The Arduino is an affordable, flexible, open source microcontroller platform designed to make it easy for the novice to use electronics in hobby projects. With a vast range of input and output add-ons, sensors, indicators, displays, motors, and more, the Arduino offers you countless ways to create devices that work with the world around you.
Arduino Workshop, will show how these add-ons work and how to combine them into your own designs. Starting off with an overview of the Arduino system you quickly move on to coverage of various electronic components and concepts. Practical projects throughout the book back-up what you've learned and show you how to utilise that knowledge. As your knowledge grows, the projects increase in complexity and sophistication.
Among the book's 65 projects are handy devices like:
A digital thermometer that charts temperature changes on an LCD
A GPS logger that records data from your travels, which can be displayed on Google Maps
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
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.
