9780071824309: Programming and Customizing the Arduino

A hands-on, practical guide to programming and customizing Arduino, from software to generic and custom shields

Programming and Customizing the Arduino is your complete, one-stop solution to learning about Arduino and using it in a variety of applications. The book introduces a model-based approach to planning and implementing any project using Arduino. This approach equips you with a complete process for evaluating and fulfilling project requirements. This step-by-step tutorial features hands-on examples and real-world projects, including sensors that update their status on the "Internet of Things." Assuming no prior experience, the book moves from basic electronics through beginning-to-advanced programming. You’ll also learn how to use EagleCAD software for creating schematics and circuit board layouts, which is essential to creating and sharing open source hardware.

  • Includes a thorough overview of Arduino hardware design and architecture
  • Covers everything from basic digital input and output, sensors and actuators, and communication protocols, to complete project implementation
  • Introduces a unique model for project development consisting of 5 functional blocks that can be used to design any project
  • Features several experiments and 10+ hands-on projects with step-by-step instructions
  • All projects are extensively illustrated with photographs, diagrams, tables, and lists of materials
  • Shows how to create custom hardware shields and how to write extensions to Arduino commands
  • Explains how to use Arduino with an Android phone and the Raspberry Pi

About the Author:

Dhananjay V. Gadre completed his MSc (Electronic Science) from the University of Delhi and M.Engr. (Computer Engineering) from the University of Idaho. In his professional career of more than 23 years, he has taught at the SGTB Khalsa College, University of Delhi, worked as a Scientific Officer at the Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune, and, since 2001, he is an Associate Professor with the Electronics and Communication Engineering Division, Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT), New Delhi. Gadre is the coordinator of the Centre for Electronics Design and Technology and Director of the TI Centre for Embedded Product Design at NSIT. He is also associated with the global Fablab network and is faculty at the Fab Academy. Gadre is the author of several publications and five books which have been translated in Chinese, Greek, and Russian. He is a licensed radio amateur with a call sign VU2NOX and hopes to design and build an amateur radio satellite.

Rohit Dureja is a final-year undergraduate student of Instrumentation and Control Engineering at Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT), New Delhi. He has been associated with Prof. Gadre for over two years and has collaborated extensively on academic and professional projects. Dureja interned with Texas Instruments (TI) for over a year and designed evaluation kits and pedagogy material, which are now TI products. When not in class, he can be found tinkering with electronics at the Centre for Electronics Design and Technology, NSIT.
