Robotic Xylophone With the holiday season approaching, we are always looking for a way to add a little Christmas spirit to our office. This year, we thought it would be awesome to have a musical instrument that we could control with a NerdKits microcontroller kit, and have it play holiday music. Keeping true with the NerdKits spirit, we decided to build a xylophone, build the whole thing from scratch, and teach about solenoids and shift registers along the way! Our homemade xylophone was a great way to put our milling machine to use cutting the bars for each note, and using the lathe for the solenoid forms and steel slugs. We made our xylophone from aluminum bars -- all 6061 aluminum alloy rectangular bars, with a 1.5" x 0.375" cross-section. We used a 1.5" long nylon spacer, plus three #6-32 nuts, plus one rubber washer to set the height of the bar above the acrylic. As described in the video above, we were able to adjust the length of the bars to get the note frequencies we wanted.

Labs / MIDI Output using an Arduino Overview This page covers only the details of MIDI communication on the Arduino module. For a more general introduction to MIDI on a microprocessor, see the MIDI notes on Tom's physical computing site. MIDI, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is a useful protocol for controlling synthesizers, sequencers, and other musical devices. MIDI devices are generally grouped in to two broad classes: controllers (i.e. devices that generate MIDI signals based on human actions) and synthesizers (including samplers, sequencers, and so forth).

Arduino NetServer To achieve Internet Controlled Electronics , in the other words , the main functions of Arduino NetServer are : Web Server handles the communication between your PC and Internet User. Serial Port will be the interface between your Arduino (electronics) Project and PC. This is how you control / monitor electronics from internet. With this simple homemade Web Server function , the user does not need to install any other heavy software for Web Server. The tutorial of how to make your own Web Server can be found here. There's a simple job need to be done or monitored in a remote place which you can not or do not wanna go there once a while. So make them online , then monitor and control them from the Internet! This is another example. The General Idea demonstrates here is : [ Acknowledgement ] Special thanks to Cara did the the remote control test for me from the other side of internet.

InterfacingWithSoftware You have come to the place to learn about connecting an Arduino to other devices, whatever software is running on those other devices. The Arduino can "talk", (transmit or receive data data) via a serial channel, so any other device with serial capabilities can communicate with an Arduino. It doesn't matter what program/programming language is driving the other device. You can either use the Arduino's "main" serial port, the one it uses when you "talk" to it to program it, or you can leave that channel dedicated to programming (and the development environment's serial monitor), and use two other pins for an extra serial link dedicated to the external device. Some programs (like Flash) don't have native serial capabilities. CmdMessenger messaging library A Messaging library for both Arduino and C# .NET / Mono. Commands that can be sent or received. Instrumentino is an open-source modular graphical user interface framework for controlling Arduino based experimental instruments. For Mac

Today they can be found in almost any complex electronic device - from portable music devices to washing machines to your car. They are programmable, cheap, small, can handle abuse, require almost zero power, and there are so many variaties to suit every need. This is what makes them so useful for robotics - they are like tiny affordable computers that you can put right onto your robot. Augmented Microcontrollers and Development Boards In a pure sense, a microcontroller is just an IC (integrated circuit, or a black chip thing with pins coming out of it). As a beginner it is probably best to buy an augmented microcontroller. In the long term however you should build your own augmented microcontroller so that you may understand them better. Between getting a full augmented board and doing it yourself is something called a development board. What comes with the IC? So what is analog? What does this bit stuff mean for ADC?
Playground - SolenoidTutorial You can not drive a solenoid directly from your Arduino. It requires more current than you can provide and produces destructive voltages when it is switched off. There is a simple solution. Solenoids take a lot of power The solenoid I was testing with is a 12 volt solenoid the size of my thumb. It passes 1 amp of current when turned on and becomes uncomfortably warm to hold if left on. Solenoids are Inductors A solenoid is a coil of wire with a magnetic core. Don't panic at the schematic Most of the schematic is test point labels and my extra protection circuitry for testing the bad configurations. The bypass diode The schematic shows a bypass diode, D1. The other protective device The IRF640 shown in this circuit operates as if it has a zener diode in parallel. It still generates a large voltage that I would have to be careful to isolate. Still, it's nice to know it's there and I did operate the circuit with only this mechanism while collecting some of the data shown here. The test fixture
