So many of 'em!!!

The point is, I wanted to stick with my idea but I though it was going to be pretty smooth, but I guess not anymore.

Time is not enough and have so much other stuff to do (finals time , so stressed), plus what they taught in class for arduino is not enough. So yes, I might want to reproduce one of those experiments, If I find a decent one.

I just wanted to do something with my accelerometer. If you have any suggestions, please tell me.



Well, I was expecting something like 5 cm of displacement.

Thanks,

Wow, this is going to be too complicated for my present knowledge.


Do you know where can I get some ideas of project/experiments with Arduino with an accelerometer?

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Actually I thought about that too and I think it would work, because I can put my equation in terms of the maximum slope of the cantilever, which is the same angle that the Arduino forms with the ground, which is the same angle as the slope.

So, how would you do that?

Cheers,

Hello everyone,

I am doing a project for University.

Basically I want to program the Arduino Board with an Accelerometer on it, then locate it at the free end of a cantilever beam.

Then, I will move downward the Arduino with my hand.

My outcome is, I want the Arduino to tell me (by a red LED on a bread board) when I reach the maximum displacement that the cantilever beam can withstand.

I know  how to find the maximum displacement.

My question now is: how can I read the distance travelled by the arduino, while it measures the acceleration?


Thanks a lot smiley
