Little Bird Electronics is proud to announce our first Arduino + Android Open Accessory Development Workshop.
University of Sydney Lecturer Justin Clayden, and Little Bird’s Marcus Schappi will be our workshop trainers.
All participants get to design and build their own Arduino + Android Open Accessory Development project.
Open Accessory Hardware (Arduino, and electronics components) are provided (for keeps) on the day.
What and why?
The Android Open Accessory Development Kit (ADK) provides an implementation of an Android USB accessory that is based on the Arduino open source electronics prototyping platform, the accessory's hardware design files, code that implements the accessory's firmware, and the Android application that interacts with the accessory.
Arduino boards are small physical computing platforms, consisting of a simple I/O board and an integrated development environment. Arduino’s can be used to develop stand-alone interactive objects or can be connected to software on your computer.
In this workshop we will have a look at the Arduino Uno, and how to use it with Android.
More information about Arduino can be found on the Arduino website.
In this one day intensive workshop you’ll learn the lay-out of the Arduino board, you’ll learn how to connect your Android device to it, and you’ll learn the basic programming skills needed for building your own Arduino application. All participants design and start their own Arduino + Android project.
You will be required to bring an Android phone & laptop to the class.
We will supply all Arduino + electronics materials required for the Workshop, but feel free to bring parts from your own projects which you need help with.
Justin Clayden and Marcus Schappi.
Art students, Computer scientists, hardware hackers – everyone is welcome.
•We will assume that you are familiar with programming for Arduino.
• Some technical affinity is required. Some experience in programming and electronics will is useful, but is not strictly necessary.
Your own Laptop Running Windows XP – Vista, Mac OS X 10.3-6, or Linux will be required.
Please preinstall the Arduino IDE & Android SDK before attending!
