This course is designed for anyone with no prior knowledge of Microcontrollers and programming. An Arduino is constructed based on a microcontroller which is an electronic component that can perform three items. It can collect inputs or information from its surrounding environment, process and interpret this information, make a decision, and finally control output devices that are connected to it. Therefore, an Arduino can be employed as the brain of a Robot. This course is recommended for college students and continuing education of adult learners; however, you can participate in the course at your own discretion.
The following topics will be covered in this course:
- What is an Arduino?
- Where to start?
- Writing and programming the first Arduino project: flashing lights with LED
- Introduction of C language commands for programming the Arduino (such as Loops,
- Overview of Input/Output (I/O) Interfaces
- Introduction to LEDs, Switches, Buzzers, and Display Devices
- Introduction of functional sensor
- How to connect the Arduino board and its programming
- Analog to Digital Conversion (ADC)
- How to connect DC motors and control them via Arduino
- Connection of ordinary character LCDs and their programming
- Learn how to connect speakers and other audio modules to create a sound for a robot
- making a line follower Robot
- Serial Communication and UART Programming
