The SMARTune self tuning guitar system is being developed by The Tune Squad at Calvin College for use by musicians who are eager for innovation in guitar tuning systems. The SMARTune system will be integrated into the body of a bass guitar and will provide the added functionality of automatic tuning. The team is striving to provide an intuitive and reliable system for musicians from beginners to professionals.
The team has finalized the prototype, and presented it at Calvin's Engineering Senior Design Night. The system was able to properly tune the guitar, with two standard tuners used to double-check the tuning.
By the end of the year, the team will deliver a fully functional prototype, technical documentation, and a detailed final report. Our final report is located here: Final Report
