    Welcome to the Bodies and Interfaces Wiki!
    This wiki is a space for the staff and students of the UNSW course MDIA2001 Bodies and Interfaces to develop a knowledge-base about the sensor technology and programming that we will be using in the course.

    If you look closely at the Lilypad main board you will see that each petal is labeled. The petals labeled 0-13 are digital I/O pins ( I/O = input or output). Of these digital pins, those numbered 3,5,6, 9,10 and 11 are what is known as pulse width modulation pins (PWM). You use these PWM pins when you want to output an analog style varying signal. You can use this type of signal to, for example, gradually fade an LED. The pins labeled a0-a5 are analog input pins. The board also has a reset button (brass circle within metal square at about 6 oclock in the picture above) and a small LED that is connected to digital pin 13. Finally, the board has a pin that supplies power (+) and a ground pin (-).
    The full schematic for the Lilypad main board can be downloaded from the Arduino site. Leah Buechley also has a good site with introductory tutorials on creating projects using the Lilypad system.
