DIY Arduino Weather Station using Nokia Display

Learn to Build Arduino Weather Station using DHT11, Soil Sensor, and Nokia Display In this project tutorial, we are going to make an Arduino weather station using 2 sensors; FC-28 soil moisture sensor to measure the moisture and the DHT22 sensor to measure the temperature, humidity and the heat index. All the measured parameters (with the help of sensors) will be displayed using Nokia 5110 LCD. Before we pr ...

USB to RS485 converter

Testing of sensors with RS485 using PC without proper interface is not possible. Since RS232 interfaces are very rare, the interface should be hooked to USB. The interface between USB and RS485 can be soldered with one of the many FTDI interfaces with added RS485 driver, or bought as assembled module. There is always the third option. I made it from scratch. I took smallest STM32F0 with USB and UART interfa ...

DIY Mini Quadcopter with 3D-Printed Frame and Custom Firmware

I wanted to try my hand at a true "DIY" project, designing and building my own micro quadcotper frame and writing my own firmware in C++.  In this post I will describe the frame and build; in my next post I will talk about the firmware. Excluding stuff I had lying around the shop, (heat-shrink tubing, EC-3 connectors, velcro, cable ties, etc.) the cost came to just under $170: 3D-printed frame "free"! Fligh ...

IBM scientists achieve storage memory breakthrough

The current memory landscape spans from venerable DRAM to hard disk drives to ubiquitous flash. But in the last several years PCM has attracted the industry's attention as a potential universal memory technology based on its combination of read/write speed, endurance, non-volatility and density. For example, PCM doesn't lose data when powered off, unlike DRAM, and the technology can endure at least 10 milli ...

DC Motor Speed Control using GY 521 Gyro/Accelerometer and Arduino

In this article, we are going to control two motors by using the GY-521 accelerometer module. The speed of the motor will increase or decrease upon moving the GY-521 module up or down. On moving the Gy-521 towards the downside, the speed of the first motor will decrease and the speed of the other motor will increase; while on moving the GY-521 towards the upward side, the speed of the second motor will decr ...

Interfacing 8×8 LED Matrix with Arduino

LED matrix displays can be used to display almost anything. Most modern LED sign boards uses various types of matrix boards with controllers. In this tutorial we are going to interface a single color 8×8 LED matrix with Arduino and display a few characters in it. 8×8 matrix consists of 64 dots or pixels. There is a LED for each pixel and these LEDs are connected to total of 16 pins. You can identify the pin ...
