Exploring Your Environment with Arduino Microcontrollers is a comprehensive guide to using Arduinos and sensors to measure, record, and display environmental data. The book is not an Arduino programming tutorial, but it starts with simple programming examples and leads to increasingly sophisticated projects for measuring important environmental parameters such as temperature, lght, solar and UV radiation, humidity, soil moisture, and atmospheric pressure. Several methods for displaying, saving, and transmitting data are described in detail. Sources are given for all the hardware required for projects described in the book. The book includes many complete code examples and the text for those examples are available online. Full color versions of many of the book's figures are also available online. The 8-1/2" X 11" spiral bound layout is ideal for use along with your Arduino hardware.
This book is ideal for learning hardware-centric programming, developing student environmental research projects, and as a text in STEM+C programs. It is suitable for use by students from middle school through college, and for self-study by professionals who wish to learn new programming and hardware skills.
