Targets with MPR

Started of by drawing the targets on the Hi vest. Thought about how many targets and the size. This is going to be connected to the MPR board so the maximum will be 12. We screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-14-59-34picked 4 targets and different sizes so that the player won’t get shocked easily.

Aftwhatsapp-image-2016-12-07-at-13-01-03er we drew out the targets, we connected the MPR board to the male legs and solder each leg together. By doing this we checked out if each component is working. Using the website which was provided by the lectures. Using this image we connected each on the breadboard and check through the 0-11 ports if works or not.

The MPR board “is a capacitive touch sensor controller driven by an I2C interface. The chip can control up to twelve individual electrodes…” so with this when the missile hits the target, the board will read it as a hit. It works by touching it however we want it to touch with copper tape. It works!
