Thursday and Friday, October 8–9 (9.00–15.00)
Arduino is a simple microcontroller platform that allows us to perform the basic or advanced processes for domestic or professional use. The workshop provides an opportunity to become acquainted with the basics of working with Arduino modules, input-output modules, and external components and sensors. The simplicity of Arduino enables a quick and effective development of applications, which can be used, among other, for operating mobile robots at the RoboCupJunior competition. Apart from the basics, the workshop will also present practical examples of creating an app for a quick and functional mobile robot.
