eBook Description:

Beginning Arduino Programming

Beginning Arduino Programming allows you to quickly and intuitively develop your programming skills through sketching in code. This clear introduction provides you with an understanding of the basic framework for developing Arduino code, including the structure, syntax, functions, and libraries needed to create future projects. You will also learn how to program your Arduino interface board to sense the physical world, to control light, movement, and sound, and to create objects with interesting behavior.

With Beginning Arduino Programming, you’ll get the knowledge you need to master the fundamental aspects of writing code on the Arduino platform, even if you have never before written code. It will have you ready to take the next step: to explore new project ideas, new kinds of hardware, contribute back to the open source community, and even take on more programming languages.

Arduino Robotics

This book will show you how to use your Arduino to control a variety of different robots, while providing step-by-step instructions on the entire robot building process. You’ll learn Arduino basics as well as the characteristics of different types of motors used in robotics. You also discover controller methods and failsafe methods, and learn how to apply them to your project. The book starts with basic robots and moves into more complex projects, including a GPS-enabled robot, a robotic lawn mower, a fighting bot, and even a DIY Segway-clone.

  • Introduction to the Arduino and other components needed for robotics
  • Learn how to build motor controllers
  • Build bots from simple line-following and bump-sensor bots to more complex robots that can mow your lawn, do battle, or even take you for a ride

Principles of Accounting

The philosophy of Libby 1e is that “Teaching Accounting in the context of business” and that no matter what the student background or where their future lies, this book will give them the foundation they need to be a successful business owner or manager. Principles of Accounting is the first business course for nearly all of these students. Libby 1e is written by recognizing that students in the principles of accounting course have no previous exposure to accounting and financial statements and often little exposure to the business world but many of them have ambitions to own a business. Libby 1e slows down the approach to teaching transaction analysis, slowly building each layer of detail related to the financial statements and the accounting equation, as students work through the book. They learn the role of accounting from starting a business to operating it successfully.
