Book Overview
Learn to easily build gadgets, gizmos, robots, and more using Arduino Written by Arduino expert Jeremy Blum, this unique book uses the popular Arduino microcontroller platform as an instrument to teach you about topics in electrical engineering, programming, and human-computer interaction. Whether you're a budding hobbyist or an engineer, you'll benefit from the perfectly paced lessons that walk you through useful, artistic, and educational exercises that gradually get more advanced. In addition to specific projects, the book shares best practices in programming and design that you can apply to your own projects. Code snippets and schematics will serve as a useful reference for future projects even after you've mastered all the topics in the book. Includes a number of projects that utilize different capabilities of the Arduino, while interfacing with external hardware Features chapters that build upon each other, tying in concepts from previous chapters to illustrate new ones Includes aspects that are accompanied by video tutorials and other multimedia content Covers electrical engineering and programming concepts, interfacing with the world through analog and digital sensors, communicating with a computer and other devices, and internet connectivity Explains how to combine smaller topics into more complex projects Shares downloadable materials and source code for everything covered in the book Projects compatible with many official Arduino boards including Arduino Uno; Arduino Leonardo; Arduino Mega 2560; Arduino Due; Arduino Nano; Arduino Mega ADK; LilyPad Arduino and may work with Arduino-compatible boards such as Freeduino and new third party certified boards such as the Intel Galileo Exploring Arduino takes you on an adventure and provides you with exclusive access to materials not found anywhere else
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Jeremy's easy-to-understand style and depth of content about the Arduino ... will not only allow digital beginners to get their footing but will also allow the old guard of hardware to dip a toe into the hobbyist-friendly end of the swimming pool and start connecting their devices. - Chris Gammell , Co-host of the Amp Hour Podcast ARDUINO CAN TAKE YOU ANYWHERE. THIS BOOK IS THE ROADMAP. Exploring Arduino shows how to use the world's most popular microcontroller to create cool, practical, artistic, and educational projects. Through lessons in electrical engineering, programming, and human computer interaction, this book walks you through specific, increasingly complex projects, all the while providing best practices that can apply to your own projects once you've mastered these. You'll acquire valuable skills - and have a whole lot of fun. - Explore the features of several commonly used Arduino boards - Use the Arduino to control very simple tasks or complex electronics - Learn principles of system design, programming, and electrical engineering - Discover code snippets, best practices, and system schematics you can apply to your original projects - Master skills you can use for engineering endeavors in other fields and with different platforms Find schematics, tutorial videos, code download, and more at the companion website: www.exploringarduino.com.
