RGB LED Using Accelerometer and ARM

Hey Folks,
In this tutorial, we will learn, how to change the colour of RGB LED using accelerometer of the ARM (FRDM-KL25Z).

INTRODUCTION
    • The FRDM-KL25Z is an ultra-low-cost development platform for Kinetis L Series KL1x (KL14/15) and KL2x (KL24/25) MCUs built on ARM® Cortex™-M0+ processor. 
    • The FRDM-KL25Z has been designed by NXP in collaboration with mbed for prototyping all sorts of devices, especially those requiring the size and price point offered by Cortex-M0+ and the power of USB Host and Device.
    • The FRDM-KL25Z is supported by a range of NXP and third-party development software.
    • It is packaged as a development board with connectors to break out to stripboard and breadboard and includes a built-in USB FLASH programmer.

             FEATURES
    • NXP KL25Z Kinetis KL2x MCU (MKL25Z128VLK4)
      • High-performance ARM® Cortex™-M0+ Core
      • 48MHz, 16KB RAM, 128KB FLASH
      • USB (Host/Device)
      • SPI (2)
      • I2C (2)
      • UART (3)
      • PWM (TPM)
      • ADC (16 bit)
      • DAC (1x 12bit)
      • Touch Sensor
      • GPIO (66)
               So now we are familiar with the FRDM-KL25Z let’s use it.

   Components Required:
    • FRDM-KL25Z board
    • Data Cable (USB Mini-B)
    • MMA8451Q - 3-axis accelerometer (On Board)

              
Code:

#include "mbed.h"
#include "MMA8451Q.h"

#if   defined (TARGET_KL25Z) || defined (TARGET_KL46Z)
  PinName const SDA = PTE25;
  PinName const SCL = PTE24;
#elif defined (TARGET_KL05Z)
  PinName const SDA = PTB4;
  PinName const SCL = PTB3;
#elif defined (TARGET_K20D50M)
  PinName const SDA = PTB1;
  PinName const SCL = PTB0;
#else
  #error TARGET NOT DEFINED
#endif

#define MMA8451_I2C_ADDRESS (0x1d<<1)

int main(void)
{
    MMA8451Q acc(SDA, SCL, MMA8451_I2C_ADDRESS);
    PwmOut rled(LED1);
    PwmOut gled(LED2);
    PwmOut bled(LED3);

    printf("MMA8451 ID: %d\n", acc.getWhoAmI());

    while (true) {
        float x, y, z;
        x = abs(acc.getAccX());
        y = abs(acc.getAccY());
        z = abs(acc.getAccZ());
        rled = 1.0f - x;
        gled = 1.0f - y;
        bled = 1.0f - z;
        wait (0.1f);
        printf("X: %1.2f, Y: %1.2f, Z: %1.2f\n", x, y, z);
    }
}

After dumping the code the output is shown in the video below:-

IoT - LPG Gas Sensor Logging with NodeMCU and Thingspeak.

In this tutorial, will learn, how to interface MQ-5 Module with Node Mcu(ESP8266).

The Grove - Gas Sensor(MQ5) module is useful for gas leakage detection (in home and industry). It is suitable for detecting H2, LPG, CH4, CO, Alcohol. Due to its high sensitivity and fast response time, measurements can be taken as soon as possible. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted by using the potentiometer.

IoT - Humidity and Temperature Logging using NodeMCU and ThingSpeak

Hey Folks,
In this tutorial, we will learn, how to interface DHT 11 with Node Mcu(ESP8266).
The DHT11 is a basic, ultra low-cost digital temperature and humidity sensor. It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air and spits out a digital signal on the data pin (no analog input pins needed).

Servo Motor Control using ESP8266 and Blynk App

Hey folks, 
In this tutorial we will learn how to interface Servo motor with NodeMcu(ESP8266)module and operate it with the Blynk app. Servos are controlled by sending an electrical pulse of variable width, or pulse width modulation (PWM), through the control wire. There is a minimum pulse, a maximum pulse, and a repetition rate. A servo motor can usually only turn 90° in either direction for a total of 180° movement.
   Follow the image below for circuit connection reference. In this circuit, we have connected the output pin to the D0 pin of the NodeMcu module. If want to control the servo motor manually then connect a 10K potetiometer . The 10K potentiometer will work as a voltage divisor, changing the analog input level on  NodeMCU (A0) from 0 to 3.3V. Internally, the 10 bits ADC (Analog-Digital converter) will generate a digital value (from 0 to 1023), the PotReading, equivalent to the analog voltage input.
After making the circuit dump the code given below.
