Im a comp sci. student, having a major problem with one of my assignments, if anyone would be able to help me a bit, id be extremely grateful.
Ive been reading quite a lot tutorials and whole robotics got me really interested, straight after this assignment im gonna buy the equipment to build the $50 robot
Ok, so lets start from the beginning. Im supposed to design (not to build, btw) a small device which would be used in suitcases to measure all accelerations that they're exposed on. A small device would have to last 7 days on battery, and store data on whatever storage. So key parts, as far as I can see it, would have to be some microcontroller, storage device (flash memory?), accelerometer, and a battery ofc. I will have to design software to program this device, so it would be able to save and forward the data.
I was thinking about 18F4550, plus additional 3axes accelerometer, but ive no idea which one :/
If it is not the forum for questions like that, please let me know
Thanks in advance
