LED Display Board using Arduino

In this DIY session we are going to use a 32×16 LED dot Matrix display module which is also known as P10 LED Display Module to display a scrolling text by using Arduino UNO. P10 modules can be cascaded to build any size of the advertising board.

Arduino Home Automation using Acoustic Connectivity powered by Chirp

So in this project, we build an Acoustic Home Automation Device in which we will be able to control this smart device without using any wireless connections like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. We will use Actions for Google and Dialogflow to build a test application for our Google Assistant to make it play encoded audio (Chirp). This audio will then be captured by the Arduino nano BLE sense board running the Chirp Arduino Program, based on the message encoded in the data the Arduino board could perform any action like toggling an AC load controlling the RGB LED, etc. It might sound like a lot, but it is relatively simple.

Arduino Sleep Modes and How to use them to Save the Power
Power consumption is a critical issue for a device running continuously for a long time without being turned off. So to overcome this problem almost every controller comes with a sleep mode, which help developers to design electronic gadgets for optimal power consumption. Sleep mode puts the device in power saving mode by turning off the unused module.

Raspberry Pi Bluetooth Speaker: Play Audio wirelessly using Raspberry Pi

In this post we will build Raspberry Pi based Bluetooth Speaker by fusing the power of A2DP, Linux and audio codec to stream the data packets from an audio source to an audio sink wirelessly. To do so we are going to hack a little bit of Linux system and write a piece of code in bash and python and we will be in business.
