Annex B - Research Data

Arduino

An Arduino, which consists of two parts, the hardware and software, allows users to build close to anything. It is made to be connected to sensors which in turn feed it physical information to act upon. A diversity of sensors can be used, from something as straightforward as pressing a button or something as complicated as using an ultrasound to detect distance between two objects. When there is a change in readings or information, the Arduino will carry out the instructions it is programmed to do. (Charlie, 2008)

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn how computers work, how to manipulate the electronic world around them, and how to program. (Raspberry Pi foundation,2012)
