Arduino Cookbook (Oreilly Cookbooks) by Michael Margolis

By Michael Margolis

Create your personal toys, distant controllers, alarms, detectors, robots, and plenty of different tasks with the Arduino equipment. this straightforward microcontroller board we could artists and architects construct quite a few striking gadgets and prototypes that engage with the actual international. With this cookbook you could dive correct in and scan with greater than 100 information and methods, it doesn't matter what your ability point is. The recipes during this e-book offer suggestions for many universal difficulties and questions Arduino clients have, together with every thing from programming basics to operating with sensors, vehicles, lighting, and sound, or speaking over stressed out and instant networks. Youll locate the examples and recommendation you want to commence, extend, and increase your initiatives straight away. Get to understand the Arduino improvement setting comprehend the middle parts of the Arduino programming language Use universal output units for mild, movement, and sound have interaction with virtually any equipment that has a handheld remote control study strategies for dealing with time delays and time dimension Use basic how you can move electronic details from sensors to the Arduino equipment Create advanced initiatives that comprise shields and exterior modules Use and adjust latest Arduino libraries, and the way to create your individual

Embedded Systems Design, Second Edition

I are inclined to accept as true with those that have written a destructive overview in this ebook. i'd even absolve its contents - newcomers or no longer skilled designers can nonetheless get whatever out of it. readability and didactics appear to have no consistency in that fairly often phrases, strategies, and acronyms are given with no consideration, while different basic principles are repeated two times in the comparable web page (and extra embarassingly with the exact same phrases!

Implementing 802.11 with Microcontrollers

Instant networking is poised to have a big influence on communications, and the 802. eleven typical is to instant networking what Ethernet is to stressed out networking. There are already over 50 million units utilizing the dominant IEEE 802. eleven (essentially instant Ethernet) ordinary, with astronomical progress expected over the subsequent 10 years.

Software-Implemented Hardware Fault Tolerance

This booklet offers the speculation at the back of software-implemented fault tolerance, in addition to the sensible points had to placed it to paintings on actual examples. by means of comparing effectively the benefits and drawbacks of the already to be had techniques, the e-book offers a consultant to builders prepared to undertake software-implemented fault tolerance of their functions.

Sample text

Here is an example sketch that takes a parameter and returns a value. The parameter determines the LED on and off times (in milliseconds). 2 The LED flashes when the program starts and stops when a switch connected to pin 2 is pressed the program prints the number of times the LED flashes. 10 Structuring Your Code into Functional Blocks | 39 } // here when switchVal is no longer HIGH because the switch is pressed return result; // this value will be returned Discussion The code in this recipe’s Solution illustrates the three forms of function call that you will come across.

2). But perhaps you are using a device that does not have this built-in support (see Chapter 13) or you want to manipulate the number as a string in your sketch. The Arduino String class automatically converts numerical values when they are assigned to a String variable. You can combine (concatenate) numeric values at the end of a string using the concat function or the string + operator. The + operator is used with number types as well as strings, but it behaves differently with each. The following code results in number having a value of 13: int number = 12; number += 1; With a String, as shown here: String textNumber = 12 textNumber += 1; textNumber is the text string "121".

Println(" digits"); delay(1000); } Your buffer must be large enough to hold the maximum number of characters in the string. For 16-bit integers, that is seven characters (five digits, a possible minus sign, and a terminating 0 that always signifies the end of a string); 32-bit long integers need 12 character buffers (10 digits, the minus sign, and the terminating 0). No warning is given if you exceed the buffer size; this is a bug that can cause all kinds of strange symptoms, because the overflow will corrupt some other part of memory that may be used by your program.
