DiveDuino: DIY Arduino Based Dive Computer

Great project that can help determine your current depth, water temperature, and more while diving.

DiveDuino came to my mind since I am an active diver and I enjoy the sport. I am an electrical engineer and at work I came across with the Arduino platform. Dive computers are expensive, if you want all the fancy features, you can find some computers for about $150 USD and others for about $1500 USD. Every basic dive computer has this indicators: No Decompression Limit(NDL), depth, temperature and elapsed time. So why not create something with the help of the Arduino open source platform, I found a sensor that could interact with Arduino and the rest is the prototype that I am building.

Uses our Monochrome 0.96″ 128×64 OLED graphic display

These displays are small, only about 1″ diameter, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This display is made of 128×64 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip. Because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like this miniature display for its crispness!

  1. Google around for the ostc or open source trimix computer

  2. That’s cool! Of course, now I want to build one of my own, but wouldn’t be able to test it for another six or seven months. ;)
