What Is Arduino
Arduino is an electronic platform made up of two parts : software and hardware. The first part of the arduino board (hardware), is capable of reading inputs such as changes in light using a sensor, movements using movement sensors, and vocal variations using the blueteeth app. It then turns the input into an out put: controlling motor speed and torque or switching on/off a LED. In this way, a programme can be written to control the board through a set instructions that are sent to microcontroller. This procedure is performed by arduino (IDE) software, which is based on the Processing language and uses arduino programing language.
Hernando Baragán, who was studying for a master’s degree at the Interaction Institute ivrea(IDII), in ivrea Italy, invented the wiring platform in 2003. The project was developed as part of Massima’s master thesis under Casey Reas and Massima Bazi. It was his goal to design a PCB and manufacture it with an ATmega168 microcontroller. The microcontroller, which cost $100 each and used Basic Stamper, was replaced. Massimo Banzi developed the wiring with David Mellis and David Cuartielles. They added support for the ATmega8 which is a cheaper microcontroller. In order to continue the Wiring project, the team forked it and renamed Arduino. Massima Binzi was the designer of the first Arduino prototype. It was similar to Wiring.
The group called Arduino team was made up of people from Italy, the USA and Spain. They were designed to be a platform that would allow students with no electronics or programming experience to quickly prototype and create projects for Ivrea Interactive Design Institute. With
After reaching a wider community, Arduino began modernizing its board to meet the needs of the market. Its product range has evolved from 8-bit boards for simple IoT applications to wearable, embedded, and 3D printed products. All Arduino Boards are 100% open-source. Users can build and customize them according to individual needs. It is open source, as is the software. Users from around the globe contribute to it, which is why it continues to grow. Adafruit Industries of New York City is a supplier for Arduino boards, components, and assemblies. It was estimated that more than 300,000 Arduino Boards had been produced commercially by mid-2011. The number of official boards increased to 700,000 in 2013.
The Arduino platform is a powerful tool that can be used to create a wide range of projects from simple scientific devices to everyday objects. It is a source of creativity, innovation, and inspiration that brought together a worldwide maker community, which includes students, artists and hobbyists as well professionals and programmers. They have contributed to a wealth of knowledge that is accessible to all levels of expertise and novices alike.
