RGB and Gesture Sensor – APDS-9960 Arduino Interfacing

ABOUT THE PROJECT: Our sensor, the Avago APDS-9960, offers ambient light and color (as clear, red, green, and blue) measuring, proximity detection, and gesture sensing. We need an Arduino that can connect to a network. It can be either an Arduino with an Ethernet Shield or as we are using, an Arduino Ethernet. Level shifting:…

9DoF Sensor Stick Interfacing with Arduino uno

ABOUT THE PROJECT: “Degrees Of Freedom” or “DOF” is a number of axis and sensors combined for balancing a plane, a helicopter or a robot. 3DOF : This could be a 3-axis accelerometer or it could be a 3-axis gyroscope. 6DOF : This is mostly a 3-axis accelerometer combined with a 3-axis gyroscope. Examples: To…

Line Sensor- QRE1113 (Analog) Interfacing With Arduino Uno

ABOUT THE PROJECT: On this tutorial, we will show how to use the QRE1113 line sensor with an Arduino board. This kind of sensor is usually used in line following robots. It works measuring the surface reflectiveness. Here we will show the digital version. On this version, and on this breakout board type, the sensor discharges…

Fingerprint Scanner – 5V TTL (GT-511C1R) Interfacing With Arduino-

INTRODUCTION Fingerprint scanners are awesome. Why use a key when you have one right at the tip of your finger? Unfortunately, they’re usually unreliable or difficult to implement. Well not anymore! We’ve found this great fingerprint module from ADH-Tech that communicates over TTL Serial so you can easily embed it into your next project. HARDWARE…

TSOP interfacing with Arduino

INTRODUCTION This interfacing basically focussing on reception of IR radiations. How they are processed and check. Therefore we are using a LED for the same and whenever our sensor will detect some kind of IR rays, the LED will turn on. HARDWARE REQUIRED LED – Basic Red 5mm 1 IR Receiver Diode – TSOP38238 1…

IR Sensor Interfacing With Arduino

SENSOR DETAILS An infrared sensor is an electronic device, that emits in order to sense some aspects of the surroundings. An IR sensor can measure the heat of an object as well as detects the motion.These types of sensors measures only infrared radiation, rather than emitting it that is called as a passive IR sensor…

REED Switch Interfacing With Arduino

INTRODUCTION The Reed devices are electronic or Electro-mechanical components that work using the technology of the reed contacts, realised for the first time by the Bell.The Reed contact switch is a lamina (normally open) which closes in the presence of a magnetic field. The reed contacts have found use in the production of various types…

Alcohol Sensor MQ-3 Interfacing with Arduino

INTRODUCTION The MQ-3 is an alcohol gas sensor that is available for about $5 from Sparkfun, Seeed Studio, and others. It’s easy to use and has sparked the imagination of anyone who has dreamed of building their own breathalyzer device for measuring the amount of alcohol in the human body. HARDWARE REQUIRED ARDUINO UNO MQ-3…
