Computer Controlled Robot using Arduino

After designing this line follower robot using arduino uno, I have developed this computer controlled robot. It can be controlled via the computer and we can use specific keyboard keys to move it. It runs over serial communication which we have already discussed in our previous project - PC Controlled Home Automation. Components Required Arduino UNO DC Motor Laptop Motor Driver L293D 9 Volt Battery Battery ...

Temperature Controlled Fan using Arduino

In this arduino based project, we are going to control DC fan speed according to the room temperature and show these parameter changes on a 16x2 LCD display. It is accomplished by the data communications between Arduino, LCD, DHT11 sensor Module and DC fan that is controlled by using PWM. PWM is a technique by using which we can control voltage. Circuit Components Arduino UNO DHT11 sensor DC Fan 2n2222 tran ...

GSM Based Home Automation using Arduino

Mobile phone is a revolutionary invention of the century. It was primarily designed for making and receiving calls & text messages, but it has become the whole world after the Smart phone comes into the picture. In this project we are building a home automation system, where one can control the home appliances, using the simple GSM based phone, just by sending SMS through his phone. In this project, no ...

How to establish UART communication between ATmega8 and Arduino Uno?

Here we are going to establish a communication between an ATmega8 microcontroller and Arduino Uno. The communication established here is UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter) type. It’s serial communication. By this serial communication data can be shared between two controllers, which is a required in various embedded system applications. In embedded systems we must have basic knowledge about ...

Arduino Solar Day Night Controller

Introduction This is an Arduino controlled light sensing switching unit. Its main use is to control solar lights to turn on when it is dark outside, but it can work in many more applications. This guide will walk you through every aspect of the building process. Prior knowledge of the Arduino unit is not necessary since the code and schematic have been supplied for you. This project would be fairly complex ...

Smoke Detector using MQ2 Gas Sensor and Arduino

Smoke Detectors are very useful in detecting smoke or fire in buildings, and so are the important safety parameters. In this DIY session, we are going to build a Smoke Detector Circuit which not only sense the smoke in the air but also reads and displays the level of Smoke in the Air in PPM (parts per million). This circuit triggers the Buzzer when Smoke level becomes higher than 1000 ppm, this threshold va ...

Sensing Humidity With The SHT15

The SHT15 is a digital humidity sensor that outputs a fully calibrated humidity reading. And… because what we are measuring is actually relative humidity, and relative humidity being relative to temperature, the SHT15 has a builtin digital thermometer. This makes things much easier to work with than sensors without a thermometer onboard. You can pick one up from sparkFun here. Hooking it up The SHT15 uses a ...

MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor, Breakout Board + Arduino

lot has happened since our last article was published and to celebrate the continuance of bildr we’ll be playing with the MQ-3 Alcohol Gas Sensor. Coupled with the SparkFun Gas Sensor Breakout Board, connecting the MQ-3 to your Arduino is a breeze. The MQ-3 is a heater-driven alcohol sensor that outputs an analog signal (usually interpreted somewhere between 150 and 1023 depending on how long you let the se ...

Clear polycarbonate enclosures using Arduino

So about a year ago I decided that I wanted to get into AVR microcontrollers. After ordering an AVR pocket programmer from Sparkfun , I soon realized that it was too delicate to be sitting on a workbench full of wire clippings. I knew I needed a small enclosure to put it in, but couldn't find anything I really liked. My final decision was to make my own. This instructable will explain the steps necessary to ...

Make Telecran with Arduino

I came across a bunch of stepper motors and I have since been looking for a project to do with the kids. An old Telecran (French for Etch-a-Sketch) later, we are in business ! Optional parts: - a sensor shield + 2 push buttons - a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck - a WiiChuck adapter And also: - hot glue gun Step 1: Mechanics The mechanical part has been done with some Fishertechniks parts. I had to drill into the ste ...

Solar-Oriented, Arduino-Powered Clock

This is a clock designed to keep accurate time (independent of atomic or GPS), display local sunrise, sunset and solar noon, and also adjust itself for daylight savings time. I wanted the clock to be easy to use and be flexible. The setting functions are menu-driven, you set each parameter one digit at a time (with live data validation) and you can abandon changes if you want. You can have 12 or 24-hour tim ...
