serial protocol, runs in standalone mode and as interface connected to
PC/Macintosh computers
• It is inexpensive, around $30 per board and comes with free authoring software
• It is an open-source project, software/hardware is extremely accessible and very
flexible to be customized and extended
• Arduino is backed up by a growing online community, lots of source code is
already available and we can share and post our examples for others to use, too!
