Week 4 – Update

What did you do this week?

I finishing cutting my pattern for a 3rd (and hopefullly last) time:

The pulse sensor seems to be working properly. I determined that I am able to get the best read from the sensor when it is placed on the inside of my wrist.  I think this will work nicely with the design of my jacket. I will put a velcro strap on the inside of the cuff to secure the sensor to the skin.

Describe the problems you encountered.

No major problems this week.

Describe the successes you had.

I was excited to get the pulse sensor working.

Are you on schedule?

I am on schedule.  Originally I had planned to finish the construction of the jacket first, but it made more sense to get the sensors up and running to determine how they will be best incorporated into the construction.

What do you plan to do next week?

Before Thanksgiving break I would like to make sure the proximity sensor works and start sewing the jacket together.
