Arduino and Raspberry Pi Project Ideas

Electronics Electronics Project Ideas Micro-computer Micro-controller Robotics

I’ve decided to keep a list of sites and articles that provide instructions for building Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects. Below you will find a list of the sites I visit when searching for ideas and answers.

As I find new resources I will update this article. If you have a resource you’d like added please leave a comment below.

Simple Arduino Projects

Arduino PIR Sensor Tutorial | PIR Motion Sensor with ArduinoIn this project, we will learn about PIR Sensor and how can it be used as a Motion Sensor through the Arduino PIR Sensor Tutorial. By going through this project, you can understand how PIR Sensor works and how to hook up a PIR Sensor to Arduino.
Real Time Clock and ArduinoThere are many applications where a real time clock (RTC) is of use for display, data logging with date/time stamp, etc. When you find yourself needing a RTC for your project, this article will help guide you to completion.
There are many, probably thousands, of articles on RTC’s and how to interface them with an Arduino. My goal is to bring the best of that information into a single place for you to use as a reference.
DIY RGB LED MatrixIn this project, we will see how to make an RGB LED Matrix using simple components. LED Matrix is one of the popular Arduino projects among several DIY and hobby projects. An RGB LED Matrix is one such project which many students and hobbyists put it on their to-do list of Arduino Projects.
Arduino 7 Segment Display InterfaceIn this project, we will learn about 7 Segment Displays and see how the Arduino 7 Segment Display Interface works. 7 Segment Display or Seven Segment Display is one of the simplest display devices that can be connected to Arduino or any microcontroller.
Arduino 8×8 LED MatrixIn this project, we will learn about LED Matrix Displays and two different projects on Arduino 8×8 LED Matrix Interface. The first project will be a simple interface between Arduino and 8X8 LED Matrix to display information (even scrolling information and images can be displayed) and the second project will be an advanced project where the 8×8 LED Matrix is controlled through an Android device.
Arduino DC Motor Control using L298N Motor DriverIn this project, we will see how to control a DC Motor using Arduino and L298N Motor Driver. There are different ways to control a DC Motor but the Arduino DC Motor Control using L298N Motor Driver is becoming quite popular for many reasons.

New to Arduino?

If you are new to Arduino development and are interested in a complete starter kit, I recommend the DRDUINO Arduino UNO Starter Kit. I use mine often to test new ideas and prototype solutions. Take a look at my review of DRDUINO and get yours today!
