Arduino in easy steps is for anyone wanting to get started with Arduino - the popular circuit board that allows users to build a variety of circuits. For artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino is the first widespread Open Source Hardware platform. It was launched in 2005 to simplify the process of electronic prototyping and it enables everyday people with little or no technical background to build interactive products. The Arduino ecosystem is a combination of three different elements: A small electronic board manufactured in Italy that makes it easy and affordable to learn to program a microcontroller, a type of tiny computer found inside millions of everyday objects.A free software application used to program the board.An online community, connecting thousands of people with others to contribute and ask for help with projects. Arduino in easy steps begins with an explanation of what Arduino is, why it came into being and what can be done with it. We see what is required both in terms of hardware and software, plus the writing of code that makes it actually work. The Arduino environment has to be installed and set up on the user’s computer and Arduino in easy steps provides full instructions for doing this with all the operating systems – Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The book explains what tools are required to build Arduino projects and also runs through certain techniques, such as soldering, that will be needed. Arduino in easy steps then provides a primer in basic electricity and electronics, which will help the reader to understand how electronic circuits work and how to build them. This is followed by another primer, this time on how to write the code that will enable users to program their projects, plus how to debug that code. To illustrate how to use Arduino, there is a chapter detailing a number of typical projects. For each of these projects, the required components, the schematic diagram, and the code are provided. The book also takes a look at how to extend the basic Arduino board with the use of shields. These enable the user to construct larger and more complex projects. Finally, Arduino in easy steps details where the reader can get further information and help on Arduino, advice on how and where to buy Arduino and other required electronic parts, and where to find ready-made code that can be freely downloaded. Table of Contents Chapter One – What is Arduino? Chapter Two – The Arduino Kitbag Chapter Three –Tools Chapter Four – Installing Arduino Chapter Five – Electricity Chapter Six – Circuits Chapter Seven – Sketches Chapter Eight – Programming Chapter Nine – Debugging Chapter Ten – Projects Chapter Eleven – Expanding with Shields Chapter Twelve – Resources

Want to learn even more about Arduino ? * A Step-by-Step Guide to Arduino Programming # Arduino Arduino is a prototype platform (open-source) based on an easy-to-use hardware and software. It consists of a circuit board, which can be programed (referred to as a microcontroller) and a ready-made software called Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment), which is used to write and upload the computer code to the physical board. Arduino provides a standard form factor that breaks the functions of the micro-controller into a more accessible package. This tutorial is intended for enthusiastic students or hobbyists. With Arduino, one can get to know the basics of micro-controllers and sensors very quickly and can start building prototype with very little investment. This tutorial is intended to make you comfortable in getting started with Arduino and its various functions. Before you start proceeding with this tutorial, we assume that you are already familiar with the basics of C and C++. If you are not well aware of these concepts, then we will suggest you go through our short tutorials on C and C++. A basic understanding of microcontrollers and electronics is also expected. Good lucky!

It has been said that good things come in small packages. Such is the case with Arduino. Using the Arduino programming language, users operate microcontrollers, which are essentially mini-computers that trigger physical systems such as lights and motors. This book introduces readers to one of the most popular programming platforms, taking computing beyond the computer. The text covers the particulars of Arduino's hardware and software, its capabilities, pros and cons of the platform, and examples of the creativity its use engenders.

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.
