Overview

Create your own toys, remote controllers, alarms, detectors, robots, and many other projects with the Arduino device. This simple microcontroller board lets artists and designers build a variety of amazing objects and prototypes that interact with the physical world. With this cookbook you can dive right in and experiment with more than a hundred tips and techniques, no matter what your skill level is.

Updated for the Arduino 1.0 release, recipes in the second edition provide solutions for most common problems and questions Arduino users have, including everything from programming fundamentals to working with sensors, motors, lights, and sound, or communicating over wired and wireless networks. You'll find the examples and advice you need to begin, expand, and enhance your projects right away.

  • Get to know the Arduino development environment
  • Understand the core elements of the Arduino programming language
  • Use common output devices for light, motion, and sound
  • Interact with almost any device that has a remote control
  • Learn techniques for handling time delays and time measurement
  • Use simple ways to transfer digital information from sensors to the Arduino device
  • Create complex projects that incorporate shields and external modules
  • Use and modify existing Arduino libraries, and learn how to create your own

Michael Margolis is a technologist in the field of real time computing with expertise in developing and delivering hardware and software for interacting with the environment. He has over 30 years of experience in a wide range of relevant technologies, working with Sony, Microsoft, Lucent/Bell Labs, and most recently as Chief Technical Officer with Avaya.

There are items and figures that - up to this point - are better presented by a physical book. Content gets 5 stars. Readability of code on nook color gets 3 stars. If you have an arduino, this book is a must-have. I program microcontrollers for work and i still learned nice techniques from this book that simply hadn't occured to me.

...but I can't. The NOOK for Mac app is worse than a beta version. Quite frankly it would be an insult to gamma. Perhaps they should work their way back from omega. That would give me hope for the eventual beta .
