Heat, cold, humidity, smog, and even radiation. Solar, wind, and hydro. How can you measure these using inexpensive hardware? And how do you put that hardware together? In Arduino Projects for the Citizen Scientist, Steve Spence, citizen scientist and dedicated gadgeteer, explains it all. You'll learn how to use sensors to gather information about the environment and different types of energy, including logging and decision-making based on that information.
The Arduino is a low-cost, easy-to-program microcontroller perfectly suited for teaching and learning about electronics, programming, and sensing the world around us. Whether you are doing a science fair project or you're just interested in learning more about measuring air quality, weather data, and energy using Arduino and sensors, Arduino Science Fair Projects is the fun and practical book for you.
