Why just play music or connect to the internet when you can use the iPhone or iPad for some really fun projects, like building a metal detector, hacking a radio control truck, or tracking a typical missile while in flight? Learn how to create these cool stuff and more with affordable iOS device and hardware sensors like Arduino and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Shield.

This book constitutes the referees of the Seventeenth Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence SBIA 2004, held in São Luis, Maranhão, Brazil in September / October 2004, and 54 carefully revised full papers were selected and selected from among 208 applications from 21 countries. The papers are organized into thematic sections on logic, planning, and theoretical methods. Research, logic and uncertainty; Representation of knowledge and ontology; Natural language processing; Machine learning, knowledge discovery and data mining; Evolutionary computing, artificial life, and hybrid systems; Robots and seeing the compiler; Independent agents and multi-agent systems.


You can carry an amazing science tool in your pocket every day, and use it for worldly tasks like making phone calls or listening to music. IPad 2 is as fast as the Cray-2 supercomputer a few decades ago, yet most people only use it to read books or browse the web. What a waste.

This book is about connecting iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to the real world. You will start learning how to directly access the sensors included in your device. Next, you'll see how to connect wired sensors via the headphone port using a cool little device called HiJack. Several chapters show different ways to use Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to sensors, Arduino precision controllers, motor controllers and even other iPhones or iPads. Finally, you'll see exactly how to use WiFi to connect to the Internet or physical devices connected to WiFi devices.

It would be very boring to make all these connections just to light up a few LEDs, so the book is organized around fun and interesting projects. Built-in sensors are used to create a metal detector. HiJack is connected to a simple electrical device that can be used as a plant moisture sensor. Low Bluetooth technology connects to the Texas Instruments Sensor to detect acceleration to track the flight of a typical rocket, then later to the Arduino controller to break through a wirelessly controlled car, demonstrating how to create and control robots with your iPhone. Low Bluetooth power can also be used for peer-to-peer communication between iOS devices. You will learn how this is done by creating an arcade game that uses iPhones for rowing devices. WiFi will be connected to a serial bridge to control the machines, and eventually the candy tablet will break through to give you the candy under iPhone control.

 Looking at each topic begins with a chapter introducing the basic concepts using a simple project. One or more chapters follow these introductions, introducing the just mentioned interesting projects. You may not want to build each one of them yourself, but by reading how they are created and how they work, you will get ideas on how to build your own projects.
