Bicorder sensor box

NewImage

Thanks to Drew for sharing this project from Alex Hiam. Check out more on hackaday.io

I put this project together for the OSH Park Bring A Hack meetup at the 2016 Bay Area Maker Faire. It’s Tricorder inspired, but can’t quite sense everything, so the name “Bicorder” seemed fitting. It currently has a 3-axis magnetometer, a relative humidity / temperature sensor and an infrared range finder. It uses a 128×32 pixel monochrome LCD from Newhaven, which is divided into left and right sections, each displaying one of:

  • live plot of temperature (in Celsius)
  • live plot of relative humidity
  • live plot of magnetic field (Z-axis) in uTesla
  • a compass display (using the mag X and Y)
  • a distance readout in cm

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
