Pulse Sensor and Arduino – Interfacing

jojo March 20, 2017 10 Comments
In this article, we are going to interface a Pulse Sensor with Arduino. The pulse sensor we are going to use is a plug and play heart rate sensor. This sensor is quite easy to use and operate. Place your finger on top of the sensor and it will sense the heartbeat by measuring the change in light from the expansion of capillary blood vessels. Pin Out – Pulse Sensor The pulse sensor has three pins which are as described...

Interface Arduino and Color Sensor – RGB Sensor TCS230

jojo March 16, 2017 2 Comments
In this article, we are going to read the colors using the TCS230 color sensor (RGB Sensor) and Arduino Uno. The TCS 230 color sensor senses the color light by using the photodiodes. The sensor converts the readings from the photodiode into a square wave by using the light to frequency converter. The frequency of these waves is directly proportional to the light intensity. Then the Arduino reads these square waves and gives us the values of the RGB colors....

Arduino and Soil Moisture Sensor -Interfacing Tutorial

jojo July 31, 2018 21 Comments
In this article, we are going to interface a Soil moisture sensor FC-28 with Arduino. This sensor measures the volumetric content of water inside the soil and gives us the moisture level as output. The sensor is equipped with both analog and digital output, so it can be used in both analog and digital mode. In this article, we are going to interface the sensor in both modes. So let’s begin our tutorial on interfacing Arduino and Soil moisture...

How to Make an LED Scrollbar Using Arduino Nano

jojo February 17, 2018 2 Comments
In this tutorial, we are going to build an LED Scroll Bar as shown in the image given below. The project is designed to flash Ten LED strips ( by giving different lighting patterns for each strip) with the help of a control board. We have created a simple GIF animation of the project to give you a good idea of what we are going to build. So here take a look at the animation of working model of...

Interfacing 8×8 LED Matrix with Arduino

john June 15, 2016 8 Comments
LED matrix displays can be used to display almost anything. Most modern LED sign boards uses various types of matrix boards with controllers. In this tutorial we are going to interface a single color 8×8 LED matrix with Arduino and display a few characters in it. 8×8 matrix consists of 64 dots or pixels. There is a LED for each pixel and these LEDs are connected to total of 16 pins. You can identify the pin out and circuit...

Arduino and 7 Segment Display – Interfacing Tutorial

jojo March 3, 2016 3 Comments
In this article, we are publishing a tutorial on how to interface seven segment LED display to Arduino. Seven segment displays are used in many embedded system and industrial applications where the range of outputs to be shown is known beforehand. Basic 1 digit seven segment display can show numbers from 0-9 and a few characters. 7 segment displays are of different types; especially they differ in the number of digits/character it can display. Basically a 7 segment display is...

LM35 and Arduino – Temperature Measurement and Display on LCD

jojo March 10, 2016 19 Comments
In this article, we are presenting a tutorial on how to interface LM35 and Arduino along with its program. Once we successfully interface arduino and lm35, we will go on to build a temperature display using arduino and a 16×2 LCD module which constantly monitors temperature around the measurement field/range of LM35 and displays the same on LCD module. So lets get to building the project! LM35 is an analog, linear temperature sensor whose output voltage varies linearly with...

Burglar Alarm using Arduino and PIR Sensor- with SMS Alarm using GSM Module

jojo December 23, 2016 52 Comments
In this tutorial, we are building an interesting application using Arduino and PIR Sensor. A Burglar Alarm – is basically an intruder alarm or an anti theft alarm. So this project is all about building an anti theft alarm or an intruder alarm using Arduino and PIR sensor. It is possible to enhance this project with many features like adding a GSM module to send SMS alerts to specified mobile numbers when an intruder is detected (when a motion...

PIR Sensor - Motion sensor/detector to Arduino

Interfacing PIR Sensor to Arduino – Connect Motion Sensor/Detector to Arduino

jojo February 24, 2016 3 Comments
In this article, we are going to learn how to interface/connect PIR Sensor or Passive Infrared Sensor to Arduino. We have written a tutorial on how to interface PIR sensor to 8051 previously in CircuitsToday! So a PIR sensor which is also known as Pyroelectric sensor or Passive Infrared Sensor is basically an electronic sensor employed in motion detecting applications. A PIR sensor detects or measures IR (Infra Red) radiations emitted by any object inside its field of view....

Interfacing MQ2 to Arduino- Gas Sensor for Smoke-Butane-CH4 and LPG

jojo February 23, 2016 4 Comments
In this article, we are going to learn how to interface MQ2 Gas Sensor with Arduino. MQ2 is basically a general purpose gas sensor (similar to MQ5) which can sense a broad range of gases like LPG, Butane, Methane(CH4), Hydrogen and in addition to these gases MQ2 is sensitive to smoke as well. In a previous article, we have wrote a tutorial on Interfacing MQ5 Gas sensor to Arduino. Both MQ5 and MQ2 are basically gas sensors but their...
