Arduino Relay Lamp

A while ago, I wanted to control a 220v AC lamp using my Arduino board. For the code, it was easy, of course. Just send high and low commands to the lamp pin and all will be working okay. But I was pretty sure there is something missing as the lamp operates at high AC …

Arduino Accelerometer Tutorial

Arduino Accelerometer Tutorial: control a ship bridge using a servo motor

Accelerometer sensors are now in most of our smartphones. Accelerometers give smartphones a wide variety of usage and capabilities that we use daily. But, without even knowing that the one responsible for it is the accelerometer! One of these capabilities is the controllability that the accelerometer give to us. It enables you to control your car …
