Arduino and LEGO Projects by Jon Lazar

By Jon Lazar

We know how notable LEGO is, and a growing number of individuals are learning what number striking stuff you can do with Arduino. In Arduino and LEGO tasks, Jon Lazar indicates you the way to mix of the best issues on the earth to make enjoyable instruments like a Magic Lantern RF reader, a sensor-enabled LEGO tune field, or even an Arduino-controlled LEGO teach set.

* examine that SNOT is basically cool (it capability Studs now not on Top)
* See certain motives and pictures of ways every thing matches together
* find out how Arduino matches into each one venture, together with code and explanations

Whether you need to provoke your pals, annoy the cat, or simply sit back and indulge in the awesomeness of your creations, Arduino and LEGO tasks indicates you simply what you wish and the way to place all of it jointly.

The plug can be seen in Figure 2-14. Figure 2-14. The power plug is given a hole in the back of the Android as the fourth layer is added Building the Body In Figures 2-15 to 2-18, the Android’s body is built up. The bricks continue to be alternated to build up strength in the walls as the Android grows taller. You lay more concentric rings atop each other, alternating the way they lie on top of each other in order to build a strong body that will be able to support itself. Figure 2-15. The fifth layer, above the plug, locks it into place 42 Chapter 2 ■ Using Sensors with the Android Figure 2-16.

The signal pin from the sensor is placed in pin 7 and the positive lead from the LED needs to be put in pin 10 on the Arduino. While the placement of the signal and LED pins is arbitrary among the numbered digital pins, these are the pins used in Listing 2-1, which is based on the sample open source code by David A. Mellis and Tom Igoe. Listing 2-1. begin(9600); // sets the LED pin to an output mode pinMode(led, OUTPUT); } void loop() { // establish variables for duration of the ping, // and the distance result in inches: long duration, inches; 29 Chapter 2 ■ Using Sensors with the Android // The PING))) is triggered by a HIGH pulse of 2 or more microseconds.

The Android’s body is made of concentric circles that rest atop each other, with a dome for the head. The arms and legs are made of smaller circular rings that are attached to the main body. Start with the Foundation Since the Android is round and LEGO bricks are not, you need to accommodate this by building into as round a shape as you can with the bricks. This is done by having a four stud side and having a two brick spacing to create a step pattern. You also have a brace four bricks wide running through the bottom of the Android to support the legs and the Arduino when you install them (Figure 2-8).
