The Process of Arduino Engineering

In this chapter, we will discuss the engineering process and how you can use it streamline your prototypes by avoiding problems with hardware and software and keeping to a fixed schedule. Throughout this book, you will have projects that will be organized into a sequence I like to call the “engineering process.” Here’s a quick summary of the sequence:

  1. Requirements Gathering
  2. Creating the requirements document
  3. Gathering hardware
  4. Configuring the hardware
  5. Writing the software
  6. Debugging the Arduino software
  7. Troubleshooting the hardware
  8. Finished prototype

As you can imagine, even this summary of engineering process is very effective when prototyping, which is why we will use it with the Arduino ...
