Arduino Projects - Arduino UnoWe are hand-picking the best Arduino Projects to power up your skills. We are working on a brilliant selection of inspirational ideas to help you build extraordinary projects without the need for expensive add-ons, or hard-to-find-parts. Learn, master & create fun arduino projects. Our fun projects are going to be great for beginners, advanced users, hobbyists, students and teachers.

Introduced in 2005, the Arduino platform was designed to provide an affordable way for hobbyists, professionals and students to create applications that play in the human interface world using ultrasonic sensors, actuators, motors, and other rudimentary products.

"Uno" means one in Italian and was chosen to mark the release of Arduino Software (IDE) 1.0. The Uno board and version 1.0 of Arduino Software (IDE) were the reference versions of Arduino, now evolved to newer releases. The Uno board is the first in a series of USB Arduino boards, and the reference model for the Arduino platform. If you don't have the Arduino Software (IDE) yet, you may download the Arduino Software here.

An Arduino board such as the Arduino UNO is relatively inexpensive compared to other microcontroller platforms. The least expensive version of the Arduino module can be assembled by hand, and even the pre-assembled Arduino modules cost less than $50. Simple, clear programming environment - The Arduino programming environment is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users to take advantage of as well. Here's a list of programming languages that the Arduino uses.

The biggest advantage of Arduino is its ready to use structure. As Arduino comes in a complete package form which includes the 5V regulator, a burner, an oscillator, a micro-controller, serial communication interface, LED and headers for the connections. You don’t have to think about programmer connections for programming or any other interface. Just plug it into USB port of your computer and that’s it. Your revolutionary idea is going to change the world after just few words of coding.

Anything is possible with the remarkable power of Arduino. It's fun, easy, it's straightforward and makes embedding electronics into the world-at-large. Check out our first Arduino project below and get inspired to build your own reality.

Our Top Ultrasonic Sensors for your Arduino Projects

Below is a list of ultrasonic sensors that have the ability to make your life 10x easier.

Arduino Projects - Arduino UnoHigh Performance Ultrasonic Precision Rangefinder - HRLV-MaxSonar®-EZ™. The high resolution HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ senors are high performance ultrasonic sensors with noise rejection, improved automatic calibration, and factory calibrated beam patterns.

Top 5 Robot Bases Arduino Projects


The possibilities of the Arduino are almost limitless. As such, there is no way that one single tutorial can cover everything you might ever need to know. That said, we've done our best to give a basic overview of the fundamental skills and knowledge that you need to get your Arduino up and running. If nothing more, the tutorials that we will be publishing will function as a springboard into further experimentation and learning.

Typical Wall Pipe Many customers have requested the option to mount an ultrasonic sensor in a pipe. During the testing and development cycle, we discovered a number of considerations and requirements that must be met for the application to be successful. When all of these are met, a user may be able to achieve the desired level of success for measuring the liquid level inside of a pipe.
