Eye Guardian: Sound Triggered Eye Protection

Eye Guardian is an Arduino powered, High-Decibel continuous sound triggered eye protection wear. It detects heavy equipment sound and lowers protective eye goggles while the equipment is in use. Outline In the first step, I will explain the Inspiration&Idea behind this project. Next, I will give you a Tools&Parts list that I have used to build this. Then I will explain the design choices I made and ...

Arduino Datalogger

In this tutorial, we're going to make a simple data logger using Arduino. The point is to learn the very basics of using Arduino to capture information and print to the terminal. We can use this basic setup to complete a range of tasks. To get started: You will need a Tinkercad (www.tinkercad.com) account. Head over and sign up with your email or social media account. Logging in takes you to the Tinkercad D ...

A Menu in Arduino, and How to Use Buttons

In my Arduino 101 tutorial, you'll be taught how to setup your environment in Tinkercad. I use Tinkercad because it is a pretty powerful online platform that allows me to demonstrate a range of skills to students for building circuits. Feel free to build all my tutorials using the Arduino IDE and a real Arduino! In this tutorial, we're going to learn about buttons! We need to know: How to wire the ...

Getting Started with the NodeMCU (ESP8266 Based Development Board)

As the popularity of Arduino boards increased, the demand for boards which comes embedded with some of the add-ons used with the Arduino increased. One of the most popular add-ons were the WiFi modules which are used to connect Arduino boards to the internet. Several boards were released by different manufacturers which used the Arduino form factor and had onboard WiFi module, but none of these boards ...

UCL – Embedded – NerfGunTurret

Step 1: Project Presentation This project/instructables shows how to make a nerf gun operated by a remote control. The nerf gun is placed on a bracket which parts are 3D printed and laser cut. That way the nerf gun is able to stand by it self.The nerf gun rotates and moves on the x- and y-axis which results in it being able to move up, down, left and right. However there is also a kind of a dimensional z-ax ...

Dev Board Breadboard

This Instructables show how to create a tailor-made breadboard for dev board. Step 1: Current Breadboard Breadboard (solderless breadboards) is a very import component for prototyping of electronics. It can help you test the circuit before soldering it. Since the connection not require soldering, after the prototyping, all components can be reusable for next projects. There are various size of breadboard, a ...

FROM THE MACGYVER FILES: USING A STEPPER MOTOR AS AN ENCODER

It isn’t hard to imagine a scenario where you are stuck at home all day with nothing to do and certain items are in short supply. Sure, bathroom tissue gets all the press, but try buying some flour or a freezer and see how far you get. Plus online shopping has given up on next day delivery for the duration. Not hard to imagine at all. Now suppose your latest self-quarantine project needs a rotary shaft enco ...
