Arduino + MQ3 = alcohol breath tester

Posted on Friday, December 17th, 2010 in Arduino, measurement by the machinegeek

This the season for good cheer, and what can be more cheerful than a project that’s as much fun to use as it is to build? How about a homebrew alcohol breath tester? Daniel Andrade shows how to build just such a device using just an Arduino, MQ3 alcohol sensor and a handful of resistors and LEDs. While this project is for academic and experimental purposes only, we suggest testing its calibration often.
