More contents will be added soon~

This project is my self research in my undergraduate school.

I believe this is the first smart lock pin which can automatically detect the weight you select on the fitness equipment like seated row machine, Chest press machine and so on.

The blue one is the lock pin. I made a smart one to replace it to automatically detect the weight and the movements.

Infared Sensor Circuit

I used AltiumDesigner 14 to designed the infrared sensor board according to the sensor datasheet and make it to a printed circuit board.

Power System

I designed the power system. I used a Li-ion battery as the main power supply and I converted it to 3.3v for both sensor and MCU.
