This Week:

  • We will look at the Dragino concept. (We'll be getting one next week!)
  • We will work on details of hardware and software for individual projects.

Last Week:

  • We will Discussed OUTPUT devices in particular
  • Who showed some POWER CONTROL stuff...
  • We will discussed projects people are interested in, using Arduino as the "Engine"
  • We will discussed INTERFACING Input and Output Devices to Arduino

What we're working on and what's Working:

  • Heikki got an LCD Display connected and working, various characters back & forth..
  • Greg got an Arduino Ethernet shield working on on the Internet, creating a web server showing the room temperature
  • Lakshmi is planning a Robot rover with different sensors and a Camera
  • Stephen is designing an Aeroponics plant growing system with Arduino controls
  • Richard is working on a Robot that can balance and move like a Segway.

  • And we'll discuss: What's Next??
