The really cool thing about Arduino is that you can start playing with Physical Computing, Microcontrollers, and Embedded Systems without understanding much of what you are doing. The Arduino, designed for the novice, has become so popular that there is now an embarrassment of riches when it comes to amount of information and hardware available. So much stuff is out there, in fact, that some folks have trouble puzzling out what they need to just to get started. This text, An Arduino Workshop, and the associated hardware projects kit bring all the pieces of the puzzle together in one place. The author, Joe Pardue, writes the monthly Smiley's Workshop series in Nuts&Volts magazine and is known for his breezy writing style and lucid drawing and photographs that help folks understand complex technical topics. Not sure if this book is for you? Well, you can get a sample containing some of the books chapters as a downloadable PDF file from www.smileymicros.com. With this text and parts kit you will learn to: - Blink 8 LEDs (Cylon Eyes) - Read a pushbutton and 8-bit DIP switch - Sense Voltage, Light, and Temperature - Make Music on a piezo element - Sense edges and gray levels - Optically isolate voltages - Fade LED with PWM - Control Motor Speed - And more...
Arduino Workshop- a Hand on Introduction with 65 Projects,
Author: William Pollock no Starch Press
The Arduino is a cheap, flexible, open source microcontroller platform designed to make it easy for hobbyists to use electronics in homemade projects. With an almost world around you. countless ways to create devices that interact with the unlimited range of input and output add-ons, sensors, indicators, displays, motors, and more, the Arduino offers you In Arduino Workshop, you’ll learn how these add-ons You’ll also learn to build Arduino toys and games like: • An electronic version of the classic six-sided die • A binary quiz game that challenges your number conversion skills • A motorized remote control tank with collision detection to keep it from crashing Arduino Workshop will teach you the tricks and design principles of a master craftsman. Whatever your skill level, you’ll have fun as you learn to harness the power of the Arduino for your own DIY projects. reviews for years. Arduino Workshop is his first book. A BOU T THE AU THOR John Boxall (http://www.tronixstuff.com/ ) has been writing Arduino tutorials, projects, and kit and accessory • A handy tester that lets you check the voltage of any single-cell battery • A keypad-controlled lock that requires a secret code to open but quickly move on to coverage of various electronic You’ll start off with an overview of the Arduino system components and concepts. Hands-on projects throughout work and how to integrate them into your own projects. the book reinforce what you’ve learned and show you how to apply that knowledge. As your understanding grows, the projects increase in complexity and sophistication. Among the book’s 65 projects are useful devices like: on an LCD • A digital thermometer that charts temperature changes • A GPS logger that records data from your travels, which can be displayed on Google Maps Acknowledgments First of all, a huge thank you to the Arduino team: Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, Gianluca Martino, and David Mellis. Without your vision, thought, and hard work, none of this would have been possible. Many thanks to my technical reviewer Marc Alexander for his contributions, expertise, suggestions, support, thoughts, and long conversations, and for having the tenacity to follow through with such a large project. I also want to thank the following organizations for their images and encouragement: adafruit industries, Agilent Technologies, Gravitech, Freetronics, Oomlout, Seeed Studio, Sharp Corporation, and SparkFun. Furthermore, a big thanks to Freetronics for the use of their excellent hardware products. And thank you to all those who have contributed their time making Arduino libraries, which makes life much easier for everyone. Kudos and thanks to the Fritzing team for their wonderful open source circuit schematic design tool, which I’ve used throughout this book. xx Acknowledgments And a thank you to the following people (in no particular order) from whom I’ve received encouragement, inspiration and support: Iraphne Childs, Limor Fried, Jonathan Oxer, Philip Lindsay, Nicole Kilah, Ken Shirriff, Nathan Kennedy, David Jones, and Nathan Seidle. Finally, thank you to everyone at No Starch Press, including Sondra Silverhawk for suggesting the book; Serena Yang for her dedicated editing, endless patience, and suggestions; and Bill Pollock for his support and guidance and for convincing me that sometimes there is a better way to explain something.
