Pulse sensor amped + Max

Trying to get it working.


Has anyone had any luck?

I’d start by testing it with the processing software that comes with it. Did you get that running? That’ll let you know if the hardware hookup and arduino code is running.

If you do get that running, then it’s just a matter of listening on the right port from [serial].

I’ve acctually got it working yesterday with the help of serial :) Was way to early here on Cycling.


Thanks anyway!

In regards to this post,
Did you guys upload the ‘Pulse Sensor’ sketch in the Arduino IDE from http://pulsesensor.com/ first before using the pulse sensor in Max? Or, did you just use ‘Standard Firmata’ and then just take the totally raw data from the ‘Pulse Sensor’ in Max? My thinking is that if I upload that ‘Pulse Sensor’ sketch from Arduino IDE first, then my data from ‘A0′ of my pulse would be averaged out already.

Thanks for the help
