Credits: 6 ECTS, 4 SWS
Date: Monday/ Montag 13:30 - 16:45
Venue: Marienstraße.5, Raum 201
First meeting: tba

Guiding Questions

How do machines sense their environment?

How can they act back on it?

What happens when traces of actions become the base of decisions?

Topics

This course teaches...

  • basics of electronics
  • Arduino-programming
  • a broad overview of easy to use sensors for pretty much everything you can think of
  • control of motors and more unconventional actuators.

Using these, participants should construct program driven agents that interact with physical environments.

Language

The course will be in English, unless all participants are speaking German.

Eligible Participants

Undergraduates and graduates enrolled in BfA+MfA MKMedienkultur/MGMediengestaltung →MKG, Media Architecture, FKFreie Kunst – a program at the faculty Gestaltung, VKVisuelle Kommunikation – a graphic design program at the faculty Gestaltung

Criteria for passing

In order to successfully participate you will have to:

  • regularly attend the sessions and participate
  • developme and document an experiment that relates to the topic

Application

Application deadline for this course will be October 14, 2016. NOTE: The application procedure may be subject to change due to our membership in the new faculty of Art and Design
