The project described below shows a way to make your android phone as the IR remote for your TV set. Read on to know more about this.
The project would need some fairly simple components that is easily available. These can be listed as follows:
- Arduino microcontroller
- IR LED
- Bluetooth module
- Android phone
The working of the project is very simple and works on the basic principle of IR and Bluetooth. The android phone used in the project communicates to the arduino microcontroller with the help of the Bluetooth module and then sends out the commands in the form of IR waves. These IR waves are send out by the phone. Coding that has been used in the project is taken from the Lucas Eckels.
The code is works for the three digit functions. This can be improved further by introducing some programming patches to the original code that has been used in the current project.
Moreover, the arduino serial monitor has been used to monitor the functions or commands being send out using the Bluetooth module.
