Abstract Title: W05 - Arduino: PID-controlled thermostat
Abstract: This workshop will show a simple application of Arduino microcontrollers to solving a common Advanced Lab apparatus problem: regulating the temperature of an oven via modulating the current supply to its resistive heating elements using a PID-controlled feedback algorithm. Consistent with the experience of the presenter, this workshop will be given from the perspective of starting with zero knowledge of Arduino design or programming, and proceeding to a working device without ever becoming and expert.
