Arduino is an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board.
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software on running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP, ).
The Arduino software consists of a development environment (IDE) and the core libraries. The IDE is written in Java and based on the Processing development environment. Its source code can be found in the app/ directory. The core libraries are written in C and C++ and compiled using avr-gcc and AVR Libc. Their source is in the hardware/ directory.
