Have you ever wanted to impress your friends by saying something crazy like, "I think there's going to be an earthquake soon" moments before an earthq...
The sensor I used to capture seismic vibrations is a Piezo Film vibra-tab. They come with an optional weight attached to the end, but I found that the...
Since a Piezoelectric Film isn't just a simple signal source, some circuitry is required to accurately and predictably measure the sensor's output. ...
The signal coming out of the charge amp section is an AC wave floating on 2.5Vdc. Since the amplitude of the wave is the same size when it swings to t...
This step is probably the simplest - hooking up the circuit to the Arduino. - You need a wire from the Vcc portion on your breadboard to the 5V sl...
The programming was probably the heftiest portion of this project, and hopefully my liberal amount of commenting will help make it clear how the progr...
