Day 21 & 22 - 21st & 22nd March, 2013 - Learning to use an Arduino
An Arduino is like a mini-computer, more aptly called a microprocessor. It allows the user to program it according to the functions required. It can be used for a wide range of purposes, from modulating sounds to sensing the brightness of light. By connecting the arduino to the correct circuitry, once the program is fed in, you have your very own robot!
We made different circuits on a breadboard using LEDs, single strand wires, LDRs and a servo. We also learned which programs to use to create a blinking LED, a fading LED, a knight-rider, and an LED that lights up when the LDR reading becomes low, and a specific angled motor.
Here are a few pictures!
