Arduino Xbee Interfacing

Arduino Xbee Interfacing

in this tutorial we will interface XBee module with Arduino Uno board. The XBee connected with Arduino board will act as a receiver and it will communicate wirelessly with other XBee module which is serially connected with the laptop using a Explorer Board. So lets explore further for Arduino wireless communication using XBee.

How to install Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi

With a boom in IoT field many companies started to design their operating systems exclusively for IoT applications. Microsoft is one of the companies who already released Windows 10 IoT core and it is quiet popular among the hobbyists and industries. So, in this tutorial we will see how to install Windows 10 IoT core in Raspberry Pi and will run a demo application.

How to Build NodeMCU Webserver and control an LED from a Webpage

To take you one step ahead towards IoT development, today we will make our own web server to host a webpage and control any appliance remotely from anywhere in the world. Here we will use ESP12E NodeMCU as webserver, although any ESP module can be used here. Learn more about various ESP modules and their projects here.

Arduino I2C Tutorial

Arduino I2C Tutorial

In this Arduino I2C tutorial we will use I2C communication between two arduino boards and send (0 to 127) values to each other by using potentiometer. Values will be displayed on the 16×2 LCD connected to each of the Arduino.  Here one Arduino will act as Master and another one will act as Slave. So let’s start with the introduction about I2C communication.

Raspberry Pi Headless Setup Guide

Raspberry Pi Headless Setup Guide

Anyone who is interested in learning about computers and electronics will definitely love experimenting with a small and powerful platform “Raspberry Pi”. The only problem is that it doesn’t have a monitor and keyboard-mouse. This is actually isn’t a problem though, because there is a way to setup and work on the Pi without connecting it to a monitor and keyboard. It is called headless because it has no monitor and keyboard connected to it, so it is said to be running headlessly.

Build your own Google Home using a Raspberry Pi

Have you ever thought about a speaker which can be controlled by your voice!!! Yes, Amazon Echo is the one of the most popular voice controlled Speaker, but in competition with it Google Home is also getting popular. Voice assistants becoming more popular as we are heading towards an era of AI based systems. You have heard about Google Assistant, Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa. These all are Voice based AI systems, what makes these different from each other is their ecosystems, and this is where Google Assistant standout the most. Google, Apple and Amazon, all these companies already launched their smart speakers. Google smart speakers are also available in the market. We already covered Raspberry Pi based Amazon Echo, this time we will turn Raspberry Pi into a Google Home Speaker.

Smart Phone Controlled Arduino Mood Light with Alarm

I recently purchased the NeoPixel LED strip and was quite impressed by the way it works. The tiny LED’s have an inbuilt driver IC which helps us to control each LED individually and can produce a wide spectrum of colors. Being a garish person who is obsessed with colours I really loved watching these tiny LED’s changing colors so I decided to build something on my own and leave it coloring my bedroom during night times.

Raspberry Pi Based Jarvis themed Speaking Alarm Clock

“Good morning. It’s 7:00 a.m. The weather in Malibu is 72 degrees with scattered clouds. The surf conditions are fair with waist-to-shoulder high lines. High tide will be at 10:52 a.m”. Every time I hear this voice of Jarvis in the movie Iron Man it sends me chills down my spine. I am sure just like me many would have dreamt of living a life as sophisticated as Tony Stark. But sadly we have not advanced with technology for a miniature Arc reactor or an AI as smart as JARVIS. But it is possible to replace our boring morning alarm clocks with the one that is similar to Jarvis using a Raspberry Pi. At the end of this project, we will create a very basic GUI using which we can set an alarm and when the alarm goes on we will have a voice which tells us the current time and day with some pre-defined text. Sounds cool right!! So let us build one:
