Temperature Data Logger with SD Card

Temperature and Humidity Data Logger using Arduino

In this project, we are going to make a temperature and relative humidity data logger. Arduino is the brain of this project. DHT22 sensor is used for sensing temperature and relative humidity. Arduino Uno is programmed to read temperature, humidity values from DHT22 sensor and save it to a file in an SD Card. So whenever required we can take the SD Card for viewing data. Here we will take data from SD card and import it to excel [...]

Temperature Controlled Fan using Arduino

Temperature Controlled Fan using Arduino

Here we are going to make a temperature controlled DC fan. DHT22 sensor is used to sense the room temperature and then we adjust speed of a DC fan/motor accordingly using PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). Arduino Uno is the heart of this project and a L293D driver IC is used to drive the DC fan/motor. Components Required Arduino Uno L293D Motor Driver IC DHT22 Sensor 16x2 LCD Display DC Fan/motor 9V Battery 10KΩ Potentiometer 220Ω Resistor Breadboard Circuit Diagram Explanation First we can connect L293D [...]

Weather Station using Arduino - Web Server - IoT

Arduino Weather Station Web Server

In this tutorial we are going to make a weather station that will tell us temperature, humidity and heat index of a particular location. It will show these values in a web browser. You can monitor these data by entering the IP address in a mobile, computer or any other device which supports a web browser. This project is done using Arduino Uno, ESP8266 and DHT22 sensor. DHT22 sensor will read temperature and humidity information. ESP8266 WiFi module is used to establish network communication. Arduino [...]

IoT Data Logger using Arduino and ESP8266

IoT Data Logger using Arduino and ESP8266

Today we are going to make an IoT WiFi data logger using Arduino, ESP8266 WiFi module and DHT22 temperature humidity sensor. Arduino is reading temperature and humidity sensed by DHT22 and sending it to an internet server using the ESP8266 WiFi module. Here we are using ThingSpeak as the internet server. ThingSpeak is an open source IoT application which can be used as an Internet or Intranet Server. It is providing HTTP API for data logging, location tracking, status updates etc. Components Required [...]

Home Automation System using Arduino and ESP8266

Home Automation using Arduino and ESP8266 Module

In this project we are going to make a home automation system using ESP8266 WiFi module and Arduino Uno. Using this we will be able to control lights, electric fan and other home appliances through a web browser using your PC or mobile. These AC mains appliances will be connected to relays which are controlled by the Arduino. ESP8266 and Arduino together acts as a Web Server and we will send control commands through a Web Browser like Google [...]

Digital Door Lock using Arduino

Digital Door Lock using Arduino

As thefts are increasing day by day security is becoming a major concern nowadays. In this project we will make a digital door lock system with keypad using Arduino Uno. It will open your door only when the right password is entered and it will start beeping when a wrong password is entered. Components Required 4x4 keypad LCD Arduino Uno Push Pull Solenoid TIP 120 NPN transistor Power Supply Breadboard 1KΩ, 220Ω Resistor 10KΩ Potentiometer Buzzer Connecting wires Circuit Diagram & Explanation First [...]

HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor

Interfacing HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor with PIC Microcontroller

HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Distance Sensor is a popular and low cost solution for non-contact distance measurement function. It is able to measure distances from 2cm to 400cm with an accuracy of about 3mm.

Automatic Power Factor Controller using Microcontroller

The thirst for new sources of energy is unquenchable, but we seldom realize that we are wasting a part of the electrical energy every day due to the lagging power factor in the inductive loads we use. Hence there is an urgent need to avoid this wastage of energy. Before getting into the details of Power factor correction, lets just brush our knowledge about the term "power factor". In simple words power factor basically states how far the energy provided [...]
