Make: Sensors is the definitive introduction and guide to the sometimes-tricky world of using sensors to monitor the physical world. With dozens of projects and experiments for you to build, this book shows you how to build sensor projects with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Use Arduino when you need a low-power, low-complexity brain for your sensor, and choose Raspberry Pi when you need to perform additional processing using the Linux operating system running on that device.You'll learn about touch sensors, light sensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetic sensors, as well as temperature, humidity, and gas sensors.

Sensors for Mechatronics, Second Edition, offers an overview of the sensors and sensor systems required and applied in mechatronics. Emphasis lies on the physical background of the operating principles that is illustrated with examples of commercially available sensors and recent developments. Chapters discuss the general aspects of sensors, with a special section on quantities, notations and relations. In addition, the book includes a section devoted to sensor errors and error minimization that apply to most of the sensors discussed. Each subsequent chapter deals with one class of sensors, pursuing a classification according to physical principles rather than measurands. Categories discussed include resistive, capacitive, inductive and magnetic, optical, piezoelectric and acoustic sensors. For each category of sensors, a number of applications is given. Where appropriate, a section is added on the interfacing of the sensor. Presents a fully revised, updated edition that focuses on industrial applications Provides comprehensive coverage of a wide variety of sensor concepts and basic measurement configurations Written by a recognized expert in the field with extensive experience in industry and teaching Suitable for practicing engineers and those wanting to learn more about sensors in mechatronics

The Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive, simple computer that's about the size of a credit card. At first glance, it looks like a simple circuit board with a few inputs and outputs, but the Raspberry Pi is actually a computer with multiple inputs and outputs that make it the foundation for an almost limitless number of projects - from creating a wireless internet streaming radio, to creating a wi-fi hot spot, to creating elaborate, programmed LED light shows - it's all been done. The real power of the RPi is that it's simple, cheap, and users can build all kinds of useful and fun projects using a few simple tools, some basic programming, and a ton of imagination. Idiot's Guides: Raspberry Pi is the perfect beginner book for learning how the Raspberry Pi works, how to program it, how to connect it to existing devices to enhance or even hack their existing functionality, and how to put together some basic first projects from scratch. Readers will learn how to download and use the right software for the job, how to program using Scratch (a basic language for programming Linux), and how to come up with their own crazy project ideas for creating virtually anything that requires nothing more than processing power from a simple computer.

Gain experience of building a next-generation collaboration robot Key Features Get up and running with the fundamentals of robotic programming Program a robot using Python and the Raspberry Pi 3 Learn to build a smart robot with interactive and AI-enabled behaviors Book Description We live in an age where the most difficult human tasks are now automated. Smart and intelligent robots, which will perform different tasks precisely and efficiently, are the requirement of the hour. A combination of Raspberry Pi and Python works perfectly when making these kinds of robots. Learn Robotics Programming starts by introducing you to the basic structure of a robot, along with how to plan, build, and program it. As you make your way through the book, you will gradually progress to adding different outputs and sensors, learning new building skills, and writing code for interesting behaviors with sensors. You’ll also be able to update your robot, and set up web, phone, and Wi-Fi connectivity in order to control it. By the end of the book, you will have built a clever robot that can perform basic artificial intelligence (AI) operations. What you will learn Configure a Raspberry Pi for use in a robot Interface motors and sensors with a Raspberry Pi Implement code to make interesting and intelligent robot behaviors Understand the first steps in AI behavior such as speech recognition visual processing Control AI robots using Wi-Fi Plan the budget for requirements of robots while choosing parts Who this book is for Learn Robotics Programming is for programmers, developers, and enthusiasts interested in robotics and developing a fully functional robot. No major experience required just some programming knowledge would be sufficient.
