Arduino Programming

This Fall we’ll be using Arduino microcontrollers to teach programming and also to  cross-train with the electrical subteam.  Microcontrollers  are small computers that are well suited to  electrical hacking.

We’ll be writing little Arduino programs in C++, which is similar to the Java programming language we’ll use to program the big robots.

We’ll have a few loner computers available, but if you have your own laptop, it really helps to bring it in to the meeting.  Better yet, you can get a jump on things by preinstalling the software from .

Here’s a short video introduction to Arduino:
