Simulation of Electronics ~ THINKERCAD

The IR 4.0 promote IoT to the next mandatory level where the deployed nodes are usually consist of sensors and a controller. So, how do we deploy a working controller with sensors and getting live data from it?

All we need to begin is the controller setup, in this tutorial, we will be using Arduino. Sometimes, it is difficult for those without practical experience and start using it with imaginations. So, we will introduce a simulation tool ~ THINKERCAD which you just need a web browser.

" Tinkercad is a free online collection of software tools that help people all over the world think, create and make. We’re the ideal introduction to Autodesk, the leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. " --- THINKERCAD

Let's start by signing up an account >> SIGN UP
Once, you are done, simply create a NEW Circuits Project, start playing with the components. 

Below are the example for the setup which you could test and understand the back end process.

Drag the following items to the board:
  1. Arduino UNO
  2. LED
  3. Piezo
  4. Multimeter
Once, you had done the hardware design, you can simulated it with simple coding by using code blocks or code text by doing simple programming syntax. You can also view the codes in 2 modes where it come with blocks and text and you could easily learn the coding as you run more experiments.

You can also publish you works by simply click the share button and it will generate a URL of your work, which allow collaborators to  contribute in your existing work or otherwise you can back to your project page and generate access URlL, which can be accessed by anyone with the URL or search through the projects page. Below are the link of above simulation >> CLICK HERE or simply view the embed windows below:

Please stay with us, there will be more simulation electronics, IoT projects, Arduino's designs in the coming post. Feel free to share this article around and do like & follow at our Facebook page.
