Hello Friends! Today I am back to share my knowledge on one of the Latest and Trending Technology that is Arduino 1Sheeld. Today in this Article we will learn about a new Arduino kit that is “1Sheeld”. The 1sheeld This is the Advanced version of Arduino Development Board having multiples of advanced features Through which we can connect our Android or Ios Phone. The working of 1sheeld is very fast cause, In the 1sheeld we gives input to our Development board through our mobile that is connected with our 1sheeld. Hence 1Sheeld allows to the Arduino Board to Perform tasks according to the users.
This has launched very newly but After launching of 1 sheeld in the market Doing Program has became more easier. This is like plug and Play. This is a very good Platform for Beginners to develop any kinds of Projects. So friends, keep continue your reading and Let’s know more about it..
What is Arduino 1Sheeld ?
Basically, The 1Sheeld is based throughout an ATMEGA162 and introduces a BlueTooth module underneath. 1 Sheeld consists of two parts. The first part is a shield that is connected to the Arduino board and acts wirelessly between Arduino and any smartphone via Bluetooth. The second part is a software part which is an app on Android smartphones that maintains the communication between the shield and a smartphone.
How 1Sheeld works ?
This 1sheeld consists two parts, so the 1Sheel is connected to a mobile app which allows the usage of all of Android smartphones’ capabilities into your Arduino sketch such as LCD Screen, Gyroscope, Switches, LEDs, Accelerometer, Magnetometer, GSM, Wi-Fi, GPS …etc.
The Arduino board and acts wirelessly between Arduino and any smartphone via Bluetooth, By doing that, you can use 1Sheeld as input or output from Arduino and make use of all of the sensors and peripherals already available on your Android smartphone instead of buying the actual shields.
Features of 1Sheeld
There are various features inbuilt in 1 Sheeld thats provides an amazing creative platform to the developers.
Buzzer Shield – The speaker in your smartphone buzz a certain tone, so their is no need to buy a
speaker and hook it up to Arduino
Keypad Shield – You can smartphone touchscreen as a keypad. If you want to open your room’s door with a pin code, by using few code lines you can enter a password to trigger Arduino and open your door using a motor.
Twitter Shield – Twitter shield allows you to send tweets with only 1 line of code in your sketch.
Foursquare Shield – Now you can check-in at any place automatically given the ID of the place if required
Gyroscope Sensor Shield – Tinker with the Gyroscope sensor in your smartphone and turn on
some LEDs while playing with them by getting the values on the 3-Axis (X, Y & Z), you can apply it
also to drive an Arduino controlled car.
Accelerometer Shield – Get the acceleration of moving objects is easier now by writing a simple line in your sketch, the shield gets you the data of X, Y and Z axis of the accelerometer sensor in your smartphone.There are many more features.
Specifications and Design of 1Sheeld
