Packt has recently published a new book Mastering Arduino (http://www.packtpub.com/hardware-and-creative/mastering-arduino) by Jon Hoffman (September 2018)
The book begins with the basics of electronics, making sure that you understand components, circuits, and prototyping before moving on. It then performs the same function for code, getting you into the Arduino IDE and showing you how to connect the Arduino to a computer and run simple projects on your Arduino.
Once the basics are out of the way, the next 10 chapters of the book focus on small projects centered around particular components, such as LCD displays, stepper motors, or voice synthesizers. Each of these chapters will get you familiar with the technology involved, how to build with it, how to program it, and how it can be used in your own projects.What You Will Learn
- Explains the basics of electronics and circuits along with the Arduino IDE and basic C operations
- Use sensors to build a mini weather station
- Control LEDs using code
- Power a robot arm using stepper motors
- Remotely control your Arduino using RF, Bluetooth LE, and Bluetooth Classic
- Make a sound tone generator with buttons
