I had recently talked about how you can control servo motors using an Arduino and Simulink. I stumbled upon an interesting application which builds on the same topic. The video shows how you can use an IR sensor coupled with a stepper motor to get a rotational range scanner (I would have ideally called it a Mini Radar, but for the fact that the sensor uses infrared waves instead of radio waves). The stepper motor is controlled using an Arduino UNO and an Arduino MotorShield. The Arduino is conne ...

Need More Power?

Posted by Sarribas element14 Team Aug 4, 2014
The Arduino platform is accessible, inexpensive and an excellent gateway into the world of micro-controllers.   The Problem:   The element14 community is a hotbed of innovation and it's in the very nature of engineers to constantly progress, forging ever more elaborate projects and pushing their equipment to the limit. While the Arduino is an excellent piece of kit for hobbyists and beginning engineers, you may find your latest project requires more power than it can provide.   ...
