First off, I hope the outputs of the darlington array arent' tied together (the gain of a bjt increases with heat and you will get thermal runaway when a bunch of bjt's are paralleled.) Second, I assume you are going through a ballast made for the tube, and are not trying to drive it directly, as flourescents require huge voltage levels to turn on

A standard relay will work. Remember that the power factor of older style fluorescent lamps with inductive type ballasts is very low (around 0.4). This means that the current will be more than 2.5 times the current that you would calculate from the wattage rating of the fixutre (taking into account the PF and the fact that the ballast i

As "betwixt" wrote, you may connect the inputs and the outputs of the ULN and then drive the 1amp load or if you choose to use a relay, you may follow the attached schematic. But for using just one relay you may consider using just one NPN transistor instead using the ULN. Cheers

I think what you need is a comparator driving a relay so the cell switches off at a certain, predetermined light level.
Use the photoresistor and a fixed resistor to make a potential divider and feed it to one side of a comparator. Use a potentiometer on the other comparator input so set the light level at which it will change state. The (...)

Your statement says ULN2804 but your circuit is ULN2003.
you are sinking the current through load. So, No problem in supply voltage. Make sure the relay current should be less than the ULN datasheet other wise shunt the pins.
First Check the condition of the relay, by simply shorting 16 and 8 th pins in your circuit. If it is fine

You set the threshold using the pot in the opamp's other input. You drive the relay using a simple transistor (like 2N2222 or something similar).

It is not the relay that produce a digital level. The inductive loop is a part of a tuned self-oscillating LC circuit. When a car narrows this circuit decreases frequency as inductive value increases and opposite when a car leaves the loop.
Resulting varying frequency can be demodulated as FM or FSK resulting in a analog level. This signal can the

Logically you need a switch with memory that can switch off/on externally in series with existing wiring but returns to NC or normally closed contacts when the ignition goes Off/On. A momentary switch makes sense here to "reset" the light "state" when "on" by default so that the car state 0 to 1 turns the light on regardless of switch.

It is possible that the relay coil is taking too much current. That is, the current provided by the motor driver is not enough to handle the motor and the relay in parallel.
Take care you may blow the driver at the car. You may try a relay with more resistance.
Also the remote car may vary the speed by a method called PWM and this could (...)
