Arduino for the SLSv1 project

Arduino for the SLSv1 project

This prototyping experiment takes inspiration from a previous project called SLSv1 that was developed between 2006 and 2007. At the time the project was designed there was a critical issue, related with the movement of a structure, that was not solved for lack of experience with Arduino. The structure in picture 1 represents the Seasonal [...]


Arduino: First approach

Arduino: First approach

In the last years I have got in touch with many people enthusiast of a small integrated micro-controller called Arduino. For those of you that never heard about it, Arduino is an assembled electronic board centered around the ATmega328 (a programmable micro-controller with 32KB of flash Memory). The Arduino board is an Italian open source [...]
