The JSN-SR04T and A02YYUW are a couple of inexpensive waterproof ultrasonic distance sensors. They are easy to use, and have several advantages over the popular HC-SR04 sensor.
In this article I’ll show you how they work and how to use them with an Arduino Uno.
Today we will learn how RC Remote controls work, and how we can use them with an Arduino.
After learning two different ways of interfacing with the Flysky receiver, we will build a small robot car.
Our car will have two different modes – Normal & Spin. You’ll have to read the article or watch the video to find out what that means!
Today we will look at the Arduino IoT Cloud, an online application for building Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
I’ll show you how to get an account set up, how to configure your workstation, and how to build your first “Thing”.
The cloud was recently updated, so now even free plan users can work with the ESP32, and I’ll show you how to do that as well.
Learn to use common GPS positioning modules in your Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects.
Today we will see how satellite positioning systems work, and how to use GPS modules in our projects.
We’ll also build a GPS Logger to track our movements, then display our data on Google Maps.
The much-anticipated Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect board has a Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU with ESP32-based WiFi and Bluetooth. The board also sports a 6-axis IMU with Machine Learning, a built-in MEMS Microphone, and a Cryptographic Coprocessor.
Today we will learn how to set up our development environment to work with this exciting new board, and we’ll run a few Arduino-supplied example sketches.
In order to learn to code in MicroPython or CircuitPython you are going to need to get a firm foundation in Python.
In this article I will give you a list of resources like websites, YouTube videos, Udemy courses and books that will help you become an expert in Python.
And the best part is that all of these resources are completely free!
CircuitPython is an easy-to-use language with hundreds of libraries for microcontrollers. Today we will be using CircuitPython with the Raspberry Pi Pico
With over 300 libraries already to go CircuitPython makes it easy to expose the power of the Raspberry Pi Pico.
Today we’ll see how to install CircuitPython and how to use it to build a keyboard emulator, a mouse emulator, work with MicroSD cards and flash some addressable RGB lights.
The new Raspberry Pi Pico is a microcontroller – yes a microcontroller, not a microcomputer! It lists for four dollars and it uses a new MCU designed by Raspberry Pi.
To test one out I hooked up a bunch of I/O components and used MicroPython to code them.
In this first of a two-part series we will learn how to measure both DC voltage and DC current using an Arduino Uno. Although the examples all use the Uno, what we learn here can be applied to any microcontroller.
The second part of the series will, of course, focus on Alternating Current.
Today we will look at PlatformIO, an alternate IDE for working with the Arduino and many other microcontrollers.
You’ll learn how to install PlatformIO under Visual Studio Code, and also how to use it to program for the Arduino Uno, The ESP32 and Seeeduino XIAO.
Once you get used to it you’ll see that PlatformIO has many advantages over the Arduino IDE.>
