Introduction: HALLOWEEN LAMP

We have carried out the realization of this project for the subject "Academic Uses and specific terminology in English". This is a project in which we must apply our knowledge about programming and circuit making, applying them to create a prototype related to the Halloween theme


-Arduino Uno: Open source microcontroller board

-1 Servo: Actuator device that has the ability to be located in any position within its operating range, and to remain stable in that position.

-2 LED diodes: The diodes are electronic components that allow the passage of current in one direction, in the opposite direction they do not let the current pass. A LED is a diode that in addition to allowing the passage of current only one way, in the sense in which the current passes through the diode it emits light

-1 Ultrasonic sensor: proximity detector that works free of mechanical friction and that detects objects at distances ranging from a few centimeters to several meters

-2 220 Ohms resistors: electronic component designed to introduce a certain electrical resistance between two points of an electrical circuit

-Jumpers: Element that is responsible for joining or bridging between two terminals thus closing an electrical circuit.

-1 Protoboard: Board with holes that are electrically connected to each other internally, usually following line patterns.

Step 2: Create the Circuit:

To carry out the realization of our project, we have created a circuit in which we can find 1 Servo, 2 LEDs, 1 ultrasonic sensor, 2 resistors of 220 Ohms and several jumpers, all incorporated in a protoboard, in addition to 1 Arduino ONE.

Next, you can see how these components are placed and connected.

Step 3: Create the Code

Next we carry out the realization of the code. Thanks to this we can determine several project requirements.

The purpose of the code is to get the two LEDs light and the servo turned on when someone goes in front of the prototype. This is achieved thanks to the ultrasonic sensor.

Step 4: 3D Modeling

To carry out the realization of the prototype, we first modeled the 3D with SolidWorks.

Second, once we have the SolidWorks document, we print the prototype with a 3D printer.

Here we can find the SolidWorks documents needed to carry out 3D printing.

Step 5: Incorporate the Circuit to the Prototype

Once we have the 3D printed prototype, we proceed to incorporate the circuit inside the prototype.

We place the ultrasonic sensor on top, we stick the servo to the built-in spider and finally, we put the protoboard in a box attached to the back of the prototype.


After carrying out this project, we have been able to understand in depth the knowledge imparted in the subject of “Academic Uses and Specific Terminology in English”. We have compiled several exercises carried out in the subject and we have applied them together in a single project.

On the other hand, it has also helped us to understand the functioning of some objects around us, specifically the decorative elements focused on the theme of Halloween.
