Project 1 – Servo Controlled Blinds


For our first project I will look at automating some venetian blinds that we had installed a while back. This project came about through a need for reducing the amount of sunlight into our home office, minimising any sun damage to books and equipment. The list of components used for this project include:

1 x Arduino Uno

2 x High torque servos

1 x Proto screw Shield v3 expansion board

1 x servo/motorshield

2 x N-MOSFET transistors

1 x 12vdc power supply

1 x double barrel splitter

1 x roll of black wire

1 x roll of red wire

1 x roll of white wire
