Which Books will help with my project?

I am working on a project where I need to have arduino communicate with a smart phone wirelessly. By making both android and iphone Applications, I want to communicate to the arduino. What would be useful books for this kind of project?

  • Hi Eddie,

    I checked in with one of our editors, Shawn Wallace, and here's what he had to say:


    I think this would be an excellent topic for a short book; right now we don't have one title that addresses all of the steps to wirelessly communicate between Arduino and iOS and Android Apps. However, a few titles cover the ground together. There's two sides to the equation: integrating the hardware and firmware on the Arduino and writing the App that runs on the mobile device. On the Arduino side, we have:

    Arduino Cookbook (covers sending data over Bluetooth, Wifi, Xbee)
    Building Wireless Sensor Networks (covers data collection using Xbee)

    On the App side, we have iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino, which focuses on communicating with the Arduino via a wired connection to an iPhone dock. It does, however, have a short section on wireless communication, and the examples are a great starting point. This book would be my recommendation.

    We don't have an Android title out right now, but a book about the Android Development Kit will be coming out soon:

    Getting Started with the Arduino Mega ADK

    We have an Arduino+Node.js title on our wishlist that is exactly what is asked for; hopefully we can get that out next year.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn


    Please let us know if you have any more questions.

    Have a great day!

  • Hi Eddie,

    Editor Brian Jepson recommends one more book:

    Make: Arduino Bots and Gadgets

    This book has one project that explains how to communicate between Arduino and Android over Bluetooth.
