Learn To Operate IR Sensor With Arduino

Thumbnail By DeepLift

Arduino UNO is a microcontroller board- it is the brain of any electronics project. IR sensor, on the other hand, is an infrared rays transmitter and receiver. In the following project, we will learn the working principle of IR sensor followed by its application as a discriminator between black and white surfaces and as an obstacle detector with Arduino UNO.

IR Sensor

FC-51 IR Sensor emits and detected infrared radiations. IR radiations are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, with wavelength higher than that of visible light, and are generally invisible to the human eye.

The IR sensor consists of:

  1. IR Emitter LED: Emits infrared light
  2. IR Receiver…


Learn To Use Input And Output Devices With Arduino Board

Introduction

Arduino is often used with input and output peripherals. Common output components used with Arduino in mini-projects are LED and Buzzer. Similarly, a potentiometer is a commonly used input device for analog input to Arduino. In this article, we will dive into understanding these components and making exciting mini projects using these.

Using LED As Output


Beginner’s Guide to learning Arduino-Technology

Arduino UNO is a microcontroller board- it is the brain of any electronics project. In the following project, we will use Arduino UNO to blink an LED and give a visual demonstration of how high voltages can fuse the LED.

Setting up Hardware:

  1. Arduino UNO
  2. Arduino Cable
  3. BreadBoard
  4. LED
  5. Resistor
  6. Jumper Wires

Beginner’s Guide to Learning Linux/Ubuntu-Operating System

Computers can have multiple users. You and your brother may be sharing your first computer, but have different user accounts set up. Similarly, in school, you and your colleagues may have individual accounts set up on the same desktop. Users and groups have different permissions to access files and programs on a computer to ensure the privacy and security of individuals on that device. In the following article, we’ll discuss users, groups and their permissions in Linux based operating system-Ubuntu, and explore their respective commands for Linux Terminal.

Users and Groups

The file that stores information of users on a Linux machine is…
