Make your own infrared receiver with two resitors, an IR Led and Arduino
Our recent post about the silver bullet IR receiver proved very popular and we promised that we would follow-up with another variant of the poor maker’s Infrared receiver. This time we are using an IR Led (emitter), 2 resistors and any standard Arduino. You will also need to download the Arduino code provided below, compile and upload it. One of the most common problems encountered when trying to decode IR signals is that makers don’t always have the appropriate IR receiver for the job in hand or have to wait for one to be delivered by mail. Here we present an affordable method to allow you to use any IR emitter (LED) as a receiver and as a bonus we are publishing the Arduino code to make it all work.
After some initial teething problems we set about playing with this new device. Then we went about trying to integrate it into AnalysIR. We found that operating the IR Toy in 'Sampling Mode' worked best for our needs. There are several other modes available which are described on the website below.
As we have supported Arduino and of course Raspberry Pi we felt that adding a new device as a source for IR signals, warranted the introduction of a new Menu feature called Source. From our next release (hopefully) users will be able to select the source from the main menu and use Arduinos, RPi & now the IR toy with AnalysIR.
For anyone interested in IR protocols - we have just launched a project for AnalysIR - IR Decoder & Analyzer GUI (Arduino & Raspberry Pi). Currently we support 17 IR protocols and are looking for more to add as part of the campaign. Suggestions Welcome!
If the project is successful, we hope to add support for Raspberry Pi !
Make this 5,5 cm tall ATtiny based robot wobble with almost any IR remote. Put it next to your TV and it shows its happiness each time you use your remote (This way at least someone gets some movement). Or you can have it dance to the signal of your sound system.
For anyone interested in IR protocols - we have just launched a Crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo for AnalysIR - IR Decoder & Analyzer (Arduino & Raspberry Pi). Currently we support 17 IR protocols and are looking for more to add as part of the campaign. Suggestions Welcome!
Geeky gadgets Arduino Infrared Learning Processor Board Set (video) Geeky gadgets Developers, makers and hobbyists that enjoy making projects using the Arduino platform might be interested in a new Arduino compatible infrared learning processor...
Pretty Clever method to focus IR vs use of more expensive Laser technology...brings back memories of school...but much more interesting.
