Small Basic – Arduino Sample Programs

This March LitDev introduced about Arduino on this blog.  Today, I'd like to introduce my Small Basic programs using Arduino.

The first one is the IR Turtle controller (HLT038).

The circuit is like (GZN399):

The Arduino program irdemo.ino is from  More details about this program are described here.

The second one is a thermometer (KKK886).

The circuit is like (GZN399-0):

The Arduino program is as follows.

//TMP36 Pin Variables
int sensorPin = 5; // the analog pin the TMP36's Vout (sense) pin is connected to
                   // the resolution is 10 mV / degree centigrade with a
                   // 500 mV offset to allow for negative temperatures
float lastTemp;    // last temperature
 * setup() - this function runs once when you turn your Arduino on
 * We initialize the serial connection with the computer
void setup()
  Serial.begin(9600);  // Start the serial connection with the computer
                        // to view the result open the serial monitor 
void loop()                     // run over and over again
  //getting the voltage reading from the temperature sensor
  int reading = analogRead(sensorPin);  
  // converting that reading to voltage, for 3.3v arduino use 3300
  int mV = map(reading, 0, 1023, 0, 5000);
  // now print out the temperature
  float temperatureC = (mV - 500) / 10.0 ;  //converting from 10 mV per degree with 500 mV offset
                                            //to degrees ((voltage - 500mV) times 100)
  if (temperatureC != lastTemp) {
    lastTemp = temperatureC;
  delay(1000);                                     //waiting a second

Arduino can be connected with many types of sensors or actuators.  So, with this device, we can explore Small Basic world more and more interesting!

    nice work nonki))
    updated ur arduino project in order to simulate 3 leds flashing in rgb: NCH457

    Very interesting !
    SB is much powerful than i thought 🙂

  3. Fantastic Arduino samples!

      found some great site about arduino and rasp.pi:

    Your connection graph is very clear and nice. Which graph tool do you use?

    1. elane, this tool is just a Small Basic program. Thank you for your comment.
