Satellite to Radio to Pneumatic Valve Answered
I want to receive some sort of satellite signal with a radio and then use the data I receive to control a pneumatic system to replicate a heart beating.
I have been talking around with some people who know a bit about radios and the such but haven't gotten much conclusive help.
I would like to build as much of this as I can myself, the entire radio and everything, though I only have about a month to do it. A DIY radio kit paired with an Arduino might be the answer due to time restraints.
What i've learned so far is that I probably want it to be a tunable AM radio. Whether or not I should build that myself from scratch, build a DIY kit, or just purchase one, I am not sure. How to then interface that into a system to then control a pneumatic system, I have no idea other than the obvious arduino. Lastly, I don't need any special signal from the satellite. I really just need to receive a voltage from the radio. Though, hooking into a satellite with an onboard atomic clock so that i can then display the time as well would be great. I am going to keep doing research, though if anyone here can lend a helping hand I would be very appreciative!
