This is kind of how a bat’s echolocation works. 19 The ultrasonic sensor sees by bouncing ultrasonic pulses off of nearby objects. Safety Rules In this book, you’ll be doing a lot of work in the shop, and this means using tools that could potentially hurt you. This section provides an overview of some basic shop safety rules that apply in most situations. Later chapters cover some more specific situations you’ll encounter and the safety rules that apply. 20 shows two of the most important pieces of safety gear you should own—ear and eye protection!

Cc/en/Main/Software. The web page provides instructions for installing the software. Also, be sure to read Chapter 5, “Programming Arduino,” for more instructions. Basics of the Arduino software. 6. Connect your Arduino to the computer via the USB cable, which will also power your project. Select File, Upload to send the Blink program to the Arduino. Voilà! You should have a blinking light on your breadboard. If it doesn’t work, try these troubleshooting steps: ■ Test your connections against the preceding instructions.

3. After the enclosures are set up, turn the key on the laser module to activate the beam. 4. Turn the key on the sensor module. The beam is now armed! CHAPTER 2: Breadboarding 50 You need to make two adjustments based on the ambient lighting in your room: ■ ■ If the alarm goes off too readily, you must change the threshold in the code. If the alarm doesn’t go off enough, try a different resistor on the breadboard; instead of a 10K, try a 5K. This gives the light sensor more range on the lower end.
