Introduction to Arduino

Have you ever wanted to programme your very own microcontroller? From an automatic watering system for the green house, to starting the coffee machine when you wake up, the Arduino can do it!

Course Overview

Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.  This course will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Arduino hardware
  • Introduction to Arduino sensors and peripherals 
  • How to set up Arduino software and outputting code
  • C Programming for Arduino
  • How to build a robotic sensor project using Arduino
