Arduino Projects For Dummies

Discover all the amazing things you can do with Arduino

Arduino Projects For Dummies

Arduino is a programmable circuit board that is being used by everyone from scientists, programmers, and hardware hackers to artists, designers, hobbyists, and engineers in order to add interactivity to objects and projects and experiment with programming and electronics. This easy-to-understand book is an ideal place to start if you are interested in learning more about Arduino's vast capabilities. Featuring an array of cool projects, this Arduino beginner guide walks you through every step of each of the featured projects so that you can acquire a clear understanding of the different aspects of the Arduino board.
  • Introduces Arduino basics to provide you with a solid foundation of understanding before you tackle your first project
  • Features a variety of fun projects that show you how to do everything from automating your garden's watering system to constructing a keypad entry system, installing a tweeting cat flap, building a robot car, and much more
  • Provides an easy, hands-on approach to learning more about electronics, programming, and interaction design for Makers of all ages
Arduino Projects For Dummies is your guide to turning everyday electronics and plain old projects into incredible innovations.

Make: More Electronics: Journey Deep Into the World of Logic Chips, Amplifiers, Sensors, and Randomicity

Make: More Electronics: Journey Deep Into the World of Logic Chips, Amplifiers, Sensors, and Randomicity

Want to learn even more about electronics in a fun, hands-on way? If you finished the projects in Make: Electronics, or if you're already familiar with the material in that book, you're ready for Make: More Electronics. Right away, you'll start working on real projects, and you'll explore all the key components and essential principles through the book's collection of experiments. You'll build the circuits first, then learn the theory behind them!

This book picks up where Make: Electronics left off: you'll work with components like comparators, light sensors, higher-level logic chips, multiplexers, shift registers, encoders, decoders, and magnetic sensors. You'll also learn about topics like audio amplification, randomicity, as well as positive and negative feedback. With step-by-step instructions, and hundreds of color photographs and illustrations, this book will help you use -- and understand -- intermediate to advanced electronics concepts and techniques.

Programming Arduino Next Steps: Going Further with Sketches

Take your Arduino skills to the next level!

Programming Arduino Next Steps: Going Further with Sketches (Tab)

In this practical guide, electronics guru Simon Monk takes you under the hood of Arduino and reveals professional programming secrets. Featuring coverage of the Arduino Uno, Leonardo, and Due boards, Programming Arduino Next Steps: Going Further with Sketches shows you how to use interrupts, manage memory, program for the Internet, maximize serial communications, perform digital signal processing, and much more. All of the 75+ example sketches featured in the book are available for download.

Learn advanced Arduino programming techniques, including how to:
  • Use hardware and timer interrupts
  • Boost performance and speed by writing time-efficient sketches
  • Minimize power consumption and memory usage
  • Interface with different types of serial busses, including I2C, 1-Wire, SPI, and TTL Serial
  • Use Arduino with USB, including the keyboard and mouse emulation features of the Leonardo and Due boards
  • Program Arduino for the Internet
  • Perform digital signal processing
  • Accomplish more than one task at a time—without multi-threading
  • Create and release your own code library
