MAX30102 and SSD1306

Hi all,

Using a Arduino UNO with MAX30102 with an SSD1306 OLED display module to display pulse and SPO2.

Having an error, there isn't anything being displayed onto the screen, nor is the LED on the sensor coming on.

My code was heavily inspired by: Open Source Pulse Oximeter for COVID-19 - Arduino Project Hub

The MAX30102 sensor in the above link has only 4 pins, but mine has 7 as attached in the photograph.

The SSD1306 is working fine, I have used the library example to check it.

code:

#include <Wire.h>
#include "MAX30105.h"
#include "spo2_algorithm.h"
#include "Adafruit_SSD1306.h"


MAX30105 particleSensor;
Adafruit_SSD1306 oled;


#define SCREEN_WIDTH 128 // oled display width, in pixels
#define SCREEN_HEIGHT 64 // oled display height, in pixels

#define oled_RESET     -1 // Reset pin # (or -1 if sharing Arduino reset pin)
#define SCREEN_ADDRESS 0x3C ///< See datasheet for Address; 0x3D for 128x64, 0x3C for 128x32
Adafruit_SSD1306 display(SCREEN_WIDTH, SCREEN_HEIGHT, &Wire, oled_RESET);

//Arduino Uno doesn't have enough SRAM to store 50 samples of IR led data and red led data in 32-bit format

    while (1);
  }

  particleSensor.setup(55, 4, 2, 200, 411, 4096); //Configure sensor with these settings
}

void loop()

    Serial.println(irBuffer[i], DEC);
  }

  maxim_heart_rate_and_oxygen_saturation(irBuffer, 50, redBuffer, &spo2, &validSPO2, &heartRate, &validHeartRate);

  while (1)

Please advise.

hey did you get the chance to correct it? and if you have a corrected version of this code can you please upload it here
thanks!!

Nice pictures but could you post a schematic, not a frizzy thing. Also include links to technical information on all the hardware devices including power source.
