Gestured Controlled Smart Home

Not only this project has all the Smart Home features but it also includes MYO gesture control, allowing control of lights with your arm. Story Home Automation is the biggest domestic technological improvement of this generation, toe to toe with drones. It can provide full control of every piece of hardware in a house, if done well: from light control to preparing coffee at a specific hour of the day, key-l ...

A DIY Smart Insole to Check Your Pressure Distribution

The smart insole collects foot pressure data in real-time. Through Thinger.io the information is fed into a system that visualizes the data. Story Pressure measurement is already used in a variety of situations. It provides information about gait mechanics and has a wide range of applications, i.e. in clinical situations and in sports. In this project the sensors are used to gain insight about weight distri ...

DC Motor Speed Control using GY 521 Gyro/Accelerometer and Arduino

In this article, we are going to control two motors by using the GY-521 accelerometer module. The speed of the motor will increase or decrease upon moving the GY-521 module up or down. On moving the Gy-521 towards the downside, the speed of the first motor will decrease and the speed of the other motor will increase; while on moving the GY-521 towards the upward side, the speed of the second motor will decr ...

Project: Gesture Controlled Mouse (Air Mouse) Using Arduino & Accelerometer

AIR Mouse is also called gesture-controlled mouse and it works based on hand gesture. In this project an accelerometer is used for measuring the tilt of hand in X and Y direction and moves the cursor according the tilt. In the project two types of circuit are used, one is the transmitter circuit and other is the receiver circuit. Transmitter circuit makes use of MPU6050 series of accelerometer, which is con ...

How to Build an Air Guitar With Arduino, Aka the AIRduino Guitar

The idea here is to build a wearable virtual guitar that is to be controlled with two hands much like playing Air Guitar. It has been created and prototyped during a two weeks project at ChalmersUniversity (Sweden) for a Physical Computing class. The aim is to get the feeling of playing a real guitar. The AIRduino Guitar is made of one glove and one stick. The glove is used to set the tone and the stick to ...

Algorithmic Camera Trigger – Shutterino

Camera trigger powered by Arduino MKR1000 and controlled by the app. Let the algorithm take the best shots. Story Shutterino - control the camera's shutter with a sensor-sensitive algorithm. Powered by Arduino MKR1000. I want to make a stop motion short film similar to "Pacer" but I'm nowhere close to having artistic skills to do it. I hope that programming skills will come to rescue. Let's have the algorit ...

Arduino Based Vehicle Accident Alert System using GPS, GSM and Accelerometer

In our previous tutorials, we have learned about How to interface GPS module with Computer, how to build a Arduino GPS Clock and how to Track vehicle using GSM and GPS.  Here in this project, we are going to build a Arduino based vehicle accident alert system using GPS, GSM and accelerometer. Accelerometer detects the sudden change in the axes of vehicle and GSM module sends the alert message on your Mobile ...

ESP12e + OLED display – a try to make a smartwatch

Description Recently I bought two ESP12e, wanted to see how those IoT things work. One thing I know for sure, they don't tolerate 12V 1A ;) yep fired one by accident ... I left with one working, trying to figure out what should I build with it. In the meantime was wondering should I by a smartwatch, do I really need one? What would I use it for etc... then start googling about it, check some stores at net, ...

transmission: A Creativity Measurement System

It can be too easy to get stuck overthinking your ideas and letting your gears grind without making any progress. As makers, designers, engineers, hobbyists, etc. it is crucial for us to get out of our heads and sketch out our ideas as they come. It takes practice, but ultimately the more we sketch, the more we can create and the better we can share our ideas. Inspired by Craighton Berman's Pencil Sharpener ...

Interfacing Accelerometer to Arduino

In this article, we are going to interface the GY-521 accelerometer with Arduino. The GY-521 has an InvenSense MPU6050 chip which contains a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyro meter. This makes it a 6 DOF IMU (6 degrees of freedom inertial measurement unit). The chip also includes a 16-bit analog to digital converter on each channel and a DMP (Digital Motion Processor) unit. The DMP unit is responsible ...

Accelerometer Controlled Robot

Most of industrial robots are still programmed using the typical teaching process, through the use of the robot teach pendant. In this paper is proposed an accelerometer-based system to control an industrial robot using two low-cost and small 3-axis wireless accelerometers. These accelerometers are attached to the human arms, capturing its behavior (gestures and postures). An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) ...
