Demonstration circuit for piezo sensor, connected to NI myRIO MXP.


Piezoelectric-Effect Sensor

This is lab 15 of 39 in the course
by Dr. Ed Doering | Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
This project introduces students to the piezoelectric effect, and using a piezoelectric sensor to detect shock and vibration. Students build an interface circuit, and use myRIO and LabVIEW to observe how flexing a piezo sensor affects voltage. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the Piezoelectric-Effect sensor, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
