Infra Red Remote Controller Shield

Made use of The Forge makerspace at North Branch library to construct my first Arduino Shield. This shield adds 7 Status LEDs, an Infra Red LED, an Infra Red Receiver and a piezo buzzer.

Signal processing is handled by a great Arduino library written by Ken Shirriff and allows you to easily send and receive IR data. In order to use the tone function I had to change which Timer the Infra Red Remote Library uses so it would not conflict. Other than that, the Infra Red Remote Library works very well. In the video below I test the shield using a sketch that plays a different tone for various buttons pressed on an old clarion remote control I found lying around.


Ken Shirrif used this library for several applications:
