How to Use a PIR Sensor – Arduino Tutorial

pir sensor

What is a PIR sensor? PIR or “Passive Infra-Red” sensor is a “Pyroelectric IR Sensor” which generates energy when exposed to heat. Everything emits some low level of radiation, the hotter the object is, the more radiation is emitted. When a human or an animal (with IR radiation wavelength of 9.4µMeter) approaches the sensors range […]

How to use Servo Motor – Arduino Tutorial

servo motor

Servo motors are great devices that can turn to a specified position. Usually, they have a servo arm that can turn 180 degrees. Using the Arduino, we can tell a servo to go to a specified position and it will go there. As simple as that! Servo motors were first used in the Remote Control […]

LM35 Temperature Sensor with Arduino

lm-35 sensor

The LM35 series are precision integrated-circuit temperature devices with an output voltage linearly proportional to the Centigrade temperature. LM35 is three terminal linear temperature sensor from National semiconductors. It can measure temperature from -55 degree Celsius to +150 degree Celsius. The voltage output of the LM35 increases 10mV per degree Celsius rise in temperature. LM35 […]

Using an LDR Sensor With Arduino

ldr sensor

I am going to show you how to use a LDR or Light Dependent resistor to turn on and off another circuit or a LED. Wouldn’t it be really cool if whenever a room gets dark, a light bulb automatically turns ON and eliminates the darkness? In this very simple project, I am focusing on […]
