Introduction To Embedded Systems Using Arduino

In this post, we will be introducing embedded systems using Arduino as our target hardware. What is an embedded system you say? An embedded system is a combination of computer hardware and software designed for a particular purpose or functions among a bigger system. The systems can either be programmable or with fixed functionality. Why should you start learning embedded system using arduino. Simply answer it is straight forward cheap and very to understand. Examples of embedded system can be found in devices like, Smart watches Security system Car Alarms Cooking Timer Drones Biometric Verification Systems Digital calculator Wi-fi routers Digital watch Virtual Reality Glass Projectors Digital speedometer ATM’s Machine… Read More

How To Build A Water Level Controller Using Arduino Development Board

Welcome back again, today we will be doing a simple project that can read water level display it on an LCD. And/or perform a certain action. Before we begin I’d like to point out that this little project I will be demonstrating can be accomplished by analog system. So if you just want to cut-off water or any liquid supply at a certain level there is a standalone mechanism that can do just that for you. That been said I will like to point out the disadvantage and advantages of using a micro-controller over the analog counterpart. Comparison between analog and digital water level controllers Analog Digital Cheap Moderately higher… Read More

How To Build an Automatic Hand Sanitizer Dispenser

Corona virus is a very deadly virus that is claiming the lives of thousands of people globally. It started in Wuhan, China and quickly spread to rest of the world. Currently at the time of writing this post there is no known cure of the virus, however there are ways of reducing the risk of infection. Among the ways is the use of alcoholic hand sanitizer which will greatly reduce the risk. Other measures against corona are listed here. Hardware Requirements The hardware component required for project are; Microcontroller (Arduino uno) Proximity Sensor Mechanical Valve Power Supply Liquid Container Relay Module Arduino Uno is not the best micro-controller/ development board… Read More

A Compilation of Arduino Project Topics for Engineering Student

What is Arduino I need an Arduino project topic If you need a project topic read on if you need an explanation on what is an Arduino. You can read the article here Or you can carry on to reading to find interesting project ideas. This post will help guide you for the selection of the final year project. Therefore we came up with a list of project topics to help as a guide. Keep in mind that the project topics list here will require a little bit of creativity to present a unique topic for your institutions. Below is a list of some project topics. The topics presented here… Read More

Ever wondered what is an Arduino? Or are you a maker who is thinking about moving on to the Arduino platform? Which ever your situation this article will get you up and going. WHAT IS AN ARDUINO Arduino is an open source development platform for electronics based on the AVR micro-controllers. It features a simple hardware and software layout. Its products are licensed under the GNU lesser General Public License (LGPL) and the GNU General Public License(GPL). This means that the manufacture of Arduino boards and software distribution by anyone is allowed. Arduino boards are available commercially in preassembled form or as do-it-yourself (DIY) kits. The Arduino LLC has a… Read More

Hello there and welcome to this blog post about how to build a  simple 5v power supply, Most electronic component, logic circuits and micro-controllers/processors require a clean and stable 5 volt power supply to work, some may be flexible to work with a range of voltages; say from 4v to 13v, whereas others are a bit sensitive and choosy they require 5v with little to no tolerance, so one has to be careful of what he is feeding his device To build a stable power supply there are many topologies to consider this will greatly go a long way in determining the size, cost, reliability, and speed of production the… Read More
