First Steps with the Arduino-UNO | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Sensor-Kit SKA-36

Arduino Sensor-Kit SKA-36.

Got my package delivered with my ordered Arduino Sensor-Kit today (2 days later than expected…). First impressions: nice plastic suitcase (helps me to keep order…), 60 pins quality breadboard and cable-set, 40 sensors and a download link (www.joy-it.net/sensorkit/) for the code and description in German. The mentioned link isn’t up-to-date anymore and one gets redirected to another website http://sensorkit.joy-it.net/index.php?title=Hauptseite in German.

Arduino Sensor-Kit SKA-36-40 sensors

.

Some basic knowledge is necessary to get started with the sensors:

We need to know that for some project with sensors there is a special library which needs to get included into the sketch and that the results (measures) will get shown in the “Serial Monitor” as the “Sensor-Kit” doesn’t include a LCD-Display.

Find out more yourself with the links below, please:

TIP for beginners: first copy&paste the code and let it run; check where are variables in the code, change them and see WHAT happens. You will understand the about how the code works 😉

KY-050 with Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 and Arduino Tutorial

Well, I didn’t like much the German description, so I was searching on the internet and I found some tutorials in English with a video tutorial, one simple sketch and one sketch with an LCD as well, very interesting <===> Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 and Arduino Tutorial

Please check the videos below who explains very well how the code works:

Another GREAT tutorial (my favorite), also with a video tutorial from Circuit basics could be found here HOW TO SET UP AN ULTRASONIC RANGE FINDER ON AN ARDUINO

And here below the video tutorial:

Here below some values measured shown in the “Serial Monitor“:

The Temperature/Humidity Sensor KY-015

ky-015In the original IDE this sensor isn’t included yet, WE need to install it on the IDE. By checking the description website of the Sensorkit-SK36-KY-015, WE get told that the module needs a library to get included in the sketch and it’s also mentioning some download links. Actually the description (in German) is poor and I got worried! So I decided to look around on the internet and I found a BETTER description (in English) on the official Arduino website <===> Installing Additional Arduino Libraries <===> 

BUT the BEST tutorial I have found is on the Arduino website itself <===> DHT11 Temperature/Humidity Sensor <===> with a lot of screenshots and a step by step instruction from where to get the code of the library, how to install it, and an example sketch.
