2019S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 semester hours, course number S00598


This course is aimed at beginners who never worked in the field of physical computing.

Attendants will learn how to work with the Arduino Platform.

The goal this semester will be to develop a device that visualizes deviation of current weather data from historical data and thus might make climate change more visible.

The form of this visualization will have to be determined by the class in the course of the semester.


• Overview over the Arduino Platform

• Basics of programming Arduino

• Working with sensor data

• Controlling LEDs, Displays, etc.

• Powering Devices


If necessary I will give this course in English.

Key Words

Arduino, Physical Computing, climate change, Klimawandel, Device Art, Critical Engineering, Elektronik, Electronics
