Physical Computing

Physical (or embedded) computing, in the broadest sense, means building interactive physical systems by the use of software and hardware that can sense and respond to the analog world. Physical computing is a creative framework for understanding human beings’ relationship to the digital world.

In this two days workshop, we use Arduino (http://arduino.cc/) as the physical computing platform. Arduino is a microcontroller powered open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for engineers, artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. The workshop involves making do-it-yourself hobby projects that use sensors and microcontrollers to translate analog input to a software system, and/or control electro-mechanical devices such as motors, servos, lighting or other hardware.

As Arduino is open-source, the software can be downloadedhttp://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software for free and the hardware reference designs (CAD files) are available under an open-source license.  What is more exciting is the vast Arduino community all across the globe to help you get your doubts clarified!

The concepts that will be covered are:

  • About Arduino.
  • How Arduino works, project’s philosophy and community orientation.
  • Arduino Hardware.
  • Arduino programming language and development environment.
  • Electrical characteristics of various sensors.
  • Interfacing sensors with Arduino
  • Types of actuators
  • Interfacing Arduino with breadboard

The hands-on activities will include:

  • Playing with LEDs and LCD displays.
  • DTMF techniques using Arduino.
  • PWM of all Arduino pins without extra hardware.
  • Controlling stepper and servo motors using potentiometer.
  • Touch screen control using Arduino
  • Ultra sound sensors interfacing
  • *Slot sensors to act as encoders
  • Matrix Keypad interfacing
  • Accelerometer control
  • Magnetic and Temperature sensors interfacing
  • Wireless RF control
  • Metal and gas detection sensor interfacing
  • Building autonomous robots using Arduino

Take-away Kit includes:
