Lab 5 – Motors

Step 1: DC Motor The DC motor was the first one we worked with because it is one of the more simple setups. We used an H Bridge to control the motor. https://youtu.be/iyCBZmbwIvE Step 2: Stepper Motor The second motor used for this lab is the stepper motor. It is more...

Final Project – Pinball Machine

Click the images in this documentation to view a larger image! For this final project, we wanted to make something using an existing interaction that we enjoyed and could improve upon, or at least learn a lot from trying to replicate. Thus we decided to create a...

Lab 4: Serial Communication

Step 1: In Lab During the lab I setup a basic breadboard input/output to demonstrate using p5 serial communication. In this demo, a potentiometer is used move a pong paddle (game created by Tong) and I added a p5 button that lights up an LED on the board. This simple...

Lab 3 – Analog I/O

Step 1: Analog Input Lab The first lab involved wiring 2 analog sensors to the Arduino. The light sensor is set up using a second light sensor connected to ground to create a voltage-difference that can be measured by the analog input pins. The potentiometer has a...

Lab 2 – Digital I/O

Step 1: Making Breakout Boards During the labs we went over the basics of the NeoPixels and soldering so that we would be better equipped to properly make the breakout boards. During the lab I could not get my NeoPixel to work with my RedBoard (an issue that would...

Lab 1 – Basic Electronics

Step 1 - In Lab In lab, we constructed the two basic circuits, one of which I would go on to use in the project. The series circuit is a bit simpler and saves a resistor, but for my project I chose the parallel circuit because it helped me make sure that both LEDs had...
