Simple Tilt Sensor Switch Circuit

Simple Tilt Sensor Switch Circuit

A tilt sensor is a sensor which opens and closes an electrical circuit when it is inclined beyond at certain angle. It can be used in tilt prevention devices, an alarm circuit and in many DIY projects. There are different types of Tilt sensor modules, for sensing the tilt the module can have a ball switch or mercury switch. In this circuit, we are using a Mercury-based tilt sensor.

Digital Thermometer using a PIC Microcontroller and DS18B20

Generally, the LM35 temperature sensor is used with microcontrollers to measure the temperature because it is cheap and easily available. But LM35 gives analog values and we need to convert them into digital using ADC (Analog to Digital Converter). But today we are using DS18B20 temperature sensor in which we don’t need an ADC conversion to get the temperature. Here we will use PIC Microcontroller with DS18B20 to measure the Temperature.

Tutorial for Beginners – DC Motor Speed Control using Arduino & Potentiometer

DC motor is the most used motor in Robotics and electronics projects. For controlling the speed of DC motor we have various methods, but in this project we are controlling DC Motor speed using PWM. In this project we will be able to control the speed of DC motor with potentiometer and we can adjust the speed by rotating the knob of Potentiometer.

Interface GPS Module with PIC Microcontroller

Interface GPS Module with PIC Microcontroller

We are going to use G7020 GPS module which is made by U-blox. We will receive Longitude and latitude of a particular position from satellite and will display the same on a 16×2 Character LCD. So here we will interface GPS with PIC16F877A microcontroller by microchip.

TVOC and CO2 Measurement using Arduino and CCS811 Air Quality Sensor

In this tutorial, we are going to show you that how to sense TVOC and CO2 using CCS811 air quality sensor with Arduino. Also, you will learn to interface CSS811 with Arduino.

Arduino Countdown Timer

Arduino Countdown Timer

Here, in this tutorial we will show you how to make a Countdown Timer using Arduino. Here we are not using any Real Time Clock (RTC) module for getting the time. The time duration is provided by the user with the help of Keypad and 16×2 LCD. And when the timer reaches to Zero, alert sound will be produced with the help of Buzzer.

DIY Arduino Inclinometer using MPU6050

The MPU6050 is an IC 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope combined into one unit. It also houses a temperature sensor and a DCM to perform a complex task. The MPU6050 is commonly used in building Drone and other remote robots like a self-balancing robot. In this project we will learn how to use the MPU6050 is built an Inclinometer or Spirit Leveller. As we know an inclinometer is used to check if a surface is perfectly leveled or not, they are available either as sprit bubble ones or as digital meters. In this project, we are going to build a Digital Inclinometer which can be monitored using an Android application. The reason for using a remote display like a mobile phone is that we can monitor the values from MPU6050 without having to look at the hardware, this would come very handy when the MPU6050 is placed on a drone or some other inaccessible locations.
