You live in an age when collaboration between people and machines is fundamental to work and play. Daily life is full of human-machine interactions. Yet many of us don't understand the fundamentals of how these machines -- fusions of software and hardware -- work. Designed explicitly for people with no electrical, mechanical, or computer engineering training, this class will give you the fundamentals of:
- Machine sensing - the eyes and ears of devices.
- Information processing - turning raw data into useful observations.
- Actuation - turning information into action.
We will build real machines that do real things using Arduino kits. That is the best way to learn.
