Project Description

The Automatic Guitar Tuner is a mobile, compact device that mounts onto the head of a guitar and automatically tunes the guitar by rotating each peg. We designed this device to operate quickly and accurately, providing a convenient method of tuning for guitarists. Implemented as a real-time embedded system, our project consists of a microphone that detects the sound generated by the guitar strings as well as a control system with mechanical and electrical components that function to turn the guitar pegs. Due to its efficiency, this device could especially benefit beginning guitarists who haven't built up the necessary ear training to tune their instrument correctly.
