    Example Projects

    Sensor Sleeve

    Using the Sparkfun uLog module to log three channels of data and then read it out and graph it in Processing.

    >> See the uLog post for more details on connecting the module!

    Three fabric sensors were attached to the following parts of the arm:
    Palm – fabric pressure sensor
    Wrist – fabric bend sensor
    Elbow – fabric bend sensor


    Screen-shot from reading sensor input using Tom Igoe’s processing patch for reading data from the uLog logger and saving it to a text file. The text file is saved to the processing sketch folder and appears as soon as the data is finished being written.

    Tom Igoe’s example of reading data from a uLog logger and saving it to a file >> http://www.tigoe.net/pcomp/code/category/Processing/616

    Nice example based on Tom Igoe’s code, it filter the noise from the sensor reading and converts HEX to integers! >> http://www.sunshinehere.com/blog/?p=83
