Description (Summer 2020)

The current goals of the project include: designing and implementing a control system to update the current outdated control system. The new control system will provide a user-friendly GUI to run on a Windows(7+) Operating System. This GUI will send commands to an Arduino-based hardware interface to control various hardware devices.
