoder Core: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/JPEG_1992_lossless_encoder_core
17:23
Fares
Hi everyone!
17:25
Fares
Last week I updated the repo to be ready including some more documentation and test files / simulations / verilog source
17:25
Fares
I also forked the beta repo to work on the top.vhd module, I still working on that but mainly I'm removing HDMI logic and replacing it with USB3.0 logic
17:26
Fares
apurvanandan will need to integrate his work there as well for testing
17:27
Fares
that's all from me, thank you!
17:28
se6ast1an
many thanks!
17:28
se6ast1an
Yash, your turn - For the reader - Yash is working on the camera internal Control Daemon: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/Extend_Camera_Control_Daemon
17:29
Y_G
Hi all,
17:29
Y_G
This week I worked on completing the documentation of the work done and there further scopes . Added a code-flow diagram to help anyone understand how to communication works. I am in the process of cleaning the code to remove any unnecessary comments or couts in the code .
17:30
Y_G
My next goals would be working on the webUI { If allowed :) } so that there can be proper end to end communication with the Daemon. Will need some time for this as have to learn the about the frameworks used in the current state. Also integration testing of the current work is in my TODO.
17:31
BAndiT1983
Y_G, it's always allowed, hope you have seen my comment above
17:31
Y_G
Also since this is the last official meeting of the coding period , I would like to thank all members of the community specially BAndiT1983 for helping me out through all these months from the application stage to coding period
17:31
Y_G
It has been a great journey for me with lots of learning.
17:32
BAndiT1983
we are always glad to help
17:32
Y_G
That would be it from my side .
17:32
se6ast1an
sticking around and pushing development further and also working on different things than during gsoc is highly encouraged even after gsoc ended
17:32
se6ast1an
many thanks
17:32
Y_G
Sure ,Thanks
17:32
se6ast1an
aSobhy: apurvanandan[m] quick updates from you as well?
17:33
apurvanandan[m]
Yes, Hi everybody
17:33
se6ast1an
For the reader - Apurva is working on implementing gearwork and communication interface for the USB 3.0 plugin module. A Wiki page for his work is here - https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/Gearwork_for_USB_3.0_Plugin_Module
17:33
se6ast1an
please go ahead
17:33
apurvanandan[m]
I have completed all the documentation, you all can have a look over my report : https://github.com/apurvanandan1997/usb_plug_mod_ber/blob/master/GSoC19_Report.pdf
17:34
apurvanandan[m]
I have completed and verified the BER testing model for the usb plugin module
17:35
Bertl
verified how?
17:36
apurvanandan[m]
I mean written the codes and tested them
17:36
apurvanandan[m]
On the remote beta
17:37
apurvanandan[m]
I got 0 bit errors on transfer of 10^13 bits
17:37
apurvanandan[m]
* approx 10^13
17:38
apurvanandan[m]
I will be developing the USB plugin module with a FT602 chip after the GSoC
17:39
apurvanandan[m]
Also, I will integrate my code with Fares JPEG lossless encoder for attaining higher fps
17:39
apurvanandan[m]
And ofcourse, the debugging and improvments left in my current code will be done
17:39
apurvanandan[m]
Thats all from my side
17:39
se6ast1an
many thanks!
17:40

17:43
apurvanandan[m]
Sebastian you shared the wrong wiki page for USB plugin module project
17:43
se6ast1an
ah, that must have been the old one from last week,
17:43

No problem, This is the right one
17:43
se6ast1an
right! thanks
