### Transcript

• 1. Making things senseUrban sensing and physical computing Day 2 (7-8 May 2011) Markus Rittenbruch QUT Urban Informatics / FAST & NICTA
• 2. Schedule - Day 2• 12:00 - 12:10 Introduction• 12:10 - 12:30 Analogue sensors• 12:30 - 13:00 Activity• 13:00 - 14:00 Sharing sensor data• 14:00 - 14:10 Short break• 14:10 - 16:10 Project activity• 16:10 - 16:50 Project presentations• 16:50 - 17:00 Wrap up
• 3. Making things sense - Day 2
• 4. Programming
• 5. ProgrammingData types When variables are made to exceed their maximum capacity they "roll over" back to their minimum capacity, note that this happens in both directions. int x x = -32,768; x = x - 1; // x now contains 32,767 - rolls over in neg. direction x = 32,767; x = x + 1; // x now contains -32,768 - rolls overFloat & casting:
• 6. ProgrammingFloat & casting: int x; int y; float z; x = 1; y = x / 2; // y now contains 0, ints cant hold fractions z = (float)x / 2.0; // z now contains .5 (you have to use 2.0, not 2)
• 7. Resources• Language reference: • http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/HomePage • http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Extended • General code library: • http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Libraries• Interfacing with hardware: • http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/InterfacingWithHardware• Examples • http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage
• 8. Analogue sensors
• 9. Analogue sensor pins• Use analogue in pins 0-5 for analogRead()• Address as 14-19 when used as digital pins • digitalWrite(), digitalRead()• No pinMode required for analogRead();
• 10. Analogue sensor input• File/Examples/Analog/AnalogInput
• 11. Analogue sensor input
• 14. Calibration - part 1
• 15. Calibration - part 2• map(): remap a number from one range to another • val = map(val, 0, 1023, 0, 255);• constrain(): constrain to a number range
• 16. Project activity 1 - Calibration
• 17. Components • RGB LED:
• 18. Components• LED matrix http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Components/LED/YSM-1288CR3G2C.pdf
• 19. Components • MAX7219 LED driverhttp://arduino.cc/playground/Main/MAX72XXHardwarehttp://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/LEDMatrix
• 20. Project activity II - Projects
• 21. So, you’ve got an Arduinoand now you want tomake it talk
• 22. Or, maybe you want totalk to it...
• 23. ...from the other side of the world
• 24. This session of the workshop willshow you some ways of doing that.
• 25. Arduino to the world• Arduino direct to Pachube via ethernet/wiﬁ shield• Or Arduino to PC via serial, then to Pachube/Twitter• We’re taking the second approach in this workshop, since the kits we provided don’t include ethernet/wiﬁ shields
• 26. Step 1: Register a feed on Pachube
• 27. Step 2: Write some code
• 28. Arduino Sketch
• 29. Ruby “Bridge”: setup
• 30. Ruby “Bridge”: the loop
• 31. Step 3: See your data on Pachube
• 32. Advanced topics• PCB design• Wireless communication • Xbee • Bluetooth • Wiﬁ • Infrared • Radio• Real-time communication• Multi-tasking
• 33. Resources• http://apiwiki.twitter.com/• http://community.pachube.com/api• http://community.pachube.com/tutorials• http://community.pachube.com/triggers/ twitter
• 34. What next?• Hackerspace Brisbane • http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Hackerspace_Brisbane• Living Dolls (The Edge) • http://edgeqld.org.au/blog/2011/04/07/living-dolls/
