Automatic Bottle Filling System using Arduino

Here we are going to design a prototype for Automatic Bottle Filling Machine using Arduino Uno, conveyor belt, solenoid valve, IR sensor, and Stepper motor. Belt conveyor is driven by a stepper motor at a constant preset speed. The stepper motor will keep driving the belt until an IR sensor detects the presence of a bottle on the belt. We used the IR sensor as an external trigger. So whenever the IR sensor goes high it sends a trigger to Arduino to stop the motor and turn on the solenoid valve.

ESP8266 based Smart Plug to Make Your Home Appliances IoT Enabled

Ever since I started to work with the ESP Wi-Fi Modules, I always wanted to build a smart Wi-Fi socket that enables me to control my AC loads wirelessly through smart phone. While products like these are already available in the market, like the popular Moko WiFi Smart Plug or Sonoff, they are a bit expensive and on top of that it doesn’t give you the joy of building your own.  So, in this project I will show you how you can build your very own Smart plug using ESP8266 Wi-Fi module. The device that we built can easily be plugged into any exiting AC socket and then on the other end you can connect the actual load simply by plugging it into this socket on our device. After that just keep the main switch of your socket always on, and you can control your Load directly from your Smartphone. Fun right? Check out the project at below link ….

Arduino Controlled Musical Fountain using Sound Sensor

The basic idea of this Arduino Water Fountain is to take an input from any external sound source like mobile, iPod, PC etc., sample the sound and break it down to different voltage ranges, then use the output to turn on various Relay. We first used a condenser mic based sound sensor module to perform on the sound source to split the sounds into different voltage ranges. Then the voltage will be fed to op-amp to compare sound level with a particular limit. The higher voltage range will correspond to a relay switch ON which comprises a musical water fountain operating to the beats and rhythms of the song. So here we are building this Musical Fountain using Arduino and sound sensor.

DIY Arduino Based Color Sorter Machine using TCS3200 Color Sensor
Here in this tutorial we will make a color sorting machine using a color sensor TCS3200, some servo motors and Arduino board. This tutorial will include the sorting of colored balls and keeping them in the relevant color box. The box will be in the fixed position and the servo motor will be used to move the sorter hand to keep the ball in the relevant box.

Send/Receive SMS with STM32F103C8 and SIM800C GSM Module
In this tutorial, SIM800C GSM module will be interfaced with STM32F103C8 ARM microcontroller to send and receive Text Messages (SMS) from the cellular mobile number configured in the program. To display the messages received and sent, one 16×2 LCD will be used with two Push Buttons which will initiate sending and receiving of text messages after pressing the relative button.

Working on a new easy to build design. It turns out this thing is pretty agile.
