GPS (UBLOX NEO-6M) Tracking System with GSM (SIM800C) data connectivity and Google Maps Integration

Overview Here's an interesting scenario. You bought something across the internet. In the midst of the waiting, you ponder "How do they track the packages?" Usually, an online shipping company has a fleet of magicians that delivers your parcel/package. Along the way, they fight different monsters across dimensions trying to steal your package. (This is the reason the package takes

Remote Smart Water Meter using LoRa and Cayenne via ENC28J60 Ethernet Module

Overview Imagine being an employee of  WaterCo™’s (a water utility service company) meterer. Every day seems repetitive: meter this, meter that, and meter those. On your afternoon break, you browse through your social media feed to pass time. Along the feed, you come across one of CreateLabz’s mini-project: A Smart Water Meter. It’s no easy feat to meter hundreds of

(1/2) 4-Wheel Drive Multifunction (Wireless) Robot Car Kit

Overview This is the first part of the 2-part project for 4-wheel drive multifunction (wireless) robot car kit. The first part covers the functionality of a robot car with its own obstacle avoidance capability using both ultrasonic sensors and infrared obstacle avoidance modules. The robot car is completely autonomous to the robot car kit owner. The robot car uses the

Arduino Starter’s Guide (6/7): Piezo Buzzer

To this point we have controlled light, motion, and electrons. Let's tackle sound next. But sound is an analog phenomena, how will our digital Arduino cope? We will once again rely on its incredible speed which will let it mimic analog behavior. To do this, we will attach a piezo element to one of the Arduino's digital pins. Piezo buzzers

Arduino Starter’s Guide (4/7): Light Dependent Resistor and LED

Light Whilst getting input from a potentiometer can be useful for human controlled experiments, what do we use when we want an environmentally controlled experiment? We use exactly the same principles but instead of a potentiometer (twist based resistance) we use a photo resistor (light based resistance). The Arduino cannot directly sense resistance (it senses voltage) so we set up
