Led Breathalyzer With Twitter

About: RAS is the IEEE chapter that brings together students interested in emigrating knowledge in robotics, in the tangent and intersection areas, as well as creating and realizing ideas and projects for the enter...

This project consists on a alcoholism indicator using LEDs, a alcohol sensor and Intel Edison with Twitter integration.

To make this project possible you will have to use an Intel Edison with the arduino BreakBoard. You can see how to configure the board here.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Step 1: Materials

To build this project you will need access to the following:

1. Intel Edison with arduino Breakboard

2. Alcohol Sensor MQ-3

3. Three LEDs (1 Yellow, 1 Red, 1 Green)

4. Three Resistors (220 Ohm)

5. One Resistor (1K Ohm)

6. Jumper wires

Step 2: Step 2: Building

Step 3: Step 3: Code

This code catches the analog value of the alcohol sensor and uses it to turn on the LEDs according to the level of alcohol.

Step 4: Step 4: Code With Twitter Integration

To use this code you will have to download and add to your arduino IDE the twitter library that ou can found here.

In these link you will found instructions to get the Twitter Token and some examples of use.

To make your code works with the Intel Edison, you will have to find its IP adress that you can easily find using the Putty to configure the board.
