Coqui conductivity sensor Coqui

## What Does It Do? **The Coqui: a simple device to read a sensor via an audible tone.** We're exploring using audio frequencies to convey sensor readings -- like a modem, but even simpler -- in order to make sensor readings more accessible for people (or to enable data transmission over ubiquitous audio jacks on PCs and smartphones). ## Latest version The [latest and simplest version of the Coqui](/notes/warren/03-01-2019/build-a-sound-generating-coqui-conductivity-sensor) can be seen in the following images. This version differs from [the previous](/notes/ashkaya/09-17-2016/build-a-coqui-a-simple-water-conductivity-sensor) in a few ways: * smaller, cheaper circuitboard (breadboard) * fewer wires * flatter wires which make it easier to see the circuit However, the circuit is fundamentally the same!

[activities:coqui-version] ## Modify the Coqui [activities:coqui-mods] ## Do something with the Coqui Once you've built a Coqui, here are a few things you can do with it: [notes:grid:activity:coqui-usage] <a class="btn btn-primary" href="/post?tags=activity:coqui-usage,coqui,water-quality,seeks:replications&title=How%20to%20do%20X">Add an activity</a> or request an activity guide you don't see listed **** ## Frequently Asked Questions [questions:coqui] **** [![coquibb.JPG](]( A Coqui is a simple, inexpensive, open source device that generates an audible tone that is based on any electric resistance-based measurement. For example, a Coqui can measure: * conductivity of liquids * temperature * ambient light ## Build a Coqui Instructions on the breadboard-based "BBv1.0" edition of the Coqui can be found here: ### Notes - The github repo for a more permanent printed circuit board version of the coqui is [here]( The Coqu&iacute; is a circuit that allows you to 'hear' the readings from various sensors. Once the Coqu&iacute; is assembled, you'll be able to 'hear' the conductivity of a solution, the temperature of a room, or the color of a pH test strip. </br></br> The design was named (onomatopeically) after the <a href="">several species of small frogs </a> which have a loud, distinctive call at night.</br></br> <iframe src="//;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="600" height="393" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> ### Demo Coqui applications - [Testing the conductivity of a solution]( <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> - [Reacting to an LED with sound]( <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> - [Assessing ambient light levels]( <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//" framebord"0" allowfullscreen></iframe> - [Assessing temperature with a thermistor]( <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> - [Sending water quality voicemails with a coqui using]( [![water-vmail.png](]( ### Building your own Coqui - [Coqui BBv1.0]( a breadboarded version of the Coqui ### Building Coqui sensors - Making a conductivity probe from a [bottle cap and two metal screws]( ## Parts list See the initial parts list here: #13459 and #11209 for a DigiKey shopping cart link at $19 per kit. And @kanarinka mentions: > there are a couple other things that are helpful to have that are not shown (like the probe made from the top of a water bottle with two screws in it and alligator clips to attach that to the breadboard) Scans of an invoice from DigiKey: [![Screenshot_2018-02-28_at_9.59.17_AM.png](]( [![Screenshot_2018-02-28_at_9.59.46_AM.png](](
