The objective of the AIRduino Guitar project is to imply the theoretical knowledge on a practical device and build a device that translates the numbers into measured or heard such as in this case results. This work is worthy to use in many technical areas and not sounded to the field of interest in any project as there many applications where the same microcontrollers and sensors could be utilized for different purposes. In simple explanation the accelerometer is to detect the motion on the right hand and the ultrasonic is to detect the distance between the two hands to generate a waveform based on the data collected from both the sensors combined with fingers connection in order to imitate to the full operation process of the real guitar using the microcontroller to compute an output sound as close to the real guitar as possible. The project was built using Arduino UNO microcontroller, ADXL345 accelerometer, and a Parallax PING))) ultrasonic distance meter to generate a guitar-like sound which was enriching in both the knowledgeable and the amusement sides.
Keywords: AIRduino, Parallax PING))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor, UNO Microcontroller
