Arduino Projects with Tinkercad | Part 2: Design & program advanced Arduino-based electronics projects with Tinkercad
Attention:This book is the sequel to the book “Arduino Projects with Tinkercad” as well as to the beginner book “Arduino Step by Step”. This book is aimed at advanced Arduino users and therefore requires some basic knowledge. It is best to work through the two books mentioned above first before starting with this book.
In this book, we will create step by step some complex and awesome projects using the Arduino Uno microcontroller. We’ll use Autodesk’s foolproof and free online software Tinkercad to simulate and program the projects, just as we did in the preceding book. In Tinkercad, we will create – together and step by step – the schematic for each project, the programming using the block-based programming method, and will simulate how it works. In each of the projects we will use sensors, e.g. a force sensor, a tilt sensor, a soil moisture sensor or an ambient light sensor and other components. In addition, we will integrate actuators (servo motor, piezo …) that will perform a specific programmed action.
I am an engineer (M.Eng.) and I want to introduce you to the topics of electronics, Arduino and block-based programming with Tinkercad, application-oriented, enjoyable and easily explained using DIY projects. Therefore you will find in this book in the first two chapters a very short refresher about the Arduino and the program Tinkercad (about 5 pages). If you need a more detailed introduction, you should take a look at the previous books in this series. After that, five more complex projects follow, which we will realize step by step (components, schematic, wiring, programming).
No matter what age you are, whether you are still in school, whether you are already an adult, whether you are a student or a retiree, if you are interested in electronics, in the Arduino, or in Tinkercad, you are in the right place!
This book is for anyone who already has basic knowledge in the areas of: Arduino, Tinkercad and electronics. So this book is for advanced users.
