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 ...

Pet Food Dispenser featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will use a 4Duino and several IR sensors to create a simple pet food dispenser. 4Duino checks whether a food tray contains enough food or not. It is programmed to read IR values from each sensor. These values change depending on the amount of food in the container.  The feeding time can be set by the user via the graphical user interface. The device continuously checks the time from an N ...

Stock Monitoring featuring 4Duino-24

In this project, we will use several IR sensors to check if an item from an inventory box is present or not. This project makes use of a 4Duino-24 to check whether an item is present or missing from the inventory. The 4Duino uses its analog pins to read the values from each IR sensor. This reading value changes depending on whether or not the item is present. The 4Duino is set to send most recent status to ...

Fingerprint Based Biometric Voting Machine using Arduino

We all are quite familiar with Electronic Voting Machines, where your vote gets registered electronically and you don’t need to use ballot paper to vote in election. Today security is a major concern and it also needs to be ensured that someone can’t vote twice, so this problem can be solved by introducing Finger Print Based Voting, where a person can be authorized based on his finger Print. This will also ...

Arduino Motion Detector using PIR Sensor

Detecting motions or movements has always been important in most projects. With the help of the PIR Sensor it has become very easy to detect human/animal movements. In this project we will learn how we can interface a PIR Sensor with a microcontroller like Arduino. We will interface an Arduino with PIR module and blink a LED and beep a Buzzer whenever a movement is detected. The following components will be ...

Arduino Based Digital Ammeter

Ammeter is used to measure current flow through any load or device. Here in this Arduino Ammeter, we will explain about measuring of current by using ohm’s law. It will be quite interesting as well as a good application of basic science that we studied in our school days. All of us are well known of ohm’s law, It states that “the potential difference between two poles or terminals of an conductor is directl ...

Interfacing Hall Effect Sensor with Arduino

Sensors have always been a vital component in any Project. These are the ones which convert the real real-time environmental data into digital/variable data so that it can be processed by electronics. There are many different types of sensors available in the market and you can select one based on your requirements. In this project we will learn how to use a Hall sensor a.k.a Hall effect sensor with Arduino ...

ATtiny85 EMF Detector

Story This is a simple tutorial to create an EMF detector. You can use Arduino for this job, but is better use a microcontroller called Attiny85. It is possible program it throe the Arduino interface. What is a Magnetic Field [from Wikipedia] An electromagnetic field (also EMF or EM field) is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinit ...

CyDuino : An Arduino Dev Board with Lots of Goodies

Story We (most of us) really like Arduino because it's possible to make cheap clones, lots of libraries, examples, forum support and community out there. Outside Arduino world, I like Cypress PSoC for some of its cool features like Graphical IDE, APIs, great features and understandable documentation. I have bunch of PSoC® 4 CY8CKIT-049 4xxx Prototyping Kits. The first half of this kit has CY7C65211 device, ...

A Strange Attraction. Various Hall Effect Sensors

I came pretty close to calling this one “Magnets, How do they work?” But I thought that might confuse more than it would amuse. All jokes aside, hall effect sensors are pretty cool, and also pretty simple to use, but there are a few types you may not know about and I figured it would be a good time to introduce them incase your next project was In need of sensing some magnetic forces. If you don’t know, a h ...
