Register and Attend for a Chance to Win a Hardcover Book Featuring Better World Projects!

We will be Sending Out 5 Books for the Best Questions Asked!   

Join us beginning on the last day of Arduino Week for a workshop hosted by community member Enrico Miglino, who will walk us through a project he is working on for the Better World with Arduino project competition.   The focus of workshop will be a real world example of a project that uses a Nicla Sense ME board.  The series will conclude with workshop hosted by any community members who wish to showcase their Better World with Arduino project.  Throughout this series and the companion project competition, we'll have giveaways for sharing inspiring stories on how to make the world better with Arduino and for contributing to the learning and discussion from in each of the workshops.

We will begin with an introduction to the Nicla Sense ME board including a presentation of the board, the architecture and the components, interfaces, connectivity, programming how-to, and the AI and self-learning features.  The next session will focus on a Real-World applications using the Nicla Sense ME including drafting the project, a Multisensor on a single board for Van Monitoring and alarming, the circuit, solutions adopted, a use case from an example application, and notes on integration with other boards.  The final workshop will take place at the conclusion of the Better World with Arduino and include an invite for any members who wish to showcase their project.  Among the topics that will be discussed is any feedback from the challenge, a rundown of the most remarkable projects, presentations of projects from the invited guest hosts,  and a live winners announcement for the challenge.   

Bill of Material:

  • Tello Drone by DJI ( It is a small - mostly for indoor use - drone with some special characteristics: can fly in a storm of multiple drones (not shown in this use-case), connects via WiFi with a discrete range (about 100 m), can be programmed with Python via two UDP channels. Regardless of its reduced weight of about 90g, it has a payload of up to 80g. Another important aspect is that the Tello drone has 15 minutes of fly autonomy, more than sufficient to follow a complex path. Any other autonomous device can be used as well, like a wheeled robot.
  • Nicla Sense ME with a 3.7V battery assembled on top of the drone
  • Neuton AI is the ML AI platform we will use. You need just to register for free. An introduction to the platform and its usage will be part of the webinar. and
  • Arduino IDE platform
  • Python 3 running on a PC (ground control)
  • NodeJS installation
  • Go language Installation

Born in Turin, Italy. I have always had a special interest in electronics and communication. I had the chance to start working in the era of the first Personal Computers, just few years before their massive introduction, and very soon I started acquiring knowledge about hardware and software. I developed researches, patented hardware and software-integrated technologies, wrote technical articles on several technical papers in Italy and more. During the last decade I developed software and firmware for embedded devices, new products for Android, Mac and Linux. Before the Android massive diffusion, I had been developing software as Nokia developer focusing my experience on the Qt development platforms on desktops and Symbian devices. My approach to Electronics and circuit projects involving hardware and circuit creation is strongly oriented to microcontrollers, from small devices to the computer-like micro as the well-known ARM processors family. I definitely avoid two things: redundance (i.e. making projects more complex than can be done) and excess of complexity (i.e. a great solution should be simple and cheap, otherwise it is not a great solution). For this reasons I frequently rethink projects or create new ones in order to make products and prototypes market-affordable and as cheap as possible without compromising quality. Five years ago I moved to Ibiza (Balearic Islands, Spain) where I currently live and work. Furio Piccinini, born in 1976, is an IT developer and element14 Community Member. He loves web programming, which he started learning in the early years of Internet, and electronics. In recent years he focused on the Making world, embedded devices software and architecture. Furio is a passionate member of the Makers community and a fan of the DRY motto, don’t repeat yourself.
