  • Ultra Bright LED (2x White)
    Excellent little LEDs
    Review by Scott
    These LEDs provide more than enough lighting for the project that I use them with. Need to make sure you don't look directly at them at full brightness or you'll be seeing spots.

  • RGB LED Breakout
    A good price for a great device
    Review by Ricardo Rodriguez
    LED RGB Breakout is great because I can program the Arduino IDE and CCS for MSP430. I recommend this device.

  • 1m LED RGB Addressable Strip - Sealed
    RoboFrog
    Review by Claude
    Great LED strip. Uses the WS2812 RGB controller chip to control each and every LED. Many levels of brightness possible for each LED. This strip is widely supported by various hardware libraries for the Arduino. Bright and easy to use. The only cautions are; don't try to use the the Arduino's 5 volt pins to power this strip, you must provide a separate 5 Vdc >1.8 A power to this strip (all LEDs on, full brightness) with the power and Arduino grounds tied together. Using mine as a 60 point round LED clock.
    Still ticking after 2.5 months.

  • 7-Segment Serial Display (Red)
    RoboFrog
    Review by Claude
    This LED 7 segment serial display makes it easy to control/program the 4 digit 7segment display without using all of your digital I/O pins. Each segment is addressable and controllable via a simple register bit/write. The display brightness can be controlled (globally via software) which is great for night use. Well constructed and compact.

  • 7-Segment Serial Display (Green)
    Nice little display but ...
    Review by RoboFrog
    My display has been running nonstop for over a month now, with no problems. This LED 7 segment serial display makes it easy to control/program the 4 digit 7segment display without using all of your digital I/O pins. Each segment is addressable and controllable via a simple register bit/write. The display brightness can be controlled (globally via software) which is great for night use. But be warned (as others have reviewed elsewhere) this green display is dim! Not for high brightness areas such as out side or sunny rooms. Works very well in dimly lit rooms or at night. Well constructed and compact.

Carlitos’ Projects: Speech-Controlled Arduino Robot

Posted on March 01, 2011

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Arduino Tutorials, Electronics, Robotics Projects & Kits.

We all dream of having appliances and machines that can obey our spoken commands. Well, let’s take the first step towards making this happen.  In this second iteration of Carlitos’ Projects, we are going to build a speech-controlled Arduino-based robot. You may be thinking that making such a robot must be a very complex task. After all, humans take many years before they [...]

... if you are using a analog to digital converter, the precision of the ADC will determine resolution. The output signal can vary depending on the lighting conditions and other variables, so some testing is also needed to calibrate the signal for your particular setup. Hope this helps,

You might try a little more light, It's hard to see what you're showing.

Yes, I know. I will see if moving my pole lamp over close to my table will get rid of the shadows.

I'm going to need better lighting, if I am going to do any web cam stuff while I am working.

... I'll probably dedicate a small Arduino type board to that, and connect it as a peripheral via I2C. The same board can also handle some indicator lighting and sound, which shouldn't be too much of a load. I am pretty sure I am going to use my Panda Board ES as main brain, with my BotBoarduino, ...

The wheel sensors should not affect the bumper sensors. The spot and clean were lighting green when touched but, were staying lit? If so, this does indicate an issue with the bumper sensors. But, it does appear bizarre that both your motherboards would have a bumper ...

If you don't plan to use a G15 servo (very specific), then you don't need the G15 shield. The relay shield would be used for lighting? One thing with Arduino and shields is that often times shields use the same pins; you need to check which pins are used by each shield and ensure they ...

You could use a USB relay board such as this one: RB-Dev-28

This is another alternative that requires you to drive the relays: RB-Elx-05
