Do you struggle to get a good night sleep at night? With this unique project from flyingpudding you can use Arduino to build your own sleep tracker. The tracker allows you to monitor your sleep cycle and the movements you make during the night. The tracker is quite simple and is based off three accelerometers which are used to record data about your sleep.
The Arduino sends the movement data to a laptop running Python which produces a very informative sleep pattern graph. You can see an example of the kind of data that this tracker produces in the picture below. If you want to get started making your own sleep tracker checkout the following link.
This is just one of the many examples of projects where using an Arduino provides the perfect platform to collect and analyse data from a number of inputs, an integral aspect of home automation. If you are planning on building your own sleep tracker the team at SuperHouse Automation recommends the Freetronics 3-Axis Accelerometer Module. Check it out at the following link.
