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: 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.
