  • Here are twenty amazing Arduino projects that you almost wouldn't believe, if not for that they are the real deal. These authors have turned their wildest dreams into reality with the power of Arduino, an easy-to-use microcontroller development board. It is no wonder that Arduino literally translates to 'Strong friend (masculine)' in Italian. Anything is possible with the mighty power of Arduino. It's compact, it's straightforward, and makes embedding electronics into the world-at-large fun and easy. Check out some of these amazing projects, and get inspired to build your own reality.

Contemporary business and science treat a project (or program) as any undertaking, carried out individually or collaboratively and possibly involving research or design, that is carefully planned (usually by a project team[citation needed]) to achieve a particular aim.[1]

An alternative view sees a project managerially as a sequence of events: a 'set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period and within certain cost and other limitations'.[2]

A project may be a temporary (rather than permanent) social system (work system), possibly constituted by teams (within or across organizations) to accomplish particular tasks under time constraints.[3]

A project may be a part of wider programme management[citation needed] or an ad hoc structure.

Note that open-source software 'projects' (for example) may lack defined team-membership, precise planning and time-limited durations.


The word project comes from the Latin word projectum from the Latin verb proicere, 'before an action' which in turn comes from pro-, which denotes precedence, something that comes before something else in time (paralleling the Greek πρό) and iacere, 'to do'. The word 'project' thus originally meant 'before an action'.

When the English language initially adopted the word, it referred to a plan of something, not to the act of actually carrying this plan out. Something performed in accordance with a project became known as an 'object'. Every project has certain phases of development.

Formal definition in the project-management realm[edit]

A project consists of a concrete and organized effort motivated by a perceived opportunity when facing a problem, a need, a desire or a source of discomfort (e.g., lack of proper ventilation in a building). It seeks the realization of a unique and innovative deliverable, such as a product, a service, a process, or in some cases, a scientific research. Each project has a beginning and an end,[4]and as such is considered[by whom?] a closed dynamic system.[citation needed] It is developed along the 4 Ps of project management: Plan, Processes, People, and Power (e.g., line of authority).[citation needed] It is bound by the triple constraints that are calendar, costs and norms of quality,[5]each of which can be determined and measured objectively along the project lifecycle.[citation needed] Some projects produce some level of formal documentation, the deliverable(s), and some impacts, which can be positive and/or negative.[6]

Specific uses[edit]

School and university[edit]

A project is an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and researched about by students. At schools, educational institutes and universities, a project is a research assignment - given to a student - which generally requires a larger amount of effort and more independent work than that involved in a normal essay assignment. It requires students to undertake their own fact-finding and analysis, either from library/internet research or from gathering data empirically. The written report that comes from the project is usually in the form of a dissertation, which will contain sections on the project's inception, analysis, findings and conclusions.[7]

Project management[edit]

In project management a project consists of a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result.[8] Another definition is: a management environment that is created for the purpose of delivering one or more business products according to a specified business case.[9] Projects can also be seen as temporary organization.[10]

Project objectives define target status at the end of the project, reaching of which is considered necessary for the achievement of planned benefits. They can be formulated as SMART criteria:[11] Projects are oftern guided by a steering group.

  • Specific
  • Measurable (or at least evaluable) achievement
  • Achievable (recently Agreed to or Acceptable are used[by whom?] regularly as well)
  • Realistic (given the current state of organizational resources)
  • Time terminated (bounded)

The evaluation (measurement) occurs at the project closure. However a continuous guard on the project progress should be kept by monitoring and evaluating.

Civil and military construction and industry infrastructure[edit]

In civil, military and industry (e.g. oil and gas) infrastructure, capital projects refer to activities to construct and install equipment, facilities and buildings. As these activities are temporary endeavors with clear start and end dates, the term 'project' is applied. Because the results of these activities are typically long-standing infrastructure, with a life measured in years or decades, these projects are typically accounted for in financial accounting as capital expenditures, and thus they are termed 'capital projects'.

Computer software[edit]

In computersoftware, a project can consist of programs, configuration definitions and related data.[citation needed] For example, in Microsoft Visual Studio a 'solution' consists of projects and other definitions.[12]

State project[edit]

It can be defined as 'a set of state policies and/or agencies unified around a particular issue or oppression'.[13] Therefore, these kinds of projects involve constant change and dynamism due to the social constructions evolve among time. State projects have to adapt to the current moment. They are mostly community services based.let lun1: number;let lun2: number;lun1=200lun2=200cansol.log(lun1 + lun2);


Some analyses of project-oriented activity distinguish - using military-style terminology - between grandiose strategic projects and more trivial or component operational projects: tactical projects.[14][15]

Notable examples[edit]

  • Human Genome Project which mapped the human genome
  • Manhattan Project, which developed the first nuclear weapon
  • Polaris missile project: an ICBM control-system
  • Apollo program, which landed humans on the moon

For the purpose of a feasibility analysis, a project is a concrete and organized effort that leads to the realization of a unique and innovative deliverable, which can be a product, service or process, or even a science research initiative, which is conceived based on a perceived opportunity. The project has a beginning and an end, which can sometimes serve as a new bedrock for a different project. It involves a plan, some processes, people and a line of authority; it contains inherent challenges and problems.

Organizations can be good at tactical projects, such as moving to a new building or introducing a new product. These are projects that have one operational goal, which probably does not entail contributions by most employees within the organization. In these projects, meeting a tactical goal on time and within budget are key considerations. A strategic project, on the other hand, has a primary goal of gaining the competitive advantage by focusing on the organization's overall direction.
