Today I will show you how to make a capacitive sensor with Arduino UNO.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Watch the Video !!!
Step 2: Parts for the Project
You will need:
- 1 x Arduino board
- 1 x 1M resistor
- 1 x Touch plate
- 1x Breadboard
- 1 x LED
- 2 x Jumpers
Step 3: Put All Together
First plug in the resistor in pin 4 and pin 8 of the Arduino, then connect the touch plate with pin 8 of the Arduino.
Now plug in the LED to the breadboard, connect LED's "-" to Arduino's GND and "+" to pin 7.
Step 4: Upload the Sketch
Step 5: Done !
You are done, touch the plate and the LED shoud light up. You can modify the sketch and for other "capacitive" needs.
