Completed Bike Cyclocomputer
My Bike Cyclocomputer project is completed and works properly. It acts as a pedometer and speedometer for a bike, and remotely transmits the data back to a computer from up to six miles away! A magnetic reed switch is triggered on the bike as a magnet passes by; an arduino measures the time in between magnet passes and converts it into miles per hour. As bike wheel sizes differ, one can set the radius of their bike wheel with a potentiometer for the first fifteen seconds of the program. A processing sketch I wrote graphs and writes the data to a file, including the top speed and the time it was attained.
I also completed a GitHub page for the project here: http://bobulisk.github.com/Bike-Cyclocomputer/
