Forget the Arduino IDE: 5 Awesome Alternatives

Arduino IDE Alternatives

The Arduino IDE is a great development tool for those just getting started with Arduino. However, if you’re an intermediate prototyper or have a strong programming background, you’ll find it to be pretty basic. The development features are pretty limited, and you have to write your programs in Arduino’s version of C/C++. The IDE supports […]

Make an Autonomous Robot Tank with HC-SR04 Sensor

robot tank ultrasonic sensor

The epitome of robotics is obstacle detection and avoidance. With a simple HC-SR04 sensor, you can detect objects with using ultrasonic waves (sound). In this project, we will use the HC-SR04 sensor and write software for our Robot Tank to avoid obstacles. We’ll make it a bit more complex by utilizing a servo motor to […]
