Latest Arduino Based Project Ideas for Students in 2015

Arduino is a device which is used to build electronic projects. It consists of a pre-programmed microcontroller or integrated development environment, used to write the code and upload to the physical board. These devices are used to make communicating objects, taking i/p from different kinds of sensors and controlling the motors, lights and various physical o/p’s. The Arduino doesn’t require a separate programmer in order to dump the new code on the board but, we can directly use a USB cable. Also, the IDE of the Arduino uses a simplified version of C++, making it simple to learn program. Finally, the Arduino board gives a typical form factor that breaks out the functions of the micro-controller into a more reachable package. The applications of Arduino based project are mainly involved in Arduino projects, that can interact with software running on your PC.

What is an Arduino Board?

Arduino Board
Arduino Board

Basically, an Arduino board uses the Harvard architecture because program code and data have separate memory. The code of the board is stored in the program, whereas the data is stored in data memory. There are various types of Arduino boards, namely, Arduino Uno (R3), LilyPad Arduino, Redboard, Arduino Mega (R3) and Arduino Leonardo, these are used for various purposes. But most of the Arduino devices have common components like Power (USB / Barrel Jack), Pins (5V, 3.3V, GND, Analog, Digital, PWM, AREF), Reset Button, Power LED Indicator, TX RX LEDs, Main IC, and Voltage Regulator. The advantages of Arduino are; Simple, Inexpensive, clear programming environment and extensible hardware.

The lifetime of LEDs is more compared with HID lamps because LEDs consume less power. The Arduino board comprises programmable commands that control the light intensity based on PWM signals produced. The light intensity is kept high during night time when the traffic on the roads decreases slowly and the light intensity also decreases increasingly until morning. At Last the light intensity shuts down completely in the morning at 6 A.M and again restarts at 6 P.M. in the evening and this process is frequent.

Arduino based project on Home Automation

The main concept of this project is to design a home automation system using an Arduino board with any Android operating system based smartphone or tablet.

The electrical loads are connected to the control unit through the relay contacts. This project can be used in the current domestic area for either controlling the loads through the TV remote.

Arduino based Solar Street Light

The main concept of this project is to design a solar street light using an Arduino board to control the street light intensity. In this project, PV panels are used to charge the batteries by altering the sunlight into electricity, and the charging of this battery can be controlled by using a charge controller circuit. Street light intensity is kept high in peak hours. When the vehicles on the roads decrease slowly in the midnights, then the light intensity can be decreased gradually till morning to conserve energy. Therefore, the street lights turn ON at the sunset and then switch OFF at the sunrise routinely.
