ARDUINO for BEGINNERS

ESSENTIAL SKILLS EVERY MAKER NEEDS

Loaded with full-color step-by-step illustrations!

 

Absolutely no experience needed!

 

Learn Arduino from the ground up, hands-on, in full color!

 

Discover Arduino, join the DIY movement, and build an amazing spectrum of projects… limited only by your imagination!

 

No “geekitude” needed: This full-color guide assumes you know nothing about Arduino or programming with the Arduino IDE. John Baichtal is an expert on getting newcomers up to speed with DIY hardware. First, he guides you gently up the learning curve, teaching you all you need to know about Arduino boards, basic electronics, safety, tools, soldering, and a whole lot more. Then, you walk step-by-step through projects that reveal Arduino’s incredible potential for sensing and controlling the environment–projects that inspire you to create, invent, and build the future!

 

·         Use breadboards to quickly create circuits without soldering

·         Create a laser/infrared trip beam to protect your home from intruders

·         Use Bluetooth wireless connections and XBee to build doorbells and more

·         Write useful, reliable Arduino programs from scratch

·         Use Arduino’s ultrasonic, temperature, flex, and light sensors

·         Build projects that react to a changing environment

·         Create your own plant-watering robot

·         Control DC motors, servos, and stepper motors

·         Create projects that keep track of time

·         Safely control high-voltage circuits

·         Harvest useful parts from junk electronics

·         Build pro-quality enclosures that fit comfortably in your home

 

Synopsis:

Using Arduino, you can join the DIY movement and build an amazing spectrum of projects — limited only by your imagination! Until now, however, most Arduino books and manuals have demanded extensive “geekitude.” Not this one: it assumes you know nothing about Arduino or electronics, guides you gently up the learning curve, walks you through several real projects, and leaves you ready to do anything you want with Arduino.

 

This lush, 4-color guide is loaded with step-by-step photos that guide you every step of the way. Your guide, John Baichtal, founding member of legendary hackerspace Twin Cities Maker, is author of Hack This! 24 Incredible Hackerspace Projects from the DIY Movement: he’s one of the world’sleading experts in getting newcomers up-to-speed with hardware projects.

 

Baichtal’s Arduino for Beginners starts with an easy crash course in Arduino and electronics, and teaches all you need to know about safety, tools, soldering, and more. You’ll learn how to:

  • Detect intrusion with lasers and IR
  • Set up Arduino Bluetooth connections
  • Create useful Arduino programs from scratch
  • Use sensors and water controls
  • Conrol DC motors, servos, and stepper motors
  • Create projects that keep track of time
  • Safely control high-voltage circuits
  • Harvest useful parts from junk electronics, and more

Along the way, you won’t just walk through building several practical projects: you’ll learn how to construct professional enclosures, so your projects won’t just look like tangled wires and bare circuit boards – they’ll actually fit and function comfortably in your home!

About the Author

John Baichtal got his start writing blog posts for Wired’s legendary GeekDad blog as well as the DIYer’s bible MAKE Magazine. From there, he branched out into authoring books about toys, tools, robots, and hobby electronics. He is the co-author of The Cult of LEGO (No Starch) and author of Hack This: 24 Incredible Hackerspace Projects from the DIY Movement as well as Basic Robot Building with LEGO Mindstorm’s NXT 2.0 (both from Que). Most recently he wrote Make: LEGO and Arduino Projects for MAKE, collaborating with Adam Wolf and Matthew Beckler. He lives in Minneapolis, MN, with his wife and three children.
