The Wireless Jukebox
Team Faculty Advisor:
The Wireless Jukebox is a survey-driven senior design project being developed at UMass Amherst. The goal of the Wireless Jukebox is to create an affordable entertainment system, designed to be implemented at entertainment clubs, as well as in the home.
The system consists of two components. The first is a software application dubbed 'Bleubaux' which runs on a personal computer. Bleubaux is responsible for receiving song requests from a controller over a bluetooth enabled communication link. Bleubaux is also designed to maintain a dynamic list of songs that will be made available to the controller. Additionally, it provides the user a graphical user interface to manipulate the song library.
The second component, an MP3 player, acts in two distinct modes. The first, discussed above, is known as 'Jukebox' mode, where the controller receives the available library from the PC running Bleubaux, selects the song he or she would like to hear, and then transmits the song request over the communication link. Additionally, the controller has a 'standalone mode', where it acts as a functional MP3 player, capable of maintaining a local directory, and audio playback.
