For Arduino programmers who’ve mastered the basics, this book is the next step toward becoming an expert Arduinian. You’ll build 70 complex and practical projects with this versatile microcontroller platform and gain advanced skills to design reliable, professional, user-friendly creations.

You’ll remote-control your Arduino via Bluetooth and instant messaging, improve the accuracy of clock projects with internet time servers, and automatically turn your Arduino off when it completes a task. You’ll safely control AC mains power and higher currents and conserve battery with low-power and sleep modes. You’ll also use Charlieplexing to control LED matrix displays, keep your Arduino running with a watchdog timer, communicate over longer wired distances with the RS232 and RS485 buses, and much more.

Along the way, you’ll build fun and useful devices like:

  • A camera-enabled circuit to stream videos
  • An MP3 player to listen to audio of your choice
  • A CAN bus circuit to gather speed and engine data from your car
  • A web server to display data captured with an ESP32 board
  • A PS/2 keyboard to improve your user interfaces and easily enter and display data
  • Guided by an Arduino master, you’ll harness dozens of sensors, motors, displays, and techniques to bring your own expert inventions to life.

Arduino board not included

Requirements

Arduino Uno and other Arduino-compatible microcontrollers and USBasp programmers. Some projects may require other inexpensive parts.

Reviews

"I highly recommend this rich, detailed, and extensive treatment of Arduino makery."
 - Greg Laden, Greg Laden's Blog

"Another tome worthy of the Gadget Master library . . ."
 - Alun Williams, ElectronicsWeekly.com

"Comprehensive, exceptionally well-written, and thoroughly 'user friendly' in organization and presentation, [this book] is a significant and unreservedly recommended pick for personal, professional, community, and college/university library Computer Science & Software collections and supplemental curriculum studies lists."
 - Wisconsin Bookwatch

"If you have some experience with Arduino but would not consider yourself an advanced Arduino programmer, this book is worth reading."
 - Nicholas Vinen, Silicon Chip
