Mechatronic eyes, Arduino and servos: a basic introduction.

Requirements

  • No requirements.

Thank you for deciding to take this course on Arduino with a focus on the basics of servos and mechatronics.

This course is about coding mostly and getting familiar with servos and Arduino.

We assume you start from zero or with very basic knowledge but the target is mechatronics.

You will find lectures, codes and videos showing you how to proceed.

You will learn how to program a servo and very basics of batteries, protoboards and coding.

You will learn how to code the interruption of the Arduino board.

You will learn how to program a routine for mechatronic eyes.

The course is meant to be done in a few hours or days and each video takes.

about 10 minutes. You will code from the very beginning to the very end increasing in

difficulty but always in small steps.

 

Besides a computer to code the Arduino code and upload your code with a USB type A/B you will need:

 

1) an Arduino, for example an Arduino Uno,

2) a servo, and any servo will do, but the mechatronic eyes code need 4 (optional since

3) jumper cables (male-male) for Arduino (about 20)

4) a USB power tank and a USB cable or a 7.4 V Lip battery

5) a switch (optional)

6) a protoboard (optional)

7) a set of mechatronic eyes (optional)

 

You can buy the mechatronic eyes from us or have them sent for you to print them or assemble them in order to follow the course or buy all the material (approximately 20-30 dollars minimum for the extremely basic stuff). If you need help you can Email us at [email protected]
