ELECTRONICS and COMMUNICATIONS:


Many of the more powerful capabilities of Arduino-based systems require complex subsystems to provide high-order functions. Examples include:
  • Electronic sensor systems such as Magnetic Compass, Accelerometer, Gyroscope etc
  • Communications subsystems such as:
    • Wired Ethernet Interface
    • WiFi Interface
    • GPS Navigation subsystem
    • GPRS/GSM communications over Cellphone infrastructure
    • Bluetooth
    • Wired Serial Communications and RS485
    • UHF/VHF communications links
    • Infrared Remote controls and other IR communications
    • Wireless sensors

BUILDING ELECTRONIC SUBSYSTEMS:


In addition, many experienced Arduino users will build their own electronic subsystems and interfaces to use with Arduino. This section will soon include more basic electronics knowledge, and electronics components information and How-To. (Under Construction!)
