Re-creating the "breathing" LED

呼吸灯的逆向工程

October 31, 2011

Perhaps it’s not surprising, but Apple has a patent on the iconic "breathing" pattern used for the sleep indicator LED on all their computers.

也许呼吸灯这东西没什么大不了的,然而苹果有一个专利关于用于指示电脑处于睡眠模式下LED亮灭的模式。

Recently — for a personal project — I wanted to see if I could replicate this effect. It turns out that I wasn’t alone. Ladyada tried to reverse engineer the pattern a few years ago. Unfortunately, she stopped short of providing anything — like code — that the lazy web surfing Arduino hacker might use to recreate the effect. That’s the purpose of this short tutorial.

最近有个个人项目,我想看看是不是能复制这个效果。事实上并不是我一个人这么做。Ladyada试着逆向工程这个几年前专利里提及的模式。不幸的是,她没有提供任何更进一步的东西,例如代码,那种慵懒的Arduino玩家可以用来创造这种效果的。这也是本教程的目的所在。

Digging Into the Math

挖掘数学根基

The Apple patent claims that the breathing pattern is a simple sinusoid, but observation of one’s own (heavy) breathing will show that the pattern is a little more complicated than that. Maybe a sine wave works for Apple, but it doesn’t look quite right to me. In my own breathing, I tend to ease in to a fast inhale, and stop suddenly before easing out to a fast exhale. Also, the period between inhalation and exhalation happens to be shorter than the period between exhalation and the next inhalation. This is not a simple sinusoid, as the oscilloscope plot from Ladyada’s own investigations will attest.

苹果的专利声称呼吸模式只是简单的类正弦函数,但是据观察一个人(深)呼吸的模式比这个略复杂。也许一个正弦波对苹果是足够的,但是无法满足我的要求。在我呼吸的过程中,我趋向于不自在的快速吸气,然后突然停下来在#@%×(@#×(&%(@#%(。。。同时,从吸气到呼气之间的时间长度显得比呼气到下一次吸气之间的短。这不是简单的正弦,就如来自Ladyada(一个技术大姐)的示波器波形所揭示的。

A commenter on Ladyada’s blog suggested that the pattern is probably more accurately modeled by f(x) = esin(x). Plotting this equation gives the following:

一个在Ladyada博客上一则评论认为这种闪烁模式能更精确的用 f(x) = esin(x)所建模。下图是该方程的图像:

Plot of exp(sin(x))

Compare the curvature characteristics of this plot with the simple sinusoid below:

对比这条曲线和正弦曲线的差异:

Plot of sin(x)

The plot of f(x) = esin(x) has wider "troughs" (periods between inhale and exhale) and narrower "peaks" (periods between exhale and inhale), more accurately matching natural breathing patterns. As a simple experiment, try breathing "sinusoidally" and you’ll see how unnatural it feels.

 

Turning it Into Code

For my own experimentation, I used the ubiquitous Arduino. The Arduino supports analog output using pulse-width modulation (PWM) mapped to integer values from 0 to 255. To recreate the breathing LED, this means manipulating the original equation f(x) = esin(x) such that the amplitude fits within the PWM range.

I took enough math in school to know that the minima and maxima of any equation occur at critical points in the equation, where the derivative of that equation is either 0 or its not differentiable. Beyond that, I left it to Wolfram Alpha to do the hard work. It turns out that the minimum of the wave is 1/e, and the maximum is e. Using this information to adjust the amplitude of the equation such that it fits within the 0 to 255 range gives the following:

The final equation

Swap x for the number of seconds that have elapsed, and map the above equation to PWM output on any supported Arduino pin, and you have the beginnings of a breathing pattern. The problem is that the frequency may be too high or low (depending on your preference), and so the breathing will appear fast or slow. Easy enough: Multiply x by any value to adjust the frequency. I like π/2.

Finally, 1 - e, and 255/(e - 1/e) are constants, and can be pre-calcuated to reduce overhead. The final Arduino sketch is as follows (with the LED connected to pin 11, a suitable resistor in series, yadda, yadda …):

#include <math.h>

void setup()
{
  pinMode(11, OUTPUT);
}

void loop()
{
  float val = (exp(sin(millis()/2000.0*PI)) - 0.36787944)*108.0;
  analogWrite(11, val);
}

Gratuitous Video

And, in case you don’t have an Arduino handy, here’s a short video of the final effect:

 

Conclusion

You might be asking: Is it really that big of a difference? Wouldn’t a simple sinusoid suffice? To answer the latter question: yes. To answer the former: the difference is noticeable, but only slightly. Steve Jobs was a notorious perfectionist. I like to think that he would’ve cared about such things.
