C Programming for Arduino

By: Julien Bayle

Overview of this book

Physical computing allows us to build interactive physical systems by using software & hardware in order to sense and respond to the real world. C Programming for Arduino will show you how to harness powerful capabilities like sensing, feedbacks, programming and even wiring and developing your own autonomous systems. C Programming for Arduino contains everything you need to directly start wiring and coding your own electronic project. You'll learn C and how to code several types of firmware for your Arduino, and then move on to design small typical systems to understand how handling buttons, leds, LCD, network modules and much more. After running through C/C++ for the Arduino, you'll learn how to control your software by using real buttons and distance sensors and even discover how you can use your Arduino with the Processing framework so that they work in unison. Advanced coverage includes using Wi-Fi networks and batteries to make your Arduino-based hardware more mobile and flexible without wires. If you want to learn how to build your own electronic devices with powerful open-source technology, then this book is for you.

Bluetooth communications

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard. It provides a way to exchange data over short distances using short-wavelength radio transmissions in the band 2,400 to 2,480 MHz.

It allows to create PANs (Personal Area Networks) with the "correct" level of security. It is implemented on various types of devices such as computers, smartphones, sound systems that can read digital audio from a remote source, and so on.

Arduino BT board natively implements this technology. It is now supplied with ATmega328 and a Bluegiga WT11 Bluetooth module. The reference page is

In my opinion, the best way to proceed in many projects is to keep a general purpose board at the core of our designs and to add new features by adding only what we need as external modules. Following this, we are going to use the Arduino UNO R3 here with an external Bluetooth module.

We are going to make a small project using Processing again. You click somewhere...
