DIY Low Cost Arduino Mobile Development Platform

I have wanted to build my own robot for awhile now. But after many tried and failed attempts, I was losing hope that may ever happen. I discovered that there wasn't a small, robust, super easy to add-on to, robot that was within my budget to get. After hours of research and many robot kits later, i decided to build one from scratch. This includes building the base and electronics myself. I was always a fan ...

Control an iPod with the Arduino

This tutorial will describe a way of controlling an iPod remote, and thus, an easy way of getting some music and sound out of your Arduino project. The remote we used was an unofficial remote I found on the worldwide auction site for around 10 USD, an opto-isolator can be found in your local electronics store. We used a TIL116 opto-isolator between the Arduino and the remote to safely send signals in betwee ...

How to Send Message from GSM Module using Arduino

The GSM stands for Global System for Mobile communications.  This is a global standard which is followed by the GSM modules inside the cellular phones which enables them to be connected with any mobile network around the globe. In certain applications the microcontroller based systems has to be connected with the GSM network which will enable a user to control the system by sending messages or making a call ...

HSM-20G temperature & humidity analog sensor + Nokia5110 LCD

Temperature and humidity measurement are always a nice addition to hobbyist projects. In my previous post, I’ve discussed the DHT11 sensor, which is capable of measuring both temperature and humidity. They are digital sensor and provide calibrated outputs with temperature and relative humidity. I’ve also demonstrated how to interface with Arduino and display it on 1602 LCD. Unlike DHT series, HSM -20G is an ...

Arduino and Android Projects for the Evil Genius

Since this book was written, Arduino 1.0 was released and Google has changed the Open Accessory standard a lot. At the start of December 2011 Arduino 1.0 was released. This changed a few things, requiring all third-party libraries to be updated. This hasn’t happened yet for the Android Open Accessory ADK. So until this is updated, please use Arduino 023. This is still available for download from the main Ar ...

How to Make Phonecall From GSM Module Using Arduino

One can use a cell phone with any cellular networks around the globe if the proper SIM card is inserted in it. This is possible because there is some device inside the cell phone which follows a global standard enabling them to connect with different cellular networks. This standard is called Global System for Mobile communications (GSM). The mobile phones have built in GSM modules which then be used by the ...
