Edison-Scope

Edison-Scope | Arduino progz | Scoop.it
Edison-Scope, is an Intel Edison controlled 200 Msa/S mixed signal oscilloscope. It provides an Operating System agnostic method to control the MSO-28 oscilloscope. By leveraging the web browser on the modern smart devices, one can control USB based hardware traditionally requires a desktop OS. Conceptually this project is very similar to the PiMSO project, but the similarity exist only on the client side. The server side was rewritten using Node.js. Node.js provided a more device independent solution to the server side of the WebMSO project.

Motorised Timelapse Slider

I can't remember when I first decided I wanted to shoot a timelapse on a slider, probably, I suppose when I first saw a timescape video several years ago. In March last year I bought a Konova K2 800mm slider from Amazon. Now I need to motorise it!

Watch That Windows Update: FTDI Drivers Are Killing Fake Chips

The FTDI FT232 chip is found in thousands of electronic baubles, from Arduinos to test equipment, and more than a few bits of consumer electronics. It’s a simple chip, converting USB to a serial port, but very useful and probably one of the most cloned pieces of silicon on Earth. Thanks to a recent Windows update, all those fake FTDI chips are at risk of being bricked. This isn’t a case where fake FTDI chips won’t work if plugged into a machine running the newest FTDI driver; the latest driver bricks the fake chips, rendering them inoperable with any computer.

The Arduino Gemma

The Arduino Gemma | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

In a presentation at the Maker Faire held in Rome this weekend Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi gave a preview of the soon to be released Gemma wearable Arduino board. The 27 mm diameter board contains an ATtiny85 processor programmable from the Arduino IDE via Gemma’s micro USB connector. The design is a collaborative effort together with Adafruit Industries who also worked on the Arduino Micro.

Water level controller using arduino

Water level controller using arduino | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

This article is a about a fully functional water level controller using Arduino. The circuit displays the  level of water in the tank and switches the motor ON when the water level goes below  a predetermined level. The circuit automatically switches the motor OFF when the tank is full. The water level and other important data are displayed on a 16×2 LCD display. The circuit also monitors the level of water in the sump tank (source tank). If the level in side the sump tank is low, the motor will not be switched ON and this protects the motor from dry running. A beep sound is generated when the level in the sump tank is low or if there is any fault with the sensors.

WiFi Weather Station With Arduino and the CC3000 chip

WiFi Weather Station With Arduino and the CC3000 chip | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

As open-source hardware users and makers, we love playing with new chips, boards and tools. And there is one chip which is quite popular these days: the CC3000 WiFi chip from TI. This chip comes with many promises: cheap (around $10), easy to use, low-power … It was featured in many articles around the web, but somehow it was quite hard to use with Arduino as there was no breakout board or library available.

Blueprintf – A Bluetooth Serial Monitor

Blueprintf – A Bluetooth Serial Monitor | Arduino progz | Scoop.it
One way of debugging microcontroller-based projects is to send messages out the UART serial port. Then, a UART-to-USB interface can feed the messages into your PC for display. But I wanted a small, portable device for viewing serial data without a PC, and I wanted it to use my cell phone or tablet for its display.

Flashing a Nixie with an Arduino

Flashing a Nixie with an Arduino | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

I’m starting to source parts for my nixie tube experiments. I’m in the very early stages of prototyping a nixie clock. My Breakout Boards were a bust, but that’s not stopping me from pushing on with the nixie-tinkering.

BrewMonitor: the Arduino-powered, cloud-based homebrewing controller

BrewMonitor: the Arduino-powered, cloud-based homebrewing controller | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

I recently started brewing beer at home with a group of friends and one of the things that quickly came to light, is that maintaining a steady fermention temperature can be the key to a good brew. We have a stick on thermometer on our fermenter buckets which we can use for reading the temperature of the beer, locally, but I was wondering if there was a system I could hook up, so that all of us could check in on the beer via the web. Lo and behold, there are a few systems available for monitoring/controlling the temperature of a batch of homebrew beer as it ferments. But most of them require expensive equipment and the ones that don’t are still based on theArduino-sensor and Raspberry Pi-gateway model, which will set you back the bones of €80, if you make it yourself. As well as that, the webserver for the BrewPi system (most popular as far as I could see) runs on the Raspberry Pi in your home network. This means you have to configure port forwarding and something like dyndns to access it from outside the house, making the system configuration a bit of a chore.

Control Large DC Motors with Arduino!

Arduino's control small motors very easily; in fact, I've done a number of videos covering How to Control a Servo with Arduino, How to Control a Stepper with Arduino, and How to Accurate Control Steppers. 

But another great thing about Arduino's is they make it very easy to control large motors - like the brushed DC gearmotors in this video buy using a motor controller.

Reverse Engineer a Soil Moisture Sensor

Reverse Engineer a Soil Moisture Sensor | Arduino progz | Scoop.it

At the Maker Faire this year I got lots of questions about soil moisture sensors, which I knew little about. So I started seriously researching the subject. I found a few different soil sensors, learned about their principles, and also learned about how to make my own. In this blog post, I will talk about a cheap wireless soil moisture sensor I found on Amazon.com for about $10, and how to use an Arduino or Raspberry Pi to decode the signal from the sensor, so you can use it directly in your own garden projects.
