  • Knowledge of PC standard interfacing and its opportunities with physical methods for measurement and control.
  • The acquisitions cards: structure, operation and implementation (Using the Python/Firmata Sofware and Arduino as an acquisition card).
  • Several examples of experimental manipulations are studied in order to characterize:
    - Digital Input/Output: Application to a Digicode Key
    - Software management tools via Python Firmata
    - Analog Input, and PWM Output: Application to DC Motor Control
    - Sequential Programming: Application to a Useless Box
    - Option: Use Sensor to control Machine(s)
  • User Interface using Tkinter (or ?)

  • Python programming basics.
  • Algorithms basics.
  • Electronic basics.
