Arduino Zero to Hero
What you'll learn
- Confidently use many of the popular electronics components: breadboards, resistors, transistors, LED's potentiometers etc..
- Write Arduino programs with multiple inputs and outputs
- Read values from analog and digital sensors: sound, temperature, light, force, turning moment etc . .
- Create music instruments with button and light sensor inputs
- Use sensor libraries for acceleromenter, gyroscope and remote control applications
- Set up scientific experiments using circuits and code to test memory and reaction time
- Save data from ARduino to SD card and export results to Excell
- Use processing to connect mouse and keyboard inputs to Arduino
- Visualize sensor outputs as live display graphs on Processning software
- You should have access to an Arduino Prototyping kit
- You should have admin access to a Mac or a PC so you can install the Arduino Software
Arduino is an open-source microcontroller used for building electronics projects. Since it arrived on the scent, Arduino completely revolutionized DIY electronics, making it possible for artists, teenagers and hobbyists to create a vast array of projects which interact with people and the environment.
In this course you will learn how to create simple projects by using Arduino.
This course is a product of my 5 years of playing and teaching with Arduino's. The learning sequence of
Sections 1-3 introduce Arduino and build student confidence by first learning how to just build circuits and afterwards how to write programs.
Section 4 teaches the fundamentals of analog circuits and applies those to sound sensors, temperature sensors, light mixers and musical instruments.
Section 5 takes on digital circuits, starting with button inputs being used to create sound effects, memory games, guessing games with a 7 segment display and measure human reaction time.
Section 6 is all about installing and using sensor libraries with Gyro Accelerometer Circuits and Remote Control Circuits.
Section 7 Wraps up the course with some spectacular visualizations of sensor outputs using a software called Processing.
Each section will help you learn and finally you can be a master of Arduino.
Who this course is for:
- Ambitious beginners who want to master Arduino.
- Intermediate coders, electronics enthusiasts who wand to expand their repetoire
- Teachers and educators looking for a systematic step by step way to learn Arduino
Sanjin is a teacher and a robotics engineer with a passion for teaching Coding and Robotics to school aged children. He has spent more than 5 years teaching various age groups in platforms like Scratch, Arduino, Python, Raspberry Pi and Lego Mindstorms.
He is presently working with over 20 schools in Melbourne to help them implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum in a meaningful manner. This means developing learning sequences that help students easily grasp the core concepts of coding and then setting them up with problems that involve higher level computational thinking and integration with various mathematical concepts.
I am a CS graduated Student finding ways to implement automations by AI. I have learned and implemented projects on python, java, node, C and C sharp. I have also used SQL, firebase and Oracle.
I have used selenium and python libraries to implement automation.
I am looking new ways to use OpenCV, tensorflow and much more
