Getting a WS2812 based led strip to work using the FastLED library.
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): 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 stepper motors you do need a … 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
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
