Arduino workshop

How to use Arduinos in your research

 

A team of first and second year Sensor CDT students ran an extremely enjoyable and successful one day workshop on how to use Arduino micro controllers for research applications.

The examples were very well designed.

It was very nice that there were such helpful assistants.

Exactly the kind of level and detail expected.

Very much worth the trip from London.

Great fun! Thanks

Interdisciplinary

The workshop, held in the Department of Engineering, was attended by 40 undergraduate and PhD students, researchers and professors from Departments across the University, including Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer laboratory and Zoology. In addition researchers from other universities and industrial R&D staff also attended.

Beginners and advanced users

During the workshop beginners and advanced user alike learned how to read sensor data from analog and digital devices, use interrupt routines and control lab equipment. Controlling the speed of an electric motor was used to demonstrate the capabilities and limitations of Arduino micro controllers.
