An introduction to Arduino Workshop

What is Arduino?

Arduino is an open source microcontroller kit for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control objects in the physical world. It is a low-cost and easy way for teachers and students to create devices that interact with their environment, using such things as sensors and motors. Common examples would include simple robots, thermostats and motion detectors.
