  • Arduino for Developers Steve Robinson 23rd Dec 2013 @stev4nity | © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • What in the world is an Arduino? • Open Source Electronics Prototyping Platform • Just a Microcontroller (eg. ATMega328 in an Arduino Uno) and other components fabricated onto a single board allowing very simple interfacing and programming! © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • Agenda • • • • Intro Some history Sample demos Questions © Spritle Software Private Limited | View slide
  • Glance It © Spritle Software Private Limited | View slide
  • What can I do with it? • Do Physical Computing! – sense the physical world (light, temperature, pressure, etc) and do stuff with the data! • Build cool mechanical systems driven by code (like Robots, cars etc.) • You got the idea! © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • What makes an Arduino stand out? • • • • • Inexpensive Cross-platform Simple, clear programming environment  Open and extensible software Open and extensible hardware © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • Time to wakeup SAMPLE DEMOS © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • Lets get our hands dirty, shall we? • Arduino comes with a neat IDE that allows you to write, verify and upload code onto it. • Programs are written in Processing. – some code-ffee to keep you from sleeping.. – Make an LED blink (Req: Arduino, LED) – Make some music (Req: Arduino, Piezo Sounder) © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • Meet Johnny five! • Program the Arduino with NodeJS + Firmata • github: rwaldron/johnnyfive © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • More Samples • Setting Up Johnny-Five – Install Node: – $ npm install johnny-five • Setting up Firmata – Open Examples -> Firmata -> Standard Firmata in the Arduino IDE • Connect the Arduino and Upload! © Spritle Software Private Limited |
  • Some More Samples • Blinking (again!?) with Johnny-five – • Adjust computer display brightness based on ambient lighting (Req: Arduino, 10k Ohm resistor, photoresistor) – © Spritle Software Private Limited |
