Create your own Arduino-based designs, gain in-depth knowledge of the architecture of Arduino, and learn the user-friendly Arduino language all in the context of practical projects that you can build yourself at home. Get hands-on experience using a variety of projects and recipes for everything from home automation to test equipment.
Practical Arduino: Cool Projects for Open Source Hardware demonstrates a variety of Arduino techniques in a practical context, giving you an opportunity to learn how the theory and reference material applies to real-world projects.
This book provides more than just a simple series of steps to follow - it tells you why the circuit was designed that way in the first place. You won't just be a color-by-numbers painter; you'll learn to be a true hardware craftsman and artist, able to conceptualize, design, and assemble your own creations. Take these projects as inspiration and examples of applying a variety of handy techniques, and then adapt them to suit your own requirements.
A few of the projects you'll encounter:
