Automated Arduino Reset

Introduction: Automated Arduino Reset

In this Instructable we look at an automated way to reset your Arduino from code. This method does not use the Watch Dog Timer.

The disadvantage of this method versus the Watch Dog Timer is it requires extra hardware components. To access the code from this video go to my blog at
