Transcript of Building your Drone ANIM4477.01 Day 4

We are going to make some lights blink
We are going to make a servo 'sweep'
Then we will do them both simultaneously!
Arduino Lab!
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Blink (LED)
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Sweep (Servo)
http://arduino.cc/en/tutorial/fading (PWM)
http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Servo (PWM)
Digital? (off or on at 3.3v or 5v)
Analog? (variable voltage between 0-5v)
What is PWM Again?
You can use an analog pin as a digital pin
Making stuff happen
digital outputs have two positions: high and low
analog outputs give between 0 and 5V
Note: we are doing this *wrong* no resistors
Why? Didn't have any, don't care... (explain)
The Arduino GUI
The Arduino language is based on C/C++
LEDs ARE directional... (think diode)
Don't mix +(pos) and -(neg) on the servos please
Arduino programming 101
If you finish early, help other folks...
Don't use same pin as example code
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/SecretsOfArduinoPWM (3, 5, 6, 9, 10, or 11)
Do Blink First - http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Blink
Do NOT use pin 13... use a different one
Ignore missing resistor
Do Sweep Second - http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Sweep
Combine them for final exercise... (on your own)
Bring to me when you have completed
See example on my desk, use different pins!
Bored? Try Fade on a PWM enabled PIN
