Magnetometer Parking Sensor

The objective of our project was to develop a wireless sensor device to be used for detecting motor vehicles, along with their direction of travel. The sensor is to be used in a larger system to monitor parking lot traffic by counting ins and outs of vehicles, thus showing which lots are full or not via a website and mobile application. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31233,31234"] The sensor is a m ...

iBreathe, A Breathalyzer Based on Hexiwear

Knowing the amount of alcohol you drunk is becoming easier using the iBreathe Breathalyzer project by Dave Clarke. You just have to blow in the alcohol sensor, then it pings the result to a smartphone app and to the cloud to document it as a table so you can see alcohol intake through time. This breathalyzer with a custom Beer mug casing will let you know where do you stand on the scale form “Sober as a jud ...

Automatic Water Dispenser using Arduino

Automatic Water Dispenser using Arduino About 71% of earth is covered with water, but sadly only 2.5% of it is drinking water. With rise in population, pollution and climate change, it is expected that by as soon as 2025 we will experience perennial water shortages. At one hand there are already minor disputes among nations and states for sharing river water on the other hand we as humans waste a lot of dri ...

Filtering Noisy Arduino Measurements

Measurements from the real world often contain noise. Loosely speaking, noise is just the part of the signal you didn’t want. Maybe it comes from electrical noise: the random variations you see when calling analogRead on a sensor that should be stable. Noise also arises from real effects on the sensor. Vibration from the engine adds noise if you’re measuring the acceleration of a go-kart, for example. Filte ...
