(I usually get started on my homework pretty late....)
What are reasonable expectations of the Polar heart rate sensor setup included with the Inspiration kit? In the only documentation I've found so far, the "Polar Heart Rate Receiver" kickstart, I find this:
Important! A signal is received only if there is a compatible heart rate sensor transmitter within operating distance (typically four feet or less). The sensor must be worn in accordance with the instructions packaged with it.
Which leads me to believe a valid 'beat' is available from the Polar xmtr/rcvr. That I'm getting a legitimate or plausible rate count from the demo .spin code. Yet with the transmitter a good fifty feet away from the receiver I'm still getting a large number of 'beats'. With the receiver removed from the circuit I'm not receiving any false 'beats'.
Is there a
What are other folks experiencing with the demo setup and code?
- Data sheet available for these parts?
- More detailed documentation? Perhaps a technical blog post from parallax or Polar?
