Awesome!!, Now its very easy to do projects at home. We have selected few DIY arduino projects for beginners, we have explained everything in specific project page along with code.
Lets see which are the first top 10 projects.. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.
Arduino Solar Tracker
Description: Sun tracking solar panels can absorb more energy from the Sun than fixed panels. Thus, panels with Solar tracking systems are more efficient as they can capture maximum solar energy. In this do-it-yourself type article, a Sun tracking solar panel using light sensors and servo motors, which are controlled by Arduino, is explained.
Arduino 4-Digit 7-Segment LED Display
Description: 7 Segment displays are one of the most commonly used displays. They are used in numerous of applications for displaying vital information. Seven LEDs are arranged in 7 segments, hence the name seven segment LED Display. Here is the article describing working and interfacing of these seven segment displays in the form of 4-digit 7-segment display to the Arduino UNO board.
How To Make A Tilt Sensor With Arduino?
Description: Tilt sensor is used in many applications like aircrafts to measure the tilt angle of the object. They are also used in gaming consoles, security systems and mobile phones to determine the orientation of the device. The principle and working of a Tilt sensor is explained in this article with the help of Arduino.
Home Security Alarm System Using Arduino
Description: Different technologies are used in residential security systems. Here is the one which uses GSM technology. This system intimates the owner through SMS or makes a call if any intruder enters his/her home. The project is developed using Arduino, GSM Module and a PIR motion detection sensor.
Rotary Encoder With Arduino
Description: Rotary encoders are used in radio equipment like armature radio and hand held radios to tune the channel frequencies. Rotary encoder converts the rotational angular movement into digital code and they rotate for 3600 in a non-stop fashion. In this article, the complete working of a rotary encoder is explained along with a simple project using Arduino board in which the rotary encoder is used to control the value on the display.
Arduino Alarm Clock
Description: This project presents an alarm clock using Arduino. Real time clock is used in order to get accurate time. Here, this system displays date and time on an LCD display and we can set the alarm using control buttons. Once the alarm time is reached, the system rings a buzzer.
Arduino Light Sensor
Description: Light Sensor is a device that detects radiant energy or light. There are a wide range of applications of light sensors like security systems, burglar alarms, garage door openers, solar tracking systems etc. In this article, a simple light sensor using Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) is designed and controlled using Arduino.
Arduino Based Digital Thermometer
Description: Thermometer is an instrument used for measuring temperature. Digital thermometers are seen very commonly these days. This project presents design of a digital thermometer using Arduino. It measures the room temperature value using a temperature sensor and displays the measured value using a 16X2 LCD display.
Portable Ultrasonic Range Meter
Description: Measurement of range of any object can be done in many ways. Here is the project using ultrasonic sensor and Arduino for measuring the range of a target. The designed system measures the range in non-contact way and displays the result on a 16X2 LCD display. This is a portable meter so it can be carried anywhere.
Arduino LED Matrix
Description: LED matrix is nothing but two dimensional arrangement of LEDs in rows and columns. This arrangement can be used to display different patterns, symbols, characters and even images. Here is the project, for interfacing an 8X8 LED matrix with Arduino and displaying a message in the form of scrolling text.
