Arduino is the extremely popular computer environment for building hobby robots and MORE!

Servocontrol is the major mechanism for controlling objects in the real world using a computer!

At a minimum: You need to bring your laptop computer and an Arduino-compatible computer "control board" to the class. It is YOUR responsibility to obtain these items in advance of the class. They are not included because some prospective attendees that I have spoken to are already prepared with these materials and I cannot buy these and provide them to the class. Be sure to bring power cords, battery packs and other essentials. If you have questions about this, use the comment section below.

Optional: I have a few servos that I can let you borrow for use in the class. But, if you have your own, please bring them as well. Also, the space has some tools, but feel free to bring your own tools, hookup wires, etc.

The Introduction to Arduino and Servocontrol class will cover the basics of setting up the environment for programming the Arduino and getting the sketch running for producing PWM signals to control a servo. We will do this over two evenings. The first evening will focus on getting everything connected and operating. The second evening will focus on programming and enhancing the code to make the servo do specific things. If we have time, we will integrate some sensors to control the servo.We will set aside plenty of time to answer and discuss questions from class members.

If you need help with computer programming, I can help you with that, if time permits.
