This wickedly inventive guide shows you how to program and build a variety of projects with the Arduino microcontroller development system. Covering Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, this book gets you up to speed with the simplified C programming you need to know. No prior programming experience necessary.
Using easy-to-find components and equipment, this do-it-yourself book explains how to attach an Arduino board to your computer, program it, and connect electronics to it to create fiendishly fun projects.
Written for new makers, Make: Basic Arduino Projects is a practical guide containing 26 projects. Learn to build electronic circuits that change their behavior, a light-sensitive switch, and LED projects. You’ll learn how to control servomotors and to create audio projects such as a theremin, electronic cricket, and metronome. The only restriction is your imagination.
littleBits are electronic building blocks with more than 60 modules and trillions of combinations. This book teaches you just enough electronics to start making things with littleBits and takes you through connecting littleBits to the cloud and programming with its Arduino-compatible module.
If you incorporate Arduino or Raspberry Pi into your project, you can build much more sophisticated projects that can react in interesting ways and even connect to the Internet. This book teaches the basic electronic circuits to read and react to a sensor, how to use Arduino to develop sensor systems, and how to build sensor projects with the Linux-powered Raspberry Pi.
Written in language that non-engineers can understand, Make: Making Simple Robots helps beginners move beyond basic craft skills and materials to the latest products and tools being used by artists and inventors.
Each project includes step-by-step directions as well as clear diagrams and photographs. And every chapter offers suggestions for modifying and expanding the projects so that you can return to the projects again and again as your skill set grows.
Make: Sensors is the definitive introduction and guide to the sometimes tricky world of using sensors to monitor the physical world. With dozens of projects and experiments for you to build, this book shows you how to build sensor projects with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

The Arduino microprocessor specializes in making electronic projects more accessible to everyday people. This text focuses on using the Arduino for building and operating autonomous robots. Parts 1 and 2 lay a solid foundation for using the microprocessor with the Teachbot and making mechanical and electrical components. Part 3 shows the many possibilities with the building and running of robots that are musical, remote controlled, have 10 articulated segments to slither like a snake, and more.
