Learn from the basics to some advanced techniques in this 28‐hours free course:
- Discover embedded computer systems Shield
- Display a message (i2c LCD screen, SPI LED matrix, I2C 7 Segments LED Display, I2C OLED screen)
- Explore integrated circuit (power interface, operational amplifier, sensors, rfid reader)
- Develop skills on motor control (dc motor, servomotor, stepper motor)
Drones relies upon electronic devices connected to an embedded computer programmed to be remote controlled or to act autonomously. The embedded computer works with an operating system which must be installed and updated. To restore it or to clone it, it is necessary to create an image.
To connect more easily electronic devices or to add functionalities, it is common to plug in a shield over the main board. Then, it becomes possible to display a message on various screens, to control different types of motors and acquire sensors data.
The drone is first programmed to work independently. Secondly, server applications allow a wireless communication with a computer by Wi-Fi. RFID cards are often used to access to a safe location. The principle of the technology followed by the process of reading and writing are studied.
Each theorical study is followed by a practical activity which illustrates how to concretely use each electronic device.
