This series of lessons will teach you how to take your Arduino projects to the next level by having the Arduino interact with the Python programming language. Python is a free program you can download. Since you have already learned the fundamentals of programming through our first 20 Arduino lessons, learning Python will be a snap!
Python with Arduino LESSON 1: This lesson introduces the concepts and shows a cool project I did combining Arduino and Python.
Python with Arduino LESSON 2: This lesson shows you how to install the free software packages and libraries to allow Arduino and Python to work seamlessly together.
Python with Arduino LESSON 3: This lesson shows you how to create your own virtual world in Python with the Vpython library. You can then dynamically update your virtual world to match what is happening in the real world. Demonstration is based on measuring distances with the Arduino an an HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor.
Python with Arduino LESSON 4: This lesson shows you how to expand your virtual world by including both a distance and color sensor. This creates a scene where the distance to the target and the color of the target dynamically update to track what is happening in the real world.
Python with Arduino LESSON 5: This lesson shows you how to build your virtual world in Python using the vPython library and dynamically updating it based on data streaming from the Arduino.
