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 an Arduino to operate the same device through free, Open Source software. This document is part of a series covering the Puzzlebox Orbit, a brain-controlled helicopter that features …

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. …

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 …

Controlling relay switches with an infrared remote

The infrared (IR) communication technology, which existed long before WiFi and Bluetooth, is still a key component 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 Proximity Switch Circuit Using an Arduino

In this project, we will build an infrared proximity switch circuit using an arduino. This is a circuit in which a switch activates when the infrared sensor detects an object in its proximity. The infrared proximity switch sensor is a reflection-type photoelectric snesor which sends and receives infrared beams. Infrared proximity switches work by sending …

Human Body Infrared Smoke Temperature Alarm System with Arduino

Web site: http://www.instructables.com/id/Human-Body-Infrared-Smoke-Temperature-Alarm-System/ Project Summary: The Human Body Infrared Smoke Temperature Alarm System works under the DC 5v voltage and uses the DH11 Temperature Module to detect the room temperature. When the module detects the temperature is higher than the maximum, the buzzer alarms and the red LED lights. When the MQ2 Smoke Sensor detects …
