Clap Sensor

For CSC 475 (Music Information Retrieval) I built a clap sensor that our robot drummer could use for input so that it can do something useful without a MIDI source.  This involved designing the sensor, purchasing components for it, assembling it, and writing some signal processing code to detect claps and output digital signals.

I built the sensor from scratch using the steps given here.
