How SAM is built up

SAM is made out of a base surrounded by a wooden casing. It was designed by one of our team members and decorated with the MAI logo by another. The base itself consists of the built-in sensors, an Arduino Uno and the radio module (NRF24L01) for communication and it is powered by a solar panel. … How SAM is built up weiterlesen
