Open your garage door with your smartphone, turn on your coffeemaker from Twitter, or even build a robot—these are just a few of the many ways people are using Arduino Uno, the open-source single-board microcontroller.
This course shows how to start programming interactive objects with the Arduino. If you're new to do-it-yourself computing, begin with the basics of electronic components and circuits in Chapter 1. Then tour the Arduino Uno unit and the IDE, as author Peggy Fisher demonstrates how to connect your computer with the Arduino and walks through loading and executing your first program. Learn about triggering LED lights and controlling actions with push buttons. Then put your knowledge to work in several sample projects, including a digital hourglass, a program that translates text into Morse code, and a light-driven music instrument—the theremin. Finally, find out how to extend the capabilities of the Arduino with attachable shields, or boards.
Hi. I'm Peggy Fisher and welcome to Up and Running with Arduino. In this course, I'll show you how the Arduino Uno works by exploring projects that are included with the Arduino software. We'll start by covering some basic information about electronic components and circuits. And we'll review some suggestions for different types of starter kits that make getting up and running with Arduino easy and affordable. Then I'll show you how to set up your computer to talk to the Arduino.
We'll explore projects that make lights flash and respond to buttons being pressed. We'll write code that translates text into morse code and even make a playable musical instrument. Then we will talk about the many different types of extension modules that can be added to the Arduino as a starting point for you to explore more on your own. The world of DIY, or do it yourself computing using open source and open hardware has many possibilities and it growing every day. So let's get up and running with Arduino.
