The IT Division is offering two identical Advanced Arduino workshops from 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm on Tuesday, June 24 in Pers Hall (54-130). Registration can be found on our “Training and Awareness” webpage located here:
The class will introduce advanced concepts, focusing on sensors, actuators, and programming techniques that might be used to monitor or control equipment. Topics to include:
- Sensors using the SPI and 12C interfaces
- LCD interface using a 4 bit parallel port
- How to set and read a real time clock with battery backup
- How to use IR for control (via TV remote) or communication between Arduinos
- How to filter and smooth sensor values
- How to program a servo loop to keep an actuator within a target range
Requirements: Basic familiarity with Arduino software and hardware (i.e., know how to modify and upload a program, understand basic programming concepts, know how to use a solderless breadboard to connect simple sensors and actuators to Arduino). A laptop with Arduino installed and known to function correctly (i.e., can compile and upload sketches to Uno).
Arduino kits and all other necessary materials will be provided for use during the workshop or you may bring your own. Kits are also available for purchase with a valid PID.
We also offer a variety of classes from beginner to intermediate levels in Excel and specialized Excel/PPT courses focusing on data analysis and presentation of financials. For more details on our training course offerings, click on our training link above.
