Arduino Wireless Mobile Data Logger with Sonar and Xbee

Measures and logs temperature and light levels.   Two mode of operation: Automated – moves on its own avoids obstacles using distance sensor. Also plots the distance/sonar data into processing Manual – Manual Control using keyboard or buttons on the application.   Wireless control and data acquisition: Communications using to Xbee modules. Base Xbee used to transmit data form custom processing application. Base Xbee used to received sensor data sent from the mobile data logger.   Processing Application: Display data received from mobile data logger Display sonar data when in automated mode Send control data to mobile data logger using…

Arduino Tutorial – LCD Display Control

The LCDs have a parallel interface, meaning that the microcontroller has to manipulate several interface pins at once to control the display. The interface consists of the following pins: – A register select (RS) pin that controls where in the LCD’s memory you’re writing data to. You can select either the data register, which holds what goes on the screen, or an instruction register, which is where the LCD’s controller looks for instructions on what to do next. – A Read/Write (R/W) pin that selects reading mode or writing mode – An Enable pin that enables writing to the registers…

Arduino Tutorial – Stepper Motor Control with L293D Motor Driver

In this tutorial you will learn how to control a stepper motor using your L293D motor control chip   Stepper motors fall somewhere in between a regular DC motor and a servo motor. They have the advantage that they can be positioned accurately, moved forward or backwards one ‘step’ at a time, but they can also rotate continuously.  

Arduino Tutorial – Stepper Motor Control with Potentiometer

This tutorial is all about tuning the speed of a stepper motor using a potentiometer. The idea is to up or down the speed of a stepper motor using with analog read. Theoretically analog input to a digital output, we’re going to use this concept to control the speed of a running stepper motor.   The Stepper motor used here is a rusty old EPOCH (5 wires) stepper motor, which is a unipolar stepper.   Use the analog input with the help potentiometer to control the delay in-between each steps of the stepper motor. Shorter the delay in-between each steps…

Arduino Tutorial – Servo Motor Control with Motor Shield

Hobby servos are the easiest way to get going with motor control. They have a 3-pin 0.1″ female header connection with +5V, ground and signal inputs. The motor shield simply brings out the PWM output lines from Arduino pins 9 and 10 to two 3-pin headers so that its easy to plug in and go. They can take a lot of power so a 9V battery wont last more than a few minutes! The nice thing about using the onboard PWM is that its very precise and goes about its business in the background. You can use the built in…
