Bike Turn Signal & Brake Light Handlebars

This project was inspired by a very cool kickstarter called Helios Bars. Essentially what this project does, is put an arduino, LEDs, and buttons into your bike handlebars. The LEDs can be used as turn signals, brake lights, or display ambient colors while riding. It's fun, cheap, and a good introductory to LEDs and arduino. The coolest thing though is that the project can be completely enclosed in the hand ...

Another Arduino Traffic light

After working with the arduino and not knowing what the heck I'm doing I made Another simple traffic light. I looked around the web to find one that looks about normal and came across none. They seemed too fast. So, I found and modded some code to make this work. The coding is pretty simple. Step 1: The Parts 1 - Arduino (Obvious) 1 - Breadboard 6 - 270 ohm resistors 2 - Red LED 2 - Yellow LED 2 - Green LED ...

Autonomous Arduino Car

My questions for the Make-to-Learn Youth Contest :) What did you make? This goal of this project was to take commonly available electronic equipment and create an inexpensive, self-controlled vehicle. In simpler terms, this is an attempt at basic autonomy. It uses an arduino logic board coupled with a cheap remote control car along with a 9 volt power supply to accomplish this. How did you make it? The idea ...

Drifter – Arduino controlled RC car

Drifter is based on a cheap RC toy car I found at Toys'r'us, named 'Fast lane Monster Drift'.  I think it's the same model Frits has been used in an episode of TLIHR. It doesn't work well, you get what you pay for. But it is a good hacking platform. There is no much space left for additional electronics, but a Arduino Pro Mini fits very well on the rear axle. The onboard electronic is as usual very primitiv ...

Simple Parking Sensor using Arduino

My car has only parking sensor for the Reverse, so when I enter the Garage there is no way to know if I am close enough to the wall to allow the door to close or too close that I can hit the wall with the car. So, decided to build a parking sensor that will be fixed on the garage wall. One of the limitations that I got is that there is no power nearby, so the parking sensor had to be battery powered. Starte ...

Traffic Lights Beginner Arduino Project

This is a beginners project for the Arduino. I am using the Arduino Uno but should work with little or no modification on other arduino models. Setting up the hardware is very easy. This project is more of a training tool for learning how to program a timer list while listening for a button press. Parts you will need. - Arduino - Solder-less Breadboard - 10 LEDs --- 2 Red --- 2 Yellow --- 2 Green --- 2 Smal ...

Steering Wheel Drive R/C Car with Arduino

IP Control Car was launched in 2001. I make the similar function car utilizing commercialized products. The concept of Car No.02 is to utilize commercialized products, and I am an amateur in electrical. So, do not blame me that the system is not sophisticated, i.e. servo & speed controller control system and webcam system are not integrated, or 4 different types of batteries are used for R/C Car(7.2V), ...
