redUniform - Wireless Hardware
I have constructed a wireless sensor system for my performance costume. It has 2 accelerometers (3-axis ADXL330, SparkFun - same as in the Wii remote I believe) and 4 switches (digital). Both receiver and transmitter use a microcontroller (ATmega8, Atmel) and a transceiver (Mirf v2, SparkFun).
Below is a short video, some pictures, SuperCollider classes and also the schematics and the complete firmware if you want to build the thing yourself.
The AVR programmer (USBtinyISP kit v2.0) and the electronic parts needed...
The receiver and transmitter...
Sensors are sewn in...
- 081008: transmitter firmware and schematics updated - added 2 more switches (pins PD6 and PD7)
- 081010: also attached the SuperCollider class RedUniform.sc with help file
