We have a baritone, and felt it could be substantially upgraded with IoT.
What it does
Reads which valves are pressed down and sends info to a website, along with a microphone sensor to check when sound is being played. Animated sheet music is displayed for user to follow along.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Getting the valve contacts to work, and the web server, which was having connection issues. Since we were new to VexFlow, we had to figure out trivial aspects such as displaying ties, bar lines and the animation.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Fit the hardware onto a baritone, and remained functional. The back end was tedious, it took us a long time to get it to work desirably.
What we learned
What's next for Sensor Baritone
Integration of an automatic page flipping system to flip through sheet music.
