WHAT IS ARDUINO??? LEARNING: WHAT CAN I DO WITH ARDUINO? SOME PROJECTS

Arduino is a small $15 circuit board with an Atmel MicroController chip and other parts. Arduino is intended for use by both non-technical people with no previous programming experience and seasoned pros who love to tinker. There are several versions: see examples HERE Arduino hardware and software is Open Source, and the designs and software are available to be copied and changed.

You can MAKE THINGS with Arduino:
  • Things that are smart!, and can make decisions about what to do when things change.
  • Things that can sense the world around them, such as temperature, light, speeds, connections, touch and much more.
  • Things that can take actions like moving a servo, displaying a temperature, turning up the heat or signalling you by a beep or an SMS.
  • Things that don't get bored and don't get tired, and stay up all night checking things and taking your data.
  • Things that Communicate: With LCD displays, buttons, LEDs, Bluetooth to your Phone, and on the Web.

This is called 'PHYSICAL COMPUTING'

Arduino is intended for use by non-technical people with no previous programming experience to make their own InteractiveObjects, Art Installations, Intelligent machines, Robots, Weather Stations and 100's of other projects. Learn how to PLAN Arduino projects HERE:

Arduino is a Rapid Electronics Prototyping Platform' which consists of two main parts:
  • HARDWARE: An Arduino Open-Source Microcomputer board
  • SOFTWARE: The free Arduino IDE that runs on PC, MAC and LINUX.

Arduino is great with other Rapid Prototyping technologies like 3-D Printers and Laser Cutters. Many MakerSpaces are featuring Arduino with other tools and technologies.

The Arduino "IDE" software looks virtually the same on Windows, MAC or Linux, but the Installation procedures are different.

See our ARDUINO INSTALL PAGE

After Installation, or if your board is already installed, continue with Learn Arduino.

ROBOTIC CAT FOOD DOOR

Robotic Cat Door (click)

This is simple example that uses only an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor and a ServoMotor to create an automatic door.

Arduino is intended for use by non-technical people with no previous programming experience to make their own Interactive Objects, Art Installations, Intelligent machines, Robots, Weather Stations and 100's of other projects BEGINNER EXAMPLES:

It's easiest to start with a "Starter Set" that includes an Arduino Microcomputer, cables, and a selection of sensors and actuators, LCD display etc. so you can get right into connecting your Arduino, connecting devices and trying out simple Software Sketches in the Arduino IDE software. There are many such sets available but we will show you here the one we know the most about: The Yourduino Makerspace Engineering Kit. Come back here later!
