Controlling A Linear Actuator With An Arduino

There is a wide application of linear actuator where one wants to move something but they do not want to physically get involved in moving it. There are quite a number of ways to control linear actuators depending on the application and the user experience required. These are the key aspects determining the setup and the way this setup will operate. It is common for most movements to involve manual control ...

Controlling A Robotic Car Through MATLAB GUI

This project presents the implementation of a MATLAB based graphical user interface (GUI) to control the movement of a robotic car. The commands to move the car in forward, reverse, right and left directions are sent from the GUI and processed by Arduino Uno board mounted on top of the car. Authors’ prototype is shown in Fig. 1.     MATLAB GUI based robotic car Circuit and working In this project, ...

Nerd++: Controlling Dioder RGB LED Strips with Arduino, Pt. 1 – Getting Started

A few weeks ago, it came to my attention that IKEA do a set of colour-changeable LED strips. I’ve been looking for a decent way of providing some lighting behind my computer to reduce eye-strain for a long time, and these seemed perfect: I was very pleased with them, but no self-respecting nerd would stop here. Especially one who’s seen Philips’ Ambilight technology in action! Over a series of blog posts, I ...

Simulating and controlling GE Color Effects Lights with Arduino

Overview This project builds a Christmas lights controller for the GE Color Effects lights allowing programmed control of up to 8 sets of Christmas lights. Furthermore, it provides a function specific language for programming patterns for these lights and an emulation environment for testing the programs requiring the lights to be built or hung. Pre-reading Arduino - If you have never heard of an Arduino, t ...

Controlling Cubase with Arduino based MIDI

A friend of mine wanted to control Cubase, his audio recording software, with a push button so that he could stop and start recordings remotely without having to go over to the computer and type on the keyboard. You may be able to do this in other recording software, we just happen to use Cubase. Step 1: What you need Normally open push buttons (one for every action you want to perform like these) 10K-Ohm r ...
