LEDShoot - Electronic LED Shooting Game

LEDShoot is a simple electronic shooting game which we developed in a year end vacation period. This is a single player electronic game with following game play logic:

There are two fighting groups are exists in this game world. RED group is an enemy group and GREENs are friendly parties. Player’s job is to shoot the RED group(s) when they appear on the stage. Player gets limited time to shoot and misfires are treated as negative points. When player get 100 points game get end with winning message.


This electronic game system is mainly based on ATmega32 MCU and firmware is developed using GCC C (with Atmel Studio 6.0). This system is design to work with 5V - 1.5A power supply unit.

We developed this system as a hobby project and we construct it on a couple of breadboards, at the moment we don’t have any PCB design for this project.

When assembling the circuit make sure to use some heavy-duty push button for (SL2) control key. For (SL1) use 8Ω - 1W (60mm) speaker. LED19 indicate the "audio-mute" status of the system and player can toggle it by pressing the S2 push button.

This project is release as an open hardware project and all the source codes, schematic diagrams and compiled binaries are available to download at google drive. All the project source codes are released under the terms of GNU General Public License 3.0. Project schematic diagrams and EAGLE project files are released under the terms of Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license.

Enable WebRTC on QtWebEngine for Raspberry Pi 3

WebRTC is a web technology to enable peer to peer communication in real-time. It mainly uses to create video conferencing and chat applications using web browsers. In this post, we describe how to enable this technology in QtWebEngine on Raspberry Pi 3 platform.

QtWebEngine is an embedded browser component which comes with the Qt framework. This component is based on Google Chromium browser and it supports most of the Chromium features including WebRTC. In PC, WebRTC applications run smoothly on QtWebEngine component. But in Raspberry Pi platform situation is different and none of the WebRTC application is work with the QtWebEngine. The only thing which we can see is a black box in an HTML5 video tag area. At the time of writing this problem exists in Qt version 5.6, 5.7 and 5.8.

BMP180 based USB atmospheric pressure monitor

We initially developed this USB atmospheric pressure monitor to study some operating characteristics of Bosch BMP180 sensor. BMP180 is a low-cost sensor for measuring barometric pressure and temperature. According to the datasheet this sensor can use to measure pressure ranging between 300hPa to 1100hPa. This sensor is introduced a couple of years back but still, it is popular due to lower cost and simplicity of its interface.


We did this unit to test the BMP180 sensor more accurately and to study its behaviors. This unit is based on PIC18F2550 microcontroller and the main reason to select this MCU is because of its built-in USB 2.0 interface.


To display sensor calibration data and it’s readings we did small windows application. This application display and plot temperature and pressure readings captured from the BMP180 sensor.

This unit is programmed to work as a USB HID device and no special device driver is required to use this device. We test this unit in Windows 10 environment.

Programmable light controller

The main objective of this project is to design a maintenance free and low-cost light which automatically turns on and off at the predetermined time of the day.

To meet the above requirement I designed this controller using ATmega8 MCU and DS1307 RTC. The driver stage of this light controller is intended to work with commonly available 7W LED modules.


The core component of this programmable light is ATmega8 low power CMOS microcontroller. The main reason to select this microcontroller is it’s lower cost and higher availability. Except for the above two reasons this microcontroller also bundled with a rich set of peripherals which including 23 GPIOs, 3 independent timers, Two-wire serial interface, EEPROM, etc.

Apart from ATmega8 microcontroller, this system uses DS1307 real time clock to maintain system time. Like ATmega8, DS1307 is also a very popular RTC in the market.

This controller is designed to work with a 24V DC power supply. The main reason to select 24V is that most of the…
