Simple Robotic Arm Project Using Arduino

Nowadays, manual labor is being reduced at big scale industries and factories to increase efficiency and gain profit by installing robots that can do repetitive works. A onetime installation of such a device may cost a huge amount, but in the long run, will turn out to be more profitable that manual labor. Out of the lot, a simple robotic arm is one of the most commonly installed machines. We are introducin ...

A Smart Night Lamp for Kids

You can download our e-book ‘Learn Arduino from Scratch’ from this link Few weeks ago I heard my nephew (aged 7) complaining of the dark at night. Basically he was afraid ? So I decided to put knowledge into practice and build a night lamp for kids. Since the project was intended for kids, I thought of making the lamp change color every now and then. It should also be sensitive to light so that if the room ...

Remote LED Mood Setter

Set LED RGB light Scenes remotely Things used in this project Hardware components Arduino MKR1000 × 1 Breadboard (generic) × 1 RGB Diffused Common Cathode × 1 Story Using MKR1000 to control an RGB LED device. In our shortened example we will use a single RGB LED. In real world we would attach the RGB channels to a RGB Amplified or other like device. We are hoping to demonstrate how you can start using Ardui ...

Arduino Gear Motor Interface Using IC L293D

In this article, we are publishing a project which explains different aspects of Arduino-Gear motor interface. Gear motor is a specially designed DC motor whose gear assembly helps in increasing the torque and reducing the speed. Compared to a normal DC motor, maximum rpm a gear motor can produce is less. But they have the advantage that by using the correct combination of gears, its rpm can be reduced to a ...

Building a PIN Diode Geiger Counter

Exactly 30 years ago a great disaster struck the region of Chernobyl: a nuclear accident occurred that released a large quantity of radioactive particles into the atmosphere. And it is only five years ago that, with the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, a second similar catastrophic event has taken place. These anniversaries did not directly let me build a PIN Photodiode based Geiger Counter, it is more o ...

Water Level Indicator Using Arduino & Ultrasonic Sensor

Water Level Indicator Using Arduino Wireless Water Level Indicator Using Ultrasonic sensor & Arduino is an amazing and very useful project. The objective of this project is to notify the user the amount of water that is present in the overhead water tank. This project can be further enhanced to control the water level in the tank by turning it ON, when the water level is LOW, and turning it OFF when the ...

Researchers develop LED covering full visible light spectrum

Researchers have developed the first standard LED covering the full visible light, in collaboration with Nichia Corporation. LED and OLED lighting, which is generally called solid-state lighting (SSL), is becoming more common as the next generation lighting. Evaluations of total luminous flux (a performance index for lighting) and color are important for SSL, and to evaluate those values, it is indispensabl ...

Limb Shaker

A stepper motor shakes a limb to frighten away birds and squirrels. It is under the control of the MKR1000. Things used in this project Hardware components DC motor (generic) × 1 Arduino MKR1000 × 1 Story The project uses a stepper motor to pull down on a fig tree limb to frighten away birds and squirrels. That is, shake the limb. I know that shaking a limb frightens birds and squirrels well, because I have ...

DC Motor Speed Control Using Arduino & PWM

Speed control of DC motor with PC Interface is an easy DIY project. In this project DC motor’s speed is controlled by sending the command through PC. Arduino is directly connected to PC through the USB cable and command is given to Arduino on serial monitor of the Arduino IDE. Motor is connected to a transistor, and the base of transistor is connected to PWM pin of Arduino and motors speed is varied accordi ...

RFID Computer login

I wanted a simple way of quickly logging on to my computer without having to typing my password in and did not want to have no security either. There are various products on the market that would solve this problem from fingerprint readers to proximity dongles but i decided to see what i could knock up with parts i mainly already had. Looking in my micro stuff i had a RC522 RFID tag reader 3.3v : Also an 3. ...
