Controlling “Real” Light Bulbs (AC Controlling) with Arduino

Time/Date: Jan 24, 3 PM – 4:30 PM

Room: Meeting Room

Instructor: Yeseul Song


Have you wanted to control “real” light bulbs, not tiny LEDs? Have you been wondering how to control AC (Alternating Current) using Arduino? If so, this workshop is for you! The workshop will teach how to automatically turn on/off and dim incandescent light bulbs using Arduino. You will learn the easiest way to control light bulbs and how it works so you can use for your projects right away. Imagine you control light bulbs with music, movement, temperature, time, force, or your voice—any input you want! We will go over the basic electronics and Arduino programming for this project together. I will also briefly talk about different solutions you can adopt, including how to build a custom circuit board for controlling light bulbs.


Bring your curiousity and fresh mind. Feel free to bring your laptop, but not necessary.
