Arduino Micro-Controlled Lighting

Student Works, Teaching

In this second year product design studio my students developed environmentally reactive lighting fixtures using Intel Galileo Micro-controllers and Arduino. The work explored the integration of environmental issues in the development of both the design and a functioning prototype. I assisted the students in writing code to control their various designs which engaged motion, acoustic, light and touch sensors and enabled the students to develop basic electrical wiring skills as well introduced them to digital fabrication technologies including CNC milling, laser cutting and 3D printing.
