COVID-19 quarantine projects to try with eduArdu while at home :)

Keep social distance while drinking with friends 🙂

No this is not an eduArdu project, but it is still fun to implement.

The eduArdu Social Distance project is using the onboard Ultra sound distance meter and beeps with its buzzer when someone comes closer than 1.5 meters from you.

The eduArdu Infrared Thermometer project uses MOD-IR-TEMP and scans surface temperature from a distance of few centimeters. If the read temperature is above 38 C it will beep with the buzzer to warn you.


Both projects are easy to implement together with your children.

    Following you recommendation I’m spending some time right now with eduArdu. Just to note that on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS I experienced the following error when uploading from Arduno IDE:

    avrdude: Expected signature for ATmega32U4 is 1E 95 87

    The solution is to stop modemmanager:

    systemctl stop ModemManager
