Video Series: Particle.io Photon High School Robotics


#1

Finally got around to making a few videos (hoping for about 18 videos when it is done to cover my High School Robotics course). The youtube video link is at:

a00-intro An introduction to teaching robotics using the particle.io photon. Shows several student examples from June 2017.

a01-console Got ta love the console.

a02-voltage-divider Measuring 2 prong sensors

a03-DAC-to-ADC Using the DAC pins (A6, A3) to test the Analog read pins (A0 --> A5)

a04-SOS-programming A tiny bit of programming, more to build confidence than anything else.

a05-tinker speaks for itself

a06-web-app My flagship Photon and Raspberry Pi3 controlling web page, view it live at https://hpssjellis.github.io/particle.io-photon-high-school-robotics/ Plug in your Photon ID and Access token and activate your D7 LED now.

a07-mobile-App Convert a web page into a mobile app using Phonegap Build

a08-ifttt Control anything onthe internet with your Photon

a09-servo Operating a servo motor using an external power source, without destroying the photon.

a10-transistor Showing how to use a transistor to protect the photon from slightly higher amps and volts

a11-DC-motor-drivers using the Pololu Big motor driver To 24V Max and 12 Amp Max and the dual motor driver to 13.5 V max and 1.2 Amp Max

a12-stepper-motor-driver using the Pololu stepper and driver

a13-arduino using the photon to make a non-wifi Arduino

a14-serial-I2C using the Groove OLED

a15-serial-SPI using the amazing Pixy camera.

a16-serial-uART using a finger print scanner

Advanced: Using the Raspberry Pi3 on the Particle.io Cloud IDE and being able to control it using my web app.

Advanced: Web Sockets Is the Particle Cloud 1200 ms delay to slow for you? Try this using your own nodejs server to get a 10 ms delay

my IOT Rant Written in 2015 when I switched from just coding to robotics (I new very little about electronics)

No problem @KyleG making the videos helps me remember how to teach the stuff. Just finishing the introduction tonight.

Thanks for the likes.

The a00 intro is at https://youtu.be/bOPonnhGOUg?list=PL57Dnr1H_egsL0r4RXPA4PY2yZhOJk5Nr

It has several student examples:

Wifi OpenRC Formula 1

.

Wifi cell phone 2 axis holder

.

Wifi Mouse Trap

.

Wifi Hand and Glove

.

GPS and Acceleration tracker

.

Wifi RFID Tag Notifications

(Looks like in this image the photon has been removed)

.

Wifi Baby Duck

.

Wifi Racoon Motion Dector and Notifications
