Arduino by Mind Map: Arduino

1. Arduino refers to an open-source electronics platform or board and the software used to program it.

2. The Arduino hardware and software was designed for artists, designers, hobbyists, hackers, newbies, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino can interact with buttons, LEDs, motors, speakers, GPS units, cameras, the internet, and even your smart-phone or your TV!

3. types of boards:

3.1. Arduino Uno (R3)

3.2. LilyPad Arduino

3.3. RedBoard

3.4. Arduino Mega (R3)

3.5. Arduino Leonardo

4. arduino programing language

5. Backgrounds: In 2005, in Ivrea, Italy, a project was initiated to make a device for controlling student-built interactive design projects that was less expensive than other prototyping systems available at the time. One of the cofounders, Massimo Banzi, named this piece of hardware Arduino in honor of Bar di Re Arduino (In 1002, King Arduin became the ruler of the Italy. Today, the Bar di Re Arduino, a pub on a cobblestoned street in town, honors his memory), and began producing boards in a small factory located in the same region as the computer company Olivetti.
