IS71065A: PHYSICAL COMPUTING: ARDUINO AND RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
Level: 7
Credits: 30
###Aims:
### Aims:
Physical Computing is of increasing interest to artists, musicians, choreographers and other creative practitioners for the creation of novel artworks and also for forms of computational interaction between these objects and people. There are many other applications of Physical Computing, for example in museums, ubiquitous and embedded computing, robotics, engineering control systems and Human Computer Interaction. A physical environment may be sonic, tangible, tactile, visually dynamic, olfactory or any combination of these. The course will explain and demonstrate how the environment, which is essentially continuous can be monitored by analogue electrical and mechanical sensors. Computers, however, are digital machines programmed by software. A focus of this course, therefore, is the interface between the digital and the analogue. This study encompasses basic physics, electronics, programming and software engineering. The practical objective of this course is the development of the skills needed for designing and building interactive physical devices.
