Beginning Arduino Programming allows you to quickly and intuitively develop your programming skills through sketching in code. This clear introduction provides you with an understanding of the basic framework for developing Arduino code, including the structure, syntax, functions, and libraries needed to create future projects. You will also learn how to program your Arduino interface board to sense the physical world, to control light, movement, and sound, and to create objects with interesting behavior. With Beginning Arduino Programming, you'll get the knowledge you need to master the fundamental aspects of writing code on the Arduino platform, even if you have never before written code. It will have you ready to take the next step: to explore new project ideas, new kinds of hardware, contribute back to the open source community, and even take on more programming languages. What you’ll learn Start programming quickly with Arduino sketches. Write code that interacts with devices, such as LEDs, sensors, and motors. Work with loops, functions, randomness, and delays in your Arduino projects. Develop a style of writing code that reflects your individuality. Use many of the Arduino libraries to control even more devices. Read from RFID readers, write data to SD memory cards, and connect to the Internet using Ethernet. Who this book is for This book is for all Arduino board users who want to learn to program the Arduino board, regardless of hardware version or which devices are connected to the board. You do not need to have programmed before, but if you have, then you'll learn how to apply core coding features in the Arduino context.

Arduino boards have impressed both hackers and professional engineers. Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional, it isn't just a breadboard and a hazy idea that keeps you going. It's essential to institute a proper design, device instrumentation and, indeed, test your project thoroughly before committing to a particular prototype. Practical Arduino Engineering begins by outlining the engineering process, from the basic requirements and preliminary design to prototyping and testing. Each and every chapter exemplifies this process and demonstrates how you can profit from the implementation solid engineering principles—regardless of whether you just play in your basement or you want to publicize and sell your devices. Arduino is a brilliant prototyping platform that allows users to test and iterate design ideas. Imitation by other Arduino makers, hackers and engineers often proves your design's popularity. Practical Arduino Engineering will teach you to follow the engineering process carefully; over time, you will be able to review and improve this process, and even extend its scope. Practical Arduino Engineering is not purely theoretical. In addition, you'll learn the process of hardware engineering as applicable to Arduino projects, and the importance of the process in each and every project presented in this book. To set the stage, Practical Arduino Engineering begins by reviewing the Arduino software landscape, then shows how to set up an Arduino project for testing. Even if you already know your compiler toolchain and the basics of Arduino programming, this refresher course can help fill in the gaps and explain why your compiler may spit out certain error messages. Practical Arduino Engineering then gradually builds up the engineering process, from single devices like LCDs, potentiometers and GPS modules, to the integration of several modules into larger projects, such as a wireless temperature measurement system, and ultimately an entire robot. The engineering projects become progressively more challenging throughout the first 4 engineering chapters. Next, you'll proceed with simple steps towards the first intelligent part of a robot: the object detector. You'll find yourself teaching your robot how to avoid very hot objects or insurmountable obstacles. The basic design requirements for a complete robot and, indeed, the detailed design and prototyping for robots can be extremely tricky, which is why engineering discipline is invaluable. Practical Arduino Engineering then enters the world of domestic engineering by introducing home alarm systems—not quite as simple as they seem. A solid, robust system can only be built by following the engineering process detailed in previous chapters, and this section reinforces that process. You'll then take a step further in your Arduino engineering process: instrumentation and control, and some error messaging using GSM. Control is introduced via the Xbox controller, a very powerful piece of technology able to play a considerable role in robotics projects. Having already learned to control motion and to sense and avoid objects, you'll learn how to debug your Arduino projects of varying complexities via the hardware instrumentation software LabVIEW. To complete the journey into Practical Arduino Engineering, you'll discover how to use a special Arduino board to rely on Bluetooth Mate Silver for control of domestic and mobile Arduino projects. Using Bluetooth Mate Silver, you'll learn to implement basic engineering design with almost any Arduino project, and be able to justify, build, debug, and extend Arduino-based designs using a solid engineering approach. Please note: the print version of this title is black & white; the eBook is full color. What you’ll learn Practical engineering principles: from collecting requirements onwards To instrument Arduino hardware for debugging To build stationary Arduino home projects with varying degrees of complexity To construct Arduino-based robots and vary your design until an optimal solution is reached To add instrumentation software to the hardware design process How to move from being a good hacker to being a solid engineer Who this book is for This book is geared toward engineers and makers used to a rigorous approach to hardware hacking, Arduino hackers aiming to get to the next level, and Arduino hackers interested in instrumenting their projects using Arduino and other software.

在克里斯.安德森(Chris Anderson)所著『自造者時代:啟動人人製造的第三次工業革命』提到,過去幾年,世界來到了一個重要里程碑:實體製造的過程愈來愈像軟體設計,開放原始碼創造了軟體大量散佈與廣泛使用,如今,實體物品上也逐漸發生同樣的效應。網路社群中的程式設計師從Linux作業系統出發,架設了今日世界上絕大部分的網站(Apache WebServer),到使用端廣受歡迎的FireFox瀏覽器等,都是開放原始碼軟體的最佳案例。 現在自造者社群(Maker Space)也正藉由開放原始碼硬體,製造出電子產品、科學儀器、建築物,甚至是3C產品。其中如Arduino開發板,銷售量已遠超過當初設計者的預估。連網路巨擘Google Inc.也加入這場開放原始碼運動,推出開放原始碼電子零件,讓大家發明出來的硬體成品,也能與Android軟體連結、開發與應用。 目前全球各地目前有成千上萬個「自造空間」(makerspace)─光是上海就有上百個正在籌備中,多自造空間都是由在地社群所創辦。如聖馬特奧市(SanMateo)的自造者博覽會(Maker Faire),每年吸引數10萬名自造者前來朝聖,彼此觀摩學習。但不光是美國,全球各地還有許多自造者博覽會,台灣一年一度也於當地舉辦Maker Fair Taiwan,數十萬的自造者(Maker)參予了每年一度的盛會。 世界知名的歐萊禮(O'Reilly)公司,也於2005年發行的《Make》雜誌,專門出版自造者相關資訊,Autodesk, Inc.主導的Instructables - DIY How To Make Instruc-tions(,也集合了全球自造者分享的心得與經驗,舉凡食物、玩具、到3C產品的自製經驗,也分享於網站上,成為全球自造者最大、也最豐富的網站。 本系列『Maker系列』由此概念而生。面對越來越多的知識學子,也希望成為自造者(Make),追求創意與最新的技術潮流,筆著因應世界潮流與趨勢,思考著『如何透過逆向工程的技術與手法,將現有產品開發技術轉換為我的知識』的思維,如果我們可以駭入產品結構與設計思維,那麼了解產品的機構運作原理與方法就不是一件難事了。更進一步我們可以將原有產品改造、升級、創新,並可以將學習到的技術運用其他技術或新技術領域,透過這樣學習思維與方法,可以更快速的掌握研發與製造的核心技術,相信這樣的學習方式,會比起在已建構好的開發模組或學習套件中學習某個新技術或原理,來的更踏實的多。 本系列的書籍,因應自造者運動的世界潮流,希望讀者當一位自造者,將現有產品的產品透過逆向工程的手法,進而了解核心控制系統之軟硬體,再透過簡單易學的Arduino單晶片與C語言,重新開發出原有產品,進而改進、加強、創新其原有產品的架構。如此一來,因為學子們進行『重新開發產品』過程之中,可以很有把握的了解自己正在進行什麼,對於學習過程之中,透過實務需求導引著開發過程,可以讓學子們讓實務產出與邏輯化思考產生關連,如此可以一掃過去陰霾,更踏實的進行學習。 本書要以『Arduino 貓咪餵食碗控制器開發』來進行自造產品設計,主要是使用市售的貓咪餵食碗,透過逆向工程的技術,重新開發微電腦控制器,主要的目的是希望學子可以學到全自動化的基礎觀念與基礎能力。作者們的巧思,希望讀者可以了解與學習到作者寫書的初衷。
