Arduino is an open source electronic platform based on easy to use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button or a Twitter message - and turn them into an output - by turning on an LED, activating a motor, posting something online.
You can tell your board what to do by sending a series of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do this, the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino software (IDE), based on Processing are used.
Over the years Arduino has been the mind of thousands of projects, from everyday objects to complex scientific instruments. A worldwide community of makers - students, hobbyists, artists, programmers and professionals - has gathered around this open source platform, their contributions have added to an incredible amount of accessible knowledge that can be of great help to both beginners. than for experts.
Arduino was born at the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without training in electronics and programming. As it reached a larger community, the Arduino board began to change to accommodate new needs and challenges, differentiating its offering from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT, wearables, 3D printing, and embedded environments. All Arduino boards are completely open source, allowing users to build them independently and eventually tailor them to their particular needs. The software is also open source and is growing thanks to contributions from users around the world.
