MFA 2012 Workshop - Microcontroller Lab
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 11:50 AM (WAT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Ever wanted to build an autonomous robot? What about a device to tell you where that annoying mosquito sound is coming from? This workshop is for you. We will learn about the basics of micro-controllers using the Arduino platform. Our goal is to have a working prototype of a sense-and-react electro-machine by the end of the session. If there is time, we will also try to introduce attendees to Lego mindstorm controllers.
