Geo Data Logger: Arduino+GPS+SD+Accelerometer to log, time-stamp, and geo-tag sensor data
UPDATES Oct 17, 2013: I have published a guide on using your Android phone to accomplish a similar task by leveraging your Android device's built in GPS and sensors. Feb 6, 2013: Featured on GeoAwesomeness Nov 24, 2012: Featured on Hackaday Nov 21, 2012: Featured by John Boxall @ Freetronics Nov 20, 2012: Featured on Dangerous Prototypes INTRODUCTION I thought it would be educational to build a prototype that I can take on the road to log, geo-tag, and time-stamp sensor data to be analyzed later with mapping and/or data analysis applications. So I figured why not start with a gadget that can log road conditions. This prototype, the Bump-O-Meter, measures road conditions by using an Arduino, a GPS receiver, an SD card, and an accelerometer sensor. This prototype is a generic sensor logging/geo-tagging gadget which means the accelerometer can be replaced with any other sensor(s) to log and map anything anywhere. This guide is divided into the following sections:

AmbientMonitor In different blog posts, I’ve already explained how to receive data from Arduino using a .Net application or a server-side script. Today I’m going to show you how it’s possible, using JavaScript, to receive and show data using only a Web browser. Logical architecture The project has two main elements: Arduino, connected to an AM2302 sensor to get temperature and humidity valuesan HTML page, with some external resources (JavaScript and CSS files) opened in a browser

Flashing Cloud Step 1. Prepare an projector, a laptop PC and a plastic bag. Step 2. How to write computer games: tips from Gamecamp 4 May 2011 What happens when you get a couple of hundred gamers and game creators in a room and ask them to dream up their own conference? Last weekend the fourth GameCamp took place in London, a so-called unconference event where attendees were encouraged to set their own agenda on the day. Anyone could propose a talk by writing it on the whiteboard. Arduino Astronomical Clock for Automatic Light Control Arduino Astronomical Clock for Automatic Light Control There are many ways to automatically control these lights. The gadget I was using (until I completed this project, that is) was a simple mechanical timer.

Creating A 3D Print from start to file using Zbrush for Beginners You will need: A computer Zbrush 4R4 or equivalent Z plugin 3D Printer Exporter (free from Pixologic’s web page) Time taken: 2-3 hours Ok, this is my first instructable and I hope that you find it helpful. Making a 3D Game with OpenGL: Deferred shading and stuff  Lately OpenGL and C++ is pretty much the only thing I do for clients, mostly for installations and iPad apps. And that’s gowning pretty well. But as a creative code guy, I pretty much stayed in our own tech subculture.

Turbosail Technical design[edit] Concept[edit] In 1980, Jacques Cousteau dreamed of creating a ship with a modern engine that would be powered, at least in part, by the wind, a clean, free, renewable energy source. Tempduino: Arduino Based Temp and Humidity Display March 19, 2013 AT 2:00 am Build your own stand-alone temperature and humidity display with this guide on Instructables. The temperature in my office at work varies quite a bit depending on the time of day, season, and the whims of the other people I share the floor with. When I’m sitting at my desk shaking uncontrollably or sweating profusely it would be nice to know if it’s due to the temperature or just work related stress.

AbnormalActivity Histogram of optical flows (HOFs) are used at each local region in the video frame. Figure 2. Histogram of optical flows - Learning of motion patter Mixture of probabilistic principal component analyzers (MPPCA) are adopted to encode HOF patterns at each local region.

Getting Online with Arduino: Round Up of Devices If you’re manipulating the physical environment through software, or the other way around, then you need a way to get your hardware online. Arduino (and its community and ecosystem of sensors and shields) makes it easy to experiment on the physical side of things, but it wasn’t designed with any networking interface built in. That’s why many in the community right now are building devices and add-ins that make it easy to get an Arduino (or Arduino-compatible board) connected easily.
