About the Course

For many years now, people have been improving their tools, studying the forces of nature and bringing them under control, using the energy of the nature to operate their machines. Last century is noted for the creation of machines which can operate other machines. Nowadays the creation of devices that interact with the physical world is available to anyone. Our course consists of a series of practical problems on making things that work independently: they make their own decisions, act, move, communicate with each other and people around, and control other devices. We will demonstrate how to assemble such devices and programme them using the Arduino platform as a basis. After this course, you will be able to create devices that read the data about the external world with a variety of sensors, receive and forward this data to a PC, the Internet and mobile devices, and control indexing and the movement. The creation of such devices will involve design, the study of their components, the assemblage of circuit boards, coding and diagnostics. Along with the creation of the devices themselves, you will perform visualization on a PC, create a web page that will demonstrate one of your devices, and figure out how an FDM 3D-printer is configured and how it functions. Besides those keen on robotics or looking to broaden their horizons and develop their skills, the course will also be useful to anyone facing the task of home and industrial automation, as well as to anyone engaged in industrial design, advertising and art. The course does not require any special knowledge from the participants and is open even to students of upper secondary school. Programming skills and the level of English allowing to read technical documentation would be an advantage, but this is not obligatory. The entire course is dedicated to practice, so the best way for you would be to get hold of some electronics, follow the illustrated examples and experiment on your own.

Wow. What an informative course!! Although mostly in Russian, it is in Russian style. No nonsense. One can learn quite a lot if patient enough to learn via caption. Highly recommended.

Nice course about Arduino. But from week 3, the audio is also been translated in English. Since the translated text is available, able to finish the course. Anyways, Good

The course was really good, and the content covered is also amazing, but the issue is of the language, the first two weeks were poorly dubbed in English and after that, there was no dubbing, However I would Highly suggest this course to the people who spoke the language of the course.

the course started in English and suddenly we found that the later parts were conducted in Russian Language. This was disappointing . I had to complete my course just pausing and looking at the subtitles again and again.

The course is great and very insightful, but mid-way through the course, the videos are not translated to English although the description says that the course is available in English.

At first I loved the course, but from week 3 it changed to Russian only. It has english subtitles and the transcript is in english, but this is not what I signed up for. If I have to read only, i can find better tutorials elsewhere.

El contenido del curso es muy atractivo, las primeras dos semanas es interesante, sin embargo a la tercer semana, cuando ya no puedes cancelarlo, los videos son en idioma ruso, que aunque tienen traducción al inglés, no puedes hacer dos cosas al mismo tiempo, leer la traducción del idioma y ver lo que realiza el ponente en el video. También te envían al correo anotaciones en ruso, deberían especificar que el curso es en dicho idioma y las dificultades técnicas a las que te puedes enfrentar
