Tutorial: Create a gamecontroller for the catch-the-ball game

In this tutorial, we are going to create a gamecontroller which can control the game using movements. By tilting the gamecontroller, you can control the movement of the basket. We will extend the game made in the previous tutorial. Carrying out the assignment Realizing the gamecontroller can be done in 2 ways: Using the MPU-6050 Accelerometer … Continue reading Tutorial: Create a gamecontroller for the catch-the-ball game

Tutorial: build a connected temperature sensor

Introduction to Arduino and programming . Practicals which use this tutorial have an introductory presentation (pdf). We will build a temperature sensor in this tutorial and connect it with an App. It uses an DHT11 temperature & humidity sensor and Bluetooth communication with a phone. We use a BLE-Nano here, but you can also use a regular Arduino … Continue reading Tutorial: build a connected temperature sensor

Options for additional components and power for the Arduino

What options are there for the use of motors in our project? There are many types of motors. There are 3 basic types (more info): Servo motors Stepper motors DC motors Most light servo motors can be used directly with an Arduino (no motor driver/controller required). For some heavier types and for many DC and … Continue reading Options for additional components and power for the Arduino

BLE-Nano with RGB LED

Bluetooth communication between an App built with App Inventor and the BLE-Nano board

This tutorial describes how to build an electronic circuit with an RGB LED (a LED that can change color), and change its color using an App. It also demonstrates two-way communication over Bluetooth LE between an App built with App Inventor and the BLE-Nano board. The BLE-Nano board is basically an Arduino Nano with an … Continue reading Bluetooth communication between an App built with App Inventor and the BLE-Nano board
