Bluetooth Based Programmable LED Message Board Circuit Based aon ATMega328

Electronic Kit School. - This is the idea and implementation of remotely editing the text or message of the LED Matrix Display (Custom LED Signs) are presented. 

There are electronic design circuit to Bluetooth Based Programmable LED Message Board Based on ATMega328 like in the Figure 1 below. The main component are used like resistors, capacitors, Bluetooth and ATMega328

In this time, beside we will show you the circuit, here we also will show you component part and global description about this circuit.

Component Parts
  1. ATMega328
  2. LED Matric
  3. Bluetooth
  4. Others

Circuit like in Figure 1 above show you about the Bluetooth Based Programmable LED Message Board Circuit Based on ATMega328. From Circuitstoday site describe that the message or text can be edited to bring custom LED signs by connecting the Display to a computer using a Serial cable (RS-232). The RS-232 Voltage level is converted to TTL Level using a level shifting IC (MAX 232). The serial data sent by the computer is then processed by the microcontroller of the Display circuit. The new message is stored in the EEPROM of the microcontroller. At every start-up or Power ON, this data is read from the EEPROM of the microcontroller and thus the message is displayed.

The idea is not limited to computer-based editing. It can be applied to any type of data transmission, which uses UART mode of serial data transmission, it may be wired or wireless. Nowadays, the Bluetooth feature of the smartphones is commonly used for remote control applications. The same can be used to edit the message of the Display as well. Below is the demo which shows editing the message using Bluetooth feature.

Robot Technology News: Robots Made These Paintings and They're Very, Very Good

ElectronicKitSchool. - This is one information update from robot technology news 2018 in this time with the article titled Robots Made These Paintings and They're Very, Very Good that written by Laura Yan and published in Popular Machines site.

Entries for the 2018 RobotArt competitions are in. The top 10 teams have been announced, and you can see the robot-painters’ impressive works in an online gallery. This year’s first-place artist, CloudPainter used machine learning to generate portraits and landscapes (including a re-imagination of Cezanne). The second place team chose impressionistic paintings with “a high level of skill with brushstrokes,” and the third place team programmed a robot “brushstroke by stroke,” using haptic recording and playback to generate gorgeous reproductions of Van Gogh landscapes.

For the first time this year, patrons can also buy AI produced paintings at the Seattle Art Fair on August 2-5th. Robot art creators range from engineers to schools and artists, and AI systems can create paintings from landscapes that mimic old masters to abstract, colorful pieces. "I think technology tools, such as the robotic art and algorithms that we're playing with here, opens us to a future that blurs the lines of what is the artist and what are you trying to accomplish with your medium," RobotArt founder Andrew Conru told Vice Creators.

For anyone worried that AI artists are going to take over jobs for human painters, not to worry, Conru says. “Human generate art will always be highly respected not only for its creativity but in our shared human experience. While we may be impressed by AI chess software, we are thrilled and impressed by human grandmasters.” In fact, AI could help humans artists create pieces that are more ambitious than before.
