LCD1602 – Using a liquid crystal display LCD with Arduino via I2C

During the building of your projects for Arduino, you’ll often need to read the output data directly from a LCD display. In this article you will see how to mount a LCD display on your Arduino using the I2C communication. Finally you will see how to program it with a simple example showing how to display text on the display

Arduino Genuino WiFi101 a wifi system

Arduino WiFi101 – A WiFi system for Arduino and Genuino

In this article you’ve seen how to integrate your projects on the Arduino with a WiFi system. Have you seen all the necessary tools to do so, as WiFi101 shield for Arduino boards, and the model Arduino MKR1000 (Genuino MKR1000) where WiFi is already integrated. Also you saw how to install and properly configure the firmware and WiFi101 library. In future articles you will see some useful examples on how to use it.

Meccanismo Complesso - Arduino genuino MKR1000

Arduino MKR1000

The world IoT (Internet of Things) is becoming increasingly popular in the world around us. We are still fascinated by this world of sensors and microprocessors that are increasingly interfacing more in our daily lives. If you are reading this article you probably know Arduino UNO and how it has revolutionized our lives, both as makers and as geeks of various kinds … Well Arduino has developed a new much more specialized board for IoT: the MKR1000

Meccanismo Complesso - The PIR motion detector banner 3

PIR motion detector – a sensor for Arduino (2nd part)

This is the second part of the article published about a week ago that concerned the PIR motion sensors, explaining the technical details on their usage and operation (see here). In this article, continuing with the topic, you will see how to use them in a more practical way, or better, by using an Arduino board (in my case an Arduino UNO).

Meccanismo Complesso - InMoov

InMoov – the open source 3D printed robot

  Moov is a Gael Langevin’s project, a French sculptor and designer. His main idea was to be able to carry out a project, such as a robot, through cooperation and sharing of all those who are able to contribute in this area, working through a community of “builders”.

Arduino: measuring the Earth’s magnetic field with the magnetometer HMC5883L

This component (a small chip) HMC5883L, produced by Honeywell, bases its operation on  AMR (Anisotropic Magnetoresistive) technology and allows you to be able to measure both the direction and the magnitude of the earth’s magnetic field. This magnetometer HMC5883L has within 3 magneto-resistive sensors arranged on three perpendicular axes (the Cartesian axes x, y and z).

Lilypad Arduino main

 LilyPad Arduino – the wearable technology

   LilyPad Arduino is one of the many Arduino microcontrollers, but unlike the more well-known Arduino UNO, MEGA and Yun, this little board has very specific characteristics that make it unique. In fact, the LilyPad can be sewn on fabric. In fact, with less than 5€ you can add technology to our garments, but also bags, shoes, diaries, and so on. In this article we will know in detail this board and we’ll see some examples of how it has been applied in some exciting projects.
