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
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).
With this article, I will start to post a series of tutorials describing the use of several sensors, both for Arduino and for Raspberry Pi. Let’s start with a commonly used PIR sensor for detecting movement within a room or outdoors.
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”.
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 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.
The Parametric Hybrid Wall is a project protected by intellectual property even if free downloadable and editable.
And the day came at the Maker Faire Rome 2014, for the highly anticipated official presentation of the first 3D printer brand Arduino, with the evocative name of “Materia” 101, as if to stimulate the “demiurgic” abilities of future users.
Ardufonino is a mobile opensource created with Arduino, able to make and receive calls, and send and receive messages. In addition, with the implementation of this project, I wanted to lay the groundwork for the construction of a basic telephone system.
