Sensing and actuating are common activities in an embedded control system. These involve external devices such as sensors and actuators. In this chapter, we learn several sensor and actuator devices on Arduino boards using a Sketch program and then they will be used by a .NET application.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Overview of sensing and actuating in Arduino

  • Exploring sensor and actuator devices

  • Creating an Arduino sensing app using .NET

  • Creating an Arduino actuating app using .NET
