Arduino Possibilities and Limitations? Answered
Hi! I am an Industrial Design student in the Philippines, and I have here some questions where I badly need answers because this is for my project. My lamp design is an Arduino-operated lamp, that has both a manual switch and an automatic switch. For the manual switch (where in the lamp can be turned on in your desired time), I plan to use a pushbutton. For the automatic switch (where in the lamp will automatically turn on during night time), I plan to use a Light Dependent Resistor. Aside from the two, my teacher also wants me to add an interesting feature which is the lamp's adjustable brightness. To adjust the light's brightness, I am not really sure if I'll be using potentiometer, or dimmer.
Stuffs I plan to use:
Arduino Uno, LED Strips, Transistor, 9V Battery pack, LM7805 Voltage Regulator, Pushbutton, Resistors, Potentiometer and LDR.
Would it be pssoible? Please help me on this. And please do drop some suggestions.
My apologies, I am still new to Arduino, we only had Basic Arduino before.
Thanks, and Godbless!
