Arduino for Biologists

Ed Baker

Available from 4 June 2018. Technology has become crucial to biological science, from sensor networks to drones. These technologies are often expensive and difficult to modify, even if they do suit your specific needs. Arduino is a hugely popular, low-cost platform that allows you to create your own technological solutions to problems quickly and easily with little prior electronics or programming knowledge. The Arduino system comprises a development board containing a small micro-controller that can be reprogrammed via the Arduino desktop software and a USB cable. The system is easily expanded to add Internet connectivity, data recording tools and your own custom electronics. This book explains everything you need to know about Arduino and how to use it. It starts with an introduction to practical electronics and the Arduino platform, and moves on through a series of projects solving specific biological problems. Each of these projects can be used as described, or modified for your specific needs. In addition, information is provided on how to share and publish your own designs and integrate them with the global infrastructures that support biodiversity informatics. This book is for anybody who wants to design and build their own technology-based research equipment, whether it is for use in the laboratory or the field. It is of particular relevance to those who wish to develop their own sensor networks, whether they are professional ecologists or citizen scientists. 304 pages.
