Abstract

Sensors in exhibits offer myriad possibilities. This mini-workshop will explore using the popular Arduino microcontroller to sense users in a gallery space. This might take the form of switches, motion detection, automated counters, or audio control to enliven and enhance experiences in the gallery. Arduino interfaces seamlessly with ethernet, video, audio, and flash, allowing easy and exciting ways to trigger sensors from different locations.

Arduino is an open-source microcontroller supported by a vast community of designers, artists, and do-it-yourself (DIY) enthusiasts of all kinds. This mini-workshop will demonstrate some simple sensors and provide a place for brainstorming for new implementation ideas.
