Arduino and Raspberry Pi Projects for this Summer Vacation

Hey guys, Welcome back to RootSaid. It’s summer again. Summer vacations are probably the best time to learn something new. Learning new? Well, that depends on the interest.

This post is for people who are getting started with Arduino and Raspberry Pi Robotics and Other Electronics Projects. The List of Best Arduino and Raspberry Pi Projects for this Summer Vacation.

Arduino and Raspberry Pi Projects for this Summer Vacation

But there are some questions that we will ask ourselves when we are getting ready to learn something ‘new’. From where should I start learning Ardiuno? How should I start learning Arduino? Which is the best place to start learning Arduino? Which direction should I go?

To answer that question, we will divide you guys into 3 levels

  • Beginners – People who have no/very limited ideas about electronics
  • Intermediates – People with a basic understanding of electronics and robotics
  • Advanced – People with a deeper understanding of electronics including microcontrollers and microprocessors and their working.

Getting Started with Robotics?

Want to learn Robotics from Scratch? Here is an awesome guide for you to get started with robotics (Free Video Tutorials Included).


Beginner Level

Beginners Guide On Robotics

This post is for people especially beginners and kids who are getting started with robotics; nice and easy robotics for beginners post.

In this robotics tutorial, we will guide you through the basic of ‘Robotics for Beginners’ and you will learn how to how to Make a Robot for Kids easily. Something you can do for this summer vacation

Arduino and IR Sensor

If you are a beginner and new to Electronics and Robotics, you might have heard the name of this sensor multiple times – The IR Sensor. But you might not know what it is. This is one of the most widely used sensors in hobby projects like a burglar alarm and line follower robots.

In this post, I will explain everything you need to know about IR Sensor – What is an IR Sensor, How an IR Sensor works and How to connect IR Sensor with Arduino?

Arduino and Temperature Sensor

This is an Arduino beginners project for people who are getting started with Arduino. In this project, we will use an LM35 temperature sensor to sense the temperature of an object.

Before getting started, let us understand what we are dealing with. Let us take a closer look at the LM35 Temperature sensor.

Arduino and UltraSonic Sensor

In this project, we will use an Arduino Uno and an ultrasonic sensor to measure the distance and display that measured value on an LCD screen using Arduino.

Here you will get complete tutorial, codes, and instructions to make one yourself.

Simple Line Follower Robot

Line Follower… Well… What else is new?? IR Sensors, motors, chassis, arduino/pic or any other microcontroller, simple pieces of codes.. They are all common right?

How about building a cheap, basic and simple line follower without using arduino or pic? A line follower without microcontroller at all. No Coding ;).

Introduction to Raspberry Pi

Here in this article, I will tell you what a raspberry pi is, what it can do and how to set it up in an easily understandable way.

I have included maximum details as I could so that beginners can follow up very easily.


Intermediate Level

Spinel Crux – Gesture Controlled Wireless Surveillance Robot

Yes, of course, building and tinkering with a DIY robot is fun. In this series, we will build a Raspberry Pi Rover Robot which can travel through rough terrain and control using hand gestures.

To drive this Gesture Controlled Robot we will be using a control glove which acts as a gesture sensor. The gesture sensor will have an accelerometer and a flex sensor to control the status and the direction it should move. The flex sensor activates the Spinel Crux and the tilt of the accelerator determines the direction it should move. And yes, there is a robot building kit available for you to build one yourself.

Pick and Place Robot with Robotic Arm

After the grand success of the Spinel Crux in the Arduino Robotics workshop, we started working on an add on, which can be placed on top the Spinel Crux – A Robotic Arm, controlled using Hand Gestures/Joystick.

A pick and place robot using Arduino and a cool robotic arm, with 4 DOF(Degrees of Freedom).

Badland Brawler – The Remote Controlled Off Road Robot

The path to an Off Road Robot – Our last two projects – The Spinel Crux V1 and The Spinel Crux L2 have been Revolutionary success with in and outside our community. We built a gesture controlled robot and we made an addon –  a robotic arm and fixed on top of it. Our project secured first position in various competitions, and found its way on front pages of various magazines.

This time, we decided to make our hands dirty. We build an Off Road 4 Wheel Drive Robot, which can travel through rough terrain and  can be remotely controlled using a mobile phone or a laptop.

Controlling Multiple Servo Motors using PCA9685 Servo Motor Driver 16 Chanel Module

The PCA9685 is a 16 Channel 12 Bit PWM I2C-bus controlled Servo motor Driver.

The Driver can very easily connected to your arduino, Raspberry Pie and easily programmed to control single or multiple servo motors and make your own RC plane, car, ship, quadrapod, hexapod or anything you want.

Arduino WiFi Robot using Mobile Phone

Few weeks back, I published an tutorial on building a robot that can be controlled using WiFi and an App RootSaid – WiFi Command Center using Raspberry Pi.

I got so many questions about making the same thing using Arduino. So in this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make a WiFi Robot that can be controlled via Mobile phone using Arduino. Yes; an Arduino WiFi Robot.

Long Range Remote Controller for RC Robot

In this post, I will be showing you how to make a long range remote controller for your robot. Yes, a Cheap DIY Remote Controller for your Robot using HC12 module.

Here I will be giving you complete details including the circuit diagram the PCB layout and video tutorial and complete details to build your own remote controller for your robot.


Advanced Level
Arduino and Raspberry Pi Projects For this Summer Vacation

Arduino Brushless Motor Wireless Control

Planning to build an Arduino Controlled RC plane, RC helicopter or RC boat? Wanna drive a brushless motor Wireless using Arduino? Then you are on the right place? This tutorial will show you how to set up and configure an ESC, connect it to a brushless motor with wireless control using Arduino and an HC12 module using a joystick and run the brushless motor wireless at different speeds.

We will go through the components used and their explanations, hardware setup, and the coding. We will explain everything step by step with block diagram so that everyone can follow and build their own setup.

RC Plane Transmitter Receiver Arduino

Flying an RC plane is awesome and building one is fun. Let us build a long range 4 channel RC Plane Transmitter Receiver using Arduino. This not only works for RC plane, you can use it on any robots including rovers, tanks, RC boats or other stationary robots.

Yes, you heard that right. A cheap DIY RC Plane Transmitter Receiver using Arduino with a range of 1.8 KM using Arduino Nano, joystick and HC12. Not just for plane, with a little bit of tweak in the code, you can control RC car, Boats, helicopters, quadcopters etc.

Mind Controlled Robot using Arduino and MindFlex

It is very clear that EEG sensors and headsets are becoming more commercialized and thus accessible to users for building custom brain-machine interfaces with various functionalities from switching TV channels to controlling wheelchairs as in this case.

We decided to take it one step further. Here we will show you how we created a Mind Controlled Robot using Arduino which was later converted to a wheelchair.


Choosing the Right Microcontroller for Your Summer Vacation Project

There are so many different types of processor/controlling boards that you can use for your projects. From that bucket, two of the most commonly used controller boards are Arduino and the Raspberry Pi. So which microcontroller is best for your project? Arduino or Raspberry Pi?

For Beginners who are getting started with Electronics Hobby circuits and Robotics, both these boards LOOK similar. In this post, we’re going to take a deeper look at the differences between Arduino and Raspberry Pi and how to choose one for your project. This will help you build your Summer Vacation Project without any hassle.
