Tack your Gait!
Everyone has a certain Gait-Rythtm! ..influenced by architecture and our surrounding. This Project should Tack your Gait and find yours.
Things used in this project
Software apps and online services
Hand tools and fabrication machines
The Basic idea is to track your Gait because it is very Special and individual. A friend of mine tried this earlier with different sensors but they always brake. The big Problem with programming was that the library for virtual shields was not compiling without error on MKR1000. So use the latest Version! The second problem was that the app from Microsoft, which you can download from the store is not working! So you need a win10 computer with visual community 2015 to sideload the app on your phone! Don’t overstress the Bluetooth-Connection -> no realtime data visualizing because the Bluetooth module hangs up!
The first Thing was to build the sensors:
the basic layout on cork 2mm
the velostat-foil and copper-stripper
cutting out for cabeling
copper stripes with cabels
detail of soldering
build up sensors for left and right! cabeling sealed with silicon!
gluing on 2nd cork 2mm
finished up side with fizmatte
finished down side with moosgummi
The second Thing was cabeling to arduino:
Making a Little circuit-board for connecting sensors and Bluetooth-Module to sensor:
…and at last programming, hook up to phone and testing!
…and at last programming, hook up to phone and testing! With the project so far you can Count your steps and calculate Steps per Minute……..and it Shows your GPS-Position! In the next step i hook up a SD-Card-Slot and write the data to a SD-Card for protocol. So you can use Google to trace your route on a map and make a mid-track with processing!
But for this the time was to short and the Problems too much 🙂
