Using an Ultrasonic sensor with Arduino

This short tutorial introduces HC-SR04 Ultrasonic sensor. It is assumed you have installed the Arduino IDE and have some basic understanding of using electronics and wiring a breadboard. Although in this example we use a display, you can also do without it. To use this sensor, you can connect it to power (GND and VCC, this must … Continue reading Using an Ultrasonic sensor with Arduino

Use DHT11 temperature and humidity sensor with display

This tutorial uses the Arduino Nano, but you may also use an Arduino Uno. You might need the Arduino Nano pinout diagram or an other diagram for your particular model of Arduino. We are going to use the diagram below to build it. But if you are inexperienced each step is explained in detail. First, … Continue reading Use DHT11 temperature and humidity sensor with display

Lego: Build remote controlled Rover car with Arduino brain

Learn how to build a remote controlled Rover car with Lego Mindstorms, with an Arduino ‘brain’, which can be remote controlled via Bluetooth with a phone. This guide uses parts from the Steering rover example on nxtprograms.com. It is also inspired by the NXT Dune Buggy.Lego parts shown here might be of different color depending … Continue reading Lego: Build remote controlled Rover car with Arduino brain

Control an RGB LED from an Android App via Bluetooth

In this example we will control a RGB LED from an Android App via a Bluetooth connection. A HM10 BLE Bluetooth module is connected to an Arduino Uno. This tutorial assumes you already have some experience with Arduino. If not, you might want to follow a basic tutorial and/or install the Arduino software (the IDE). … Continue reading Control an RGB LED from an Android App via Bluetooth

DHT ESP32 Closeup

Tutorial: Create a connected sensor

This tutorial demonstrates how to build a simple sensor and publish its values online (on a web server) using an ESP32 module. We will build an Arduino sketch which will read the sensor values, connect to WiFi, connect to a website and publish the values on the website. The published values can then be used … Continue reading Tutorial: Create a connected sensor

Using the HiTechnic Colorsensor with the EVShield

I have written a class for the HiTechnic Colorsensor, which makes it possible to use this sensor with the EVShield. The example sketch requires the class EVs_HTColorSensor which you can download here. Extract the two files from the zip-file into the EVShield library folder, eg. Documents\Arduino\libraries\EVShield. Now you can use the sensor, as in this … Continue reading Using the HiTechnic Colorsensor with the EVShield
