Time: 11am - 5 pm
Location: Farset Labs, Weavers Court, BT12 5GH
This Future Labs workshop will introduce attendees to the Arduino development ecosystem, basic electronics prototyping, the use of sensors/displays on the Arduino platform to provide input/output, and using Bluetooth, WiFi and MQTT to send/receive information/triggers remotely to trigger actions and events, including triggering musical and visual compositions.
The first half of the workshop will focus on developing a working knowledge of the Arduino development platform. This will range from simple operations such as flashing an LED up to streaming sensor values to a live web portal. The workshop will then explore how to take these sensor values and use them to generate real-time audio experiences.
This is a great introduction to both the practical world of electronics, and the concepts of physical computing inherent in the burgeoning field of IoT.
This workshop is facilitated by Andrew Bolster, a Data Scientist and Systems Researcher with a wide range of skills and experiences across technical, business, and entrepreneurial fields. Andrew is the founder/director of Farset Labs; https://andrewbolster.info/
