Simple Arduino Traffic Lights

Have you ever made a city out of Legos? I know i have built many of them but they all missed something... Traffic lights! So i decided to make my very own traffic light setup from my arduino board. Step 2: Get the components I assume you already have an adruino board, and maybe also a Protoshield. You'll need the LED's and resistors the 220 Ohm resistors are color coded so: Red, Red, Brown Step 3: Hook up t ...

Gravitational force Mater using Arduino

I have a late 80's VW and the gauge cluster has 5 dummy LED locations underneath the other warning lights.  Well I was tired of the m not doing anything, so I decided to do something about it.  I came up with the idea to put a lateral gravitational force mater (G Meter)  in there place. Step 1: Gather up the needed supplies All parts needed if you wish to make it standalone: 1 -Circuit Board 1- ATmega168/32 ...

Hidden light control using Arduino

I’ve bought recently some cheap dual axis magnetic sensors at SureElectronics (http://www.sureelectronics.net/goods.php?id=944), I’ve tried first to use them as straight compass. Annoying problem : it’s impossible to accurately compensate the tilt of the sensor without using a gyro sensor. On the other end, if you stay on the same horizontal plan, the measures are pretty accurate even if you consider their ...

Arduino Powered Mushroom Environment Control

This is my first Arduino project aimed at helping me with my other hobby which is growing oyster and shiitake mushrooms indoors. In a nutshell, the controller takes in two temperature readings, 1 Humidity reading and 1 Co2 reading and triggers a set of four relays connected to mains power. Intended to be connected to the mains are two heating pads, a sonic humidifier and an air pump (although the choice isn ...

Keyfob Deadbolt using an Arduino Board

The key to my apartment never worked quite right because it is a copy of a copy of a copy. I am fairly certain that the dead bolt is original to the building and the property manager seems to have lost the original key years ago. As a result unlocking the door was always a pain. Changing the lock wasn't an option, but eliminating the need to use a key was. Parts: Arduino Uno RF transmitter and receiver Serv ...
