Controlling Arduino Using Smartphone via Bluetooth

                Hey there guys, this is your hardware friend Kayode.  Today we will be controlling the arduino input/output pins via Bluetooth. It will be cool to be able to control an appliance remotely from the comfort of your bed, right? I think so too. The Bluetooth module that we will be using is the HC-05 Bluetooth module that comes on a breakout board. So we will connect this module […]

EXPANDING THE I/O PINS OF ARDUINO USING SHIFT REGISTER

Hey there guys, it’s your hardware friend Kayode and today we will be unboxing the functionalities of a shift register. The shift register we will be using is the SN74HC595 from Texas instruments. As you build exciting projects with the arduino, you might already be thinking: “What happens when I run out of pins?”.  Blinking of LEDs in various patterns seems to be the most popular project implemented on the arduino platform. The most popular […]

CONTROLLING AN LED WITH TSOP1738 AND ARDUINO

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Raspberry Pi Tutorial : {Episode 3} Setting up and running in Headless Mode (Part B)

Hi guys, welcome to today’s tutorial, I will be showing you how to view the raspberry pi GUI on your windows 10 computer. I recommend you go through the part A of this episode if you haven’t before going through this. The last tutorial I showed you how to SSH into your raspberry pi using a windows 10 computer, but hey! Not everyone likes to work on the terminal, so you will be able to […]

Sensors Monday: Ad8232 Heart rate sensor with Visualization via Arduino Serial Plotter, MATLAB and Processing

hi guys it’s sensors Monday! Sensors Monday is where we pick a random sensor from the hub360 stock and post an how to use tutorial about it. Today we will be talking about the AD8232 heart rate sensor and as described in the headline,  we will do the visualization using the Arduino serial plotter which is available in all Arduino IDE from version 1.6.7 upwards, Processing and MATLAB  so the scientific folks can also get a […]
