DIY Arduino Motor Driver Shield

In this DIY session, we make an Arduino Motor Driver Shield to drive DC motors, stepper motor and Servo Motor. Compatible with Arduino UNO and Arduino Mega, this motor driver shield can operate 4 DC motors or 1 stepper motor and 2 servo motors at a time. Here two L293D Motor Driver ICs are used for driving motors and an 8-bit shift register for controlling them. Components Required Motor Driver IC L293D -2 ...

Arduino Sew Easy Wearable Shield

Wearable computing, e-textiles, soft circuits or whatever you want to call it, is a growing field of applying technology to garments or accessories like bags, shoes or backpacks.  It is a fun and creative challenge which goes beyond just adding LED lights to fabric.  For a primer, you must check out the work of Lynne Bruning. Of course, to make things light up really cool, you need some kind of microprocess ...

Arduino Laser Security Shield

*** I AM THIRTEEN. I REALLY ENJOY PUTTING TOGETHER THESE INSTRUCTABLES. PLEASE SHOW SUPPORT BY VOTING FOR ME IN THE LASER CUTTER CONTEST - http://www.instructables.com/contest/epilog3/*** I started thinking about this project a couple of months ago now. A laser tripwire that can log when the beam is broken and has the ability to take a picture when the beam is broken. Perfect for the bedroom intruder and wh ...

Robot shield for Arduino. Part 1 – Hardware and Schematic

The idea behind this post is to bring together some robot designs and trasform them in a new device with new hardware and standard software (arduino of course) and so easier to use. These robots have three things in common: a mechanical structure, the hardware and the software. While the mechanical part is necessarily different, we wanted to understand if there was a hardware board that could be common, wit ...

Arduino Motor Shield

We are not the first to make an Motor Shield for Arduino.  But could be that we are the first that make a Motor Shield with a minimum of flexibility. We are studing a WiFi robot with camera controlled by Arduino. The robot will be controlled by browser. But we find a problem with an existing shield: the pin SPI to controll Ethernet shield (that become WiFi shield) are the same of motor shield. So we reengin ...

Arduino Tiny Relay Shield Project

In this Arduino project, you will build a small relay shield from stripboard. The shield can have one or two relays fitted to it. Connect the Arduino and relay shield to your PC via a USB cable. Download the PC software and use it to switch anything on and off that is attached to the relays. The shield is based on the Tiny Stripboard Shield for Arduino project. This video shows the Arduino shield project an ...

Tutorial: Arduino Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield – Part 1: Servos

This post starts a small (or larger?) series of tutorials using the Arduino Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield with the FRDM-KL25Z board. That motor shield is probably one of the most versatile on the market, and features 2 servo and 4 motor connectors for DC or stepper motors. That makes it a great shield for any robotic project The series starts with a tutorial how to drive two servo motors. And if this is not wh ...

Pololu Wixel Shield for Arduino User’s Guide

1. Overview The Wixel shield seamlessly enables a wireless link (with a typical range of ~50 feet) to replace your Arduino’s USB interface, which means you can use the standard Arduino computer software to: wirelessly program the Arduino (this feature is not available with the Arduino Leonardo or the A-Star 32U4 Prime). wirelessly debug sketches with the Arduino serial monitor. wirelessly communicate with t ...

A Voice Shield for Arduino – Give Voice to your Ideas!

The objective of this project is to build an Arduino voice shield to empower thousands of voice related applications! All this mostly thanks to an integrated ISD1790PY chip. This particular voice/TTS  feature can be useful to integrate voice messages in alarm systems, to implement generic I/O controls in home automation or even in home security applications: something like playing an alert when a person or ...

Paladin Enabling Technologies – Reflow Master Shield

The Reflow Master Shield from Paladin Enabling Technologies is an Arduino shield that turns your normal toaster oven into a reflow oven. A reflow oven is used in the production of electronics to change solder paste from a paste form to a liquid form and lastly to a solid form. This results in all your components being soldered for you in one run. But let me share with you why I've created the Reflow Master ...
