1  Where we are going: ◦ Basics ◦ Types of Arduino ◦ Software ◦ Shields ◦ Basic electronics ◦ Examples of arduino projects ◦ Where to go from here

2  Processor (Like a motherboard)  The Arduino is based on Atmel's ATMEGA8, ATMega8U2 and ATMEGA168 microcontrollers.  Input/Output  Onboard USB hardware  13 digital pins (6 PWM, Serial)  6 analog pins (1024 resolution over 5 volts, sample rate at <10MH)

3  Developed in Italy for students to replace BASIC stamp  Named after a local bar, means strong friend  Completely open source from the beginning

4  Need for small embedded systems ◦ UAVs ◦ Robotics ◦ Hacking  Small means hard to prototype  Solution: Arduino ◦ Small ◦ Powerful ◦ Easy to prototype ◦ Open Source

7  Arduino ◦ Open Source ◦ Easy to use ◦ Premade “sketches” ◦ Easy serial monitoring

8  RobotC ◦ Proprietary ◦ Quick prototyping ◦ More features

9  Shield are stackable circuit boards  All different kinds ◦ Ethernet ◦ Wireless (Xbee) ◦ Motor Controller ◦ LCD ◦ Prototyping ◦ Ardupilot (UAV) ◦ The list goes on!

10  A Quick, Practical (hopefully painless) Intro  Voltage (Volts) ◦ Electromotive Force ◦ How “fast” electrons are moving  Current (Amperes) ◦ How many electrons are moving  Current flows from positive to negative. +  - (Generally red to black)  Earth Ground:

11  Resistors ◦ “resists” current ◦ Units in Ohms “Ω” ◦ Converts voltage to heat ◦ Make sure Wattage (current times voltage) limit is high enough

12  Potentiometer ◦ Variable Resistor ◦ Three Pins ◦ Multi-Turn available

13  Capacitor ◦ Stores Electrical Energy ◦ Units in Farads (capacitance) ◦ Like a battery, but electrical instead of chemical

14  Diode ◦ Conducts current only one way ◦ Protects from backwash ◦ Special uses:  Light Emitting Diode (LED)  Voltage regulator (Zener diodes)  generate radio frequency oscillations (tunnel diodes)

15  Transistor ◦ Can act like a switch or amplifier ◦ Useful for controlling large currents ◦ Three Pins  Emitter  Collector  Base  Names don’t communicate function ◦ Names (PNP, NPN) not important

16  RC car controlled through the web: ◦ Uses a premade frame ◦ It has a webcam! ◦ WRT54G router communicates with base station

17  VwUs&feature=player_embedded VwUs&feature=player_embedded

18  Mows your lawn without you having to lift a finger!

19  Quadrocopter uses 3-axis accel and gyros with compass to stabilize

20  My first arduino project.

21  - Main Site  – Primary Supplier  - Helpful shield Reference  - Arduino Documentary  - Example Projects
