Arduino Android Blueprints by Marco Schwartz

By Marco Schwartz

Get the easiest out of Arduino via interfacing it with Android to create enticing interactive projects

About This Book

  • Learn tips to interface with and keep an eye on Arduino utilizing Android devices
  • Discover how one can make the most of the mixed energy of Android and Arduino to your personal projects
  • Practical, step by step examples that will help you unharness the ability of Arduino with Android

Who This e-book Is For

This booklet is if you are looking to how to construct fascinating Arduino initiatives through interfacing it with Android. it is important to have a few uncomplicated adventure in electronics and programming. in spite of the fact that, you don't want to have any prior event with the Arduino or Android platforms.

What you are going to Learn

  • Build Arduino platforms that may be managed through wireless or Bluetooth Low Energy
  • Make a climate dimension station that may be monitored from Android
  • Build a wise strength swap that may be managed through wireless from Android
  • Monitor your house remotely with a instant defense camera
  • Control a servo motor with Bluetooth Low power utilizing your phone's gyroscope
  • Open or shut a door utilizing voice controls or NFC
  • Control a cellular robotic utilizing Bluetooth Low Energy

In Detail

Arduino is an open resource microcontroller outfitted on a single-circuit board that's in a position to receiving sensory enter from the surroundings and controlling interactive actual objects.

The first few initiatives of this booklet will specialize in showing tweets inside of your app through connecting to Twitter, controlling easy services of the Arduino board, and connecting an Arduino-powered climate station to an Android mobilephone through Bluetooth. subsequent, you'll how one can use the Arduino Yun board to attach a typical USB digital camera to a neighborhood wireless community. on the finish of the e-book, you'll construct an easy cellular robotic, attach it to an Arduino board and a Bluetooth module, then keep watch over the robotic from an Android telephone utilizing Bluetooth.

Each venture is defined in a step by step style, continually beginning with the alternative of parts and the meeting of the hardware.

Note that here we are converting these numbers into integers because it is the only variable type supported by the aREST library. However, as the resolution of the DHT11 sensor is limited, we are not losing any information here. com/marcoschwartz/arduino-androidblueprints It's now time to upload the sketch to your Arduino board. If you have any error when compiling, make sure that you installed all the required Arduino libraries for this chapter.

This is an image of the completely assembled project: Writing the Arduino sketch We will now write the Arduino sketch so that the Arduino board can talk with the BLE module and receive commands from Android via Bluetooth. set_name("my_arduino"); } aci_evt_opcode_t laststatus = ACI_EVT_DISCONNECTED; void loop() { // Tell the nRF8001 to do whatever it should be working on. getState(); // If the status changed.... = laststatus) { // print it out! handle(BTLEserial); } } Now, let's see the details of this sketch.

Com/marcoschwartz/ arduino-android-blueprints. It's now time to upload the sketch to your Arduino board. When this is done, you can move on to the development of the Android app to control the Arduino board via the BLE sketch. [ 41 ] Controlling an Arduino Board via Bluetooth How to create a simple Android app to connect to the BLE module Connecting the Adafruit BLE module will give us the opportunity to: • Learn how to work with existing open source projects • Analyze Java and understand how the Main activity connects to the layout files • Modify the code to light up an LED via Bluetooth and get it to work For this project, we will be using an open source project that works perfectly with our Adafruit Bluetooth module and is optimized for the Android Studio IDE.
