WojciechM3 @ instructables.com has build an Arduino based soil moisture sensor with character LCD, real time clock and SD card logging. It can be very helpful with a master degree biotechnology/biology/botanics works, however remember that kind of a project can be only add as a bonus as it is in my Master thesis. Good luck withRead More
This is a project that i made for my hobby of shooting with co2 guns. I needed a fun but a good game to work on my speed to shoot on targets. After a little googling on the internet i find some good projects but i'm going to do this project a little more advanced.The goal is to have 4 custom made targets that are controlled thru a base that holds Arduino uno. On the 4 targets there will be sensors that reacts on vibration (Piezo) there will also be a led on all targets to indicate when to hit them.Right now there is 3 games.First there is Quickdraw (Shoot as fast as you can)Then there is timed mode (shoot as many times you can in 10 sec)Then there is Rapid Fire (Shoot 32 times on timeThis version of the game will use wires to the targets, but i'm also ...
Prepaid Electricity Energy Meter is a good concept in which you can recharge its balance, like we do in our mobile phones. In this project we are building a automated system by using Arduino and GSM module. You can recharge the electricity balance through this system, just by sending a SMS. It can also disconnect the home power supply connection, if there is low or zero balance in the system.
For me, discussing the weather is more than idle small talk. So when I got interested in web-enabled electronics (the Internet of Things), I knew immediately that my first IoT project would be related to the first thing I do when I log onto my computer at work each day: check the weather. This "weather station" simply pulls weather data from the internet and displays it using analog electrical panel meters.The brains of the project is the Particle Photon which is pretty much a tiny Arduino with a wifi chip. The actual weather station is made of a scrap of walnut. The panel meters have custom faces that I designed in DraftSight, which is a free cad program. The weather data is provided by the Forecast.io Dark Sky API. All the code and custom panel meter faces can be found on the project GitHub Repository.Errata: The barometer meter face shown ...
I guess everybody knows those remote controlled switches that in their simplest form come in a couple (mostly 3) of switcheable devices to plug into the mains outlet and that will receive a plug of a lamp or something and that can be switched on and off by a small hand held device. Using an Arduino or other micro controller instead of the handheld transmitter to switch those devices on and off is the basis of many DIY 'home automatisation' projects. Still, for the novice it can be a bit daunting to get one of those sets and use them in combination with a microcontroller.My goal in this instructable is to help those people on their way. However, I owe a big word of thanks to Jeroen Meijer for developing a great library, adding classes for some of the remotes I had and for helping me understand the concept of ...
