Before I have spent too much time and money in wrong directions. I will write this post!
Build accelerometer sensors into a jacket so it will function as an instrument. Send the sensor data wireless with “no latency” to a microcomputer plugged into a mixer. The wireless connection must be 100% stabile from at least 8 meters distance. The wireless connection must be easy and usable in every country “No radio disturbance” and no bad connections.
My own ideas solving it:
- Connect accelerometers and wireless transceiver to an Arduino and sew it into the jacket. The transceiver transmits accelerometer data from the Arduino to a Bela microcomputer.
- Connect wireless transceiver to a Bela microcomputer to work as the receiver.
- Program the Bela to use accelerometer data to control audio playback.
Anyone knows about a stable and fast way of sending data wireless? Would it be possible to transmit it from an Arduino and receive it with a Bela platform? Should I use Wi-Fi or what kind of connection would fit?
I have a fine budget, so don’t hold back with the expensive options.
List of gear I have been looking at:
- https://store.arduino.cc/arduino-mkr1000-wifi-with-headers-mounted - Maybe I could use 2 Arduinos with integrated Wi-Fi transceiver?
I have a background in Max MSP so many of these platforms: Arduino, Bela and wireless connection options isn’t something that I’m used to work with, but I will do everything to make it work!
