Sensors surround us. Theworld is full of them: infrared sensors in motion detectors, carbon monoxidedetectors in homes—even tiny accelerometers, GPS modules, and cameras insideyour smartphone. Thanks to the proliferation of mobile devices, sensors are nowremarkably affordable, meaning you can combine inexpensive sensors andmicrocontroller boards to make your own devices.
This fully-illustrated,hands-on book teaches you to connect and read sensors through a series of shortprojects. You’ll learn to use the immensely popular Arduino and Raspberry Piboards to process data through simple programs you develop.
In Getting Started withSensors,you’ll write programs and build devices that respond to:
- Rotation with apotentiometer
- Distance withultrasound
- Proximity withinfrared
- Light and darkwith a photoresistor
- Temperature witha thermometer
- Relative humiditywith a humidity sensor
