Using a Cypress development board, Build an ultrasonic range detector with wireless communication abilities and software on a workstation to communicate with the range detector and present the results.

This project requires having taken CSE30 or equivalent and assumes that you are comfortable with developing on the Cypress development boards. Good candidates would also be familiar with using the USB protocol to communicate between the Cypress board and a work-station. Ideal candidate would know how to use USB over wireless (A specialized Cypress protocol).

These designs are good, but they don't address the issue of communicating with the workstation. My suggestion is to use USB communication and then use the USB based Wifi protocol from Cypress.
