How to simulate Arduino in Proteus

Arduino is a must have for all those people who love electronics and want do something good with their spare time. Arduinos are available in different sizes ( I am not referring to their physical sizes, rather their processor capabilities,ports etc.. ) and for almost all the uses that we want from a board. From Arduino Nano to Arduino robot there are around 20 boards to suit our use, and each one has a special built in module, specific for athe application that we intend to achieve with it. 

For all those who want to use the board for a general purpose ( for people like me who doesn’t stick on with a single project and keep on experimenting with it :) ) I would recommend Arduino Uno board ( It’s affordable also ). But sometimes what happens is, we won’t be having the board with us but still we want to check if the code written is working or not.

Robots on cloud – Smaller, Cheaper and Smarter

The visionary story teller Isaac Asimov  told the world about the future era of robots  and automatons in 1950’s through his works, and inspired them to make robotics a reality. Even though he was not a scientist or a core technical guy, his imaginations and predictions are the beginning of the ‘present’ that we are having. So, from its embryonic stage, robotics is growing by trying to realize the dreams of some imaginary people and their works.
The Matrix (1999), was more of a technological movie than just a usual action flick.  You may disagree with the author now, but after reading this story, you will definitely start believing it. In the movie the wachowski brothers portrayed many fascinating things  that we could only dream of, but the audience discarded them thinking they were just some imaginary fantasies and are never going to be anywhere near  the ‘reality’. In the movie, characters were able to learn a particular skill just by downloading the required data into their brain. That’s how Trinity learns to fly a helicopter and Neo learns to fight in just  fraction of a second.
So, according to a new technology all these are no longer just a dream or crazy imagination but a reality that we will heavily depend in future. For us humans, with our offline, non-upgradable meat brains, the possibility of acquiring new skills by connecting our heads to a computer network is still science fiction.
But not so for robots..

Robots On Cloud

Its a presentation on the upcoming technolgy in the field of robotics, which enables them to be
