For part one, we used a potentiometer as the input to determine the brightness of a LED, the output. I set it up by having the potentiometer going into the A0 pin and the LED getting its output from pin 6. 556 more words


Lab 3: Sensors

Part one was simply a potentiometer controlling the brightness of an LED via the arduino. The analog input values were re-mapped to fit the 8-bit ADC in order to properly drive the LED from full on to completely off. 133 more words

Part 1: Potentiometers

Potentiometers are variable resistors and in this lab we used it to affect the output of the LED’s light. Below you can see how the potentiometer affected the LED’s light. 303 more words


Lab 3: Sensors, Sensors, Sensors

This Lab focused on sensors and understanding analog inputs and outputs. The first part of this lab involved creating a circuit with a basic knob potentiometer and an LED. 601 more words
