Controlling DC Motors using IR Remote

Controlling DC Motors using Arduino and IR Remote

In this project we will learn how to decode IR remote signals with Arduino and to control DC motors depending on the button pressed. For demonstrating the working we are using five buttons on the remote. When the next button on the remote is pressed, motors will rotate in clockwise direction. And if the previous button is pressed motors will rotate in anticlockwise direction. We can also control these two motors individually using left, right arrow buttons and stop [...]

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 [...]

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 DHT22 [...]
