Perspectives and Experiences: Looking at Miniatures

Artists,Reference — Ali Momeni @ 6:00 pm

DUE Feb 13, 2012 – Sensors to actuators, and “the stage”

Assignment — Ali Momeni @ 8:50 pm
  • Working circuit, software and parts for controlling at least 4 motors/lights independently with 4 photo-resistors; this must be prepared, assembled and ready to view at the beginning of class; there will be no time for problem-solving
  • Sketches for “the stage” for your final project; the stage should help you fasten your components (motors/lights) and present your collected miniature objects.  Be prepared to share drawings, sketches, descriptions and reference images for how you will go about designing and making a “stage”.  Each student will be expected to give a 5 minute presentation on their research/ideas for how and why the objects she has collected will be displayed and animated.

IN CLASS: Feb. 8, 2012, sensors to actuators

Electronics,In-Class,Max — Ali Momeni @ 9:05 pm

We continue our work with sensing circuits (using photoresistors) and actuators (LEDs, incandescent light bulbs, motors, and servos).  Connect the necessary components on a bread-board to do the following:

  • One photo resistor controlling the rotation of a servo motor
  • One photo resistor controlling the brightness of an LED
  • One photo resistor controlling the brightness of an incandescent light bulb
  • One photo resistor controlling the speed of a DC motor

Once the circuitry and the Max patch for the above set of mappings is complete, the begin integrating elements from your collection of very-small-things, by attaching some of your collected items to your motors and servos, and lighting other collected items with LEDs and light bulbs

Connecting simple analog sensors: Photoresistor to Microcontroller

Simple circuit for connecting a variable resistance sensor to a micro-controller (with details regarding our favorite microcontroller the Arduino-compatible Teensy):

Controlling DC Motors/Lights: Microcontroller to MOSFET

Electronics,Reference — Ali Momeni @ 6:27 pm

The above diagram shows how to use a microcontoller (like our Arduino-compatible Teeny board) and a MOSFET to turn on/off a DC motor or a light.

In the above diagram:

  • “Load”: your light or actuator (including motors, solenoids) and its two leads
  • “Load Power +12″: the positive terminal of your power supply; note that this voltage can be different than +12V” as long its within the MOSFET’s specifications
  • “MOSFET”: the three leads are labeled [G]ate, [D]rain and [S]ource; refer to the MOSFET’s datasheet to assure which pin is which
  • Grounds: the MOSFET’s [S]ource pin connects to the ground of the power supply; the microcontroller’s ground pin should also be connected to the ground of the power supply
  • “Control +5V”: this connection is to one of the digital outputs pins of the microcontroller (either Digital I/O or PWM)
