2015-03-30 (M) Self Contained Haptic Distance Sensor

The first draft of the Arduino code was written. The code was written using the distance sensing code from a past project which was a Theremin-like device and used two distance sensors to calculate hand distance similar to a real Theremin which uses radio waves. Code from this project also filtered bad data from the readings so unreliable readings would be ignored or at least translated into data usable by the servo.

Project files were made public through Dropbox. These files are duplicated from the working copies and not the originals which have file names which change to match the current date. I talked about this method of dates in May of 2014 during a failed 3D printer project.

Files for Self Contained Haptic Distance Sensor:

To do:
  • Design way for servo cam to push on user without rubbing
  • Print enclosure
  • Test for usability
  • Refine design
  • Write program for Arduino
  • Test device
  • Write instructions
  • Propose project for TCP for workshop
  • Make files public

The rest of the posts for this project have been arranged by date.
