More Fun with the Arduino

We have been planning a second class in our "Control Things with the Arduino" series since the positive feedback made a repeat session of the basic class necessary.

We knew what we would cover - Keypads and LCD's - but the ones we found locally were so expensive that we started sourcing them ourselves... and got stuck with horrible lead times... and we are still waiting for the stuff to be in. You can see a video of one of the demos that we made on Youtube

So finally we decided to do a different session first. We thought for a bit and worked out some useful things to cover - a mix of hardware and software which we hope will come in handy.

This session we will cover

1. Use of Serial port for
       Input (interaction)
2. Interrupts
3. Timers
4. Seven Segment LED
5. Servo Motors

This time we will be building things up as we go along so combine what we learn into a small project.

Class date - 1st March 2012 at 7.00 p.m.
70B Bussorah Street

Cost: S$ 45 per head, a portion of which goes to HackerspaceSG
