Here we had complied a list of top 10 Arduino Project 2017 that would be cool, useful and efficient to design in free time. Before talking about the list of 10 awesome project using arduino we would like to clear some point about arduino board.
So, what is Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source design consist a microcontroller and all the necessary circuitry on a signal board. A USB plug is given to communicate between computer and arduino board. The programming is done in Arduino Programming Language which is basically extended version of C Programming language. Before starting project on Arduino, first download an Arduino software from www.arduino.cc for your machine (PC, MAC or Linux). Arduino is an easy to use hardware board.
There are different types of arduino board available nowadays (Arduino UNO, Arduino NANO, Arduino TINY, Arduino MEGA etc.) but these all board can be programmed from same arduino development software. The list of 10 arduino project shown below mostly uses Arduino UNO but you may replace with another board with little or no modification in hardware and software. If you wish to buy an arduino UNO go for it, this should come in budget. All you need is an Arduino board and some other basic electronics components like resistor, capacitors, sensor module etc. for making any of the projects.
Accident Detection and Alert System using Arduino
Accident Detection and Alert System is designed using Arduino UNO, GSM module, GPS module and Vibration Sensor Module. The vibration sensor module used in this project is used to detect the change in linear velocity, displacement or acceleration. GPS module detect the exact location (longitude and latitude) and GSM module is used to send the all information to the mobile number assigned in the software code.

Arduino and RFID Based Attendance System
The project Arduino and RFID Based Attendance System is a simple and is used at any place where attendance is taken for maintaining register. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) use an electromagnetic field to detect unique tag assigned to object in the vicinity. RFID tag is more secure and conventional because RFID traces tags hidden inside objects unlike bar codes. It distinguishes authorize and un-authorize user in order to maintain monthly weekly or monthly log.

DIY Breathalyzer using Arduino and MQ-3 Sensor Module
The breathalyzer or breathalyzer is an electronic device which is used to estimate the concentration of alcohol available in breath sample. This device is usually carried by traffic police, medical person etc. in order to check the blood alcohol content for either legal or medical purpose. The circuit of DIY breathalyzer is shown in figure 1. It is designed using arduino uno board, MQ-3 sensor (alcohol sensor), few LEDs (indication of concentration of alcohol) and few other electronic components for working flawlessly. The working is quite straightforward, any one with little knowledge in arduino can understand easily.

Arduino FM Transmitter
The project “Arduino FM Transmitter” is basically a radio station with transmit either voice or music nearby area, within the range of 50 meters range. The project uses very few components i.e arduino uno board (MCU) and a FM transmitter V2.0 module. This project has various application like it can be implemented in college hospital etc. where announcements have to done.

Arduino FM Receiver Circuit using TEA5767
The circuit posted here is of Arduino FM Receiver using digital radio—receiver module TEA5657 by Philips. Additional of components like audio power amplifier, arduino uno board and LCD module to display station number and frequency. However, for the receiving system to function flawlessly, external components like capacitor, resistor etc. included in the circuit which is obvious necessity.

Soil Moisture Meter using Arduino
The project ‘Soil Moisture Meter using Arduino’ uses arduino board, a 16×2 LCD module and soil moisture sensor in order to display the humidity (moisture) of soil. This project is very useful for farmer, floriculture, researchers etc. in order to know the moisture of soil at different stage. The working principle and circuit description is very simple that anymore can understand who have little knowledge of arduino board. The project is basically an interfacing circuit between arduino board with LCD and sensor.

Temperature Controlled Fan using Arduino
The project ‘Temperature Controlled Fan using arduino’ is simply fabricated around arduino uno board and temperature sensor LM35. The projects are good example of embedded system basically designed using closed-looped feedback control system. For proper user interface visual indication we had also used LCD which indicate temperature as well as speed of fan.

Arduino Fingerprint Sensor Lock
The project “Arduino Fingerprint Sensor Lock” is simply fabricated around Arduino board. Not only to ensure door security, this project also make certain to assist in fields like forensics, crime investigation, personal identification, attendance system and there is a lot more. Recently, there has been recorded tremendous increase in the crime rate everywhere in the world. This issue is turning more severe every day. To get away with this problem, we decided to take help from technology and there this project “Arduino Fingerprint Sensor Lock” developed.

Earthquake Detector using Arduino
Earthquake Detector using Arduino :- Circuit Diagram, working and circuit description with result and software code including library file of Earth Quake Detector. The device “Earthquake Detector using Arduino” can sense vibrations and knocks along the three physical dimensions or axes, which make it more sensitive. Once it identifies vibration, it is applied with acceleration and ADXL335 produces an analogue voltage equivalent to acceleration imposed on it by the vibration.

Hypnotizer Using Arduino
Hypnotizer is device which is used to control mind and is one of the favorite things of us. Here is a project called hypnotizer using arduino shown in figure 1, which control the motor and also rotate it into clock wise and anti close wise direction. A spiral disk shown in figure 2, attached to a motor and rotates as motor rotates to mesmerize the unfortunate victims.
