Will you be surprised to know about the use of ARDUINO in the IoT, Wearable and other handy devices has been increased in a noticeable amount?
Arduino is an open-source electronics board. It has an easy-to-use hardware and software interface. Arduino has three types of boards, Arduino UNO, Arduino NANO and Arduino MEGA. These boards are able to read inputs from sensors like light sensors, Finger print sensors and can actuate motors, turn on LEDs or Activating relays as output. Arduino also can read Twitter messages and can publish twits online.
Arduino was born at the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. As soon as it reached a wider community, the Arduino board started changing to adapt to new needs and challenges, differentiating its offer from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT applications, wearable, 3D printing, and embedded environments. All Arduino boards are completely open-source, empowering users to build them independently and eventually adapt them to their particular needs.
Nowadays Arduino has become the most favorite and most usable microconroller interface in the recent era. Because of its’ simple USB interface and for its’ easy and adaptable programming language and libraries, Engineers and hobbyists and other techie persons are liking this board too much. Its’ users are being considered from the school students to the PhD researchers. The main reason of its’ popularity is the lower cost and maintenance is easy and the shield adoptions are higher than any other boards in the world. It is being used in everywhere from the TRAFFIC LIGHT CONTROLLING SYSTEM a high school project to INTERNET OF THINGS ( IoT ) and many other handy tools like slide calipers, Thermometers and many other tools are being built by Arduino.
