Picaxe 08M IR Computer transmitter
Hey guys, This is my latest project that I thought I would put up on the site to maybe give a little inspiration! What I have made is IR transmitter that I can hook up and use my GUI that I create in Visual Basic 6. Inside the little black box is a Picaxe 08M.
How it works.
1. VB6 program sends out 1 character through serial (picaxe cable) to the transmitter
2. Picaxe 08M inside the transmitter receives the serial character and decides what IR variable to send out.
3. Transmitter sends out the IR variable.
4. Project receives the IR command and performs the required action.
This setup only allows one way communication but suits what I have planned for future projects. At the moment on my setup I only have one IR led but plan on adding more in future to give it a wider viewing angle. At the moment I have to make sure the transmitter is pointing in the projects direction.
Any questions feel free to ask!
