Building blocks with a wide range of modules
The well matched Tinkerforge modules allow experienced programmers to concentrate on the software, thus projects can be completed faster. A programming novice on the other hand has the possibility to learn programming with exciting applications by using the Tinkerforge building blocks.
No detailed knowledge in electronics necessary
The realization of a project with Tinkerforge is possible without troubles. You simply pick the required modules and connect them together with each other. There is no other electronics knowledge and no soldering needed.
For example: If the project is to control a motor dependent on a measured temperature, you just have to choose a temperature sensor and an appropriate motor controller out of the available Tinkerforge building blocks.
The Tinkerforge API offers intuitive functions, that simplify the programming. For example: It is possible to set the velocity of a motor in meters per second with a call of setVelocity() or to read out a temperature in degree Celsius (°C) with getTemperature().
