Arduino soldering station

DIY soldering station

GreatScottLab‘s new project video is about making a DIY soldering station using Arduino and a standard JBC soldering iron. The video also provides all the basic info you would need to know about soldering station, including thermocouples, AC power control and zero point detection. Watch the project video below:

Garage parking assistant

Garage parking assistant

Parking in your home garage could be a bit of challenge if you have a bigger vehicle. You would like to make sure when you parked, you had enough space to walk around the vehicle. This Instructable describes an Arduino based garage parking assistant that would allow you to park in your best spot every time. It uses an ultrasonic transducer to measure the distance between your car’s bumper and the backside wall of the garage. A control box with visual indicators using bright Green and Red LEDs signals you when you are on the exact spot. Prior to its first use, you

An IoT monitor for your laundry room

Arduino IoT monitor for laundry rooms

An IoT-enabled monitoring device for laundry rooms to provide an alarm and phone feedback when a water leakage is detected. It also monitors dryer vent for over temperature conditions and also notifies about the washer and dryer cycle completion. It uses Arduino, Ethernet shield, Blynk app and bunch of sensors.   This started as a quick project to provide an alarm and phone notification when a water leak was detected in our second floor laundry room. A couple of years ago the drain hose from the washer somehow came out of the drain and the water made a bit of a

Playing Tic Tac Toe against Arduino

Arduino Tic Tac Toe

Nick Koumaris of educ8s.tv has come up with another cool video tutorial showing how to build an Arduino powered Tic Tac Toe game. The gaming interface consists of a colorful LCD touchscreen that allows the user to play this fun game against Arduino. Let’s take a quick look at the code of the project. We need three libraries in order the code to compile. You can find links for the all the libraries in the description below. As you can see, even a simple game like this, require more than 600 lines of code. The code is complex, so I won’t

Arduino powered mini conveyor belt for training purpose

Arduino powered mini conveyor belt

Belt conveyors are key components of industrial automation systems. This modular mini conveyor belt is designed to replicate a miniature version of an industrial automation process that can be used in educational environments for industrial automation illustration using microcontrollers. It consists of a speed controller to drive a stepper motor with up to 2 Amps, and an Arduino board for automating tasks. The speed can be varied from 0 to 300 RPM, and is displayed on a 3-digit seven segment display module. The design was conceived to have the least amount of complex mechanical elements as possible, however, two special non trivial steps
