This tutorial takes you through all the steps to connecting the APA102 RGB LED strip to the Arduino. We also guide you through the process of writing some code to be able to control the LED strip. It’s an excellent project if you love playing with lights.
Learn how to set up the ADXL345 accelerometer with the Arduino. It’s a cool sensor that will be handy in quite a few tutorials, especially ones where movement is involved. We make use of an Adafruit library, which makes this tutorial significantly easier.
In this tutorial, we take you through how to set up the Adafruit VEML6075 UV Sensor with the Arduino. This sensor is super affordable and perfect for checking the UV index. You can build on this tutorial to have other sensors to work alongside it.
Learn how to connect the DHT22 sensor to the Arduino Uno. This sensor is perfect if you need to collect both the temperature and humidity. We also go through all the code that you will need to gather the correct data. It’s a relatively simple tutorial.
In this tutorial, we make use of an HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor to measure distances. It’s effective at measuring distances up to roughly 400 centimetres or 157 inches. It’s the perfect sensor to implement in your next Arduino project.
In this tutorial, I will be taking a look a connecting a force sensing resistor (FSR) to the Arduino Uno. Using an FSR is a great way to detect pressure on a surface. At the end of the tutorial, I have some suggestions on how this can be implemented in a full project.
This tutorial goes through all the steps to getting started with Arduino Cayenne. It’s an easy way to enable a powerful IoT software for the Arduino. You will find using Cayenne it is a great way to integrate sensors and more with your board quickly. It will also drastically reduce the amount of coding you […]
This tutorial goes through the steps to making your own Arduino web server. It’s a straightforward process that covers the process of getting it up and running. I will also cover some core concepts such as using Ajax to update rather than refreshing the page over and over.
In this Arduino LCD tutorial, I will take you through the steps to connecting a simple 16×2 LCD up to the Arduino. There is a ton that you’re able to do with an LCD (liquid crystal display), so it’s a useful little device to learn how to connect and communicate with. You will find that […]
In this tutorial, I will be looking at how to set up the Arduino DS18b20 temperature sensor and anything else you need to know about it. This project is pretty cool if you want to set up a data logger or just something to monitor the temperatures of a certain room. You could combine this […]
In this Arduino light sensor tutorial, I will go through the basics of setting up a photoresistor, so you’re able to detect changes in light easily. This little device can be extremely handy in a lot of projects where measuring the amount of light is important. This tutorial is incredibly simple but will hopefully explain […]
In this tutorial, I will be going through the steps on how to set up the Arduino serial monitor so you can debug and interact with a program running on the Arduino. This tutorial is pretty simple, but it can be a bit confusing at first especially if you’re new to programming and the Arduino. […]
The Arduino battery tester is a pretty cool nifty tool that you can use to check how charged a battery is. This is perfect for anyone who wants to know roughly how long a battery has left before it runs out of charge. This battery tester is a pretty barebones beginner Arduino project but it […]
In this tutorial, we will be building a simple Arduino motion sensor that makes use of a PIR sensor to be able to detect motion. This simple circuit can be extended to do some pretty cool stuff, for example, activate lights, a speaker and much more. In this particular tutorial, we will be making use […]
In this tutorial we’re going to make our very own Arduino dice circuit. This is a simple project and is great for introducing yourself to more of the basics of the Arduino. Much like the Arduino traffic lights project this project uses a variety of LEDS and resistors to make up the circuit. We will […]
In this tutorial, we will take a look at building an Arduino traffic light circuit. This project will involve using a little a bit of code and a very simple circuit that’s great for beginners. This is a great beginner project if you have only just bought your first Arduino or looking at buying one. […]
