The Wearware: G-Force data logger project has moved on since the last post, both in specification and status. It was envisaged that a PIC12F, and SD card and SPI Accelerometer would be used but after a few revisions and a little bit of software work it was decided to drop the FAT filesystem for the first prototype. This then left the method of getting data from the logger to a PC of some description up for debate. Should a simple UART be used with a UART -> USB cable which can be picked up on ebay for less than £2.00, … Continue reading Wearware: G-Force data logger: Update 1
