From my education, I and my team of 3 other people had been commissioned to make an interactive installation for the location of the Darkpark in Rotterdam.
I then investigated the location with the team by walking around the site and doing desk research into the history of the location.
With this information we were able to form a plan for an interactive installation.
The concept was that a small train would be built at the location in which children could take a tour and during the ride could have a water fight against rabbit targets that are placed on the park. This concept is applicable to this location because the park used to be a shunting yard for trains and because there is now a rabbit infestation at that location.
I made a model of the park with a scale model of the game. I then programmed the game for an Arduino with internet connection. The Arduino records the scoring and transmits the train's data and location to a web interface where players can track the game and enter their name for the highscore system.
With this project I learned to connect an Arduino to the internet and to send data to a website.
I also learned to update the data on the website with AJAX without having to reload the page.
The code for this project can be found on my GitHub Dakpark
