Arduino + Android Projects for the Evil Genius: Control Arduino with Your Smartphone or Tablet

By Simon Monk


Filled with useful, selfmade contraptions, Arduino + Android initiatives for the Evil Genius indicates you ways to create Arduino units and regulate them with Android smartphones and drugs. Easy-to-find gear and parts are used for the entire tasks within the book.

This wickedly creative consultant covers the Android Open software improvement equipment (ADK) and USB interface and explains the right way to use them with the fundamental Arduino platform. tools of verbal exchange among Android and Arduino that do not require the ADK--including sound, Bluetooth, and WiFi/Ethernet also are mentioned. An Arduino ADK programming educational is helping you start correct away.

Arduino + Android initiatives for the Evil Genius:

  • Contains step by step directions and valuable illustrations
  • Provides counsel for customizing the initiatives
  • Covers the underlying ideas in the back of the tasks
  • Removes the disappointment factor--all required elements are indexed
  • Provides all resource code at the book's website

Build those and different devious devices:

  • Bluetooth robotic
  • Android Geiger counter
  • Android-controlled mild exhibit
  • TV distant
  • Temperature logger
  • Ultrasonic diversity finder
  • Home automation controller
  • Remote energy and lighting fixtures regulate
  • Smart thermostat
  • RFID door lock
  • Signaling flags
  • Delay timer

Should you turn the thermostat’s “override” swap, it stops utilizing the temperatures being despatched from the house automation controller and simply makes use of the temperature set at the regulate dial. development we have to construct the thermostat itself, yet we additionally have to regulate the house automation controller, delivering it with the RF transmitter and updating the software program on its Arduino. you must make the thermostat first, in order that we will use it to check that the alterations to the house automation controller have been profitable. except the microcontroller IC and some assisting elements, there's only a transistor, a relay, and a RF receiver module at the stripboard. We use a reclaimed 5V strength provide from a cell phone charger. if you happen to shouldn't have the sort of factor, then a standard “wall-wart” energy offer can be utilized. determine 9-3 exhibits the connection among the thermostat, the critical heating method, and the house automation controller. determine 9-3 the house automation controller and thermostat determine 9-4 exhibits the schematic diagram for the thermostat. determine 9-4 The schematic diagram for the thermostat warning This venture switches high-voltage household electrical energy and comprises enhancing the wiring for your domestic heating procedure. household loved ones electrical energy kills many folks every year and begins countless numbers of fires within the U. S. by myself. you want to in simple terms set up the program when you are certainly certified to take action and feature a superb knowing of the security implications of changing your home’s wiring. What you will want you'll want the subsequent parts within the elements Bin to make the thermostat. additionally, you will desire an Arduino Uno or Duemilanove to software the ATMega328 or ATMega168 chip. should you purchase this, ensure you get a model with the Arduino bootloader already put in on it. there are various 433-MHz RF modules in the marketplace, and so much have an identical simple-touse pinout. yet money the datasheets for the modules you ought to purchase opposed to determine 9-4 to ensure they've got an analogous pin connections. the alternative of relay relies on which state you reside in. it'll need to have a five or 6V coil. The contacts needs to be of the same specification to the thermostat you're exchanging. while you are unsure what the present and voltage requisites of the relay contacts are, seek advice a heating engineer. Please notice that the relay detailed was once appropriate for the author’s valuable heating approach. the writer has no method of understanding if this can be compatible on your personal heating method, so do the examine. The minions wade through cellphones like there’s no the next day. So there are continually surplus chargers within the lair, old relics of lengthy outdated telephones. after all, the Evil Genius loves to do his bit to save lots of the planet—just ahead of conquering it. To this finish, we'll reuse the sort of chargers to supply the 5V strength to the thermostat. should you do not need one, you'll have to purchase a 5V wall-wart variety energy offer. as well as those parts, additionally, you will desire the instruments indexed within the Toolbox.
