There were some question asked related to this project. So i decided to redesign the project and make some necessary changes in the algorithm to measure the heart pulses per minute. microcontroller based heartbeat monitor with lcd display ir led and ldr based heartbeat monitor with display on computer and microcontroler LCD display.
The heart rate meter is used to measure the heart beats per minute from finger placing between the sensor. The sensor is made of simple photo resistor and LED. The pulses from the circuit are them amplified and converted into TTL logic pulses using comparator Operational Amplifier.
The analog section of the project is same and taken as such from the last post on this project. Student can take the circuit diagram from that post, if it is not clear. However the LCD connection to Microcontroller are changed in this post. As describe earlier this post is written in the response of student questions so the hardware is slightly changed. If you are familiar of electronics and lcd PIN connection, then you will notice there are not major changes. for LCD details like PIN connection and interfacing with microcontroller, you can just read some related post in this blog. Sufficient material is uploaded for the interfacing of LCD with microcontroller.
In this project, we have used one line 16 character LCD, but any other similar LCD can be connected.heart beat monitor (8051based)
Circuit diagram of the heart rate monitor(micro controller based heartbeat monitor ) is shown below.how we can calculate the heart beat with photo resistance
