Clare Huang & Melissa Merencillo
– Arduino Yun
– Solenoid Valve
– Ultra Sonic Sensor
This was a team project for rapid prototyping. I worked with Clare Huang to make a distance activated shower head to help save water. We used the Arduino Yun with an ultra sonic sensor, a solenoid valve and a MakerBot to 3D print hose adapters. When you are close to the sensor, water will flow through and when you are away from the sensor, the valve will close and the flow will decrease. We also added some 8-bit music that would play when the water is turned off so you can shampoo and dance while saving water!
