Corcoran Scientific

Corcoran Scientific is my part‑time hobby business for discovery projects focused on microcontroller-based electronics. I design and program sensor and control systems using Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other programmable technologies. I help businesses and individuals develop innovative new technologies and maintain older legacy systems.

Discovery Research

Discovery research is my process for turning general ideas into practical project plans. Innovators often come to me with good ideas about what they want, but with practical details yet to be worked out. Before I can estimate the cost of a project, the requirements have to be written out in reasonable detail, separating essential features from convenience features, and proposing practical technology solutions. Consultation with other specialists may also be needed. Discovery research is the hobby portion of Corcoran Scientific. I offer discovery research for free. After discovery research is completed then I can work up estimates of the time, materials and labor for any paid work that may follow.
