Arduino IR Remote Using TSOP Sensor

Arduino Tutorial

Welcome back to Techatronic. Hey guys in this article we will learn how to make Arduino IR Remote Using TSOP Sensor Module. If you are new to this field and want to explore more cool projects on Arduino, please click here. We use a TSOP sensor module for receiving the IR signals. You can use a T.V, radio, or any other kind of IR remote for sending the signals. IR technology is widely used in today’s world for manufacturing various products such as night vision cameras. The IR communication is working on wireless data transfer technology. The proximity sensor also uses an infrared transmitter and receiver for its operation. There are many variants of Arduino board available in the market but we use Arduino UNO for this project. Basically, Arduino is a microcontroller that operates on Atmega328p IC. You can also check Arduino IR Remote Control Project. You have to make the circuit according to the given circuit diagram and then upload the Arduino code which is also provided below.

How Does it Work?

The TSOP sensor module is controlled with the help of Arduino. The information or codes which are received by it is printed on the Arduino IDE serial monitor screen. same as you use an IR remote to control a T.V, home theater, car stereo, etc we use the remote here for sending the information. You can also use a small remote which comes along with this module or you can also buy it. In this IR data transmission technology, you must hold the remote in front of the TSOP sensor module in such a way that both facing each other. The receiver fails to receive any signal if there is an obstacle present in between the receiver and transmitter module. Once you complete the circuit and upload the given code, you have to turn the face of the remote having IR LED towards the TSOP sensor module and then press the buttons on it.

Make the circuit diagram according to the above circuit diagram. You can use a USB cable or a 5-volt DC adapter to power the Arduino. Connect the VCC pin of the TSOP sensor module to the 5-volt pin of the Arduino and GND of the TSOP sensor module to the GND pin of the Arduino. Attach the data pin of the TSOP sensor module to the digital 12 pin of the Arduino. Your receiver circuit is ready. Now upload the Arduino code given below.

Code of the Project

NOTE: Please upload the Arduino code which is provided below as it is using the Arduino IDE application. You have to install <IRremote.h> for working of the IR sensor.

 // TECHATRONIC.COM  
 // IR LIBRARY LINK  
 // https://github.com/Arduino-IRremote/Arduino-IRremote  
 #include <IRremote.h>  
 int RECV_PIN = 12;  
 int val ;  
 IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);  
 decode_results results;  
 void setup()  
 {  
  Serial.begin(9600);  
  irrecv.enableIRIn();   
  Serial.println("Enabled IRin");  
 }  
 void loop()   
 {  
  if (irrecv.decode(&results))   
  {   
   val = results.value, HEX ;  
   Serial.println(val); // Print the value in serial monitor  
   irrecv.resume();   // Receive the next value  
  }  
  delay(10);  
 }  

Another code for LED automation.
