Cigarette Smoke Detecting Shirt
The Island School, PS/MS 188
Lilypad, Sewable LEDs, MQ5 Smoke Sensor, battery
7th Grader Petter (yes, two T's), created a cigarette smoke detecting shirt using sewable electronics. His goal is to shame people into quitting. See it at: https://vimeo.com/176333648
The MQ5 Smoke Sensor has 3 Pins that we use: VCC, Gnd, and Analog Out. The VCC is hooked up to a battery. Gnd is hooked up to Gnd on the Lilypad. Analog Out (AO) is hooked up to an analog port on the Lilypad (e.g., A3). All three of the LEDs are hooked up to a single number on the Lilypad (e.g., 5).
The MQ5 reads smoke levels from 200 to 10,000. The code states that if the level goes above 500, turn on the LEDs on pin 5.
