I think the best way to experiment with projects that you aren’t sure they’ll work or they might possibly blow something up is by simulation. In Arduino’s case, the first thing you can do to assure that things are going to be working smoothly is verifying the sketch, since that’s the brain of the project. […]Read more "Arduino Simulator?"
I experienced a bit with the persistence of vision effect(POV), using a 7 segment LED display. The one I used is a single digit numeric display, Kingbright SC56-11EWA. Essentially I wanted to see the effect going from slow to fast “live”, so I can better understand it. For this I used a potentiometer to slowly […]Read more "7 segment display and Arduino"
I finally found a 16×2 LCD screen at a reasonable price. It was 5.5$ from an electronics store that is not specifically targeted towards robotics. I can’t explain myself why stores that are targeting robotics or are even based around the arduino platform sell such a device for 15$ or worse. I mean you can […]Read more "Arduino&LCD: Hello World!"
I decided this weekend to work on a mini-project, since it came to my mind during the last week. I found that my Arduino starter kit actually had an LM35 temperature sensor, it’s just that I noticed that quite late. The LM35 is a sensor that varies its ouput voltage proportionally to the temperature and […]Read more "Visualizing temperature as color using an RGB led, a LM35 sensor and Arduino"
