Arduino Basics DIY TotourialsPosted: November 25, 2014
The examples of arduino circuits that Paul gave us in PDF are the ones I’m covering in this post. I have done most of these types of examples and tutorials last year when I got my own arduino board, but I have not really used it properly for a project yet. I decided I would run through them all to refresh my knowledge and try to commit the basic stuff to memory which will hopefully allow me to be a bit more spontaneous with the arduino when trying to make something creative.
Working Out Resistors: for this Dennis the TD produced a rhyme or mnemonic which you use to work out your resistors value. I have not quite memorised it yet but it is very useful. It goes as follows:
Some of these we covered in workshop with Dennis but most I went through at home
Multiple Digital Outputs
Analogue input and output
Ultrasound distance sensor
Next I shall experiment with motors and infra-red light sensors – hopefully out of this I should be able to make a theremin which drives a motor making an object move.
