Servo and IEEE Standards Workshop

Alrighty folks, the last workshop is tonight at 6pm in Clark A205.

We will be talking about servos, motors, and electrical mechanical movement as well as IEEE Standards.

The workshop will be a lot of fun, we'll be connecting servo motors to our boards, connecting the boards together, making a "servo protocol", and then making one Arduino control all of the others with the standard we create.

If you have wire strippers, please bring those in, otherwise, all you need is you Arduino, computer, and USB cable ;)

For more information on IEEE standards or to get an overview before the workshop, take a look here:

Update the firmware on your Arduino's 8U2

If you folks are having issues with your Arduino and not being able to talk to it, you should look into upgrading the firmware on the USB to processor bridge chip (in laymans terms).

Project Design Workshop

Due to exams and people's events, this week's workshop will be online.  As facebook allows for longer videos, it has been posted there.  Please take a look when you get a chance ;)
