Boost Your Knowledge of Data Collection with Sensors

For working professionals, this course has ties to data science, engineering, prototyping, and manufacturing.

This course utilizes the Arduino platform to give learners an understanding of how data is collected from sensors. At the end of the course, students will be able to model and simulate metrics for their own Key Performance Indicator (KPI) dashboards.

Additionally, students interested in Connected Devices (Connected Factory) will gain a full understanding of how I/O work so that they can develop software-hardware systems for IoT/IIoT applications and custom prototypes.

Enhance Your Data & Decision-Making Skills

These are the goals you’ll achieve after this course:

  1. How to communicate & program an electronic controller (Arduino)
  2. How to wire analog and digital circuits to controllers
  3. How to select appropriate sensors to model particular data
  4. How to send data to output devices
  5. How to receive data from input devices
  6. How to use sensor data to make simple decisions
  7. How to display data visually and through output devices

By the end of this course, you should be very comfortable creating a simple circuit using a breadboard and developing programs in C (from scratch) to communicate with sensors.

Get the Kit for this Course

While you can take the course 100% online using the simulator, it’s always more enjoyable to build the physical circuit using a kit.

Buy the Learn Robotics Alpha Kit and have all of the components you need for both of our online courses.

Designed for Personal Enrichment & Development

This course is designed for Absolute Beginners. If you’re interested in electronics and programming, then you’re ready to take this course!

This course can be taken by learners ages 14+ who have little to no experience coding or working with electronics. We cover all of the fundamentals in this course. The only prerequisites that we highly recommend are basic computer and touch typing skills and an interest in working with electronics and software.

As a working professional, this course can boost your resume by giving you key skills in I/O, hands-on prototyping, Digital & Analog Sensors, Data Collection & Decision-making, and technical troubleshooting.

You’ll also have the added bonus of self-enrichment in the robotics field, without being tied to a full-time degree program. This will give you the straight-forward skills you need without the added stress of being in college.

If you’re a high school student, this course will give you the fundamental skills in electronics and programming and prepare you for careers in Electronics/Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, Robotics/Automation Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and more. 

Backed by Experience & Guided by National Education Standards

We’ve carefully curated this course based on gaps and hands-on skills required for the Robotics and Automation Industry.

After spending years as an Automation Professional, Liz designed this course to get learners up-to-speed with critical prototyping skills necessary to be successful in the robotics and electronics space.

In addition to real-world experience, this course aligns with National Education Standards including NGSS, Common-Core, CSTA, and Georgia Standards of Excellence. We’ve found that organizations in other states can easily align our content with their local standards as well.

Finish the Course & We’ll Be Your Reference!

Complete the course and earn 80% on our Final Quiz to earn a Certificate.

You’ll also become part of our Verified by Learn Robotics program, which means you can list Learn Robotics as a reference on your job application and resume.

If your future employer calls us as a reference check, we’ll verify you! Simple as that!

Course Access & Requirements

This course is taught 100% online, which means you’ll need a laptop computer (Mac or Windows) with admin rights to install software and a reliable Internet connection.

The course is self-paced, and we provide guidelines on how to pace yourself while learning online.

Students have 12 months to finish the course and can upgrade to lifetime access by contacting Liz directly. All learners in our Verified by Learn Robotics program will be enrolled in that program for life.

How to Get Help

We are available by email and live chat to help students with the course.

Students that need additional help can sign up for an appointment with Liz.

Wire Prototypes using Schematics

Reading electrical schematics and wiring diagrams might sound overwhelming.

The modules in this course break down how to interpret wiring diagrams, what the symbols mean, and how to translate that into a wired prototype. 

Gain Familiarity with Sensors & I/O

Sensors might be very confusing, but we walk you through the basics, starting with Inputs and Outputs (also known in tech-speak as “I/O”) and working our way through Digital and Analog signals.

If those terms are foreign to you, basically, we’ll teach you how to connect a device to the controller and talk to it with code.

Convert Ideas into Working Devices

We don’t just give you a bunch of projects to copy and paste the answers.

We guide you through a project start to finish and equip you with the process of starting from nothing and making a working electronic prototype.

Learn what components you need, how to wire up the circuit, and how to write code to communicate and make decisions with your sensors.

Liz explains stuff in a way that I understand better, even after paying for a four-year engineering degree. Must-take course if you’re trying to break through fundamental concepts without wasting a lot of time.
