Getting started with Arduino! – Chapter Zero. Hello world!
Updated 24/11/2012 Please join with us as we learn about electronics and the Arduino! Together through this series of tutorials I would like to share with you a journey of learning, exploration and fun with the Arduino system, and make some enjoyable, useful, interesting, useless and practical things. These posts will be published on a regular basis, on top of the other non-micro controller posts. Instead of listening to someone talking really quickly on a video, you can read and follow through at your own pace, see examples in action, learn a great deal – and be inspired to make something of your own.
So let’s get started… There are over fifty chapters in this series, however you should start here (chapter zero). Guilherme Martins : PAPERduino’s design. This is a fully functional version of the Arduino.
We eliminated the PCB and use paper and cardboard as support and the result is.. the PAPERduino :D This is the the first version of the layout design, next we will try more designs, and another materials. You just need to print the top and the bottom layout, and glue them to any kind of support you want. We hope that you start making your own boards. If you do, please share your photos with us, we would love to see them ;) There is no USB direct connection, so to program the paperduino you will need some kind of FTDI cable or adapter.

This is the start page for our series of over fifty Arduino tutorials.
Each tutorial from chapter zero to thirteen will cover a variety of topics and lessons, then from chapter fourteen each chapter will cover a particular topic. If you are looking to learn about the world of Arduino – this is a great place for beginners to start, or for more experienced users to brush up on their knowledge. Scroll down to read the contents of each chapter. New tutorials, lessons and other articles of interest are announced via twitter, Google+, RSS feed and by email – to keep up, subscribe using the form in the column to the right. If you’d rather have a great book on Arduino – check out my new book “Arduino Workshop” from No Starch Press. But what is it? Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.
Over semi-regular intervals you will find a new instalment of my tutorials. Chapter Zero – updated 24/11/2012 Chapter Two Chapter Four. Arduino. “Airduino” Scungy Anemometer Part 2: Digital Connections and Interrupts « Keith's Electronics Blog. In part 1 , I described making a propeller out of foil to measure the airflow of my air conditioning system, building an optointerruptor from an LED and a CdS photocell, and amplifying the signal to a usable level. Next, I needed to feed the signal into a digital input on the Arduino. Old-school digital inputs don’t like having analog signals fed into them; but I knew from working with a PIC that some of the Arduino/ATmega pins would probably have Schmitt-trigger inputs, which have hysteresis.
A digital input with hysteresis turns on when the analog input becomes higher than an upper threshold but doesn’t turn off until the signal falls below a lower threshold. The effect is that an analog signal wandering back and forth around the midpoint doesn’t cause lots of twitching back and forth of the digital interpretation. So imagine my delight to find that every ATmega8/168 input pin has Schmitt-triggering. External Interrupts So my program is exceedingly simple.
How Well Does It Work? “Airduino” Scungy Anemometer Part 1: Detection and Amplification « Keith's Electronics Blog. Necessity is said to be the mother of invention, and 90+°F daily temperatures with the air conditioner on the fritz made me feel pretty inventive. Our air conditioner was low on refrigerant and the blower fan motor may be running slower than spec and not moving enough air.
Between the two problems, the expansion coil inside the furnace housing would ice up, over a few hours completely blocking the airflow and preventing any meaningful heat exchange. I’d then have to switch off cooling mode and run only the fan for a few hours to melt the ice. On a weekend when I was home all day, I discovered that I could keep the house fairly cool by setting the blower fan to run all the time, manually monitoring the airflow out the vents, and cycling the AC off when airflow was restricted and back on when it opened up.
Which sounded like a perfect job for a microcontroller. Introducing the scungy anemometer, or Airduino v0.1, for short. Measuring Airflow. Windmeter / Anemometer by Infidigm. Overview The Windmeter is an anemometer designed to measure and record wind speed distribution from 0 to 17+ meters per second.
It was designed for high reliability, ease of construction, and for a wide environmental range. Data is logged over a period of 30.46 days (1/12 of a year), and then saved for 11 months. Home Page.

In conjunction with the release of the new version of the Arduino IDE and the Arduino Robot, we’re also putting out a TCT LCD screen.
The screen was developed in conjunction with Complubot and the library relies on the Adafruit GFX and ST7735 libraries. The screen lets you do all sorts of fun things, like play games or lose the serial monitor to see the values from sensors. The Arduino specific library, named TFT, extends the Adafruit libraries to support more Processing-like methods. You can write text, draw shapes, and show bitmap images on the screen in a way that should be familiar to users of Processing. Geiger Counter - Radiation Sensor Board for Arduino.
