Abstract

Even though Arduino has made creating products with electronics more accessible, a significant number of users still have difficulties with it. An online tool CircuitsMaster.com (CM), aiming make the design of electronics with Arduino faster and easier is presented in this paper. Three diverse needs of designers that wish to include electronics with Arduino in their projects are explained. CM uses a combination of end-user development paradigms to answer to these needs. Based on results from a user evaluation, those who used CM were significantly faster in creating typical electronics assignments when compared to subjects who did not use CM. Therefore, such tools seem to have a salient role to play for designers that wish to develop IoT products.
