Arduino Programming Lessons
Arduino is programmed with a mixture of C, C++ (see plus plus), and a large helping of Arduino specific code to make programming microcontrollers more accessible.
I hope you find the following lessons on programming Arduino helpful!
Transcript: Let’s say you’re building a project using Arduino and you have an event that you want to have happen every so often. Maybe every three minutes you want a servo motor to move or maybe every 20 seconds you want to update a web server with the most current sensor reading. How do…Read More
Video Transcript: Let’s say you’re making a project with Arduino. And you want some event to happen at a timed interval. Maybe every three seconds you want a servo to move, or maybe every minute you wanna send a status update to a web server. Whatever it may be, you want something to occur at…Read More
Have you heard of the Arduino millis() function? Did you know that it gives you access to the Arduino internal timer counter hardware which can be used for the timing of different events? We will discuss this and more in the video tutorial below. Topics in this lesson What is a hardware clock? Timer/Counter()…Read More
Are you using a switch statement that is triggered by input from the serial monitor window? For example, when you type a letter into the serial monitor, you want that letter to trigger a case in your switchcase() statement, but what you’re finding is that the switchcase() doesn’t seem to be working right? What’s going…Read More
In many cases while using an Arduino, you will want to see the data being generated by the Arduino. One common method of doing this is using the Serial.print() function from the Serial library to display information to your computer’s monitor.Read More
In many cases while using an Arduino, you will want to see the data being generated by the Arduino. One common method of doing this is using the Serial.print() function from the Serial library to display information to your computer’s monitor. In this week’s episode, we will talk about the intricacies of the Serial.print() function.…Read More
Do you need to make some noise with Arduino? Maybe a simple tone for an alarm, maybe a beep to alert you when a specific input threshold is met, or maybe to play the Super Mario Brothers soundtrack to entertain your juvenile mind (it’s OK, we are all there, too). Whatever your audible need, you…Read More
In this video we demonstrate how to create pseudo random numbers with Arduino – with a useful twist. This lesson was inspired by the following viewer question: How do I create Random Non-Consecutive numbers with Arduino? P.S. These are the best tutorials that a complete idiot like you could ever make, thanks. -ChrisRead More
If you ever have a project using two or more Arduinos, it’s likely you’ll want them to work together. Say for example you have one Arduino connected to an LCD shield, and another Arduino controlling an LED matrix. You want both to do something when you press a single button – how can this be done?…Read More
Do you have an application where you want multiple buttons for different user inputs? Maybe you have a timer and you want one button for minutes and another for hours. But there is a problem – you only have room for one button! In this tutorial, we are going to use Arduino to explore how…Read More
