This sensor (Moisture sensor Seeds) is useful for measuring the moisture present in the soil. For example it can be used in gardening, placing it in the ground near the plant. This way you will know if the soil needs to be watered.
With the advent of the IoT (Internet of Things) the web environment is not only a prerogative of HTML pages made to show information for humans, but also an excellent environment for exchanging data between networks of devices and sensors. connected to the network. Today this reality is widespread and there are many services available on the network, SaaS (Software as a Service), specialized precisely for IoT devices, including Adafruit IO.
The DHT11 sensor (and the DHT22 sensor) allows you to measure both the temperature and the level of humidity in the air. Available on the market for a few euros, we find it already mounted on electrical boards that greatly facilitate its use. Let’s see in this article how easy it is to connect this sensor to our Arduino and how to take measurements..
Servo motors are a particular type of motor, which thanks to their characteristics and ease of use, are often used in the first examples of motor control on boards such as Arduino or Raspberry. Model making makes a lot of use of this type of motors and there are many low-cost servo motors available on the market, also useful for educational purposes. In this article we will first see what servo motors are, how to use them and finally how to program Arduino in order to use them with some simple examples.
EEPROMs, which are the acronym for Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory, are special microchips used to store data even after the device on which they are mounted has been turned off. The next time it is turned on, the device will then have data available to be loaded. That is, they are memory devices that, unlike RAM, are able to keep information inside them even after the power supply has been turned off.
There is a lot of talk about musical scales, of music at 440Hz and 432Hz without at times understanding the meaning of it. In this article we will see how to generate musical scales, the theory behind them, and how to create music at 440Hz or 432Hz. We will do it all using an Arduino board, and a small speaker (or buzzer).
Going back to the old boards that I found in a box, I found this Geiger counter perfectly functional to be interfaced as a shield to Arduino. In this article we will see its features together, and at the same time better understanding what a Geiger counter, or radiation sensor, is and how it works.
In this second article on programming with Arduino you will see a fundamental element: the functions and the role they play. At the end of this lesson, you will be able to recognize a function within a sketch, and you will have all the necessary knowledge on how to define them and use them for your purposes and projects.
This article begins a series of posts, or rather, lessons on the programming of Arduino boards. The basic language we will use is the C language, a programming language that has made the history of computing and that many of us have used to develop many projects on many other platforms.
The WiFi101 library allows you to programmatically use WiFi technology on Arduino systems powered by Arduino WiFi Shield 101 or directly using the Arduino MKR1000 board that has integrated WiFi. Needless to say, this library is one of the key building blocks for the development and use of Arduino as a IoT solution.
