  • Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.
  • TETRA project provides business support to third parties awarding NGI open calls issued by NGI-TRUST, NGI0-PET, LEDGER, NGI0-DISCOVERY and by those projects who will be funded under H2020 call ICT-24-2019.
