With Arduino, you can build any hardware project you can imagine. This open-source platform is designed to help total beginners explore electronics, and with its easy-to-learn programming language, you can collect data about the world around you to make something truly interactive. The Arduino Inventor's Guide opens with an electronics primer filled with essential background knowledge for your DIY journey. From there, you’ll learn your way around the Arduino through a classic hardware entry point—blinking LEDs. Over the course of the book, 11 hands-on projects will teach you how to: –Build a stop light with LEDs –Display the volume in a room on a warning dial –Design and build a desktop fan –Create a robot that draws with a motor and pens –Create a servo-controlled balance beam –Build your own playable mini piano –Make a drag race timer to race toy cars against your friends Each project focuses on a new set of skills, including breadboarding circuits; reading digital and analog inputs; reading magnetic, temperature, and other sensors; controlling servos and motors; and talking to your computer and the Web with an Arduino. At the end of every project, you’ll also find tips on how to use it and how to mod it with additional hardware or code. What are you waiting for? Start making, and learn the skills you need to own your technology! Uses the Arduino Uno board or SparkFun RedBoard

The book "Arduino with MIT App Inventor" is an introductory guide to understand how an Arduino works with a bluetooth module to connect with a smart phone and is operated with a mobile app created using MIT App Inventor Tool. The book gives you an introduction to installing the basic tools required, introduces the reader with the hardware as well as the software, different scopes of it and how one can create different applications out of it. The book presents 8 different tutorials to play with and understand the tool better, which starts from a beginner's level by talking about controlling simple LEDs with a mobile app, and slowly progresses by introducing new elements in the application, explaining data exchange with arduino and the smart phone via bluetooth, and finally the last tutorial that helps the user create a full android smart phone controlled robot. The user has to follow the instructions given in each tutoiral. Each tutorial explains a new part of the libraries present in MIT App Inventor and helps the reader to understand app building in more detail.

A cool guide to help kids develop robots and electronics About This Book Get clearly-written code with descriptions and comments that explain each code section The book comes with separate code files, one entire program at a time, as well as many diagrams and separate downloadable files that contain colored photos explaining steps in the book Kids can build multiple projects during the course of the book; by the end, they will have working projects of their own Who This Book Is For This book is for children aged 9 and up, and their parents, who may or may not have a technical background. This book is tailored around the central idea of introducing electronics as a fun and a curiosity-inducing exercise. This book can act as a bonding exercise between parent and child over a single weekend. What You Will Learn Write simple programs using variables, functions, loops, arrays, and libraries Set up the Arduino and understand its internal functioning Get to grips with connections in electronics and arrive at ways to connect various components yourself Delve into various sensors and their selection and build your own sensor Unravel the concept of resistors and capacitors along with understanding the physics of electronics Become an inventor through interactive exercises (such as making a friend happy with a proximity sensor, and giving "life" to a plant) In Detail The mission of this book is to integrate technology with the tools that children already use for crafts so that they feel that the technology is an extension of their playtime. We use coding, sensors, and micro-controllers integrated with art and craft supplies, origami, and Playdough. There are 10 fun-filled chapters that talk to children directly, and give clear instructions for non-technical parents too. We use Arduino as the controller of choice due to its easy availability and large community. By the end of the book, children will comfortably be able to set up their Arduino, read and understand code, manipulate code, and ultimately write their own code for projects. They will also be able to use basic sensors and know how components connect to each other. All the learning takes place with lots of colorful pictures and the circuits are neatly presented using wiring. Style and approach This book will show you the glamour of common and easily available sensors, so that kids and parents waste no time searching for parts. We provide simple yet fun projects with step-by-step instructions that make it easy to get hands-on.
