This tutorial features ten Arduino Projects for absolute beginners. The projects have been selected from the Arduino IDE built in examples, so no code needs to be downloaded – all programs can be loaded to the Arduino straight from the IDE.
Only a few basic electronic components are needed to build these projects. The projects are a great way of exploring some of the capabilities of Arduino.
Besides an Arduino Uno board, USB cable, wire links and a breadboard, you will need:
|1||1M ohm resistor (1 meg ohm) (brown - black - green)||1/4W, 5% or better||Resistor|
|1||10k resistor (brown - black - orange)|
|1||4k7 resistor (yellow - violet - red)|
|10||220 ohm resistors (red - red - brown)|
|1||100 ohm resistor (brown - black - brown)|
|10||LEDs (e.g. red or green 3mm or 5mm LEDs)||Semiconductor|
|1||LDR (Light Dependent Resistor)||Transducer|
|1||8 ohm loudspeaker|
|1||push button or toggle switch||Or just a wire link will do||Switch|
