In Detail

Physical computing allows us to build interactive physical systems by using software & hardware in order to sense and respond to the real world. C Programming for Arduino will show you how to harness powerful capabilities like sensing, feedbacks, programming and even wiring and developing your own autonomous systems.

C Programming for Arduino contains everything you need to directly start wiring and coding your own electronic project. You'll learn C and how to code several types of firmware for your Arduino, and then move on to design small typical systems to understand how handling buttons, leds, LCD, network modules and much more.

After running through C/C++ for the Arduino, you'll learn how to control your software by using real buttons and distance sensors and even discover how you can use your Arduino with the Processing framework so that they work in unison. Advanced coverage includes using Wi-Fi networks and batteries to make your Arduino-based hardware more mobile and flexible without wires. If you want to learn how to build your own electronic devices with powerful open-source technology, then this book is for you.


Written as a practical Packt book brimming with engaging examples, C Programming for Arduino will help those new to the amazing open source electronic platform so that they can start developing some great projects from the very start.

Who this book is for

This book is great for people who want to learn how to design & build their own electronic devices. From interaction design art school students to the do-it-yourself hobbyist, or even simply people who want to learn electronics, this book will help by adding a new way to design autonomous but connected devices.

      Comments about oreilly C Programming for Arduino:

      I was looking for programming Arduino directly in C without using Arduino IDE, and in that hope I purchased this book. And what a great disappointment! The book is yet another basic Arduino programming book for beginners with focus on electronics and Max6 framework and using standard Arduino IDE.
      I should have stuck to a new project coming up on averfreaks that will have C library for Arduino (pure C Arduino library libpca).
      Giving 1 star just for the misleading title. So stay away from this title if you are looking for pure C programming for Arduino. But this book may be ok for electronics hobbyist wanting to use Arduino.
