[#NETMF] HowTo: Create a motion sensor (II)



in the yesterday’s post I commented on an accessory to detect movements using. Net Gadgeteer . Today we will see how with a couple of lines of code more, we can activate the camera when motion is detected, you take a picture and show it in the graphic display.

For this example we will use

With the following diagram


And then in the code to see that

  • When motion is detected tells the camera to take a photo (line 21)
  • When the camera takes a photo, it is shown in the graphic display
   1: using System;

   2: using GT = Gadgeteer;


   4: namespace GadgeteerApp15

   5: {

   6:     public partial class Program

   7:     {

   8:         void ProgramStarted()

   9:         {

  10:             motion_Sensor.Motion_Sensed += MotionSensorMotionSensed;

  11:             camera.PictureCaptured += CameraPictureCaptured;

  12:         }


  14:         void CameraPictureCaptured(GT.Modules.GHIElectronics.Camera sender, GT.Picture picture)

  15:         {

  16:             display_T35.SimpleGraphics.DisplayImage(picture, 5, 5);

  17:         }


  19:         void MotionSensorMotionSensed(GT.Modules.GHIElectronics.Motion_Sensor sender, GT.Modules.GHIElectronics.Motion_Sensor.Motion_SensorState state)

  20:         {

  21:             camera.TakePicture();

  22:         }

  23:     }

  24: }

In the next posts to see how to send this information to a processor of movements, and even… well as mount with a model client / server.
