I have a provisional patent for an electronic wind speed and direction device and want to build a prototype that integrates that capability with a simple bicycle computer/speedometer. A simple bicycle computer displays speed, average speed maximum speed, distance traveled, among other measures. This device will add actual and relative wind speed as well as an energy output estimate based on a rider's size and wind/drag profile.
The device can either be stand alone or linked via Bluetooth to a smart phone, in which case an accompanying Android app would also need to be developed.
I am also building a wind tunnel to help develop and test the device. I live in Long Beach, CA and would prefer to work with someone who could, on occasion, participate in the testing.
This will most likely be a multi stage project. Below is a 2 stage description. What is shown as Stage 2 will most likely be broken into multiple stages or projects as some of the skills are diverse and may be adjusted based on what is learned in Stage 1.
This project is for Stage 1 and potentially those parts of Stage 2 that fit the skills used in Stage 1.
a) Set 6 SO8 air pressure sensors (SM5420E-030-A-P-T or similar) in a case that has 6 individual air channels. The part of the case with the air channels' sizes and shapes is already designed. The design of the case needs to be updated to seal the air pressure sensors in their individual channels and hold then in place on a circuit board.
b) Use a circuit board and connecting cables to connect those sensors to a microprocessor device (Arduino, Raspberry, or similar) that will allow the output from the various sensors to be stored and analysed, probably attached to a laptop via a USB connection
c) The device will be used in wind tunnel testing to gather the data that is to be analysed. The experimental area of the wind tunnel will be about 12" x 12".
a) Use the basic design of the case created in Stage 1 to build a stand alone device
b) Use the data collected in the wind tunnel testing to program the microprocessor to interpret the sensor data and present the user with the desired feedback on a display that is at least 1" x 1" but not more than 2" x 2".
c) Define the appropriate power needs required to run the device
d) Design the PCB(s) needed to hold the sensors (+ speedometer sensor), the microprocessor, the display, and the power supply.
e) Design the product case to hold all the parts. The case needs to be very low profile and mountable on a bicycle.

Dear sir, I have experience in this area , do you want to use arduino / raspberry pi only or alternates are open ? What will be the material of tunnel.
Hi Sir. I am a professional Electronics Design engineer having expertise in product designing. Contact me and lets have a discussion about this project.
Hi I do prototype for products, do you have the design?, or can i take a look at the patent? Just lets talk and i can prototype and mail to you if you want Relevant Skills and Experience Engineering Prototype
it's really good project. I ready to complete your project. I am suren from India. I got your requirements. So, if you want my help just ping me. Thank you have a good day! best regards Suren
