Bat Listener, Arduino and display!

Posted by Matthew Little on

Following on from our previous post on connecting the Bat Listener kit to and Arduino, here we show you how to add a small LCD screen to display frequency data and a 'sonograph'. Hopefully you have the Bat listener connected to the Arduino and are reading data onto the serial port. The next step is to add a small display so we can have a portable display of the most interesting data. What is a 'sonograph'? A sonograph (sometimes called a 'sonogram') is a graph of frequency against time. Displaying the frequency measured by the Bat Listener against time allows...

Connecting the Bat Listener to an Arduino

Posted by Matthew Little on

If you would like to take your bat detecting further, the new version of our Bat Listener has output pads for connecting the output to an Arduino. This means we can measure the exact frequency and start to do more interesting things like recording the frequencies, displaying a 'sonograph' of the detected signal and record the number of bat detections. An Arduino is a small micro-controller which can be easily re-programmed to perform different functions. It can also be used as a link to receive data onto a computer. It is an open-source design with an open-source integrated development environment...
