Sensors Shields

This tutorial illustrates the sensor shields supported by 1Sheeld,If this is your first time using 1Sheeld, we recommend you start with the getting started tutorial first to know how to use 1Sheeld.

Introduction

Sensor shields allow you to tap into your smartphone’s sensors and use them for prototyping with Arduino, you can get information from the surrounding environment and use it to trigger a certain action.

Sensors Shields List:

  1. Color Detector shield
  2. Proximity shield
  3. Pressure shield
  4. Orientation shield
  5. Light shield
  6. Magnetometer shield
  7. Accelerometer shield
  8. Temperature shield
  9. Gyroscope shield
  10. Gravity shield
  11. GPS shield

Use 1Sheeld Library and write your sketch using the sensors you need in your application, get information about the data and with a few lines of code you can trigger Arduino to take an action.

Example:

Let’s use the mic sensor to check the noise level, when it exceeds a certain level, turn on a LED!

  1. Get your Arduino board and place 1Sheeld on top of it (check 1Sheeld Adjustment Tutorial).
  2. Connect an LED to pin 13 on your board.
  3. Plug the Arduino board to your PC.
  4. Use Codebender.cc to compile and upload the sketch.
  5. Upload the sketch (make sure the switch on 1Sheeld is in the uploading mode).
  6. Switch 1Sheeld back to the communication mode.
  7. Open 1Sheeld app and connect to your 1Sheeld.
  8. Choose the Mic sensor shield.
  9. Now turn on the LED by making some noise!
