Arduino Infrared Sensor Module

DIY Infrared Sensor Module using Arduino

Have you ever wanted to make a line following robot but the infrared sensors were too expensive for you? Do you want to upgrade the robot in my other instructable? Well this instructable comes in two stages, Stage 1 is the prototyping stage, where you build the circuit on the bread board and debug it …

Arduino Control Infrared Helicopter

Using an Arduino to Control an Infrared Helicopter

In this Instructable we will explain how infrared signals are used by a remote to control a toy or device, then show how a simple circuit can be added to anΒ ArduinoΒ to operate the same device through free, Open Source software. This document is part of a series covering theΒ Puzzlebox Orbit, a brain-controlled helicopter that features …

Arduino Infrared Controller

Control anything remotely with Infrared signals using Arduino

Who would have thought that just about every Arduino attachment can be controlled in some way with a TV remote? Now its time to find out how. Arduino.skp141 KB Step 1: Setup and Materials The setup for this is quite basic. The real challenge is finding neat products for this and writing the code. Materials. …

Infrared Rangefinder

Homemade Infrared Rangefinder (Similar to Sharp GP2D120) using Arduino

Here is my instructable on how to construct a pretty simple (for some!) short range infrared rangefinder/range sensor. Infrared rangefinders are very useful in a number of projects. The majority of these come from obstacle detection (in robots) or generally detecting distances! The one shown here is only a simple rangefinder and will only really …

Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino

Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino, Part 3 – Hex IR Signals

In Part 1 of this series, we demonstrated how to send signals using soft or Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino. In our Part 2 post we looked at sending RAW IR signals – specifically a RAW NEC signal and a longer RAW Mitsubishi Air Conditioner signal using soft PWM. We have since improved the PWM …

Controlling relay switches with an infrared remote

Controlling relay switches with an infrared remote

TheΒ infrared (IR) communication technology, which existed long before WiFi and Bluetooth, is still a key componentΒ in implementing major components of a typical home automation system. For example, IR technology is still used in cordless headphones, for intrusion detection in home security systems, and in handheld remotes for controlling home entertainment systems (TV, DVD, soundbox, etc), …

How to Build an Infrared Distance Sensor Circuit

An infrared (IR) distance sensor is a sensor that can measure distance from a solid or physical object. An infrared distance sensor does this through light waves. It sends out infrared light and waits to receive it back at the receiver end. If it receives back the infrared light, this means that the light waves …
