Baggage Handler

This is the Arduino sketch we used to write out accelerometer data to an SD card while it. It's a minor modification of the Datalogger example code from the Arduino IDE.

Our hardware rig was:

  • An Arduino Uno
  • An Ethernet shield because it had an SD card reader on it.
  • An ADXL335 3-axis accelerometer.

Here is a lightning talk about the device and the idea behind it.

The output of the Z-axis of our first experiment with it onboard checked luggage looked like this:
