AVR® IoT Home Automation Weather Clock #3 Adding Precise Stepping to the Boards Firmware

This is the third and final video in the Home Automation – Weather Clock Series. It builds upon the “Getting Started with the Home Automation Kit” videos but can be viewed as standalone.
The Weather Clock is a clock having weather instead of time on the clock face. It uses the AVR®-IoT WG Board and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to achieve this.
The focus of this series is on the cloud implementation, and how to get started it into your IoT applications. Please see the User Guide linked below for a thorough and written explanation of the design and implementation.

Topics Covered in this Video

* Theory on stepper motor and how the step angle is considered in the design
* Modular arithmetic for circles. Used to calculate shortest distance for a clock-hand
