Arduino Project #00001 - IR controlled LED`s - prototype for a moving robot car
This post is just a dump of the results of my first Arduino project. Here is the result.
Pinout connections (configurable on the source file, but this is the default) :
|D2||Anode of the right LED indicator||connect the cathode to GND|
|D3||Anode of the left LED indicator||connect the cathode to GND|
|D4||Anode of the forward LED indicator||connect the cathode to GND|
|D5||Anode of the backward LED indicator||connect the cathode to GND|
|D6||Anode of the stop LED indicator||connect the cathode to GND|
|D8||OUT of the IR receiver||connect VCC to +5v|
connect GND to GND
|5V||breadboard||connect to the +5v of the IR|
|GND||bradboard||connect the cathodes of the LED`s|
and the GND of the IR
Attention to the IR pinout. If for some reason you exchange and connect VCC to D8 in Arduino, the "signals" just don`t came. IR receiver is just like a regular LED, has it`s polarities. Bellow some of the most common modules.
This project works fine also passing the 3.3v to the breadboard, since the only thing that receives it is the IR anode, all the rest receives the + direct from the digital pins.

As you may know, I`m a programmer, I work most in web projects, but not only. This area is a mess! Each day you have to recycle what you know in many ways. The thing is, a knowledge that change so often can`t afford wait to be translated to Portuguese for instance, at that time, the known will be already deprecated. English to me is a functional requirement. I can`t imagine my daily life without it. I have been studding English for serious since 2009. In this section you can see what I`m working on. Have fun as I do.
