We have chosen this one because, as you know as an Arduino’s fan, the official pcbs and schematic files of the boards are developed and available free of charge to everybody in Eaglecad format; you can find also a lot of libraries and circuits made by famous DIY website (Sparkfun for first) available for free.
Editor's note: Black Girls Code has reached its goal, but you still have until midnight to support the Summer of Code campaign. San Francisco-based Black Girls Code is within a few thousand dollars of funding a campaign that will teach programming...
This is a small walking robot that uses an Arduino nano & an ultrasonic sensor for range finding. I started off purchasing a small plastic walking robot with a IR remote control, they are available at radioshack for $25.00. With this you can make the robot autonomous & obstacle avoiding. My project began by opening the casing, I found two IC's on the control board, a motor controller & on the other side a small processor.
Race orientated RC Cars are powerful enough to reach scale speeds of 600 miles per hour. Stability solutions currently available try to address this excess power by actively steering into skids however this approach cannot hope to match up to the vast amounts of power resulting in frustration, broken cars and lost interest.
Arduino enthusiast Lucky Larry has used a Sharp Infra-Red distance sensor, servos, Arduino and the Processing language to create a simple yet interesting radar-sweep display. The sensor is rotated on a 180-degree sweep using a servo, and the distance data is sent back to the PC via an Arduino.
By now the interested Arduino enthusiast will have seen the videos on the Internet of various sounds and songs being made with floppy disk drives. The stuttering of one or more drives in sequence can produce some credible noises. However actually moving forward and making your own FDD orchestra may have been a mystery - until now.
This instructable will show you how to make an RC launch system for your Estes rocket, which can be operated with a TV remote. What it does is it allows you to press the center button on your TV remote, and it'll automatically launch your rocket. In this way it is basically a wireless version of the standard launch controller. But this is not all it does.
[Tod] wrote in to tell us about his latest project. It's called wifino, and aims to set your Arduino free by offering a web-based IDE, online storage for your Arduino sketches, and even WiFi enabled hardware to upload sketches ...
nanoMoCo is a complete single-axis stepper driver/controller that is compatible with the Arduino IDE and development framework. Want more than one axis? MoCoBus allows real-time synchronization with up to 253 total devices - which can be other nanoMoCo devices, or anything which can speak the MoCoBus protocol.
After maintaining CodeBlocks Arduino Edition, which is an out-of-box distribution for Windows only, for several months, I finally got everything to work on Linux. Here is a guide showing all the steps for setting up a productive Arduino development environment with CodeBlocks on a Linux box.
Since I had little to do over New years day, I threw together some Arduino code that would allow reading of Nand-Flash chips. This includes the memory contents and both the ID and ‘secret’ ID where supported.
Many folks here at IDEO know how to quickly get something up and running on Arduino, so we figured we should make an Arduino shield for a Bluetooth Module. Moreover, instead of Bluetooth-to-Bluetooth connection (which can be mimicked using Xbee radios), we focused on Bluetooth-to-iOS.
