Arduino Uno Rev3

  Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328P (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz quartz crystal, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC ad ...

The Aurora Boxealis – A Color Sensing and Mirroring Project

Introduction Besides looking damned good on an otherwise bland and ordinary desk, this project is about more than just being attention grabbing eye candy.  It’s about demonstrating a small portion of our single board computer capabilities by hooking up a color sensor, RGB light strip, and enclosing it in a nice looking wooden enclosure.  We’re dubbing it the “aurora boxealis”, and it’s made to stand out fro ...

Monocle: View & Control IP Cameras with Alexa & Arduino

Monocle enables Alexa devices such as Echo Show/Spot & FireTV to view your network IP cameras & control them with a wireless PTZ controller. Story Amazon Alexa® (at least at the time of this writing) does not inherently support any direct integration with local/private network cameras running securely inside your network. Instead Alexa focuses on providing an infrastructure for third-party camera ma ...

Multiple mode Environmental Sensor Deck with MKR1000

Many fun environmental sensors need a hardware interrupt. With the MKR1000, you no longer need to choose! You get I2C, analog ins too! Story I love watching the weather, and I wanted to try to capture and graph it. Home weather stations let me see the details for "now", and sometimes tallies for the past hour, or day. I wanted to do more, and use an Arduino for the job. Everyone starts with Temperature and ...

Getting Started with Micro Python

In a previous blog, Using MicroPython for real-time software development, I examined the idea behind using MicroPython for real-time embedded software. Now, let’s examine some of the core pieces that developers need to understand to get started using MicroPython. The first step a developer interested in MicroPython must take before diving into a real-time embedded application is to select a supported develo ...

BeagleBone Logic Analyzer

Since I started this adventure in hardware I have wanted to get an logic analyzer. I have an older but good oscilloscope that only goes so far when it comes to digital logic signals. I could go for the Saleae, but if I am going to do that I would rather sprint for the higher end model which is an easy $400+. In the mean time I was on a quest to find a low cost option. Upon my travels of the interwebs I foun ...

Arduino based Vehicle Tracker using GPS and GSM

In our previous article, we have learned about “How to interface GPS module with Computer and How to make a GPS updated Clock”. In this project we are going one step ahead with GPS and going to track a vehicle using GPS and GSM. This Vehicle Tracking System can also be used for Accident Detection Alert System, Soldier Tracking System and many more, by just making few changes in hardware and software. Tracki ...

DIY Speedometer using Arduino and Processing Android App

In this project we make a Cool Speedometer for bikes or any automotives by using Arduino which broadcast the speed using Bluetooth to an Android application that we created using Processing. The complete project is powered by an 18650 Lithium cell and hence highly portable along with your vehicle. To spice it up a bit more I have added the option of charging your mobile phone as it displays your speed. Yes, ...
