Arduino With Python: How to Get Started
On October 21, 2019 the article Arduino With Python: How to Get Started was published on Real Python. In the following, you’ll find the summary and the link to the article on the Real Python website.
Microcontrollers have been around for a long time, and they’re used in everything from complex machinery to common household appliances. However, working with them has traditionally been reserved for those with formal technical training, such as technicians and electrical engineers. The emergence of Arduino has made electronic application design much more accessible to all developers. In this tutorial, you’ll discover how to use Arduino with Python to develop your own electronic projects.
In this article, published on Real Python, you’ll cover the basics of Arduino with Python and learn how to:
- Set up electronic circuits
- Set up the Firmata protocol on Arduino
- Write basic applications for Arduino in Python
- Control analog and digital inputs and outputs
- Integrate Arduino sensors and switches with higher-level apps
- Trigger notifications on your PC and send emails using Arduino
The code is available on Github.
