Getting Started with Arduino

1.Installing Arduino IDE

When we get control board, we need to download Arduino IDE and driver firstly.

You could download Arduino IDE from the official website: https://www.arduino.cc/, click the SOFTWARE on the browse bar, click“DOWNLOADS” to enter download page, as shown below:

You can download either Windows win7 and newer or Windows ZIP file.

The first one doesn’t require.

There are two versions of IDE for WINDOWS system, you can choose from the Installer (.exe) and the Zip packages. We suggest you use the first one that installs directly everything you need to use the Arduino Software (IDE), including the drivers.

With the Zip package you need to install the drivers manually. The Zip file is also useful if you want to create a portable installation.

You just need to click JUST DOWNLOAD.

2.Installing Driver

Windows 10:

The driver will be automatically installed if you plug control board to your computer. Then the COM port is show below:


You need to install it manually if your computer is other Windows system. We will take win7 system as example.

Right-click and click Open file location to find out the drivers folder.

Copy driver folder to D drive.

Right click Computer—– Properties—– Device Manager. You will view Unknown Device

Click Unknown devices to select Update Device Management


Find the“drivers”file,and tap“Next”.


Click“install this driver software anyway”

Then click“Close”and check the serial port.

Return to Device Manager page if the driver is installed. Then check correct port

(3) Arduino IDE Setting

Clickicon,and open Arduino IDE.

To avoid the errors when uploading the program to the board, you need to select the correct Arduino board that matches the board connected to your computer.

Then come back to the Arduino software, you should click Tools→Board, select the board. (as shown below)

Then select the correct COM port (you can see the corresponding COM port after the driver is successfully installed).

Before uploading the program to the board, let’s demonstrate the function of each symbol in the Arduino IDE toolbar.

A- Used to verify whether there is any compiling mistakes or not.

B- Used to upload the sketch to your Arduino board.

C- Used to create shortcut window of a new sketch.

D- Used to directly open an example sketch.

E- Used to save the sketch.

F- Used to send the serial data received from board to the serial monitor.

(4) Start your first program

We’ve known how to download and install the driver of development board , next, we will burn a code to show“Hello World!”in the monitor.

void setup() {

// initialize serial communication at 9600 bits per second:



void loop() {

// print out "Hello world!"

Serial.println("Hello world!");

delay(1000);// delay 1 second


Then let’s make monitor show Hello World!

Open Arduino IDE, and select Arduino UNO

Set COM port, as shown below:

Clickto start compiling the program, and check errors.

Clickto upload the program, upload successfully.

Upload the program successfully, open serial monitor and set baud rate to 9600. Monitor will print“Hello World!”each 1s.

Congratulation, you finish the first program.


The whole project begins with basic program. Starting from simple to complex, the lessons will guide you to assemble smart motorhome and absorb the knowledge of electronic and machinery step by step.

Note: (G), marked on each sensor and module, is negative pole and connected to“G”,“-”or“GND”on the sensor shield or control board ; (V) is positive pole and interfaced with“V”,“VCC”,“+”or“5V”on the sensor shield or control board.

Project 2: Adjust LED Brightness


In previous lesson, we control LED on and off and make it blink.

In this project, we will control LED brightness through PWM to simulate breathing effect. Similarly, you can change the step length and delay time in the code so as to demonstrate different breathing effect.

PWM is a means of controlling the analog output via digital means. Digital control is used to generate square waves with different duty cycles (a signal that constantly switches between high and low levels) to control the analog output. In general, the input voltage of port are 0V and 5V. What if the 3V is required? Or what if switch among 1V, 3V and 3.5V? We can’t change resistor constantly. For this situation, we need to control by PWM.


For the Arduino digital port voltage output, there are only LOW and HIGH, which correspond to the voltage output of 0V and 5V. You can define LOW as 0 and HIGH as 1, and let the Arduino output five hundred 0 or 1 signals within 1 second.

If output five hundred 1, that is 5V; if all of which is 1, that is 0V. If output 010101010101 in this way then the output port is 2.5V, which is like showing movie. The movie we watch are not completely continuous. It actually outputs 25 pictures per second. In this case, the human can’t tell it, neither does PWM. If want different voltage, need to control the ratio of 0 and 1. The more 0,1 signals output per unit time, the more accurately control.

3.Wiring Diagram:

The wiring diagram is as same as the project 1


4.Test Code:

5.Test Result:

Upload test code successfully, LED gradually becomes brighter then darker, like human breath.

6.Code Explanation:

When we need to repeat some statements, we could use FOR statement.

FOR statement format is shown below:


FOR cyclic sequence:

Round 1:1 → 2 → 3 → 4

Round 2:2 → 3 → 4

Until number 2 is not established, “for”loop is over. After knowing this order, go back to code:

for (int value = 0; value < 255; value=value+1){


for (int value = 255; value >0; value=value-1){


The two“for”statements make value increase from 0 to 255, then reduce from 255 to 0, then increase to 255,….infinitely loop.

There is a new function in the following —– analogWrite()

We know that digital port only has two state of 0 and 1. So how to send an analog value to a digital value? Here,this function is needed. Let’s observe the Arduino board and find 6 pins marked“~”which can output PWM signals.

Function format as follows:


analogWrite() is used to write an analog value from 0~255 for PWM port, so the value is in the range of 0~255. Attention that you only write the digital pins with PWM function, such as pin 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11.

PWM is a technology to obtain analog quantity through digital method. Digital control forms a square wave, and the square wave signal only has two states of turning on and off (that is, high or low levels). By controlling the ratio of the duration of turning on and off, a voltage varying from 0 to 5V can be simulated. The time turning on(academically referred to as high level) is called pulse width, so PWM is also called pulse width modulation.

Through the following five square waves, let’s acknowledge more about PWM.


In the above figure, the green line represents a period, and value of analogWrite() corresponds to a percentage which is called Duty Cycle as well.

Duty cycle implies that high-level duration is divided by low-level duration in a cycle. From top to bottom, the duty cycle of first square wave is 0% and its corresponding value is 0. The LED brightness is lowest, that is, turn off. The more time high level lasts, the brighter the LED. Therefore, the last duty cycle is 100%, which correspond to 255, LED is brightest. 25% means darker.

PWM mostly is used for adjusting the LED brightness or rotation speed of motor.

It plays vital role in controlling smart robot car. I believe that you can’t wait to enter next project.

7.Extension Practice:

Let’s observe the status of LED if we change the delay value

Upload code to development board, the LED’s blink frequency is slower, isn’t it?

Project 8 HX711 Weighing Module & YZC-131 Weighing Sensor


In terms of principles, the electronic scale calculates how much magnitude of the force is when metal is under stress, and foil gauge is commonly used to measured shape changes of metal.

HX711 is a 24-bit A/D converter chip designed for high precision weighing sensor.

Compared with other type chips, it integrates stabilized voltage supply, clock oscillator as well as the peripheral circuit, and features high integration, quick response and anti-interference.

It reduces the overall cost of electronic scale but improve the performance and reliability.

As simple as the MCU chip, its control signals are controlled by pins and it seldom programs the inner register of chip. Also,connected to the programmable amplifier,the input selective switch is either channel A or channel B.

The programmable gain of channel A is 128 or 64 and its corresponding differential input signals are ±20mV or ±40mV.

However, used to system parameter detection, programmable gain of channel B is 32.

The stabilized voltage supply provided by chip can supply power for external sensor and A/D converter inside chip, thus, there is no need the analog power on the board.

In addition, the clock oscillator doesn’t need any external parts.


(1)5kg sensor full-scale output voltage= VDC*sensitivity 1.0mv/v,for example:power supply 5v multiplies sensitivity 1.0mv/v to get full- scale 5mv. That means 5Kg gravity produces 5mV.

(2)711 module takes samples for produced 5mV

The pin A of 711 module has 128 times amplification coefficient which can make 5mV amplify 128 times and output the conversion value of 24bit AD. In addition. MCU can read the data of 24bit through sequential appointed.

(3)Working Voltage: DC 5V, high precision, low cost.
