We are rethinking some aspects of how we are going to receive the data from the plants in our installation and
We will use only Arduino and capacitive sensors to get simple responses from the plants (ON/OFF). Also, to have different samples of audio, we will need to upload our files to an SD Card and put that in a mp3 shield for Arduino.
With one capacitive touch sensor, we can get responses from up to 12 plants. The idea is to combine the states of 2 or more plants and create different sounds.
Ex: If plant 1 is ON && plant 2 is OFF, play track 1.
If plant 2 is ON && plant 1 is OFF, play track 1.
If plant 3 is ON && plant 2 is ON, play track 2.
ESTIMATE COSTS (per 10 plants):
- Arduino Uno – $ 25,00
- Breadboard – $ 5,00
- Capacitive touch sensor Breakout – $ 5,00
- mp3 shield for Arduino – $ 30,00
- TOTAL: $ 65,00
