Do you need help with an embedded system? Our team has been working with Oenpelli Embedded Systems since the early 1990s. During this time we have worked with microcontroller (MCU) and Micro-Processor Unit (MPU) and Digital Signal Processing (DSP), such as STM32F4, MSP430, Atmel, PIC, LPC and ARM. We are use to working with COTS devices such as OMAP, BeagleBone Black, Raspberry Pi and Arduino or in-house custom embedded systems. We have also had experience rolling our own real-time operating systems, however still prefer to use COTS such as RTLinux, VxWorks, RTOS and GreenHill. We also consider ourselves Linux experts due to our experience with the Linux kernel, filesystem and extensive knowledge and experience of Linux command line tools and packages. Using the embedded system to read sensors and/or control motors in real-time via various signal processing methods is a very common task for us.
So if you need a custom embedded system built from scatch, or just need further work on an existing embedded system, feel free to contact us. We have much experience designing circuits with MCU's, MPU's or DSP alone using ti.com Design Tools for buck-boost converters, lowpass/highpass filters, and power management IC (PMIC). And when it comes to loading the operating system (possible real-time based) and writting the firware/software, we have that all covered too - programming is also one of our strengths.
Electronics is an art our team has been working with since childhood (from building kits from Dicksmith, Tandy, and Jaycar to designing digital electronic keypads). Since then, we have maintained a constant update of knowledge and experience on the topic, since most of our projects involve either building a circuit from scatch, reviewing circuit designs, programming for target microcontrollers, and/or reworking pre-built PCB's for various needs such as bypassing/hacking solutions, or replacing broken components.
Our primary developer Luke Cole has a history as the "go to man" for many colleagues, and is well known to have "a knack for making things work". To learn more about Luke see his LinkedIn page or personal home page.
The CTO of COLETEK (Luke Cole) originally worked for Hemisphere GPS as a "Robotics Engineer" implementing auto-guidance solutions for agriculture tractors and quadbikes.
Luke Cole also worked at Location Aware Technologies (433) developing indoor tracking devices. And also worked for leading research institutes such as NICTA, CSIRO and ANU Robotics System Lab (lead by Alex Zelinsky).
Lance Cole has also worked at NICTA and has a background of various hardware development, such as working for a contract company to the US millary (EOS), building the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS).
Oenpelli (now often referred to by the inhabitants as Kunbarllanjnja or Gunbalanya) is an Aboriginal community town in west Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia.
The sealed Arnhem Highway links Darwin to Jabiru, the town adjacent to Kakadu National Park. About four kilometres before Jabiru, the sealed road turns off to Ubirr, the Border Store, Cahill’s Crossing on the East Alligator River and Gunbalanya/Oenpelli. The road is dirt from the East Alligator to just before Gunbalanya, a distance of about 16 kilometres. While this road is generally navigable by four wheel drive vehicle, the river crossing is a causeway which is closed by flooding during the wet season (November to April) and at high tides.
Dry season travellers are able to drive the 300 km from Darwin in about three hours and 70 km from Jabiru in under an hour. Northern Land Council permits are required to cross the East Alligator River, the western boundary of Arnhem Land, and travel east to Oenpelli.
Oenpelli has a sealed all weather airstrip.
Oenpelli's community-owned Injalak Art & Craft Centre displays and sells bark paintings for which Arnhem Land is famous.
A permit is required for road travel in Arnhem Land which can take up to two weeks to finalise. It can be organised at the Northern Land Council offices in Darwin or Jabiru. Many visitors prefer to see Arnhem Land through an organised tour operation.
An Open Day is held in August each year and access for this is allowed without permit.
