adk

Book Description


Whether you're new to Arduino and Android development, or you've tinkered a bit with either one, this is the book for you. Android has always been a natural fit with Arduino projects, but now that Google has released the Android Open Accessory Development Kit (the Android ADK), combining Android with Arduino to create custom gadgets has become even easier.
Beginning Android ADK with Arduino shows how the ADK works and how it can be used with a variety of Arduino boards to create a variety of fun projects that showcase the abilities of the ADK.


What you’ll learn


- How different boards work with the ADK
- How to create your first sketch and project
- How to work with light and sound
- How to work with servos and DC motors
- How to work with photoresistors and thermistors to sense the environment
- How to make your own capacitive touch game show buzzer
- How to create your own camera-enabled alarm system
