This is a continues project (Breathing Monitor). This will project will use the Arduino from littleBits this time. The arduino will act as a middle man between the input from the user and the output .
Breathing monitor is a simple project that focus on an individual's breathing rate using the littleBits. This determines whether or not the individual is breathing. If the light does not go on the individual after for a long period, this will show that an individual is not breathing. If the light goes on and off this will signify that the individual is breathing and if the light does not show the buzzer will ring, hence showing the individual is no longer breathing .
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Setting Up
- Light Wire
- Sound Trigger
- Power Source
- Paper Cup
All the above items can be found in the Deluxe Kit of the littleBits.
Step 2: Connection
- Connect the power source to the Arduino
- Ardunio should be conncted to a computer to receive instructions via usb
- The sound trigger (connect to A0), buzzer(connect to D9) and the light wire(connect to D5) should be connected to the arduino as shown in the above diagram
Step 3: Arduino
The Arduino Stage. In this stage the instruction will be sent to the Arduino via usb from the computer. The code has comments with in which explain each function. Once the code has being installed onto the Arduino, disconnect from the computer. The code within the Arduino will keep track of the input that user or individual will put and will inform the Arduino . Hence it will display the results.
Step 4: Testing Stage
The testing phase. once all the above criteria have being met. Test the breathing monitor. Note when testing this project make sure the user is not in a noise place. This will make the make the project run smoooth
