Artscience SAM

Sensors Actuators and Microcontrollers

The course will be given by Johan van Kreij and Lex van den Broek

The world of sensors and Actuators combined with Microcontrollers like Arduino / Teensy / Beagle /RaspBerry / is huge and can be very complex if you are a beginner or even an advanced user. This SAM-course of 8 (maybe 7 this year) days will introduce you to the hybrid world of Analog- and digital electronics. How to connect sensors to an Arduino and sending the measured data to miscellaneous software within your computer? How to drive (actuate) motors or lights?

The goal of the course is that you work on your own project and try to apply the techniques we show (analog, digital and code) into your own project. Subjects like ‘Serial communication, Operational Amplifiers, Max objects, Sensors, Field Effect Transistors, Current, Actuators, Voltage, Resolution and much more subjects will be addressed. We will mainly work with Arduino boards. If you have one yourself already, great! If you do not have one, you can borrow one at the EWP – let us know.  

There will be 7 days in total, starting at 10:00 and ending at 16:00. We will start on Monday March 27th and end the course on Thursday April 6th . On Wednesdays there will be no lessons.
