Arduino self balancing robot – Update #4

<strong>🕒 2 min read</strong> Coming up, another short update on my self balancing robot! In this update, I focused solely on improving the connections, structure and placement of the components on the robot. (P.S. I have uploaded the...

Arduino self balancing robot – Update #2 & #3

<strong>🕒 4 min read</strong> After much consideration, I think I will try to make a self balancing robot first before a ball balancing robot as to get a better understanding of “balancing” algorithms first. Hence, I’m working on...

Arduino ball balancing robot – Update #1

<strong>🕒 2 min read</strong> This is the 1st update of the robot since I last posted on this project (I’m rather busy with school & other stuff). In this update, I have roughly sketched out the design of...

Arduino ball balancing robot – Update #0

<strong>🕒 < 1 m read</strong> Being recently awed by the idea of a robot that can balance on a ball, I want to attempt to create this type of robot with an arduino.

Touchless 3D Tracking Interface using Aluminium foils

<strong>🕒 < 1 m read</strong> I happened to visit the Makezine website one day and found out this interesting project, which requires one to only use some aluminium foils to do 3D tracking of the current location of our...

EMF Detector

<strong>🕒 2 min read</strong> Check out the intensity of emf produced by an electrical appliance using this EMF detector! This arduino EMF detector project is based on Aaron ALAI original EMF Detector project.

Simple Electronic Compass

<strong>🕒 2 min read</strong> This is a simple electronic compass display project, which uses the HM55B compass module to determine the North direction. The LEDs will be used to indicate where North is. When the module is facing north, the...

Controlling RGB LED using Bluetooth Bee

<strong>🕒 < 1 m read</strong> This project uses the Arduino Uno board and a bluetooth bee. In this project, the RGB LED on the breadboard is controlled using a phone via bluetooth terminal, where different input changes the color...

Hand Tracking using Infrared Compound Eye

<strong>🕒 3 min read</strong> In this project, I decided to explore using IR sensors to perform a simple motion tracking of a hand instead of using a camera as to simplify the tracking.  The location of the hand will then...

LED switcher using a DPDT Relay and a potentiometer

<strong>🕒 < 1 m read</strong> In this project, 2 LEDs will be switched on and off using the DPDT relay. (or flip-flopping the LEDs) This is another simple project to further explore the features of Arduino.
