Pulse Sensor Connection
The pulse sensor outputs a voltage that provides information about your heart rate. The VINT Hub Phidget is capable of reading voltages between 0 and 5V.
Connect your pulse rate sensor directly to hub port 0.
Your pulse sensor should now be connected directly to port 0 on your VINT Hub Phidget.
Note: for a more permanent connection, consider soldering the wires together.
If you have used GitHub before, you can clone the directory. If you are new to GitHub, you can simply click on the green Code button, and download the code as a zipped file.
Note: You will need to add the Phidget libraries to this project. If you need a reminder of how to do this, revisit the Getting Started Kit Course.
Run The Program
Connect the pulse sensor to you finger or ear, and run the program. You can use the slider at the bottom of the window to zoom in on the signal!
Stay tuned for part two of this project where a BPM calculation is added.
