Arduino Tilt Sensor Motor

Team: Lisa Li, Leah Ling, Willow Hong

We began choosing the thermistor as our input. After changing lot of the codes and then running it, we found that the thermistor was not sensitive enough: there were not enough variance the printed data. We actually wanted a input that would give more distinct raw data; therefore, we changed the input to a tilt sensor.

We started with a speaker as an output. But we soon found that firmata did not work with speaker. So we moved onto a motor.

System function: tilting the tilt sensor in different directions (from -90 degree to 90 degree) changes the speed in which the motor vibrates.
