Real time plotting for michelson interferometer signal

Visualisation

This code was written to be run on a raspberry pi connected to a tsl2591 lux sensor from adafruit and has this python libaray as a dependency and plots inputted data (after rewriting calibrate).

Audio

Since gravitational waves (or the noise) is in the audible frequency range, it is intuitive to audiolise it. This part is still under development in the audio branch.

Signal injection

The code also senses button presses from buttons connected to the raspberry-pi and injects a signal that looks like a black hole-black hole merger.

Build18

This project was originally built for CMU's ECE's Build18 2018 edition and was supported with an $800 budget through Build18.
