Reducing Arduino Power Consumption – Hackster.io

https://www.hackster.io/chauhannaman98/reducing-arduino-power-consumption-f8d49d?ref=explore&ref_id=trending___&offset=0 The ATmega328P, used on popular boards like the SparkFun RedBoard, Arduino Uno, and Pro Mini are actually quite power hungry for small battery powered devices (15 mA for UNO). It is possible to drastically bring power consumption down with just a few tricks. In this guide we’ll see if we can reduce the supply

Voice Controlled Bluetooth Car: 5 Steps

http://www.instructables.com/id/Voice-Controlled-Bluetooth-Car/ This looks really interesting! Everyone has used the remote controlled car…. but what about a voice controlled car??? Ever used it?If not then you will build it now. Just you need an arduino as the brains and a smartphone.  Arduino nano is the brains of the project. Now the voice feature actually works with

The State of Boards: Small, Simple Hardware Rules | Make

http://makezine.com/2017/06/27/state-boards-platforms-products-purposes-current-crop-microcontrollers-vies-attention/ Over the last few years, we’ve seen a huge growth in the number and variety of both microcontroller boards and single-board computers.  The modern era, defined by microcontrollers becoming conveniently packaged on boards, began with the Arduino. The “classic” Arduino layout, including the irritating, irregular offset between pins 7 and 8, has become a standard. Similarly,

Arduino developers get extra support as Codeanywhere acquires Codebender

SiFive announced the Arduino Cinque, the new RISC-V based development board | Open Electronics

https://www.open-electronics.org/sifive-announced-the-arduino-cinque-the-new-risc-v-based-development-board/ The Arduino Cinque is the second RISC-V based development board put out by SiFive (the first being the HiFive1) compatible with the Arduino platform. “By partnering with a pioneer in open-source hardware, SiFive can further advance the progress of open custom silicon” Board has SiFive’s Freedom E310 customizable SoC, which runs off the E31 CPU

SiFive Unveils the First RISC-V-Based Arduino

https://blog.hackster.io/sifive-unveils-the-first-risc-v-based-arduino-a4d07fe7f21f  “Arduino Cinque” is based on SiFive’s Freedom E310 — the industry’s first commercially available RISC-V core — running at 320MHz. Aside from the SoC, an onboard ESP32 chip provides support for 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

HB100 microwave radar to Arduino

A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that uses the Doppler effect to produce velocity data about objects at a distance. It does this by bouncing a microwave signal off a desired target and analyzing how the object’s motion has altered the frequency of the returned signal. Doppler radar technology used to be expensive, but
