Event description

Description

Tuesdays 6:30pm-8:30pm

The Advanced Microcontrollers workshop provides a 5-session training which builds on the skills learned in the Intermediate Microcontroller workshop. This workshop covers a variety of sensors used in weather detection and monitoring to create a functional weather station. Workshop topics include logging data and displaying information on a desktop computer.

Participants learn how to create algorithms and structure code to integrate and process data from multiple sensors, using a design process to prototype and improve their work into a well-polished design. These skills are essential for using microcontrollers in a variety of contexts including managing sensor arrays, building integrated hardware/software applications and environmental control systems.

Takeaways

  • Understand data logging
  • Learn how to use functions and libraries to create clean and efficient code
  • Understand the engineering process to create a complete data monitor
  • Design and debug nested conditional statements, control structures and loops
  • Display and interact with data using a GUI written in processing
  • Integrate multiple sensors, including pressure, temperature and light to assess weather patterns
  • Process data to reduce noise and reduce errors
  • Format saved data for easy retrieval and calculations
  • Debug and structure complex code
