BICORDER sensor box

Alex Hiam created a sensor box with the LPC824 microcontroller:



I put this project together for the OSH Park Bring A Hack meetup at the 2016 Bay Area Maker Faire. It’s Tricorder inspired, but can’t quite sense everything, so the name “Bicorder” seemed fitting.
The project currently has:
  • 3-axis magnetometer
  • relative humidity / temperature sensor
  • infrared range finder
  • 128×32 pixel monochrome LCD
    • live plot of temperature (in Celsius)
    • live plot of relative humidity
    • live plot of magnetic field (Z-axis) in uTesla
    • compass display (using the mag X and Y)
    • distance readout in cm

The source code is on GitHub:



Alex leveraged his ARM microcontoller board:
