Morse Code Project

Photocell data reading the letter 'A' in Morse code
Develop a Morse code translator that puts your sensor knowledge to the test using AI, AO and DIO tasks. This challenging project walks students through creating the necessary code to convert user input text to Morse code, output this code using a blinking LED, read that LED with a photo sensor, and then output that same code with a buzzer.
This is module 9 of 10 in the course set, myDAQ Projects for Engineering Students.
