Extend the range of your Arduino skills, incorporate the new developments in both hardware and software, and understand how the electronic applications function in everyday life. This project-based book extends the Arduino Uno starter kits and increases knowledge of microcontrollers in electronic applications. Learn how to build complex Arduino projects, break them down into smaller ones, and then enhance them, thereby broadening your understanding of each topic.You´ll use the Arduino Uno in a range of applications such as a blinking LED, route mapping with a mobile GPS system, and uploading information to the internet. You´ll also apply the Arduino Uno to sensors, collecting and displaying information, Bluetooth and wireless communications, digital image captures, route tracking with GPS, controlling motors, color and sound, building robots, and internet access. With Arduino Applied, prior knowledge of electronics is not required, as each topic is described and illustrated with examples using the Arduino Uno. What You´ll Learn Set up the Arduino Uno and its programming environment Understand the application of electronics in every day systems Build projects with a microcontroller and readily available electronic components Who This Book Is For Readers with an Arduino starter-kit and little-to-no programming experience and those interested in ´´how electronic appliances work.´´
Arduino is the hot open source prototyping platform for artists, hobbyists, students, and anyone who wants to create interactive physical environments. Getting Started with Arduino is co-authored by Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi, and incorporates his experience in teaching, using, and creating Arduino.
Create media-rich client applications using JavaFX 9 and the Java 9 platform. Learn to create GUI-based applications for mobile devices, desktop PCs, and even the web. Incorporate media such as audio and video into your applications. Interface with hardware devices such as Arduino and Leap Motion. Respond to gesture control through devices such as the Leap Motion Controller. Take advantage of the new HTTP2 API to make RESTful web requests and WebSockets calls. New to this edition are examples of creating stylized text and loading custom fonts, guidance for working with Scene Builder to create visual layouts, and new content on developing iOS and Android applications using Gluon mobile. The book also covers advanced topics such as custom controls, JavaFX 3D, gesture devices, printing, and animation. Best of all, the book is full of working code that you can adapt and extend to all your future projects. Is your goal to develop visually exciting applications in the Java language? Then this is the book you want at your side. JavaFX 9 by Example is chock-full of engaging, fun-to-work examples that bring you up to speed on the major facets of JavaFX 9. You´ll learn to create applications that look good, are fun to use, and that take advantage of the medium to present data of all types in ways that engage the user and lead to increased productivity. The book: Has been updated with new content on modular development, new APIs, and an example using the Scene Builder tool Is filled with fun and practical code examples that you can modify and drop into your own projects Includes an example using Arduino and an accelerometer sensor to track motion in 3D Helps you create JavaFX applications for iOS and Android devices What You´ll Learn Work with touch-based interfaces Interpret gesture-based events Use shapes, color, text, and UI controls to create a simple click and point game Add audio and video to your projects Utilize JavaFX 3D Create custom controls using CSS, SVG, and Canvas APIs Organize code into modules using Java Platform Module System (Project Jigsaw) Who This Book Is For Java developers developing visual and media-rich applications to run on PCs, phones, tablets, Arduino controllers, and more. This includes developers tasked with creating visualizations of data from statistical analysis and from sensor networks. Any developer wanting to develop a polished user-interface in Java will find much to like in this book.
Atmel´s AVR microcontrollers are the chips that power Arduino, and are the go-to chip for many hobbyist and hardware hacking projects. In this book you´ll set aside the layers of abstraction provided by the Arduino environment and learn how to program AVR microcontrollers directly. In doing so, you´ll get closer to the chip and you´ll be able to squeeze more power and features out of it. Each chapter of this book is centered around projects that incorporate that particular microcontroller topic. Each project includes schematics, code, and illustrations of a working project. * Program a range of AVR chips * Extend and re-use other people?s code and circuits * Interface with USB, I2C, and SPI peripheral devices * Learn to access the full range of power and speed of the microcontroller * Build projects including Cylon Eyes, a Square-Wave Organ, an AM Radio, a Passive Light-Sensor Alarm, Temperature Logger, and more * Understand what´s happening behind the scenes even when using the Arduino IDE
