Really excellent book! Many different examples of connecting Arduino and Raspberry Pi to lots of different devices; lights, motors, etc. Color photos of hook-ups, parts list and possible suppliers, programming for both computers. Clearly written.
This book can prove helpful whether you already have an Arduino or Raspberry Pi (or both!) or you are still trying to decide which one to get.The author notes: "One of the reasons this book explains how to connect electronics to both Arduino and Raspberry Pi is that some projects are better suited to a Raspberry Pi and some to an Arduino."He points out: "Although the Arduino and Raspberry Pi are both small, credit card-sized boards, they are actually quite different devices. "The Arduino is a very simple microcontroller board that does not run an operating system of any sort, whereas the Raspberry Pi is a tiny computer that runs Linux and also happens to be able to interface to external electronics"That being said, the book (well written and nicely illustrated) shows how to set up and wire up a number of electrical/electronic experiments using each board, and it includes Arduino "sketches" (programs), as well as the Linux code necessary to program a Raspberry Pi board. You learn how to monitor and control a number of devices, ranging from simple LEDs to stepper motors. And, among other experiments and projects, you are shown how to connect an Arduino to an audio amplifier for louder output and how to run sound files on a Raspberry Pi.The author emphasizes that the two boards have some similarities but also are quite different, overall. The Raspberry Pi costs more and runs on a lower voltage (3.3vdc) than the 5vdc Arduino. Still, they "both are great devices to base a project on, and to some extent, the choice of which device to use will also be a matter of personal preference." And the marketplace has created a number of boards that offer some of the features of both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi. If you have one of those boards, the author says, this book may provide you with useful information, as well.(My thanks to O'Reilly Media for providing a review copy.)
Great basics for control systems with lots of fun.
Lots of good info for the uninitiated like myself. Nice big format, well organized. Keep making these books, Simon.
