The Arduino Infrared library

Before beginning with the examples, we must quickly setup the Arduino programming environment for working with Infrared signals. This part is a bit tricky, because we are going to manually install an Arduino library for working with Infrared communications.

The ArduinoIDE (version 1.6.9 has been used in this book) comes preloaded with an Infrared remote-control library. However, this library is designed for Arduino compatible robotic vehicles that are manufactured separately - it does not work directly with normal IR receivers. For straightforward working with IR devices, there is a very popular open source IR library for Arduino that was written by Ken Shirriff. We will use the Ken Shirriff IR library instead ...
