Heart beat plotting!
By: Nathan Seidle @ SparkFun Electronics
Date: October 20th, 2016
https://github.com/sparkfun/MAX30105_Breakout
Shows the user's heart beat on Arduino's serial plotter
Instructions:
1) Load code onto Redboard
2) Attach sensor to your finger with a rubber band (see below)
3) Open Tools->'Serial Plotter'
4) Make sure the drop down is set to 115200 baud
5) Checkout the blips!
6) Feel the pulse on your neck and watch it mimic the blips
It is best to attach the sensor to your finger using a rubber band or other tightening
device. Humans are generally bad at applying constant pressure to a thing. When you
press your finger against the sensor it varies enough to cause the blood in your
finger to flow differently which causes the sensor readings to go wonky.
Hardware Connections (Breakoutboard to Arduino):
-5V = 5V (3.3V is allowed)
-GND = GND
-SDA = A4 (or SDA)
-SCL = A5 (or SCL)
-INT = Not connected
The MAX30105 Breakout can handle 5V or 3.3V I2C logic. We recommend powering the board with 5V
but it will also run at 3.3V.
