My name is Shane Smyth. I study Creative Media Technologies at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dun Laoghaire. My area of interests includes computer programming, artificial intelligence, and microcontrollers. In the last four years I have developed applications that implement Arduino Uno, Python and computer vision. I strive to create unique projects that are fun, functional and can be applied to the real world. I enjoy self-learning and keeping up to date with new technologies. I describe myself as enthusiastic, focused and optimistic.
This thesis explores the use of machine learning to enhance electrical schematic diagram production. The thesis follows a procedure of planning the project, constructing three prototypes, implementing the final project and user testing. The planning section describes the methodology used in the project, the project timeline, research, and purpose of Breadboard2Schematic. The construction of the three prototypes summarizes the procedures used to develop each prototype during the year. This involved creating a machine learning application. The final project implementation chapter shows the procedure of the final project, which involved applying the machine learning application to an end-to-end built website. The user testing section involves gathering users to test the final project for feedback and further enhancements of the project in the future.
