Using a Joystick with Arduino

The joystick is a position sensor which returns two analogue values representing its X,Y position. It can be used as an interface to navigate a menu or to control an object in direction or speed. It is commonly found on joysticks for video games, model making remote...
Using a Rotary Encoder with Arduino

Using a Rotary Encoder with Arduino

The rotary encoder is a rotation sensor whose direction and angle can be known. Similar in appearance to the potentiometer, the encoder has no limit stroke and instead of returning a resistance value, like the potentiometer, the encoder returns two digital signals...
Using the millis() function of the Arduino IDE

Using the millis() function of the Arduino IDE

A possible solution to the problems generated by using the delay() function is to use the millis() function. From the first use of the Arduino, the delay() function is used to manage instructions as a function of time. The major problem with the delay() function is...
Using the Arduino Motor Shield

Using the Arduino Motor Shield

The official Arduino Motor Shield is an expansion board for the Arduino UNO and Mega microcontrollers for DC and stepper motor control. We have seen how to drive a DC motor using an H-bridge which can require a lot of wiring when using the IC simply. For an embedded...
