Learn how to create electronic projects with the Arduino, the world's friendliest electronics prototyping platform! The Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Sensing the environment by receiving inputs from many sensors, Arduino affects its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and a number of other accessories. It's intended for anyone making interactive hardware projects. This course is designed to introduce the Arduino hardware and programming environment to get you started on building projects as soon as possible.
You've created your first prototypes using the Arduino micro-controller, you understand how to input to it, output from it, and now you're ready for more. Maybe you even want to commercialize your prototype. This course transforms your Arduino prototypes from basic to advanced, presenting a new set of skills, techniques, and technologies you can use to make your prototypes more useful, robust, and perhaps… market ready.
If you’ve got your prototype design approach down and have learned all about the types of input devices Arduino can work with, you’re ready to work with the output devices that will make your creations produce actions in the physical world. In this course, you’ll get an overview of everything from simple outputs (LEDs, buzzers) to the more complex (motors, speakers, and graphical displays). You’ll also learn how to wire them up and program them.
