Definitions of Codologie III - OpenTech 2.0 - Mini Projects & Arduino Apps
A mentored lab where students use open source hardware and software technologies and build smart devices and applications. Codologie III labs use the Arduino open source hardware and a choice of real world programming languages such as C and Java. The Arduino is a small single function micro-controller/computer designed to help students understand and explore the cyber-physical systems.
"An A level student at Mathobotix Labs, Nikita is studying codologie-III to become a future aerospace engineer, and may be, a inventor... and, may be a Smart Device Architect."
Objectives: Using previously learned codologie skills learn to build cyber-physical systems. Fabricate smart devices, add 'smarts' and apply automation. Learn to Code, Code to Learn. Explore "mini-project" based hands-on labs. Arduino is a microcontroller; a small computer that has a single function. Microcontrollers run everyday items like toaster ovens, electronic toys and MP3 players. An Arduino can be programmed to monitor sensors and watch for inputs like temperature, pressure, light, voltage or a button or switch. It can also be programmed to control switches, relays, motors and other outputs. There are many add on boards, called shields, that add features like WiFi, GPS and card readers. Codologie III mini-projects help students understand and explore the almost-magical world of computing, electronics and open source technology. Students learn to solder, build circuits, and create smart devices. Take a peek at the Internet of Things (IoT) or touch Cloud Computing! Sounds unbelievable! It is true:-)
Level: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced level courses available. Students are placed in the appropriate level based on their entry level knowledge and skills.
