Ship's wheel keyboard emulator
|Project:||Ship's wheel keyboard emulator (I)|
|Description:||Mechanism and electronics to turn a ship's wheel's motions into USB keyboard key strokes for the Range Lights Interactive Museum Display|
|Project Type(s) :|
A similar setup could be used to turn other wheel, handle or general physical object movements into keystrokes to input into a computer or simulator.
How we did it
We designed, 3d printed and integrated the hall sensors into the wheel. We build the electronic circuit to connect the sensors to the Arduino. We also provided the electronics and programming for the Arduino to measure the wheel movement via quadrature encoding.
