Physics experimentation with Arduino

This project was a development together with a physics teacher at my university. The idea was to produce a low-cost alternative for data collection hardware in physics experimentation, using Arduino an a web based solution to visualize data from the experiments.

The prototype was for inclined plane experimetns. It consisted of two light sensors to calculate the distance between two points A and B, and a cart that slide between them. Students could connect to a local network to visualize the experiment data and solve practical excercises from there.

We wrote a paper for the project, which was published on the Journal of Physics Teaching. You can find the publication here.

You can find the source code for the projec in this repo.
