The Flame Sensor! A Grove Sensor Adapter project

434

A flame sensor, that's unique! In this project we'll use the Grove flame sensor find fires.

You can see the flame sensor mounted at the front, and the mindsensors Grove Sensor Adapter towards the back.

Of course, the flame sensor is the star of the show this time.

When it's facing the candle, we get a nice image of a fire.

The image disappears when the sensor points away from the candle.

A quick look at the program shows it's pretty simple. Take a reading from the Grove sensor adapter. If it's less than 1023 then show the fire image, otherwise clear the screen. Repeat!

Extensions

Why not try making a fire-fighting robot? There's also a Grove fan, try building a robot that can find a candle and put it out. Please share your creations with us, you can find instructions for submitting a blog post of your own on the main blog page.
