Alone or attached to a computer, it creates interactive devices that can sense by taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors and can act by controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other outputs physical devices.

As one of the first Internet of Things (IoT) devices, it was created in 2005. It has been here from the very beginning of the IoT concept.

Arduino runs standalone or can communicate with software running on your computer (Java, JavaFX, Python, and so on) and the boards can be assembled by hand or purchased preassembled.

It is a fact that Arduino simplifies the process of working with microcontrollers. Also, it more lucrative than other systems for teachers, students, and interested amateurs, as it is inexpensive—an Arduino board cost less than $50.
