About this course: For many years now, people have been improving their tools, studying the forces of nature and bringing them under control, using the energy of the nature to operate their machines.
Last century is noted for the creation of machines which can operate other machines.
Nowadays the creation of devices that interact with the physical world is available to anyone.
Our course consists of a series of practical problems on making things that work independently: they make their own decisions, act, move, communicate with each other and people around, and control other devices.
We will demonstrate how to assemble such devices and programme them using the Arduino platform as a basis.
