Overview

Arduino is an open-source, single-board, microcontroller for building devices that can sense and control objects in the physical world.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to program the Arduino for real-world usage, such as to control lights, motors and motion detection sensors. This course assumes the use of real hardware components in a live lab environment (not software-simulated hardware). 

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Program Arduino to control lights, motors, and other devices.
  • Understand Arduino's architecture, including inputs and connectors for add-on devices.
  • Add third-party components such as LCDs, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and GPS trackers to extend Arduino's functionality.
  • Understand the various options in programming languages, from C to drag-and-drop languages.
  • Test, debug, and deploy the Arduino to solve real world problems.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.

Course Customization Options

  • Arduino is available in different models and supports different programming interfaces (C, C++, C#, Python) and IDEs (Arduino IDE, Visual Studio, etc.). The following will be used for this course:
    • Arduino Uno board
    • Arduino IDE
    • Arduino language (based on C/C++)
  • *** Participants are responsible for purchasing their own Arduino hardware and components! ***
  • To request a different setup, please contact us to arrange.
