I am currently working with Yun, a fellow
student learning how to use Arduino
The 4th Project gave us some difficulties
as we followed the instructions from the book step by step, but we forgot how
phototransistors work. Our circuit board was not functional as the current
wasn’t flowing due to the one directional behaviour of the component. It took
us 10 minutes to figure out why.
The next project we made taught us how the
Arduino can be coded into a controller of some sort. The project uses servo
motor, something I have never used before. My board caused some problems as it
was still using the recording codes from the previous project, causing the
motor to move in a crazy way. I had to recode it and rewire the board as it was
not connected properly.
I’ve also learned how to get around the
breadboard, which I have only used once for my
experiment in my 2nd year.
