What is a double transducer?
A “double transducer” is a device that reads some sort of input signal, converts it to a signal in a different domain, and then converts it a second time. The three domains we used for this simple double transducer are distance, light, and angle/direction.
Our project in a nutshell:
The first step in our project is a sensor that detects the distance of an object from it. When the user brings an object closer, the brightness of a light is raised and detected by a sensor that measures light. The data about the amount of light is then used to tell a little motor to point to a specific angle.
The power, data, and calculations are all handled by an Arduino microcontroller.
