Project Update

Our project in its current form is about air quality sensing. We want to cheaply and accurately be able to know whats in the air around you.

This currently is what we have set up wise. We wanted to make sure that the sensor that we have worked before building something for it. We plan to make some 3D printed structure to house everything for easy transport. Sadly our sensor that we were using isn’t what we are looking for. It has the capicity to detect more than one gas, but not tell the difference between them. The output range can tell us what gas is present, but many of the ranges overlap.

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial lcd = SoftwareSerial(2,4);

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);
lcd.begin(9600);

lcd.write(0xFE);
lcd.write(0xD0);
lcd.write((uint8_t)0);
lcd.write((uint8_t)0);
lcd.write((uint8_t)255);
delay(10);

}

void loop() {
int reading = analogRead(A0);
Serial.println(reading);

lcd.write(0xFE);
lcd.write(0x58);

lcd.print(reading);

delay(200);

 

Timeline:

4/12 – present

4/17 – start printing the model and get additional sensors

4/19 – add additional code for sensors

4/24 – refinement

Roles :

Anthony – 3D modeling and coding

Chris – sensor research and coding

Jackson – project and conceptual development
