Hi guys, I am new here. Let me introduce myself: My name is Vloda, I am from Germany (Sorry for my bad english). I am 21 and... oh, you probably want to know more about my project. But first a little introduction.
A few weeks ago I bought my Arduino Uno (R3) with a breadboard and a few sensors, a LCD, a servo, etc (starter set) but did not have enough time to get into it. Then, a few days ago, I did all the tutorials, that were possible with my sensors and actors provided by the Arduino Website. After that I changed them a bit and wrote little programs like the following: If you press a button, a piezo makes S.O.S. sound, etc.
After that, I had an idea for my first "real" project but unfortunately I am new in the field of electronics and have no idea what to start with: I want some sort of sensor (more than one maybe?) that can either tell me where a chip attached to i.e. my pet, my wrist, a R/C car, etc is. Or that can set of an alarm (LED, piezo, etc) when the chip gets too close to the ground.
So basically it is like a mini-triangulating-radar-thingi.
Any ideas on how to accomplish that?
Thanks in advance. Kind regards Vloda
