About Us

The Green Blinds team consist of a group of 4 sophomores from Olin College of Engineering.  We developed this project for Principles of Engineering, which is a class at Olin designed to teach the fundamentals of mechatronics. In the first half of the class we learned how to program PICs, and then interface them and their accompanying circuits with mechanical systems.  In the second half of the course we were given free reign to pursue a project of our choice, utilizing the concepts that we had learned and hopefully deepening them while simultaneously gaining more experience in group work.  The result of our labor, creativity and knowledge is represented by this site.
