The sampling carousel project are a project as an introduction to embedded technology. Here we build a carousel able to rotate to a given position.
The project is modelled in Fusion 360 and runs on a hacked servo motor and a IR sensor to register the position. There are also installed a distance sensor there continuously logged if samples where in the holder.
The project focus was to learn about programming with the Arduino environment and mostly optimising the code by learning about custom functions, building liberty’s, using watchdogs and interrupts and more.
