Arduino: Light Indicator with multi-LED bar graph and light sensor.

October 25, 2012 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch that implements a light indicator with the help of an external sensor (photoresistor) for the recognition of light, and a bar graph of many LEDs used as a rating indicator. Furthermore, if the indicator reaches the last rating which indicates that there is “perfect” light (the maximum light that the sensor can identify) then it plays a melody with a piezo speaker located in the system.

Arduino: Digital Indicator of Alcohol Content.

August 29, 2010 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch that implements the logic of a digital indicator of alcohol content. This system can be used as a device for breath test. There is the MQ-3 sensor in the system to detect alcohol. A suitable multi-LED bar graph (which is driven by a 8-bit shift register 74HC595) is used as an indicator rating the alcohol content. If the alcohol content is high, then a tune is produced through a suitable piezo speaker. Finally, there are two buttons in the system for functions such as ON, OFF and a LED which is the operation indicator.

Arduino: Light Indicator with multi-LED bar graph, light sensor and 8-bit shift register 74HC595.

This project refers to an Arduino sketch that implements a light indicator with the help of an external sensor (photoresistor) for the recognition of light (the sensor acts as input device for the Arduino), and a bar graph of many LEDs used as a rating indicator (the indicator functions as an output device for the Arduino).

In this project we use an 8-bit shift register (namely the 74HC595). This way we can drive 8 different LEDs in the output committing only three PINS of the Arduino.

Arduino: Control multi-LED bar graph with a potentiometer and calibration process.

June 29, 2010 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch which with the help of an external potentiometer (input device) can control a bar graph of many LEDs. Finally, when the sketch starts running, it calibrates the potentiometer (and so there should be a spin at both ends manually).
