The book’s 65 projects include topics such as a digital thermometer that charts temperature changes on an LCD; as GPS logger that records data from your travels, which can be displayed on Google Maps; a tester that lets you check the voltage of any single-cell battery; and a keypad-controlled lock that requires a code to open.
This is an upgraded version of the original book, note. The publishers write:
“This second edition of Arduino Workshop has been updated for the latest version of Arduino IDE. It begins with an overview of the Arduino system and then moves on to coverage of various electronic components and concepts, including revised content reflecting advances in displays, touchscreens, sensors, motors, GPS, and wireless technology.”
“You’ll learn about new hardware and find updated projects that cover areas like touchscreens and LED displays, robotics, using sensors with wireless data links, and even controlling projects remotely through a cell phone. Brand new chapters include coverage of MAX7219-based LED numeric displays, LED matrix modules, and creating your own Arduino libraries.”
You can download a sample chapter from the No Starch Press website.
