Keep an eye on your batteries charged level with this Arduino-based battery level monitor, this course will teach you how to build an Arduino-based voltage indicator.
And the indicator shows the status of the battery by lighting LEDs on a LED bar graph, depending on the battery voltage reading.
But if you don't have a LED bar graph available around, you can always use normal LEDs like what we would use in this course.
We will also show you how to display the reading on an LCD display that is 16*2, and we will explain everything about it in this course.
Now let's talk about why.
Why would you want to know your battery level?
Have you experienced building a battery-operated project? Then suddenly it won't work because it needs to be charged.
We all know that batteries come with a certain voltage limit exceeding or completely losing the battery voltage can lead to a lot of frustration.
It also can lead to component damage or data loss, so wouldn't it be nice to be able to monitor the battery's level so you can decide whether it needs to be charged or replaced?
That's what this course is about and that what this course will do for you.
Now let's talk about details, what you learn in this course.
Why you should monitor your battery level.
Hardware and software requirements that you need to make this happen.
What is ADC, how to use it, how to interface it with your microcontroller?
LCD display working principle and the science behind it and some coding tips
Analog to digital converter module and how to deal with it using Arduino.
How does Arduino measure the battery level in detail
Draw our circuit schematic.
Simulation for the circuit before connecting it in real life.
We will also write the code line by line so that you know exactly what's happening inside Arduino.
The final step will be measuring high voltage levels, using Arduino and some tips and tricks for this device.
I'm very sure that you will learn a lot by the end of this course, you will learn how to make a better level monitor.
You learn how to deal with analog signals. You will learn how to interface, also to display with Arduino.
That is not everything! When you join this course
You will Also Get in-depth knowledge on Arduino Power requirements and Power Consumption with advanced Tips and Tricks to Power Arduino
As most of you know, Arduino UNO, Mini, and most of the Arduino boards are not powered efficiently in situations when you have to run them on batteries.
In such situations, every milliamp of current counts, Arduino only draws a minimum of 15 milliamps of current, which doesn't sound like much, but in certain situations, it quickly adds up.
Arduino is a development board built with several different circuits, including a USB converter, regulators, indicators, short circuit protection, a damage control circuit, and a lot of other circuits. All of these internal components use more power than the minimum necessary.
In this course, we will look at different ways we can use to reduce the power consumption of an Arduino by changing some hardware or using special codes, you will learn how to increase your project's efficiency by reducing the amount of power consumption through these tips and tricks that we are going to provide in this course.
We will look at ways to reduce power consumption within the Arduino by changing hardware or modifying code.
However, there are also ways to reduce the power consumption of an Arduino by adding some simple external circuitry.
In this course, we will design some external circuits, some simple and intermediate, and even complex circuits to control the power flow of our Arduino to help externally regulate the power flow.
The circuits that we will present in this course are to be used and work best when you want to multiply your battery life in any Microcontroller project, not just Arduino.
I'm sure that after this course, you will know a lot about Arduino and about its internal structure, and how you can reduce power consumption.
So what you will learn in this course:
Low power Arduino libraries
Deep sleep mode.
Slowing down Arduino clock speed.
Replace or neglect power-consuming components in your Arduino board
Lower the voltage supply on your Arduino.
Make your Arduino board that consumes away much less power than the one that you will buy.
Reduce Arduino power consumption using external timers.
More Tips and Tricks to reduce power consumption and you can choose from them.
Reduce power using an external timer circuit and how this timer can reduce power consumption.
Solar-powered battery charger circuit for your Arduino board
Sensor-based power-friendly external circuit.
I'm sure that you will enjoy this course content. It has a lot of useful information.
In the end, you will gain information not only about reducing Arduino power consumption but also about the Arduino board structure.
You will learn as you practice with real-world examples in this course
