The Santa Cam! An Arduino PIR Motion-Activated Camera System

The Santa Cam is sure to catch who is stealing your milk and cookies this holiday season! You can even use it for a photo booth this New Year's Eve! BOM: Arduino Uno DSLR camera with remote shutter jack 2.5mm TRS cable Rectifier diode Milk and cookies Why? You see, when I was little, my dad used to set up a video camera in the corner of the living room on Christmas Eve night, right near the milk and cookies ...

How to Use ADC in Arduino Uno?

In this tutorial we are introducing concept of ADC (Analog to Digital Conversion) in ARDUINO UNO. Arduino board has six ADC channels, as show in figure below. Among those any one or all of them can be used as inputs for analog voltage. The Arduino Uno ADC is of 10 bit resolution (so the integer values from (0-(2^10) 1023)). This means that it will map input voltages between 0 and 5 volts into integer values ...

How to Use Shift Register 74HC595 with Arduino Uno?

In ARDUINO we have 20 I/O pins, so we can program 20 pins of UNO to be used as either input or output. Although there are more pins on ATMEGA328P controller than on UNO, this is because while designing the board some pins are defaulted. Now for some applications we need more than 30 pins, say if we want to design a 5x5x5 LED CUBE, so for this we need 5x5+5=30pins. For such cases we use serial to parallel co ...

Color Detector using Arduino Uno

In this project we are going to interface TCS3200 color sensor with Arduino UNO. TCS3200 is a color sensor which can detect any number of colors with right programming. TCS3200 contains RGB (Red Green Blue) arrays. As shown in figure on microscopic level one can see the square boxes inside the eye on sensor. These square boxes are arrays of RGB matrix. Each of these boxes contain Three sensors, One is for s ...

Keypad Interfacing with Arduino Uno

In this tutorial we are going to interface a 4x4 (16 key) keypad with ARDUINO UNO. We all know keypad is one of the most important input devices used in electronics engineering. Keypad is the easiest and the cheapest way to give commands or instructions to an electronic system. Whenever a key is pressed in keypad module the Arduino Uno detects it and shoes the corresponding key on 16x2 LCD. [Also check: Key ...

Variable Power Supply By Arduino Uno

In this tutorial we will develop a 5V variable voltage source from Arduino Uno. For that we are going use ADC (Analog to Digital Conversion) and PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) feature. Some digital electronic modules like accelerometer work on voltage 3.3V and some work on 2.2V. Some even work on lower voltages. With this we cannot get a regulator for every one of them. So here we will make a simple circuit w ...

Programming an ATtiny w/ Arduino 1.6 (or 1.0)

This tutorial shows you how to program an ATtiny45, ATtiny85, ATtiny44 or ATtiny84 microcontroller using the Arduino software. These are small, cheap ($2-3) microcontrollers that are convenient for running simple programs. The ATtiny45 and ATtiny85 have eight legs and are almost identical, except that the ATtiny85 has twice the memory of the ATtiny45 and can therefore hold more complex programs. The ATtiny4 ...

Using an Arduino Uno R3 as a Game Controller

Naturally, the Uno does not natively support keyboard strokes, unlike it's Leonardo brother. Most of Google will tell you you need to do some firmware workarounds and ATMEGA reprogramming just to get it working and the entire ordeal is a mess. If you're like me, you've found that out just after buying one. Here is how to get around all that using a bit of Java coding. The ideal solution would be to purchase ...

HSM-20G Interface with Arduino Uno

The HSM-20G is an analog humidity and temperature sensor that outputs analog voltage respects to relative humidity and temperature. However from this sensor relative humidity is found along with temperature. Relative humidity is the percentage of moistures of airs for a particular temperature [1]. Feature: 1. Storage range: -20°C to 70°C 2. Operating range: 0°C to 50°C Application: HSM-20g is considered as ...

Servo Motor Simulation via Arduino UNO

Hey everyone. I hope you will be fine. As you know that last time, we had started Arduino UNO course and given you a brief introduction how to simulate the LED blinking via Arduino UNO and its implementation in proteus ISIS. Now, today we are going to implement Servo Motor Simulation via Arduino UNO in proteus ISIS. What is Servo Motor? With the help of servo motors you can position the motor shaft at a spe ...

A Simple Bat Detector based shield for the Arduino Uno

I've built a number of projects that have interfaced the output of the Simple Bat Detector with a microprocessor. The most recent was the BatLogger II. But I hadn't come up with an easy way for others to experiment with this idea ... until now. My friend, Frank, in Germany, had wanted to make a relatively inexpensive bat activity logger ... and he had come on the idea to do it using a Simple Bat Detector co ...
