As it is getting cold again and my chickens made it through the summer just fine, it is time to revisit and revitalize my automatic chicken door.
The older model was a large door that slid on a track that would get leaves, snow, and ice messing the whole thing up. Also the mecanisim that [...]
In this video I show how to connect a servo to an Arduino and also how to load the sample servo programs included with the Arduino software. The sweep program will drive the arm of the servo back and forth while the Knob program will move the arm of the servo when you turn a [...]
The absolute beginners guide to programming an Arduino Duemilanove for the first time. I will take you through downloading the Arduino programming software, configuring the software, writing your first program, sending it to the Arduino, and testing operation.
I used a ST7565 GLCD (Graphic Liquid Cristal Display) screen to display the live analog readings from an Arduino.
Here is the Arduino library: ST7565_GLCD_LIbrary.zip
The ST 7565 I picked up on Adafruit for about 16 bucks. I couldn’t find any examples to help [...]
There are many advantages of having an automatic chicken coop door. The door will automatically close at night when the chickens are inside and open in the morning. Not only will they stay warm and cozy, critters like coons and skunks will have a much harder time getting to them. The ultimate luxury to me [...]
Here is my second ESC or Electronic Speed Control that I built with an Arduino Duemilanove. You can’t just hook DC up to Brushless DC Motors that you have scavenged out of old CDROM drives, hard drives, or printers and expect them to spin. Brushless DC motors require you to use a motor controller to [...]
Here is my first ESC or Electronic Speed Control that I built with an Arduino Duemilanove. If you don’t already know, the best motors you can scavenge out ov CDROM drives or old hard drives are Brushless DC motors that you can’t just hook DC up to and make [...]
I searched for days trying to find a commercial sound localization sensor or info on how to build one. Sound localization is what the human ear does when it determines that a sound is coming from the left or right. After talking to some gentlemen over at the Arduino forums I realized that [...]
