So you've picked up a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino Uno and you're wondering what awesome project to work on first. If you're interesting in creating something that interacts with the physical world, you'll want to dive into the (sometimes confusing) world of sensors.
In Make: Sensors, you'll receive an introductory overview of how to use the abundance of sensors on the market to achieve your project goals. This book has been designed in the spirit of our popular Make: Electronics in mind, with a wealth of high resolution imagery and a friendly, understandable voice. Understanding how your sensors communicate to the physical world and back to your microcontroller is key to having a project be successful, and once you've got the basic tools, you can expand upon your range of sensors to improve upon your projects!
Get hands-on with your learning with unique experiments and have the workbench become your classroom with Make: Sensors. Soon, you'll be creating intruder detectors and monitoring the temperature with ease!
