Hi all! I'm super excited, my first post! I have successfully completed almost all of the the starter projects from Arduino starter kit an I am ready to move on to something that is actually useful! 8)
Arduino automobile hacks: Here are the 5 things I want to accomplish: Automatic lights - turn on when its dark, turn off when its light Parts list: 1. relay 2. Photocell 3. Manual 3 way switch - off, on, auto 4. 10k ohm resistor
Outside/Inside temperature display 1. X2 waterproof digital temperature sensor 2. cm1602c lcd module 3. 10k ohm resistor 4. 220 ohm resistor
Knock to Unlock - unlocks doors when secret knock on driver side window 1. Piezo electric speaker 2. relay
Unlock doors by proximity 1. 3 Meter read distance - RFID/Transponder/NFC/Bluetooth reader (TBD) - similar to automated turnpike tolls 2. Active fob 3. Relay
Compass 1. cm1602c lcd module 2. Compass sensor
Do to my limited experience I am seeking for a bit of help and some fresh eyes to look over my project to spot any potential gaps in my logic and parts list before I order everything. I already have the common hobbyist (I build RC Model Airplanes) items, solder, wire, connectors, heat shrink, batteries.
