18/03/2010 - FTS seminar series @ Cardiff Univesity, Computer Science. Pete Woznowski and Rich Coombs one hour presentation on Arduino. Some info on Arduino and the talk: Arduino is a hardware and software platform for developing electronic devices and applications, aimed at being fun and accessible to everyone. Think Lego Mindstorms, but aimed intentionally at adults (rather than aimed at children and incidentally used by adults :)). The scope and potential for Arduino is huge. It has been used to develop simple applications like pedometers and networked environmental sensors, to art exhibits and remote controlled vehicles. The talk aims to give an overview of the Arduino platform and a brief introduction to designing and programming Arduino applications, along with some demonstrations.
