In this workshop with Joachim Pietsch you will gain hands-on experience and will explore sensor-based interactive systems built with the Arduino microprocessor. You will build a breathalyzer using the MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor. The readings will be taken and visualised in Flash or Processing. Time to break out the Raki! No previous experience with electronics is required.

●    No previous experience with electronics is required.
●    Participants are required to bring their own laptops (Mac or PC). The maximum number of participants will be limited to 10 in order to obtain and prepare sufficient quantities of components. Please state if you require an Arduino UNO board (In Turkey these board can be purchased from http://www.robitshop.com/
●    The fee of the workshop 30 euro (excluding Arduino board) will cover all other required parts.

Bio of the Presenter

Joachim Pietsch

Since 1998 Joachim Pietsch has taught Programming, User Interface Design and Multimedia Applications  on a Computer Science degree in the Institute of Art Design and Technology, Ireland.


More recently he has developed a module in Physical Computing to allow students to go beyond the standard  WIMP interfaces and create systems and applications that react to environmental and biometric sensor-data.
