The Stack Overflow podcast is back! Listen to an interview with our new CEO.

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Be sure to use the Arduino Stack Exchange for questions that are more Arduino and less robotics.

This tag should be used with any questions relating to the use of an Arduino in robotics applications. It should not be used for general programming questions (which are off-topic of this site). Be sure to use the Arduino Stack Exchange for questions that are more Arduino and less robotics.

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. Perfect for home appliances, prototyping, robotics, and more. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).
