Exercise 1: Programming Basics

Exercise 1 was designed to help students become familiar with their Arduino Nano microcontroller and the accompanying two motor chips that make up the AEV Controller. This exercise consisted of setting up the AEV Controller with the propellers, writing test code to practice Arduino programming basics, and uploading a program to the Arduino for the AEV to run. Additional information is available in the Progress Report for this exercise.

A glossary of function calls used for programming the AEV is included:
