Arduino Cookbook, written by Michael Margolis, provides users with comprehensive information to develop prototype devices that can interact with the external environment. A wide variety of devices from robots and toys to alarms have been explored using the Arduino programmes and microcontroller.
Summary Of The Book
Users of all categories, from novices to advanced levels, can gain immense help from the Arduino Cookbook. It details how one can design a variety of prototypes from robots, toys, remote controllers, and detectors. Over 200 techniques and tips are provided to help users in every way.
Arduino Cookbook provides several examples and advice to help users enhance their skills. Experience is not a prerequisite as this book explains every little detail. A wide variety of users such as designers, artists, students, engineers, and even those looking for an interesting hobby will benefit greatly from this second edition, which can help any user create simple to advanced prototypes that can interact with outside stimulus.
Arduino Cookbook features information on an array of topics like understanding the Arduino Essential Concepts, learning the Foundations for understanding digital and analog signals, implementing Arduino with a range of devices and sensors, Understanding Drive Visual Displays, Generating Sound and Controlling a variety of Motors, Using Remote Controls including TVs and other remote controlled devices, Applying Memory Handling and Coding Techniques and Handling Time Measurement and Time Delays.
Arduino Cookbook is divided into several sections for easy access. The first section is Getting Started, which covers topics right from installation of Integrated Development Environment to using Arduino. The next section is Making the Sketch Do Your Bidding, which starts with Structuring the Arduino Program and ends with Combining Operations and Assignments. The third section is Using Mathematical Operators, which covers a range of mathematical values. The next section is Serial Communications, which covers topics ranging from Sending Debug Information from Arduino to Your Computer and Setting Up Processing on Your Computer to Send and Receive Serial Data. Simple Digital and Analog Input is the fifth section, which covers Using a Switch to Measuring Voltages More Than 5V (Voltage Dividers).
Getting Input from Sensors covers all aspects of movement and measurement. Visual Output is the next section and it details LED Displays. The following sections cover every aspect from Physical Output to Remotely Controlling External Devices and how to use displays, Wireless Communication, Communicating Using I2C and SPI, Advanced Coding and Memory Handling, and Using the Controller Chip Hardware. The Appendices provide extra information on topics such as Diode, Keypad, Piezo, Solenoid, Using Schematic Diagrams and Data Sheets.
