If you are doing biomedical related project, heart rate data can be really useful. In this tutorial, I will share on how to interface pulse sensor using Maker Nano and display the heart rate (BPM) on LCD. Besides, heartbeat pattern is also animated by 12 LEDs on Maker Nano.
This video shows how to monitor heart rate using pulse sensor and Maker Nano.
This is the list of items used in the video.
This is Arduino sample program to monitor heart rate using pulse sensor and Maker Nano. Please install following libraries through the Library Manager.
- Grove LCD RGB Backlight by Seeed Studio V1.0.0 (Manager)
- PulseSensor Playground by Joel Murphy, Yury Gitman, Brad Needham V1.5.1 (Manager)
