The link for the video containing the Top 10 Arduino-Sensor Projects in 2020 is given below-


  1. Speed Regulator

DESCRIPTION– Our goal is to regulate the speed of a 5V geared motor. This is an innovative project that allows you to make a speed regulator at home using an Arduino Uno and a speed sensor. The speed sensor detects the change in the value of the 10K pot and varies the speed accordingly. Now you don’t need to worry about the low speed of fan interrupting your NETFLIX experience.

Components required for the project are

  1. Arduino Uno
  2. LM393 Speed Sensor Module
  3. 5V geared motor with encoder wheel
  4. PCB and breadboard
  5. Cables and connectors
  6. 16×2 LCD
  7. 10K POT

  1. Colour Sensor

DESCRIPTION- This project allows you to detect the colour of something without even looking at it. When we place a colored sheet in front of the sensor, it detects the color and flashes it on the 16×2 LCD. This project can come in handy for blind or color blind people or save your relationship when she asks you to pick up the perfect shade of Lipstick.

Components required for the project are

  1. Arduino Uno
  2. 16*2 LCD
  3. TCS-3200 / TCS-230 Color Sensor

  1. Temperature detector

Description- In this project, you will learn how to make a digital thermometer at home using Arduino Uno and a temperature sensor. Now you don’t need to wait for your soup to ruin before realizing that it has been burnt. All you need to do is, place the sensor near the soup. The sensor will detect the temperature and flash it onto the 16×2 LCD.

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino Uno
  2. LM35DZ Temperature Sensor
  3. 16×2 LCD
  4. Breadboard
  5. Cables and Connectors

Link to the project is given below-


  1. Alcohol Detector

DESCRIPTION- With this project you can make your handy alcohol detector at home and save yourself when your drunk friend insists on driving, claiming that he is not drunk. An alcohol detector detects the presence of alcohol present in its surrounding atmosphere and sends a signal to flash a warning message on the 16×2 LCD and set out the alarming buzzer. Congratulations! Now you are a traffic cop (almost)!

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino Nano
  2. 16×2 LCD screen
  3. PCB
  4. MQ-2 sensor
  5. Female Header pin
  6. 10K POT
  7. Buzzer
  8. 9V battery
  9. Connecting wires

  1. PIR Sensor based Smart Lamp

DESCRIPTION- If you find flipping the light switch to be a pesky task then you can automate your house with the application of this project. You can make this project with the help of an Arduino and a PIR sensor. A PIR sensor works on the principle of thermal imaging so when it senses the presence of a human or animal body in its vicinity, it automatically sends a signal to turn the device on or off. Other than home automation, you can implement this idea to enhance your home security. Although you may need to call the cops yourself.

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino
  2. Wi-Fi module
  3. PIR Sensor
  4. Breadboard
  5. Connecting wires

  1. Water Flow and Volume Measurement

DESCRIPTION- This project demonstrates a smart way to monitor the flow of water. The water flow sensor detects the rate of flow of water and keeps track of the total amount of water that has flowed through it. You can check the values on the LCD screen.

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino
  2. Water Flow Sensor
  3. Breadboard
  4. 16×2 LED display
  5. Connecting wires
  6. Water pipe
  7. Transistor

  1. Gas Detector

DESCRIPTION- Keep your hose and neighbourhood safe from blowing up with this simple and economical project that alerts the user if there is any gas leakage in household premises.

The gas sensor in the circuit detects quickly senses the butane gas which triggers an alarm in the circuit along with the message signal sent to the owner over the internet.

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino Nano
  2. MQ2 gas sensor
  3. 220 OHM resistors 2 nos
  4. Red and Green LED
  5. 9V battery and clip

  1. Soil Moisture Monitoring

DESCRIPTION- Now you don’t need to worry about killing your plants anymore. With soil moisture monitor you can monitor the volumetric content of water in the soil. The sensor detects the moisture level and displays it onto the LCD screen so that you could know how much water you need to give to your plants.

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino
  2. Soil Moisture Sensor Module.
  3. 16×2 LCD
  4. Some Jumper Wires

  1. Ultrasonic sensor LED Project

DESCRIPTION- This is my personal favorite among all other Arduino-Sensor Projects. This project allows you to detect the distance of an object or person from you. The ultrasonic sensor sends an ultrasonic signal with bounces back to it from the surface of the object. Based on the time taken by the signal it calculates the distance of the object from the sensor. Multicolour LEDs demonstrate the distance of a person or object. So now you can make sure that your ex and kidnappers don’t sneak up on you from behind.

Components required for the project are-

  1. Arduino Uno
  2. Ultrasonic sensor Hc-sr04
  3. 7 x LEDs
  4. 7 x 220ohm resistor
