In this video tutorial we are going to see how use the TCS230 color sensor with Arduino. It is a very interesting sensor that will enable us to build some amazing projects. Without any further delay, let’s get started!

Hey guys, I am Nick and welcome to educ8s.tv a channel that is all about DIY electronics projects with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP8266 and other popular boards. In this video we are going to learn how to use the TCS230 color sensor, a very interesting sensor. I have built a simple project to demonstrate that this sensor is really capable. I use an Arduino Uno and a 1.8” Color TFT display and of course the color sensor. As you can see, the sensor detects the colors and it displays them on the screen. The color we get on the screen is pretty close to the real color of the object. Cool isn’t it? Now, let’s see the parts that we need in order to build this project.
The parts needed are these:

Let’s now see the software side of the project. In order to use the color sensor we need two libraries. We need the TCS230 library and the Frequency library. We also need two libraries for the display. You can find links for all the libraries we use in the description of the video.
