Magnetometer Parking Sensor

The objective of our project was to develop a wireless sensor device to be used for detecting motor vehicles, along with their direction of travel. The sensor is to be used in a larger system to monitor parking lot traffic by counting ins and outs of vehicles, thus showing which lots are full or not via a website and mobile application. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31233,31234"] The sensor is a m ...

Balance Beam Controller

The purpose of our final project was to create an unstable system that would allow us to investigate classical control design methods by controlling the system using a microcomputer. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31225,31226"] This was accomplished by creating a teeter-totter that pivoted around a central fulcrum and was controlled by a servo. The beam acted as a track for a ping pong ball to roll ...

Four Channel Temperature Controller

For our final project, we designed a 4-channel temperature controller using PID control. The system was designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of four individual channels by applying 120V to heating elements using on/off switching. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31204,31205"] This switching was indirectly manipulated by the micro-controller using relays. Data was continuously collected fr ...

Interfacing Flame Sensor with Arduino to Build a Fire Alarm System

In this article we interface Flame Sensor with Arduino and learn all the steps to build Fire Alarm System by using Arduino and flame sensor. Flame sensor module has photodiode to detect the light and op-amp to control the sensitivity. It is used to detect fire and provide HIGH signal upon the detection. Arduino reads the signal and provides alert by turning on buzzer and LED. Flame sensor used here is an IR ...

Analog Speedometer Using Arduino and IR Sensor

Measuring the speed/rpm of a Vehicle or a motor has always been a fascinating project to try. In this project, we are going to build a Analog Speedometer using the Arduino. We will use IR Sensor module to measure the speed. There are other ways/sensors for this, like hall sensor to measure speed, but using an IR sensor is easy because IR sensor module is very common device and we can get it easily from the ...

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 ...

Ultrasonic Blind Walking Stick Using Arduino

Ultrasonic Blind Walking Stick According to the WHO, about 30 million people are estimated to be permanently blind worldwide. These people are totally dependent on others. They even cannot walk on their own. We have created designed and built an “Ultrasonic Blind Walking Stick” device which will help blind people to walk with ease independently. As a simpler version, we have used only one ultrasonic sensor ...

Automatic Railway Gate Control Using Arduino & IR Sensor

About a million people have died over the past 5 years in unmanned railway crossings all over the world. At least 1/3rd of the railway crossings are unmanned due to their remote placement and less traffic. The Automatic Railway Gate Control System using IR Sensor & Arduino focuses on systematic traffic control of railway gates that are both manned and unmanned. This project will not only make the system ...

TVOC and CO2 Measurement using Arduino and CCS811 Air Quality Sensor

Sadly, in the name of progress, we have polluted the air, water, soil and the food we eat”. So monitoring the air quality is very crucial now days because of pollution. For designing an air quality monitoring system we need durable and reliable air quality sensor. Although there are many Air Quality parameters but the most important are CO2 and TVOC. So for sensing CO2 and TVOC, we are using CCS811 Air Qual ...

Auto Leveling Laser Cross using Arduino

So this Lazy Old Geek purchased a Laser Cross. I created a manual leveling Laser Cross to use for aligning stuff on my drill press: http://www.instructables.com/id/ManualLevelingLaserCross/ Well, being a Geek I decided to make an automated platform that adjusts automatically with an Arduino. Well, the picture may look a little scary but I’ll break it down into little bitty parts. Step 1: Parts Lists Parts L ...
