iBreathe, A Breathalyzer Based on Hexiwear

Knowing the amount of alcohol you drunk is becoming easier using the iBreathe Breathalyzer project by Dave Clarke. You just have to blow in the alcohol sensor, then it pings the result to a smartphone app and to the cloud to document it as a table so you can see alcohol intake through time. This breathalyzer with a custom Beer mug casing will let you know where do you stand on the scale form “Sober as a jud ...

Capacitive Touch with Atmel’s AT42QT1070 Touch Sensor IC

Rather than using an out-of-the-box capacitive touch solution for my projects, I thought I’d attempt making my own little breakout board. The idea is to use a sensor capable of triggering normal digital input pins using touch. This post covers the selected touch sensor IC, the circuit used, getting a custom PCB made and how to use it in a project. At the end of this post, you’ll find a video covering the so ...

CT Sensor on AVR ATmega

A CT (Current Transformers) sensor is a device used to measure alternating current. A CT sensor, like other current transformers is made by a primary winding, a magnetic core and a secondary winding. The primary winding is often a single wire passing through the main core of the transformer. The seconday winding is used to sense the AC current passing through the primary winding wire. They are usually build ...

Cheap CO2 meter using the MQ135 sensor with AVR ATmega

MQ135 is an Air Quality Sensor suitable for detecting of NH3, Alcohol, Benzene and other gases. The description below, is what i derive from the poor datasheet of this sensor, it may be uncorrect, so if you have suggestions please leave me a feedback. The "sensitivity characteristics of the MQ-135" figure of the datasheet, you can see it below, it is used to convert the output of the sensor to the related p ...

Automatic Staircase Light

We all know that one of the places where power wastage happens most in homes and offices is at staircases. We usually turn on light at stairs and leave it in a hurry. In this project we are going to design a stair case lamp which works on battery and only turn on the lights only when someone is present at there. This circuit can be used to save power and it can be used as an emergency backup light. [caption ...
