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
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

The examples in this article use an OLED display. Countdown timer example In its simplest form, a countdown timer can be coded like this, using the loop() for repetition (no for- or while-loop needed!): Full example : oled_display_countdown_start_button.ino This will countdown from 10 to 0 in ten seconds. If you prefer to display the number … Continue reading Countdown timers and executing tasks in parallel on an Arduino
This article assumes you have already some experience in creating Java Apps. For instance if you have done the first 2 lectures of the course Application Development. You should also have prepared the DHT temperature/humidity sensor and have a working sketch for it (eg. by completing step 1 and 2 of this assignment, or via … Continue reading Create a stand-alone Java App that displays info from a connected sensor
The BLE Nano as sold here is a combination of a traditional Nano with a Bluetooth BLE module, based on the CC2540 BLE bluetooth chip. The Bluetooth module is directly connected to the TX, RX pins of the Arduino (pins 0 and 1). This is the pinout of the board: Check out the location of … Continue reading Introduction to the Arduino BLE Nano
An example to control the intensity of vibration using PWM for the Vibration DC Motor Module. For example this model: Connect the module to 5V (VCC) and ground (GND) and the IN pin to any PWM pin of the Arduino. Eg. for an Arduino Uno, this can be pin 3. For an overview of PWM … Continue reading Vibration Motor control
