Project Abstract

An accelerometer equiped datalogger is strapped to a person doing aerial (trapeze, and rope) to measure the force applied to that person through different movements.

Parts List

A small number of parts are needed, mostly in thanks to tiny circuits and their amazing products. I could have gone with the lilypad version of these, but opted to not make it part of my clothing since aerial is so rough on fabrics.

They each look something like this:

These have been ordered, and I’m waiting for them to come in. I’m planning to mount them inside a piece of PVC, and then strap that to my chest.

Output

Once I collect the data, I’m planning to visualize the data in Tableau because it allows me to discover something useful and interesting from the data.
