C Programming for Arduino

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.

In this chapter, we talked about serial communication. This is a very common mode of communication both inside and between electronic devices. This chapter is also a nice introduction to other communication protocol in general, and I'm sure that you are now ready to understand more advanced features.

In the next chapter, we'll use some of the different types of serial protocol that were introduced here. In particular, we are going to talk about Arduino outputs; this means that not only will we be able to add feedback and reactions to our Arduino boards, considering behavior pattern designs such as stimulus and response for deterministic ways, but we will also see more chaotic behaviors such as those including constrained chance, for instance.
