Arduino is an open-source hardware and software company, project and user community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control objects in the physical and digital world. Arduino board designs use a variety of microprocessors and controllers. The boards are equipped with sets of digital and analog input/output (I/O) pins that may be interfaced to various expansion boards or breadboards (shields) and other circuits.
The boards feature serial communications interfaces, including Universal Serial Bus (USB) on some models, which are also used for loading programs from personal computers. The microcontrollers are typically programmed using a dialect of features from the programming languages C and C++. In addition to using traditional compiler toolchains, the Arduino project provides an integrated development environment (IDE) based on the Processing language project.
The most important advantage of the Arduino system is that many sensors are easily connected to the board, while the sensing values can easily initiate operating many instruments and actuators. For the last many years, STEM Science Center has developed multiple Arduino-controlling systems. This interactive system lays the foundation of the 4th industrial revolution which literally means by the interactive world through the internet connection.
Our STEM Science Center puts much emphasis on the importance of Arduino microprocessor since the concept and technologies of Arduino seem to fit exactly to the concept of the 4th industrial revolution including coding and lots of interactive products from the Arduino system.
Design of smart chair, blind house, stimulation & response meter, feed-back mineral adding system, smart fire alarm, voice-activating AI servant and multi-reactor monitoring system consist of the Arduino systems.
