Heart2Heart

Heart2Heart is an experiment in computer to computer dialogue. The objective of the experiment is to explore data transmission and data corruption via two computers that communicate using frequencies. The project was done in collaboration with Andreas Adam.

We programmed a computer, the Sender, to emit a sequence of sounds which can be translated into words by a second computer, the Receiver. The sender uses three frequencies that are above the set threshold, to ensure that the message is audible via a microphone. The Receiver computer uses these same frequencies and converts them to letters. This is achieved through binary representations of letters. But the translation may not be accurate. This can be conducted multiple times until the original message is totally distorted.
