The Arduino is a powerful and versatile piece of electronics hardware, that can be used for anything from taking sensor readings or making LEDs flash, all the way to making a robot that can be controlled from the internet. With such vast potential, getting started with the Arduino can be a little intimidating to some.
As such the ROBOTC Development Team is pleased to announce the development of a series of guided projects to introduce users to the Arduino. These projects will cover topics such as making a simple mobile robot, making your own sensors, communicating with VEX or NXT robots, and how to make and use advanced sensors. The projects will all lead up to a capstone project where you will be guided through the process of converting an RC car in to a Arduino controlled mobile robot.
If you’re interested in helping out with the development of some of the lessons, feel free to contact us at arduino[at]robotc[dot]net – We’ll be offering free licenses of ROBOTC for Arduino for anyone who contributes lessons around using the Arduino with ROBOTC.
We’ll be posting all of the project materials on our ROBOTC.net Wiki – The outline for each project’s development can be found on the ROBOTC wiki at http://www.robotc.net/wiki/Arduino_Projects.
