I'm also starting a quite big project for Embedded Systems subject at my university. With my lack of electronic knowledge and no skills in programming for STM32 microcontroller it will be really challenging to finish it up before the end of semester. So I'm planning to write here about all successes and failures in that project.
So, what is that project? It's going to be an USB device which collects and sends data from/to wireless satellites. These satellites are general purpose, my plan is to make one sending data with measured temperature, another one with atmospheric pressure and the last one as a satellite receiver with LED simulating opening/closing a valve. So it's going to be a some kind of control system with wireless communication. Satellites will be powered from batteries, central device - from USB. That USB will be also used to send data to the computer where a desktop app will be used to present them and control.
I have a basic knowledge with microcontrollers. In previous semester I made a digital door lock on Atmel AVR µC, also for an university project but the new one is a lot of bigger and more difficult. We will see!
