Looking for some project guidance with this school project I'm working on. Here's the general idea.
With many states limiting the capacity of small businesses because of the virus, the owner has to be able to maintain control of the amount of people inside of a building. This device would make it cheap for businesses to maintain that safe number of people. To accomplish this, a box is placed above the door with sensors that measure distance. Using two sensors you can establish which direction the person is going and the Arduino uses this information to display a count.
Because I have no experience with Arduino, I'm not sure if I can wire both of the sensors and the display, to the board I want. It seems feasible but being unsure has made me hesitant to purchase everything.
Here are my current plans and ideas, maybe you guys can let me know if there are any compatibility issues.
I was thinking about using the Arduino nano mounted on a mini breadboard connected to two VL53L0X laser sensors and an .96" OLED display , powered by a 9volt battery.
I found a youtube video of a guy who implements the exact same sensors but on a UNO and not a NANO. This video has been really good in terms of helping me understanding the general wiring layout and code.
Thanks in advance for any help or beginner tips.
