Arduino Spectrophotometry

Well, OK, just measuring ambient light for now… but we’ll get there in class soon.

Students in my Computational Methods class are using an Arduino to do some simple sensor measurement stuff. I found a bunch of old FSRs and photoresistors in a bin in the lab. No markings so no datasheets.

No worries –

A little Mathematica “Connected Device” stuff to talk to the Arduino, my interface to Argyll CMS to talk to the i1 Pro, and adjusting the blinds in my office …

DeviceReadTimeSeries + getAmbient = profit$

Pretty linear… We’re ready to roll.
