Today we will learn how Hall Effect sensors and switches work. These handy devices are activated using magnets.
After that we will use a couple of Hall Effect switches to control the position of a stepper motor. Using an Arduino, we’ll build both Limit Switches and a Homing Sensor.
We will look at the MPU-6050, an Inertial Measurement Unit or IMU. This inexpensive device contains both an accelerometer and a gyroscope and has many applications.
We will also build an electronic level that uses an LCD and LED display.
In our second look at using the I2C bus we will build our own I2C sensor, one that has four ultrasonic distance sensors.
We’ll also learn about the protocol used by I2C communications
Learn how to use and program the Arduino Pro Mini, using an FTDI adapter and the Arduino IDE.
We will also use a 3.3-volt Pro Mini to build a battery-powered robot arm controller for the MeArm
SD and microSD cards are a simple way to add huge amounts of non-volatile storage to your Arduino designs. In this article, I will show you how to use SD card modules with the Arduino.
I will also show you how to record and playback the motion of a servo motor.
The RCWL-0156 is an inexpensive yet useful proximity sensor that can be used on its own or with a microcontroller like an Arduino Uno.
The device is unique in that it uses microwaves and Doppler Radar to detect moving objects
In this article I will show you how the device works on its own and how we can add an Arduino (or two) to create some useful projects
The Elegoo Smart Robot Car is an Arduino-based design with an impressive list of features
In the final installment of this series, I show you how to use both Collision Avoidance and Line Tracking with the Smart Robot Car.
In the second part of the series on building the Elegoo Smart Robot Car I will show you how to use the remote control functions.
The robot car has both IR remote control and Bluetooth remote control capabilities. Today we will learn how to use and code for both of these.
The Elegoo Smart Robot Car V3 is an Arduino-based robot car with features like Bluetooth remote, IR remote, line following, and collision avoidance.
In the first of a three-part article I will show you how to assemble and test the Robot Car.
