Project Touch Sensor Module

From LinkSprite Playgound
Jump to: navigation, search

This module normally outputs 0v, but when touched, sends 5v. When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you will see 0 when there is no touch, and 1023 when touched.

 Analog input, analog output, serial output
Reads an analog input pin; a T000220 Touch Sensor connected to I0, maps the result to a range from 0 to 255
and uses the result to set the pulsewidth modulation (PWM) on a T010111 LED Module connected on O0.
Also prints the results to the serial monitor.

// These constants won't change. They're used to give names // to the pins used: const int analogInPin = I0; // Analog input pin that the Touch Sensor is attached to const int analogOutPin= O0; // Analog output pin that the LED is attached to

int sensorValue = 0; // value read from the Touch Sensor int outputValue = 0; // value output to the PWM (analog out)

void setup() {

 // initialize serial communications at 9600 bps:


void loop() {

 // read the analog in value:
 sensorValue = analogRead(analogInPin);            
 // map it to the range of the analog out:
 outputValue = map(sensorValue, 0, 1023, 0, 255);  
 // change the analog out value:
 analogWrite(analogOutPin, outputValue);           
 // print the results to the serial monitor:
 Serial.print("sensor = " );                       
 Serial.print("\t output = ");      
 // wait 10 milliseconds before the next loop
 // for the analog-to-digital converter to settle
