Abstract: Appalachian State University prides itself on its commitment to utilizing renewable energy sources to minimize its carbon footprint. One of the most iconic examples of this commitment is the Broyhill wind turbine. As it stands, there are few access points for citizens to learn about the turbine’s active state: its current output, rotational speed, orientation, etc. The goal of this thesis is to build upon preexisting frameworks and outline the implementation of an Android application that could fill this role and be distributed by the University. The application consists of a tabbed interface including several topical pages, most notably being the animated turbine tab which gathers and animates a turbine using close-to-real-time data acquired via a constructed system of a webserver and a backend database. The resulting application could easily be distributed by the University, following a few server-moves and modifications, as well as become the foundation for several other possible projects. Includes CD.
