Arduino Club

October 4 @ 18:00 - 19:30

Free

Arduino is a popular open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software that is designed to be as flexible as possible. All kinds of people are getting into the powerful and interactive things you can do with an Arduino — from school kids to university researchers, to artists and designers. One thing that sets apart Arduino from a lot of other platforms is that anyone can write new programs to use with it and share them online. Even more powerfully, special code collections called libraries extend the things Arduino can do by allowing you to connect cameras, motors, printers, scanners, remote controls — you name it.

Because anyone can create code for Arduino and share it online, the community is really growing fast. It has been instrumental in renewing interest in electronics and new hacker spaces all over the country where people build cool things, such as autonomous robots, 3D printers, and interactive artwork.
EXAMPLE OF ARDUINO PROJECTS
  • Read a humidity sensor connected to a potted plant and turn on an automatic watering system if it gets too dry.

  • Make a stand-alone chat server which is plugged into your internet router.

  • Arduino based robot – You can program the robot to move around on its two wheels while avoiding any obstacle you put in its way.

  • Tweet every time your cat passes through a pet door.

  • Start a pot of coffee when your alarm goes off in the morning.

  • Garage door opener – how Arduino can be contacted by a mobile phone to trigger your garage door

  • Talking clock

  • Pollutant sensor – Arduino makes it easy to monitor your air quality

  • Lots of more…

Join us for our new biweekly Arduino Club, which is open to people of all ages to get together to demo, discuss and learn Arduino. The club will be led by Igor Volnov, who has over 20 years of experience in IT, computer programming and Arduino.

(Arduino kits will be provided.)
