Arduino Outputs

Video description

If you’ve got your prototype design approach down and have learned all about the types of input devices Arduino can work with, you’re ready to work with the output devices that will make your creations produce actions in the physical world. In this course, you’ll get an overview of everything from simple outputs (LEDs, buzzers) to the more complex (motors, speakers, and graphical displays). You’ll also learn how to wire them up and program them.

  • Understand how to work with relays, including high voltage relays
  • Learn to add movement with multiple motor types, pneumatic actuators, and hydraulic actuators
  • Discover how to wire up and control visual feedback devices like LEDs and OLEDs
  • Learn to create sound outputs using buzzers, speakers, MP3 and WAV files, and Midi devices
