Time : 9:00 to 14:00
Cost : R1 999,00 excluding VAT
Venue : Parktown, Johannesburg
Included : an Arduino, breadboard and relevant components and lot's of FUN!
COURSE TOPICS INCLUDE:
Introduction to the Micro Controller Unit (Arduino)
Digital inputs and outputs
Analogue inputs and outputs
Introduction to the Arduino IDE
Introduction to C based Programming
Lab One: Make a LED blink
Calculate resistor value using Ohm's law
Connect LED and resistor to digital pin
Make the LED blink
Add Serial debugging
Lab Two: Make LED turn ON on condition
Connect Passive Infra Red movement sensor as digital input
Connect "Pull-down" resistor
Read digital value from PIR
Programming : The IF or ELSE statement
Void (loop) : Configure the LOOP
Make the LED turn ON when there's movement
Lab Three: Make LED turn ON on more conditions
Connect "Pull-down" resistor
Use LDR as analogue input
Read analogue value and calibrate
Programming : The IF statement inside an IF statement
Make the LED turn ON when there's movement , but only when it's dark
Future improvements :
Now you can simply add or replace the LED with a siren and you have an
Alarm Sytem created and built all by yourself!
And not just a simple one , no this alarm only works when it's dark - perfect!
Imagine what you can add and how you can improve it?
Maybe it should phone you on your cellphone or send you a SMS!
Or you can add a button or a Keypad with a passcode to de-activate it.
You could also think of scenario's during Load shedding which can save equipment
or allow you to take appropriate action when the power goes off or when the temperature
in a server room reaches a threshold ... the sky is the limit!
Join the Arduino community and prepare yourself for great opportunities that lie ahead.
IOT - or the Internet of things predictions are that 7 Billion devices will be added
before the end of the decade - how much of these will you connect?
We like to ensure our students have fun on the course and leave with the knowledge that they came for and more.
