Check out these Arduino projects built by our customers. They range from data logging, to animatronic displays, to projects that mess with your cat.
I hope you’ll find the following projects as interesting as I do!
Sometimes you have a problem, and you just need a solution. Jack Tinsley (a customer of PEA) had a problem with the power-cabinet in his Camper-Van. In his own words: The real problem happens when I’m driving on a long trip, I don’t know how hot it is in the power cabinet or what the…Read More
The need for speed. It’s been around for a long time… I remember reading Dead Souls by Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol, and being amazed by Chichikovs love of driving fast in a horse drawn carriage: “Selifan flourished his whip and shouted, “Hi, hi!” as the inequalities of the road jerked him vertically on his seat; and meanwhile,…Read More
What better way to display your team pride than wielding a 6ft tall, NeoPixel blazing trident during the competition? Especially if you’re a member of the FIRST FRC Team 4296 “Trident Robotics”! Mark Balla, a Mentor to the FIRST team, helped his team create this awesome Arduino controlled trident. We asked Mark some questions…Read More
Charles, you built what?! An autonomous robot that responds to voice commands and reacts to its environment? With Arduino, single board computers, and a metric ton of sensors? “Wow!” Charles, a computer technician from New Zealand, is an electronics and programming enthusiast who brought modern technologies to bear (like voice recognition) to his personal Arduino…Read More
Chris Regini, a middle school teacher in New York, has been bringing STEM (and Arduino) to his classroom in full force. His current collaboration with his students is a vertical hydroponics monitoring and automation system that uses several Arduino and a Raspberry Pi 3. We asked Chris some questions about this project and this is…Read More
Ever done any homebrewing? If you have, it’s hard not to have Arduino pass through your mind as a tool to help in the process. The following Arduino homebrew project is the result of a ton of hard work and dedication from one of our customers, Klas Bergman. Klas has used an Arduino Mega, temperature sensors,…Read More
One of our customers, John Simister, had a problem. Check out what John did in his own words (I have added emphasis and headings to break it up). The Problem “I have just completed a project that I have been working on for a couple of months.Read More
A student of our course, John Hart, is at it again with an interesting new project that uses an ESP8266 to control the temperature of the family pet gecko habitat. The ESP8266 is a low cost WiFi module that can be programmed right from the Arduino IDE. It’s great, because all the Arduino code you…Read More
Arduino can be a great tool for making…well…more tools. Because sometimes the right tool for the job makes all the difference. And sometimes that tool doesn’t exist quite how you want it to and needs made. That’s what Robert Hausner (a student of our course) did when he built his Arduino controlled CAT6 Cable tester…Read More
Arduino in color Jaco Coetsee put this project together to better understand how RGB values work together to make color. The RGB color scheme is used in HTML coding create the colors we see on websites, and it’s a great way to illustrate the properties of colors in general. He also got to program an…Read More
