    Arduino Light Sensor and Piezo Buzzer Experiment In this experiment we are going to work with a sensor which is a resistor that depends on light. In a dark environment, the resistor will have a very high resistance. As photons (light) land on the detector, the resistance will decrease. The more light is we will have a lower resistance. By reading different values from the...
    Arduino & Charlieplexing The term “Charileplexing” is not a familiar one for many electronics hobbyists. Charlieplexing is a technique proposed in early 1995 by Charlie Allen (at Maxim Integrated) for driving a multiplexed display in which relatively few I/O pins on a microcontroller are used to drive an array of LEDs. This method uses the tri-state...
    Photoresistor and Led Experiment with Arduino – Tutorial #11 In this experiment we are going to use a element called photoresistor. This sensor allows us to interact with the external environment, through intensity of light. The photoresistor is based on light resistance, it will sense the light and will allow the microcontroller in this case Arduino to react and change the intensity of...
    GSM Home Security Alarm System with Arduino This project deals with the design & development of a theft control system for home, which is being used to prevent/control any theft attempt. The developed system makes use of an embedded system (comprises an open hardware microcontroller and a gsm modem) based on Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) technology....
    Arduino Alarm Clock In this project, PCF85063ATL CMOS Real-time Clock (RTC) is used as the time generator. This provides year, month, day, weekday, hours, minutes, and seconds based on a 32.768 kHz quartz crystal. A one-farad super capacitor combined with a low forward voltage diode can be used as a standby or backup supply. The output clock...
    Arduino 8×8 LED Matrix 8×8 LED Matrix modules are now widely available, and fortunately they are easy to use with our favorite Arduino microcontroller. 8×8 LED Matrix module have many applications in real life, such as various types of electronic display panels. The LED matrix can be driven in two ways (parallel or serial). Here we drive...
    Arduino Joystick Experiment – Tutorial #10 I have started this joystick controller experiment inspired by the need of a simple DIY joystick which could deliver greater flexibility in the possible designs. Hardware component basis is very minimal for this experiment so most of DIY electronics hobbyists even with limited experience could enjoy it and build a useful...
    Arduino 4-Digit 7-segment LED Display Recently, we published an entry-level Arduino project with a single seven-segment LED display. Although it’s an amazing DIY project, we noted that most of the readers are looking for more advanced circuits using multiple seven-segment light emitting diode displays. Here is a simple, yet useful circuit of an Arduino...
    Optical Position Encoder with Arduino Now a days, optical position encoders/rotary encoders are widely used even in hobby robotics. Common applications of position encoders are: DC motor position / velocity control Servo-mechanism Position / velocity control Computer printer Numerically controlled machinery RPM sensors in robotics Photo-Interrupter Front end of an...
    Learn To Use MMA7361 – Tutorial #9 Reasonably priced add-on sensor modules are now widely available, and you can rig up your own fascinating hobby projects using these pre-assembled modules by linking them to suitable microcontrollers. Here is an introduction to MMA7361, which is a long-familiar 3-Axis Accelerometer Module! This sensor can measure static (earth...
