This is a book designed for Arduino enthusiasts who've mastered the basics, conquered the soldering iron, and programmed a robot or two. Warren Andrews shows you how to keep your hardware hands busy with a variety of intermediate builds, both practical and just-for-fun. There are ten complex projects to advance your engineering and electronics know-how.
Each project begins with a list of required tools and components, followed by the instructions, full sketch, and circuit board templates for the build, as well as directions for building a permanent enclosure. The projects include the author's design notes to provide further inspiration.
