We all like to learn to program a robot, but the world of electronics and robotics seems very complex and difficult to understand.
Can you imagine if there was a way to build devices in a simple and intuitive way , through a visual system that does not require learning a new language ?
This is the offering Scratch for Arduino ( S4A ) , an application that uses environment simple and intuitive programming (Scratch ) with a plate system that allows us to build electronic projects (Arduino ) . Thus, robots can be programmed from a virtual card system that bind to each other , which allow us to manipulate the components and receive information of the plates that make up our robot.
Experimentation and intuition are key in this process. As you combine the different elements (parts ) into the Scratch programming platform , change the operation of the robot , so that the possibilities are endless . Through this process , future programmers understand all the details of what they themselves have built , from the operating mechanism to the characteristics of the plates and robots .
What you'll learn:
Basic concepts of object-oriented programming and electronics ( and robotics ) .
Things to do :
From experimenting with plate and circuits can be created ( build ) various projects as a surveillance camera or a red light , and even robots that "walk " and are able to follow previously marked trails .
The plates are used to mount robots are open source ,so the possibilities are almost endless!
Scratch for Arduino combines the strengths of both systems and makes programming of robots is even simpler . Everyone can learn to program with S4A , learning to solve problems and interacting with robots .
