Tutorial: Arduino Lesson 9. Sensing Light


Tutorial: Arduino Lesson 9. Sensing Light @ The Adafruit Learning System.

In this lesson, you will learn how to measure light intensity using an Analog Input. You will build on lesson 8 and use the level of light to control the number of LEDs to be lit. The photocell is at the bottom of the breadboard, where the pot was in lesson 8.
