Arduino Barometer Project Using BMP180

Pressure sensors are widely used in drones, weather stations, smartphones and more. It is important to know how this small piece of technology works. We are going to be using the BPM180 sensor. The name of the module is GY-68. The small device can read, pressure, altitude, and temperature. Let’s build a small device that uses BPM180 …

Arduino Projects: HX711 Module

Out of all the interesting Arduino Projects we have worked on in the past, this turned out to be a little more exciting. Here comes the not so popular tensiometry beam with the HX711 module that allows you to find the weight of an object. Strain gauges are widely used in industry to measure tensions and strains in sophisticated …

Arduino Projects: IR Receiver

One of the most used types of wireless communication for TV remote control is IR (Infrared). This Arduino project is going to be about using IR. One of the places you will also always find an IR controlled device is in AC (Air Conditioning system) and projectors. Infrared is the perfect low energy technology, it works …

Arduino Projects: Arduino 7 Segment Display

One of the most popular ways to display digits for Arduino is using the alphanumerical LCD. Some of the common ways also include display types like graphical (a very popular display from Nokia phones), E-paper, LCD and LED displays. LED displays are the simplest. It is made out of LEDs, those LEDs are connected into segments mostly …

MPU6050 Arduino Project

In one of our previous Arduino project, we used a PIR motion sensor to detect movement. PIR sensors use infrared that is emitted by objects to detect movement. In this tutorial, we are going to use a MPU6050 sensor that has build-in accelerometer and gyroscope to detect movement. The latter is often used in drones, balancing …

Arduino RFID Project for Beginners

Do you know what skipasses, credit cards and clothes have in common? You may think about plastic but connecting plastic to the Arduino wouldn’t make anything functionally amazing. What we will do today is reading and authorizing RFID tags using the Arduino Uno board. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. It is commonly confused with NFC which …

Magnetic Contact Switch Arduino Project

The essential sensors for home automation are the following: the movement sensor like the PIR sensor we’ve made used of here the flood sensor the temperature sensor the humidity sensor Today, we are going to add one more sensor to the list: the Reed switch. The Reed switch is a simple contact that closes when …
