Turn your iPhone or iPad into the hub of a distributed sensor network with the help of an Arduino microcontroller. With this concise guide, you’ll learn how to connect an external sensor to an iOS device and have them talk to each other through Arduino. You’ll also build an iOS application that will parse the sensor values it receives and plot the resulting measurements, all in real-time.
which is why we will use it with the Arduino in this book. What is the Arduino? The Arduino is a very
customizable microcontroller used by hobbyists and engineers alike. Also, it is open source, which
means that the source code is available to you for your programming needs; the integrated development
environment (IDE) (where you will be writing your software) is free, and most the resources you can find
are open source. The only thing you have to buy is the Arduino microcontroller itself.
Want to create devices that interact with the physical world? This cookbook is perfect for anyone who wants to experiment with the popular Arduino microcontroller and programming environment. You’ll find more than 200 tips and techniques for building a variety of objects and prototypes such as toys, detectors, robots, and interactive clothing that can sense and respond to touch, sound, position, heat, and light.
Build a robot that responds to electrical activity in your brain—it’s easy and fun. If you’re familiar with Arduino and have basic mechanical building skills, this book will show you how to construct a robot that plays sounds, blinks lights, and reacts to signals from an affordable electroencephalography (EEG) headband. Concentrate and the robot will move. Focus more and it will go faster. Let your mind wander and the robot will slow down.
You’ll find complete instructions for building a simple robot chassis with servos, wheels, sensors, LEDs, and a speaker.
Arduino Adventures: Escape from Gemini Station provides a fun introduction to the Arduino microcontroller by putting you (the reader) into the action of a science fiction adventure story. You'll find yourself following along as Cade and Elle explore Gemini Station—an orbiting museum dedicated to preserving and sharing technology throughout the centuries.
Trouble ensues. The station is evacuated, including Cade and Elle's class that was visiting the station on a field trip.
Beginning C for Arduino is written for those who have no prior experience with microcontrollers or programming but would like to experiment and learn both. This book introduces you to the C programming language, reinforcing each programming structure with a simple demonstration of how you can use C to control the Arduino family of microcontrollers. Author Jack Purdum uses an engaging style to teach good programming techniques using examples that have been honed during his 25 years of university teaching....
Android Open Accessory is a new, simple, and secure protocol for connecting any microcontroller-empowered device to an Android smartphone or tablet. This Wrox guide shows Android programmers how to use AOA with Arduino, the microcontroller platform, to control such systems as lighting, air conditioning, and entertainment systems from Android devices. Furthermore, it teaches the circuit-building skills needed to create games and practical products that also take advantage of Android technology.
Get started with MintDuino, the Maker Shed kit that's perfect for learning or teaching the fundamentals of how microcontrollers work. This hands-on book shows you how to build a complete MintDuino project from start to finish. Learn how to assemble the microcontroller on a breadboard (no soldering required), and immediately begin programming it.
You'll build the MintDuino Reflex Game in five separate stages or sub-tasks. Breaking down a large project into manageable tasks helps you track down errors quickly...
The long-awaited iOS 6 SDK (Software Development Kit) is finally out, and we need
to learn about all the great features that this release offers us. Apple did a great job
adding new features to the SDK and, of course, to iOS itself. iOS 6 is much more stable
than the previous versions of iOS, as you would expect. Things move very fast in Apple’s
world, and the iOS SDK is no exception. Obviously, picking up this book is an indication
that you are ready to start learning all there is to know about iOS 6 SDK, and
that is fantastic.
I’ve personally worked with companies of...
The most comprehensive book on the Arduino platform I have read. Loaded with excellent examples and references, Arduino: A Quick-Start Guide gets beginners up and running in no time and provides experienced developers with a wealth of inspiration for their own projects. Haroon Baig Creator of the Twitwee Clock, Excellently paced for those who have never experimented with electronics or microcontrollers before and packed with valuable tidbits even for advanced Arduino tinkerers.
My programming roots originated with Flash in 1999 when I first started writing object-oriented Games and
Applications in ActionScript. More recently, in 2009, shortly after Apple launched the App Store and
opened up their exciting new mobile platform to third parties, I decided to jump ship and become an
In editions of Rory’s previous book iPhone and iPad Apps for Absolute Beginners (Apress), there
were only two ways to teach the reader how to make an iOS app user interface. The first was to
write everything in code, and the other was to use Interface Builder to compose a Windows-based
app. But things have changed with Storyboarding … boy, have they!
Storyboarding first appeared with Xcode version 4.2. When we first saw the scenes that
made up an app, we thought Storyboard was fantastic. It was wonderful how Storyboard allowed
us to navigate a path through out app in a visual way.
THIS IS A BOOK OF PROJECTS. They are projects
designed to appeal to the Evil Genius in everyone,
whether those persons are new to home
construction or experienced project-makers.
Most projects require some knowledge of
electronics and the ability to solder. Two
projects—the trebuchet and the ping-pong ball
minigun—have nothing to do with electronics
whatsoever. A handful of the projects, like the
persistence-of-vision display, require the use of an
Arduino microcontroller module. Some of the
projects can be completed in an evening, while
others may take several weekends to finish....
1. Ứng dụng bản đồ mới Apple Maps Apple đã có một quyết định gây ngạc nhiên cho người dùng khi thông báo sẽ loại bỏ tính năng Google Maps và thay thế nó bằng ứng dụng bản đồ của riêng mình. Apple Maps bao gồm một loạt các tính năng hữu dụng như chỉ đường, thông tin tình trạng giao thông hiện tại và một công cụ xem toàn cảnh chi tiết các hình ảnh trên bản đồ.
In 2007, Apple revolutionized our way of living by introducing the iPhone, but most important
was the birth of iOS. Today, iOS is used in the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Via the App Store, a
new business model has emerged that offers more than 500,000 applications and games,
resulting in 25 billion downloads. This new business model is a huge opportunity for game
entrepreneurs and hobbyists as there are more than 100,000 games in the App Store.
GameSalad is on a mission to help you to be an active actor in this revolution.
Kernel development can be a daunting task and is very different from programming traditional user
applications. The kernel environment is more volatile and complex. Extraordinary care must be taken to
ensure that kernel code is free of bugs because any issue may have serious consequences to the stability,
security, and performance of the system. This book covers the fundamentals necessary to begin
programming in the kernel. We cover kernel development from a theoretical and practical point of view.
Learning Objectives: explain the general architecture of a microcontroller, list the key features of the ATmega328 microcontroller, explain the features and elements of the Arduino and Spartronics Experimenter Shield (SES), explain the concepts of microcontroller pins as inputs and outputs, convert between binary and hexadecimal digits.
