These devices may then be attached to a dancer`s hands or feet to create music from dance rather than the conventional method of a dance from music.
The following list of research areas will be expanded to individual pages on the right (child-page) column:-
Accelerometer. The MPU-6050 was selected as it is cheap and runs on 3.3V. The diagram above shows the connection to the ESP8266, which is an Arduino/wifi module. The ESP8266 will be used to process and transmit the xyz signals.
Receive xyz and process to MIDI at base station. While wifi is being been considered as the data transfer medium, any wifi connected device could be programmed to read the wifi output stream from the accelerometer device. This will be considered at a later stage.
Using wifi, the base station needs to poll multiple clients (each device) to collect the movement data. Each ESP8266 needs to provide a telnet socket (http not required) https://arduino.stackexchange.com/questions/48264/connecting-multiple-clients-to-a-server-in-wifi
MIDI output at base station. The device for processing the received wifi accelerometer device stream will be selected for its ability to output data to MIDI. This will be considered at a later stage.
MIDI input and control at Audio. Any MIDI device could be used and the MIDI output from the base station would need to be modified accordingly.
