This video will show you how to make a colourful bed lamp using tilt sensor on Maker UNO.

Hardware Preparation

This is the components needed.

Sample Code

const int tiltPin = 2;
const int redLed = 11;
const int greenLed = 10;
const int blueLed = 9;
int tiltState;
int count = 0;
void setup() {
pinMode(redLed, OUTPUT);
pinMode(greenLed, OUTPUT);// initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:
pinMode(blueLed, OUTPUT);
pinMode(tiltPin, INPUT);
}
void loop() {
tiltState = digitalRead(tiltPin);
if (tiltState == HIGH) {
count++;
if (count > 8) {
count = 0;
}
switch (count) {
case 0: // off
analogWrite(redLed, LOW);
analogWrite(greenLed, LOW);
analogWrite(blueLed, LOW);
break;
case 1: //red
analogWrite(redLed, 255);
analogWrite(greenLed, 0);
analogWrite(blueLed, 0);
break;
case 2: //orange
analogWrite(redLed, 255);
analogWrite(greenLed, 128);
analogWrite(blueLed, 0);
break;
case 3: //yellow
analogWrite(redLed, 255);
analogWrite(greenLed, 255);
analogWrite(blueLed, 0);
break;
case 4: //green
analogWrite(redLed, 0);
analogWrite(greenLed, 255);
analogWrite(blueLed, 0);
break;
case 5: //blue
analogWrite(redLed, 0);
analogWrite(greenLed, 0);
analogWrite(blueLed, 255);
break;
case 6: //purple
analogWrite(redLed, 127);
analogWrite(greenLed, 0);
analogWrite(blueLed, 255);
break;
case 7: //pink
analogWrite(redLed, 255);
analogWrite(greenLed, 0);
analogWrite(blueLed, 255);
break;
case 8: //white
analogWrite(redLed, 255);
analogWrite(greenLed, 255);
analogWrite(blueLed, 255);
break;
default:
break;
}
delay(500);
while (digitalRead(tiltPin));
delay(500);
}
}
