Interfacing LM35 Temperature Sensor with PIC Microcontroller1

Interfacing LM35 Temperature Sensor with PIC Microcontroller.

The are many cool sensors available now a days, ranging from IR distance sensor modules, accelerometers, humidity sensors, temperature sensors and many many more(gas sensors, alcohol sensor, motion sensors, touch screens). Many of these are analog in nature. That means they give a voltage output that varies directly (and linearly) with the sensed quantity. For […]

Digital Barometer using PIC Microcontroller and MPX4115A Pressure Sensor XC8 schematic

Digital Barometer using PIC Microcontroller and MPX4115A Pressure Sensor – XC8

The Motorola MPX4115A is an atmospheric pressure sensor powered by 5V and delivers and output from ~0.25V to ~4.75V based on the pressure detected at room temperature (25°C). The device provides a linear output based on pressure. As the pressure rises, the output voltage of the sensor rises as well with ~0.25V represents <15 kPa

​Bluetooth Controlled Obstacle Avoidance Robot Car Using PIC32 Microcontroller

​Bluetooth Controlled- Obstacle Avoidance Robot Car Using PIC32 Microcontroller

“Robot-Car: Design Fused with Obstacle Avoidance Technology” Recently, there is an intensive research undertaken in the field of intelligence robotics and autonomous mobile robot applications. Through the this project we wanted to explore this field by building a robot car that can potentially avoid the obstacles. This is a user controlled robot car that has

Robotic Candy Sorter

Introduction Many embedded systems leverage a hierarchical structure in their product architecture for a more robust and efficient product. The more complex the product becomes, it is more preferable to segment tasks according to the processing unit’s role to observe optimal tradeoffs in the system. For instance, it would be impractical for a single processing

Autonomous Foosball Table

I was contacted by somebody who suggested I should enter our senior design project here. Seeing as how we found and used the AX-12s from Trossen Robotics, I figured this would be a great place to post. This project was our senior design, a semester long course that requires a team of electrical and computer

Flex Sensor

HAND-GESTURE CONTROLLED ROBOT

High-Level Design The project can be logical separated into two different components: the glove and the car. The glove is the main way the user will interact with the car. Several fingers on the glove are outfitted with flex sensors to capture events when the user curls or uncurls figers. There are a combination of

Logical structure for the software implementation

EMG Robotic Hand

Introduction The goal of the project was to create a robotic hand that is controlled by sensing the muscular contractions in the arm of the user and to replicate the movements on the robotic hand. Electrodes will be placed on multiple areas on the arm of the user, and will sense the voltage differences of
