This course is an introduction to electronics, for fine artists, sculptors, installation and performance artists, as well as those who want to add computer-controlled elements to their creations. Using the Arduino microcontroller, we will explore some of the essential and useful electronic sensors (light, sound, motion, sonar, infrared, angle bending), powerful actuators (relays, motors, servomotors, stepper motors, muscle wires and solenoids, among others), and telecommunication tools for microcontrollers (radio frequency transmitters, Bluetooth, Ethernet). This is a practical course and does not include theory. Class time will be allocated to help students work on their projects.
