CARduino – Arduino-Powered, LabVIEW-Controlled Vehicle

The CARduino is a remote-operated vehicle which is controlled by a controller attached to a computer running LabVIEW. The vehicle is powered by the Arduino, and can be expanded upon through the addition of sensors or other devices. Using LabVIEW, one can easily modify the controller program and expand the features of the CARduino with very little or no programming experience. Two different versions of the v ...

Arduino Throttle Body Syncronization Shield

A common Motorcycle maintenance task is to synchronize the throttle bodies on the engine to smooth out any rough idle.  This is done by monitoring the vacuum on each throttle body and using the idle screw to make the adjustment. While this sounds rather advanced, with a little knowledge, a few standard tools to access the engine, and a TBS tool (Throttle Body Synchronization); the maintenance item really is ...

Troubleshoot your car battery with ATtiny

Last winter I experienced some problems with my car battery. I knew that it was about time to replace it so off I went to buy a new one. This fact reminded me of an old article about a car battery/charging system diagnostics kit I had seen in one of those 1980s electronics magazines. That magazine’s battery monitor relied on an IC that had several analog comparators arranged in a way similar to the ones in ...

Light Seeking R.C Car Hack (with Arduino) using arduino

Creating a robotics platform from scratch takes allot of work and a few dollars. Buying a ready built one is easy but costs allot of money (at least for me). So instead I decided to piggy back off of the companies who make remote control cars. This is a great because it comes ready made with two h-bridges and a steering mechanism already built. The cost of the whole project is probably $90 if you don’t have ...

Intro to Model Airplane Autopilot

I am twenty years old. I picked up my arduino for the first time this Christmas, and I've been keeping busy on my arduino applications so that I can bring you this instructable. I hope that it helps!!! The purpose of this project was to build a stepping stone from remote controlled flight to completely autonomous flight. This initially seemed like a daunting process, but by breaking it up it becomes managea ...

Arduino traffic lights

I made this project on the same night that my Arduino Duemilanove arrived from Cool Components.  After being an Instructables member for about a year I though it was time I should contribute. There is another Arduino traffic light project similar to this, but it is much more complex; mine is aimed at beginners and children (who already know the basics). As a beginner to the Arduino I had spent a fair a ...
