This book is an exploration of programming in Arduino. The first part of the book helps you get started with Arduino. You will learn what Arduino is, and for what purposes it is used. You are then guided on how to setup the Arduino software on your system. Steps for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux are given. Sketches, variables, and procedures are discussed, and thus you will know how to use these when programming your Arduino boards. You are guided on how to use the Serial Library and Binary Data in Arduino. You are also guided on how to setup buttons, switches, resistors, and get digital inputs in Arduino. You will also learn how to program these so that they can provide a number of functionalities. A number of Arduino projects are also explored in this book. The book also guides you on how to come up with a keyless door lock system. This is a system which will grant and deny access to users who need to open the door and gain entrance. The user will be required to enter the pin on a keyboard, and this will be compared to the keys stored in EEPROM. This will determine if the user is granted or denied access. You are also guided on how to control access by use of Arduino and RFID (Radio Frequency Identifier Device). In this case, we will not use the keyboard to type the pin, but we will be using the RFID.The following topics are examined in this book:-Getting Started with Arduino-Sketches, Variables, and Procedures-Serial Library and Binary Data-Buttons, Switches, Digital Inputs, and Resistors-Keyless Door Lock System in Arduino-Access Control with RFID and Arduino-Weighing Plate

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 ContentsChapter One – What is Arduino?Chapter Two – The Arduino KitbagChapter Three –ToolsChapter Four – Installing ArduinoChapter Five – ElectricityChapter Six – CircuitsChapter Seven – SketchesChapter Eight – ProgrammingChapter Nine – DebuggingChapter Ten – ProjectsChapter Eleven – Expanding with ShieldsChapter Twelve – Resources

Rather than yet another project-based workbook, Arduino: A Technical Reference is a reference and handbook that thoroughly describes the electrical and performance aspects of an Arduino board and its software.This book brings together in one place all the information you need to get something done with Arduino. It will save you from endless web searches and digging through translations of datasheets or notes in project-based texts to find the information that corresponds to your own particular setup and question.Reference features include pinout diagrams, a discussion of the AVR microcontrollers used with Arduino boards, a look under the hood at the firmware and run-time libraries that make the Arduino unique, and extensive coverage of the various shields and add-on sensors that can be used with an Arduino. One chapter is devoted to creating a new shield from scratch.The book wraps up with detailed descriptions of three different projects: a programmable signal generator, a "smart" thermostat, and a programmable launch sequencer for model rockets. Each project highlights one or more topics that can be applied to other applications.
