With this short guide we release today, we will explain you how to use your Arduino Yun to do something that was never accomplished before with a board of such family. We’ll face a real embedded project, with its set of sensors and management and control applications. Thanks to our experiment shield (more info), you’ll manage the sensors via a web browser, having no need of writing a software. Connect a button that is open when at rest between the ground of the shield and the pin 7. Connect the central pin of a 47Kohm potentiometer to the A5 pin and the ends to the ground and to the positive of the shield. Finally connect a switch to pin 4 and one end to the ground. For a better visual effect, although not necessary, connect a common cathode RGB LED to the grounded cathode and to the R, G and B clamps, respectively to pins 3 , 5 and 6 with a limiting resistor of 330 ohms on each clamp. The "bricks" that must be used for the project are the shield [...]
