Arduino course: API status traffic light

by Alberto Perro (Universite d'Aix-Marseille III (FR))

3179 (CERN)




What is this for?

This worskshop will present the use of electronic tools for rapid prototyping, programming for hardware projects, and the big world of Internet-of-Things. No prior knowledge is needed.

The workshop is aimed at scientists, engineers and students located at CERN.

What will you learn?

In this course you will learn what an Arduino is and how to interface it with a service hosted on the Internet (an API). You will then make them interact with each other by writing some simple lines of code and make LEDs blink. 

Why is it interesting?

This workshop is intended as your first steps into the vast world of Internet-of-Things. Nowadays, you are surrounded by IoT devices, so this will help your journey in the connected world. 


Each workshop is limited to 15 attendees. The required software is Arduino IDE. You are asked to bring along your own laptop (if not possible, please indicate this in the registration form). Like best things in CERN, it is free of charge.


Workshop: January 18 from 18.00-20.00 at IdeaSquare.

The workshop will be run by Alberto Perro.
