1  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Help with: cordless drill and infra red sensor on: April 24, 2014, 06:17:31 am
Hello everyone!

(Excuse for possible bad English, I'm not a native speaker)

For a project I'm working on I want to make cordless drill that is switched on and off via a remote control and infra red sensor.
The problem is: I'm not very experienced with the arduino, so I would like some help.

I have coded the arduino so that I can switch the build in led on and off, but now I want to move on to the drill.
The drill has an 18V battery with it, which is connected to the motor through the push button mechanism.

The idea is to put a cable tie around the button so it will always stay on and then use the arduino as the switch. (Or maybe remove the switch out of the circuit at all?)

Now onto my quistion:
Since the battery is 18V and arduino only supports up to 5V, how do I put the arduino into the circuit? Would that require a resistor or even a transistor? If you could help me out, I would really appreciate that!

Thanks in advance!

Done that smiley

But does that mean you can connect those pins to your computer? If so, how do you do that? If not, how do you acces this reprogramming?

Op het engelstalige forum kreeg ik het volgende antwoord:

If you promise to translate my reply and post it with the same question you posted over in the Netherlands section?

It means you can reprogram the processor without removing it from the circuit, and without relying on the bootloader in the processor.

Dus bij deze: Het betekent dat je de processor kunt herprogrammeren zonder hem los te schakelen uit het circuit en zonder te hoeven vertrouwen op  de bootloader van de processor.

Al denk ik dat de meeste van jullie dit zelf ook gemakkelijk konden doen. smiley

Hello everyone!

I'm working on a report about the Arduino Uno R3. Before starting that I had never actually heard about Arduino and I don't really know anything about programming, still, I hope you guys can help me.

My actual question is: What is ICSP?

I know it's an abbreviation for In-Circuit Serial Programming, but this is more of an action, not the 6 pins you can see on the board twice. I'm wondering what those pins actually do and I hope you guys are willing to help me with this.

Hallo allemaal,

Ik ben met een profielwerkstuk bezig over de Arduino Uno R3. Eigenlijk had ik hiervoor nog nooit van Arduino gehoord en heb ik ook geen verstand van programmeren, maar ik hoop dat jullie mij kunnen helpen.

Mij vraag is: Wat is ICSP?

Ik weet dat het staat voor In-Circuit Serial Programming, maar dit is dus een bezigheid, niet de 6 pinnen die uit het board steken, die ook ICSP genoemd worden. Ik vraag me dus af wat dit tweetal van 6 pinnen nu precies doet.

Ik hoop snel iets van jullie te horen!
