Hi dear lads and gals,
I’m working on my Electrical Engineering bachelors thesis and it evolved into something pretty exciting. I’m trying to build a baby monitoring package that would involve 4 major things;
-Positions in a/the crib (in or out)
-and all these should be controlled through a mobile app.
I have a couple of challenges. First of all there can’t be wires all around the place to detect these changes and I’m quite not sure about what the package should consist of. I’ve experimented on a waterproof ds18b20 temperature sensor (got the temperature saved on a web server) and a flex sensor (thought of planting it under the crib) so far. For the breathings I thought of using a microphone but didn’t really get my hands around that.
What better sensor there are that would simplify (also minimize the package size) the process? Is Arduino the best way to go?
Any ideas/directions are welcome,
