Arduino and Raspberry Pi

 

Arduino

What’s an arduino?

An Arduino is a tiny sized computer that allows you to program basic commands, and build your own circuits with sensors.

How do folks use it?

Some students and researchers have programmed Arduino to do a lot of things: programmed one to be a weather station taking humidity and temperature measurements, designed a device for visually impaired individuals to wear that senses objects in front of them, making a sound, or the student designed HAL.

What’s a HAL?

If you stop by the makerlab there is a giant server box (blue/grey) with a red button on top. Hit the red button, and it plays a random sound. There is both an Arduino and Raspberry Pi inside. Stop by and check it out.

How can I learn more?

The Circulation Desk checks out Arduinos, and the software, along with basic programs, is installed on lab computers. If you’d like a one on one session, let me know.
