Communications

  • Speculate how communications within a home might change when optical fibers bring super high speed data to the home.

  • Propose some new uses for the global positions system (GPS).

  • Illustrate a radio station like communications system that provides audio books on demand.

  • Demonstrate a system that converts text to natural sounding human speech.  Devise a way the text might be changed to include speech inflection codes.

  • Illustrate how earth would communicate to a human settlement on Mars.

  • Demonstrate the time delay problems when trying to communicate with humans on Mars.

  • Build a working model of a system that sends data through walls using magnetic pulses.

  • Illustrate how a “spread spectrum” communications system works.
  • Demonstrate how long range communications to deep space probes might be possible using modulated light instead of radio waves.

  • Perform some optical communications experiments using reflections off of clouds.

  • Demonstrate a house to house communications system using free space optical methods

  • Demonstrate how an “optical wave length division multiplexing” communications system works.

  •  Illustrate how data error detection and correction schemes work.

  •  Demonstrate how a “retro-reflective” light modulator could be used to send data.

  •  Illustrate how optical fibers can carry light information over long distances with little loss.

  • Demonstrate a simple telephone system that uses optical fibers instead of wires.

  • Experiment with methods to send audio information through optical fibers so it could be heard using standard headphones, without batteries or a power source.

  • Illustrate how a wide area optical information broadcasting system might work.

  • Build a working model of a long range telemetry system that uses powerful light pulses and a pulse position encoding scheme. A xenon flash tube might be used as the light source. Just two flashes would be needed to send data over a 30 mile range.

  • Illustrate the principles of a wireless radio frequency identification device (RFID) system.

  • Show how the devices are currently being used to identify pets, using tiny pills injected under the skin of the animal.

  • Build a working model of a helium filled blimp that is radio controlled and is equipped with a tiny television camera. Define some uses for such a craft.

  • Demonstrate a secure computer communications system that uses data encryption techniques.
