The reason that Mindstorms and Arduino can work so well together is that both systems are based on standard electronics components and concepts. In this chapter, you will learn all about basic electronic theory in a practical, project-oriented way. We start with a quick introduction to the basic electronic components like resistors and capacitors. After that we’ll introduce a variety of interesting sensors you might want to use in your own Lego and Arduino projects.
