DIY Radio Control Electronic Projects

This project, called "Simple-Timer" is a programmable Timer and electronic switch with an integrated LiPo Battery Monitor that is based around a PIC microcontroller.


The "Simple-Timer" includes a fairly accurate timer that is programmable (via pushbutton) by the user and can be programmed to time a 5, 10, 15, 20,25 or 30 minute event. When the timer/switch is enabled (tap small pushbutton), the onboard LED indicates the output is active by lighting solid (the circuit also outputs the same voltage as your supply/battery voltage using a PN2222 NPN transistor or a high current MOSFET).

Infrared Control Freak 360 - ROBOTmaker

It's a 360 degree multifunctional programmable sensor that has a bundle of cool features for sensing for your Maker, Robot and Kinetic art type projects.

Infrared Control Freak 360 -  ROBOTmaker

The sensors is also packed with two ambient light sensors (for light tracking experiments or line following) and IR remote control functionality so it can can read and transmit Sony SIRC IR control signals.

Infrared Control Freak 360 -  ROBOTmaker

The sensor is designed to fit onto micro sized robots (50mm x 50mm) where 360 degrees of proximity sensing, ambient light sensing and basic inter-robot communication is required, such as robot swarms, robot research, robot gaming and robot sumo competitions.
