Arduino Based Vehicle Accident Alert System using GPS, GSM and Accelerometer

In our previous tutorials, we have learned about How to interface GPS module with Computer, how to build a Arduino GPS Clock and how to Track vehicle using GSM and GPS.  Here in this project, we are going to build a Arduino based vehicle accident alert system using GPS, GSM and accelerometer. Accelerometer detects the sudden change in the axes of vehicle and GSM module sends the alert message on your Mobile ...

ESP12e + OLED display – a try to make a smartwatch

Description Recently I bought two ESP12e, wanted to see how those IoT things work. One thing I know for sure, they don't tolerate 12V 1A ;) yep fired one by accident ... I left with one working, trying to figure out what should I build with it. In the meantime was wondering should I by a smartwatch, do I really need one? What would I use it for etc... then start googling about it, check some stores at net, ...

transmission: A Creativity Measurement System

It can be too easy to get stuck overthinking your ideas and letting your gears grind without making any progress. As makers, designers, engineers, hobbyists, etc. it is crucial for us to get out of our heads and sketch out our ideas as they come. It takes practice, but ultimately the more we sketch, the more we can create and the better we can share our ideas. Inspired by Craighton Berman's Pencil Sharpener ...

Interfacing Accelerometer to Arduino

In this article, we are going to interface the GY-521 accelerometer with Arduino. The GY-521 has an InvenSense MPU6050 chip which contains a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyro meter. This makes it a 6 DOF IMU (6 degrees of freedom inertial measurement unit). The chip also includes a 16-bit analog to digital converter on each channel and a DMP (Digital Motion Processor) unit. The DMP unit is responsible ...

Accelerometer Controlled Robot

Most of industrial robots are still programmed using the typical teaching process, through the use of the robot teach pendant. In this paper is proposed an accelerometer-based system to control an industrial robot using two low-cost and small 3-axis wireless accelerometers. These accelerometers are attached to the human arms, capturing its behavior (gestures and postures). An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) ...

Arduino Esplora Accelerometer

This sketch shows you how to read the values from the accelerometer. To see it in action, open the Arduino serial monitor on your computer and tilt the board. You'll see the accelerometer values for each axis change as you tilt the board. Circuit Only your Arduino Esplora is needed for this example. Connect the Esplora to your computer with a USB cable and open the Arduino's Serial Monitor. Accelerometer to ...

Arduino datalogging accelerometer with µ-SD storage

Thanks to Will Greiman's Fat16 library for the Arduino, I finally got a useful version of this datalogger working! Here's the schematic: And here's the code. The code is highly configurable: it can save raw A/D values or converted values, it allows software-defined gain, it can collect for a set time or until user input, and of course the collection interval is user-defined. It also includes a "DEBUG" mode, ...

Accelerometer Table using Arduino Esplora

This example simplifies the task of collecting data from the Esplora's accelerometer and graphing it with your computer. The Esplora sends keypresses to a connected computer about the state of the accelerometer. If you open a spreadsheet application, you can log the data from the accelerometer. To start and stop the datalogging, press the down pushbutton. The Esplora's LED will indicate the state of the log ...

Window Painting Robot (arduino, processing, accelerometer)

The idea for this project came from one of my favorite 'ibles: the polargraph. I loved the drawing style and thought how cool would it be to do this on the side of a building? Unfortunately the challenges to setting up such a large polargraph on a student budget pushed me to find an alternate solution, and thus started the window painting robot! This is a fairly simple robot that uses two neodymium magnets ...
