So here follows some images and recap on my first experiment with Physical computing and Arduino.
For this past week, we learned how to use Digital/Analog inputs and outputs, implemented with Arduino code.
Therefore, I did a simple motion input experiment… that worked like those automatic lights we have in stairs, the ones that are motion activated.
For that, besides LEDs, wires, resistors, my Arduino and computer, I also needed a motion sensor.
So i plugged it in my bredboard and did the following circuit:
Then I added code, commanding how I wanted the lights (outputs) to behave when motion was detected (input).
Thus, my circuit executed what I programmed it to do:
