Infrared Remote Control with Microcontroller

This little project will demonstrate how you can use NEC IR protocol based TV, DVD or VCR remote control to control you home appliances like fan bulb or virtually anything. There are lots of projects out there to accomplish this task but i have to write my own code because of too many requests on IR infrared Remote Control Relay Board with PIC12F675 Microcontroller. There are a number of consumer Infrared p ...

Interface single and Dual IR Infrared sensor with PIC18F4550 and LCD

In this another tutorial on sensors  for beginners, we are going to interface single and multiple Infrared IR sensors with Arduino Uno development board, working simultaneously and have the status displayed either on an ( 4X16 LCD ) LCD module (jhd162a) or an LED. We are going to cover three chapters in single tutorial in simple step by step fashion. The purpose of this tutorial is to serve the basics for b ...

Infrared (IR) Object Detection Module Circuit Using IR LED and Photodiode

How to make Infrared (IR) sensor Object Detection Module Circuit Using IR LED and Photodiode The IR Object Detection sensor module is quiet easy to make. This sensor circuit below is a low cost - low range infrared object detection module that you can easily make at home using IR LED's. We will use a photodiode and IR LED to make a simple circuit. IR led looks like a regular LED that you usually see in Tele ...

IR(infrared) Remote Control Relay Board with PIC 12F675 Microcontroller

Introduction  This little project will demonstrate how you can use your old NEC IR protocol based TV,DVD or VCR remote control to control you home appliances like fan bulb or virtually anything. Consumer IR protocols There are a number of consumer Infrared protocols out there and they have been used for every single purpose possible i guess, like PDA laptops and other consumer appliances. RC-5 & RC-6 by ...

Contactless Infrared Thermometer (Pyrometer)

The heart of the device is TI's MSP430RF5728 microcontroller (μC) with FRAM type of memory instead of conventional Flash. This simplifies and speeds up writing to memory and from the user's viewpoint there is no difference between RAM and FRAM access. No preliminary block erase is needed by writing a single byte into FRAM. However, presently FRAM is slower than Flash. In FR57xx devices the maximum FRAM acce ...

Computer controlled infrared transmitter based on PIC

description This is a programmable infrared (remote control) transmitter, which can be controlled from a computer serial port. It is capable of sending many remote control formats, including the Philips RC-5 standard. Exact formats with the timing parameter names are shown on the pictures: operation The controller will accept commands on a serial port. Settings are: 19200 bps, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stopbit, ...

Infrared IR Sensor Interface with PIC18F4550 Microcontroller

IR Sensor Interface with PIC18F4550 In my previous project we have made a simple IR sensor Circuit. In this project, as promised before – we are going to demonstrate a PIC18F4550 microcontroller interface to IR sensor circuit. We are just going to glow few on the pic18f4550 as an example, however you can do some more intelligent operations by adding some more logics to the microcontroller coding. Interfacin ...

Passive Infrared Detector Circuit

The infrared (IR) is invisible radiant energy, electromagnetic radiation that we cannot see with our eyes, but we can sometimes feel on our skin as heat. The infrared light falls just outside the visible spectrum, beyond the edge of what we can see as red. Most of the thermal radiation emitted by objects near room temperature is infrared. The circuit uses a MCP6032 microchip operational amplifier. The MCP60 ...

Lucid Dream/Dream Recall Machine using infrared.

This is my first instructable, so I hope everything is clear and hoping you find it interesting, and would appreciate any feedback, so here I go. I am sill testing this device with other people,  but  personally I have found  my dream recall has improved dramatically, wow! some of the dreams are totally amazing. WARNING. Because of the flashing Led this could pose a problem with people that are affected by ...

Infrared Remote Controlled (RC) Steerable Vibrobot Created by Naghi Sotoudeh

Vibrobots (and bristlebots) are simple robots that use a tiny pager / cellphone vibrator motor (with an eccentric weight) to randomly bounce around -- they are the subject of many Maker / DIY projects as well as some well-known commercial toys (such as the $7.00 Hexbug Nano).  Naghi Sotoudeh, a Hizook reader from Iran, contacted us about his latest project: a remote controlled micro-scale vibrobot (measurin ...
