Hey there guys, it’s your hardware friend kayode and together today we will be focusing on the TSOP1738 IR receiver. The TSOP1738 belongs to the TSOP17xx family. The xx represents the modulating frequency which in the case of the TSOP1738 is 38Khz. IR Transmitter and receiver is used to control any device wirelessly. We make use of them daily in our various homes. Television remote and Television are the best example of IR transmitter and […]

DIY Greeting Card

In the spirit of the Yuletide season, we thought it’d be nice for makers of all ages to make something for the season. So today we will be creating an awesome DIY Electronics based greeting cards. Asides the fact that this will teach the concepts of basic electronics, it may be an opportunity for families to bond by building something together. So grab the cardboard Dads and the Markers Moms, lets have some fun. Components […]

Automatic water level indicator and controller using ultrasonic sensor (HC-SR04)

  Hey guys, this is kayode and together over the next couple of weeks we will be unboxing some really cool projects ranging from home automation systems to home security systems. At the end of each project am very sure that putting together your own project will not be a problem. Let’s get started. In our day to day activities, it is common to have shortage of water or overflow of water in our storage […]

Arduino Kit Tutorials: Measuring Temperature and Humidity with DHT11

Introduction Another cool sensor present in the Hub360 Arduino kit is the DHT11 temperature and Humidity sensor. The DHT11 is a low cost temperature and humidity sensor that operates using the 1-wire protocol. it features a calibrated digital signal output with the temperature and humidity sensor complex. Its technology ensures the high reliability and excellent long-term stability. This sensor includes a resistive element and a sense of wet NTC temperature measuring devices. It has excellent quality, […]

Arduino Kit Tutorials: Measuring Distance with the Ultrasonic Sensor

Hi guys, this is the second tutorial in a series of tutorial planned to get beginners up to speed with electronics using the hub360 Arduino Kit. For this tutorial, we will be focusing on another interesting sensor present in our arduino kit, the versatile ultrasonic sensor. We will learn the principles of operation of this sensor and figure out how to use it with arduino.   Principle Of Operation The Ultrasonic sensor sends out high […]

Arduino Kit Tutorials: Interfacing the PIR Motion Sensor with Arduino

Hi guys, this is the first tutorial in a series of tutorials to get beginners up to speed on using the components present in our Arduino kit.To follow this tutorial series, I will advise you grab one of the kits from our store here. Today’s tutorial will focus on the PIR Motion sensor and we will discuss its principle of operation and how to interface it with the Arduino. Introduction PIR(passive Infrared) Motion sensors allow the […]

Raspberry Pi 3 interfacing with 1602 LCD Display

hi guys, welcome to this tutorial. It’s safe to say 80% of the projects you will do with the raspberry pi will be without a screen due to its effectiveness as a server, or at most, the projects will be with a touch screen or a monitor, so this tutorial could be said to exist for those 20% projects for which we may need the 1602 LCD Display. In this tutorial, I will show you […]

Raspberry Pi 3 UART Communication with NEO 6mv2 Gps Module (Part B): Email Notification

Hi guys, Last tutorial, we got the data from the GPS module and did all the setup necessary to allow the PI communicate via Serial as we disabled the Mini UART and enabled the PL011 UART. For this second part of the tutorial, we will learn how to send data from the Pi to an email address and for this tutorial, we will be sending the GPS location data converted to a link, so the […]

Raspberry Pi 3 UART Communication with NEO 6mv2 Gps Module (Part A)

hi guys, today we will focus on doing something a lot of people have found difficult to do with the raspberry pi 3; Connecting components that use the UART communication mode, to the raspberry pi 3. The SoCs used on the Raspberry Pis have two built-in UARTs, a PL011  and a mini UART. They are implemented using different hardware blocks, so they have slightly different characteristics and capabilities. From the Raspberry pi 3 and pi zero(the […]

Arduino Tutorials {Episode 3}: DigitalIO 2

Hi guys, this week we’re going to go a bit further in DigitalIO, Last week we explored the blink project, where we made an LED Blink, pretty simple and straightforward. What we have for this week is tocontrol an LED based on input from a push button. Basically to toggle the LED state using the push button. So let’s get started, shall we? Required components Arduino UNO (or basically any Arduino board) An LED (Blue, […]
