I am a part of the software engineering sub-team in the high altitude balloon team.

I have worked on using sensors to detect the environment while the balloon is in air, in order to track the location and conditions the balloon is in, and then performing data analysis on the data gathered from the sensors to find out the trajectory of the balloon, what happened to the balloon, expected or unexpected, and how it reacted to changes in its environment.

We are now working on a web app to display all the data live, and a developing a computer vision system to gain more control over the balloon while it is mid air.
