MQ-8 Hydrogen Gas Sensor Circuit Built with an Arduino

In this project, we will go over how to build a hydrogen gas sensor circuit with an arduino. The hydrogen gas sensor we will use is the MQ-8 sensor. This is a sensor that is sensitive to effects of hydrogen gas. Hydrogen gas (H2), at room temperature and under standard pressure conditions, is tasteless, odorless, and colorless. Hydrogen gas is receiving very special attention now because hydrogen is being u ...

Simple Solar Power using arduino

Simple Solar Power Light contains energy. When light hits a conductor (or semiconductor) some of the energy is translated into moving electrons, creating current. We can harness the current using solar cells (aka photovoltaic cells). When the sun shines on a solar cell, the current output is mostly constant, which is known as direct current, DC. DC is easy to use and great for charging batteries and powerin ...

Playing with analog-to-digital converter on Arduino Due

Today I’m going to present some of more advanced capabilities of ADC built in ATSAM3X8E – the heart of Arduino Due. I like the Arduino platform. It makes using complex microcontrollers much simpler and faster. Lets take for example the analog-to-digital converter. To configure it even on Atmega328 (Arduino Uno/Duemilanove) you must understand and set correct values in 4 registers. And it can be much more in ...

DIY Turntable using arduino

You always wanted to be a Disc-Jockey. You know nothing about beats, delays or mixing but, damn, scratching is like the coolest thing ever invented! If this is also your case, follow this instructable to build a low-fi DJ set: the DIY Turntable as featured on Gizmodo and Engadget, and take the chance to recycle your old cassette player into a new cool instrument. Step 1: Materials Minimum: - Cassette player ...

Automation Board

The Automation Board is 100% compatible with the Arduino Uno. This way it allows the enjoyment of all the easy programming and libraries that Arduino provides. It's a strong and versatile board, with multiples resources to develop a fully automation system. The Automation Board dispenses the use of power sources. Thanks to a power source soldered onto the board itself, it is supplied directly from the elect ...

Arduino-enabled Patron Interaction Counting using arduino

Using the Arduino development board (http://arduino.cc) has become a very popular way to create hardware prototypes that bridge the divide between the physical world and the Internet. This article outlines how to use an Arduino, some off-the-shelf electronic parts, the Processing programming language, and Google Documents to create a push-button reference desk transaction tally device. The design: plugged i ...

Make a Fire Breathing Animetronic Pony from FurReal Butterscotch or S’Mores usnig arduino

For Maker Faire Detroit 2011, I displayed a hack I made to a FurReal Friends Butterscotch Pony. My fellow LVL1 Hackers and I had taken control of the motor control system of the toy and added a flame thrower to it.  It seemed to go over really well with the crowd, so I am putting up the information for anyone to make there own.  It was a blast to make and I hope everyone has as much fun remaking it.  Just r ...

GPS Tracker for Alzheimer’s Patients

First a thank you to my Team members Sean Halloran and Gvozden Suvajlo, they came up with this idea and executed it, this project would not be possible without their ideas and skills. The GPS tracking device is composed of a micro controller, GPS module, cell module, and batteries all housed in a 3D printed case. The micro controller is programmed to communicate with both the cell module and GPS module. Whe ...

Real-Time Energy Monitor with Arduino and LabVIEW using arduino

We present the candidature of Mr. Michele Mancini for the TiDiGino Contest. He proposes us a recent application with Arduino: Real-Time Energy Monitor This is a simple power meter to analize the current consuming in a house using the led indicator of a house energy meter. Reading the red led of a home energy counters the system detects the corrent consumption in a house. It is a noninvasive method, not cut ...

Using an RGB LED to Detect Colours using arduino

I am going to show you how you can use an RGB LED and a Cds photocell as a colour sensor for a micro-controller. I will illustrate the method to retrieve a colour using Arduino, and I will show you a how you can verify the colour being scanned with a small Processing sketch.We will be making this colour sensor on a breadboard, but it is easily transferred onto a prototyping board, and for tho ...

Starting with ATTiny13

As any beginner electronics hobbyist I have recently came to conclusion that using Arduino(or even Mega328) for small projects is neither cost-effective or educational (I’ll explain why later). Another reason for writing this article is that I came across few ATTiny13A-SSU chips @ less than $0.90 each, which is even lower the official retail price, so I just had to buy 5 of them, although I didn’t know at t ...
