Heart Beat – Visualizing Heart Rate by Pulse Sensor
I used an Arduino pulse sensor for serial communication between Arduino and Processing because I’m interested in health tech and I wanted to know how to track people’s heart rates with a sensor.
So, for the second time, I combined my Arduino Pulse Sensor including code to Processing for a serial communication.
I wanted to make a simple visualization that can response to my heart rate. Thus, If a user grab the pulse sensor, a red LED light blinks and a heart-shaped object appears on Processing interface and the heart goes pit-a-pot by the user’s pulse rates.
By using this way, I think I will be able to develop my project with the pulse sensor and processing visualization. For my first Physical Computing homework, I created an “LED Heart Beat (Couple Character).” I want to visualize human emotion or senses that enable us to feel. Also, I think I can utilize this sensor to design a wearable health device for my further project.
