For our midterm, we have been working with an accelerometer and sending multiple sensor readings over serial. For the lab, I used sensors I had sitting around:
- temperature sensor
- magnetic reed sensor
I didn't have any significant problems getting the lab to function, but we did experience some problems with serial readings freezing or being unreliable for the elevator project.
We are working on video in ICM and in the spirit of Hurricane Sandy, I used the sensors to control the start and stop of a video, the playback speed & select different videos based on the temperature. The temperature to different video part is still a work in progress, but the sensor readings are getting to Processing. I'm hoping to be able to combine the video with background replacement, placing the user in the middle of the snow storm, rainy day or sun.
