Description

If you have already taken, or are in the process of taking my Arduino Step by Step Getting Started course, or if you already know the basics of the Arduino platform, then with a little practice you can create very interesting and fun projects on your own! 

We created this project course for anyone who wants to practice the design of simple gadgets based on the Arduino. 

These projects will give you the opportunity to apply your knowledge of individual components and simple programming to design and make fun gadgets.

By the end of this course, you will have dramatically improved your skills and confidence in designing small Arduino-based systems. You will be able to go on and create your own gadgets.

Learning how to design a simple system requires you to think not just about the individual components, but also about how they will work together, how the end-user will interact with your gadget, and how to iterate from prototype to the final version

In this course you will practice simple system design by creating 10 gadgets of increasing difficulty.

If you have an Arduino and a few basic components, like environment sensors, an LCD screen, buttons and LEDs, then you are ready to get started with this course!

I invite you to review the free lectures in the first section of the course to find out more details about it. 

If you are excited about making simple gadgets with the Arduino, join many other Makers and me in Arduino Step by Step Getting Started - Projects!

PLEASE consider the list of prerequisites of this course carefully. If you are not familiar with any of the prerequisites, please consider enrolling to Arduino Step by Step Getting Started first. That course will help you prepare for this project course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Current students of Arduino Step by Step Getting Started
  • Recent graduates of Arduino Step by Step Getting Started
  • Anyone with a beginners-level understanding of the Arduino who wishes to create their first projects

This is the first mini project in this project course, that we designed to help you make the most out of Arduino Step by Step Getting Started. In this project you are going to make an LED to blink and then you will add a potentiometer in order to control the blinking rate of the LED.
Project 1 – Controlled Blinking
3 questions

In this project you will make an LED array light up like a Cylon light. Use a potentiometer in order to control how fast the lit LED travels back and forth.
Project 2 - Cylon lights
3 questions

In this project you are going to make an Electronic dice. You will be able to replace a physical dice with this one and play your favourite chance game with it!
Project 3 - Electronic Dice
3 questions

In this project you will make an Environmental monitor. The monitor will be able to measure temperature in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit, humidity and brightness, and display it on an LCD screen.
Project 4 – Environment Monitor
3 questions

In this project you will make a Distance Counter. With the Distance Counter, you will be able to measure the distance in centimeters (cm) or inches (in), of the object that is in front of the ultrasonic distance sensor.
Project 5 – Distance Counter
3 questions

The Proximity Alarm will be able to measure the distance in centimeters (cm) of the object that is in front of the ultrasonic distance sensor and inform us about it. The buzzer will generate a unique sound depending on the distance it detects.
Project 6 – Proximity Alarm
3 questions

In this project you will make an a gadget that produces a noise when it detects movement. We call it “Intruder Alert”.
Project 7 – Intruder Alert
3 questions

This gadget will be able to display the current temperature, barometric pressure and altitude of your location. It will also have a forecasting mode.
Project 8 - Weather forecast
3 questions

In this project you will make a collision detector. When a collision is detected, an LED will turn on for 5 seconds, and the force magnitude in Gs will be shown in the LCD screen.
Project 9 - Collision detector
3 questions

In this project you are going to make a reaction game.
Project 10 – Reaction game

Hi, I am Vagelis. 

I have a degree in Information Technology from University of Piraeus with expertise at Artificial Intelligence. Some projects i did during my studies:

* Website for online hotel booking 

* Speech recognition application

* Image analysis

* Chess engine that implemented the MiniMax algorithm in order to beat the human player

* Bomberman-like game

As a life-long learner, my main goal is to learn and in the same time to teach others about technology topics, such as prototyping, programming and artificial intelligence.

My passion is Making and DIY with open source hardware like Arduino. I have a long time relationship with Arduino and some of my projects include:

* Arduino Light seeking and Obstacle avoiding robot

* Arduino Useless box

* Tap recording and playback machine

* Several projects with all kind of sensors that are available for Arduino projects

My latest achievement is the partnership with Peter Dalmaris and the introduction of me to the world of online instructors. With Peter we have published two courses:

* Make an Arduino robot

* Arduino step by step Getting started Projects
