7 Great Arduino Projects for Beginners with Code in 2022

If you are an Arduino beginner, willing to make awesome Arduino-based projects then you are in luck. These projects will not only give you a good understanding of Arduino but also teach you its applications.

There are four different kinds of Arduino sensors used in some projects. Hence you will learn how to use IR, Ultrasonic, Temperature sensors, and Light-dependent Resistor(LDR).

Moreover, Two different Arduino projects made using LDR are included. You’ll learn how a small sensor like LDR can be used to make some really cool projects.

The output devices are equally important as input devices. And it is essential to learn and know, which output device should be used in which application.

Output devices such as LEDs, DC motors, and Servo motors are explained and used in some of the projects. Finally, an Arduino -Home automation project made using an SPDT relay and LDR is also added to the list.

Having said that, let’s get started with our 7 awesome Arduino Projects for beginners.

Watch the video given below for a detailed explanation of each project:
