Interfacing GPS with Arduino

GPS stands for Global Positioning System. GPS module find the location (latitude, longitude, altitude) by comparing the time taken for receiving signals from satellites in its vicinity. GPS offers a great accuracy and also provides other data besides position coordinates. Components RequiredArduino Uno GPS Breadboard Connecting WiresHardware Circuit Diagram Interfacing GPS with Arduino – Circuit Diagram ConnectionsConnect TX pin of GPS Module to pin number 4 of Arduino Uno. Connect RX pin of GPS Module to pin number 3 of Arduino Uno. Connect Red wire (5V pin) of GPS module to [...]

Interfacing PIR Sensor with Arduino - Practical Implementation

Interfacing PIR Motion Sensor with Arduino

A PIR sensor is generally known to the world as a motion sensor or motion detector. So in this project we are going to use the PIR motion sensor to detect motion. Here we are going to sense movement of human by using Passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor). Using the feedback from the sensor we will control an LED with the help of Arduino Uno. Components RequiredArduino Uno PIR Sensor 330Ω Resistor LED Breadboard Connecting WiresHardware Circuit Diagram Interfacing PIR Motion Sensor with Arduino – Circuit Diagram Circuit Explanation Connection between PIR Sensor [...]

Interfacing GSM Modem with Arduino - Practical Implementation

Interfacing GSM Module with Arduino

In this article, I am going to explain about interfacing of GSM Module with Arduino. Interfacing a GSM module to Arduino is pretty simple. We have to make only 3 connections between the GSM module and Arduino. For the working demonstration we will be sending an SMS to a particular number whenever a switch is pressed. Components RequiredArduino Uno GSM Modem Switch 1kΩ Resistor Breadboard Connecting WiresHardware Circuit Diagram Interfacing GSM Modem with Arduino – Circuit Diagram ConnectionsConnect TX pin of GSM Module to RX pin of Arduino Uno. Connect RX pin [...]

Interfacing Moisture Sensor with Arduino

Interfacing Soil Moisture Sensor with Arduino

Introduction In this article, we are going to interface a Soil Moisture Sensor with Arduino Uno. We will measure the moisture content of soil in pot or farming field and by using this we can pour water into field based on preset values. This sensor measures the volumetric content of water inside the soil (based on resistance/conductivity) and gives the moisture level as output. The sensor is equipped with both analog and digital output, so it can be used in both [...]

Interfacing Rain Sensor with Arduino

In this article we are going to explain about interfacing Rain Sensor with Arduino. The rain sensor module is an easy tool for rain detection. It operates as a switch when raindrop falls through the raining board and also it measures rainfall intensity. The module features, a rain sensing board and the control board that is separate for more convenience, power indicator LED and an adjustable sensitivity though a potentiometer. Rain Sensor Module Raindrop sensor is basically a board on which [...]

Controlling of DC Motors using MPU5060

In this project, we are going to control the speed of 2 DC motors using the MPU6050. MPU6050 is an accelerometer and Gyro sensor. By moving the sensor in upward or downward direction, the speed of the motors will increase or decrease. By moving the sensor in upward direction, the speed of first motor will increase and the speed of other motor will decrease. Similarly, by moving the sensor in downward direction, the speed of first motor will increase and [...]
