Temperature and relative humidity display with adaptive brightness control

The objective of this project is to illustrate a technique of implementing adaptive brightness control to seven segment LED displays. It consists of a closed loop system that continuously assesses ambient light condition using an inexpensive light-dependent resistor (LDR) and uses that information to adjust the brightness of the display. For the proof of concept, the technique is applied to construct a digi ...

Humidity and temperature measurements with Sensirion’s SHT1x/SHT7x sensors (Part 1) using pic microcontoller

Temperature and relative humidity are two very important ambient parameters that are directly related to human comfort. Sometimes, you may be able to bear higher temperatures, if there is a lower relative humidity, such as in hot and dry desert-like environment. However, being in a humid place with not very high temperature may make you feel like melting. This is because if there is high relative humidity, ...

Simple and small temperature fan controll

Some notes: 1. The C3 can be omitted, its purpose was to filter noises picked up by connecting cable between board and sensing transistor, but as the transistor is mounted on the board it become unnecessary. 2. R8 is optional and is for reducing the fan speed. Its value must be calculated according the fan current rating and the shorting track bellow it must be cut with sharp knife. 3. When mounting, make s ...

chipKIT Project 2: Temperature and relative humidity logger

This project is about building a PC-based temperature and relative humidity logger using the chipKIT Uno32 board and the DHT11 sensor. The project setup requires no additional wires (other than the USB cable) and components; the DHT11 sensor is directly plugged into four I/O pins of the Uno32 board and the project is ready to go. This could be a handy and an easiest way to setup an ambient room monitoring s ...

Digital Temperature Sensor Circuit

Temperature sensors are widely used in electronic equipments to display the temperature. You can see the digital clock displaying the room temperature value. It is due to the temperature sensor embedded in it. Generally, temperature value is analog. It is converted to digital value and then it is displayed. This article describes the same converting analog value to a digital value. Digital Temperature Senso ...

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 example in LM35 temperature sensor, the output ...
