How to "Multithread" an Arduino via Protothreading to execute more than one task at once without interruption

Arduino's great, but it is not easy to handle more than one task at the same time, and if you want to do two (or more) things at once at separate intervals? You'll need protothreading!

This Course teaches you something you may have wanted to do during your prototyping career, coaxing a single-core Arduino to do 3 things at once. In this case

  • Pulsing a signal without interruption

  • Incrementing a variable every second and writing it to the display without interruption

  • Displaying different messages every few seconds and writing them to the display without interruption

Welcome to this course.

In this course, you will learn Protothreading which is a way of performing what would normally be a multitasking operation (doing two or more things at once or at different intervals) on an Arduino. In other words, it's "multithreaded"! and since the Arduino is a single-core chip, multithreading itself is impossible. Then how on earth will we do that! the answer is Protothreading!!

Advantages of Protothreading

  • Reactive systems – constantly monitoring

  • More responsive to user input

  • The CPU can handle multiple inputs simultaneously

  • Can take advantage of parallel processing

  • Better memory Management

  • A thread can execute concurrently with other threads within a single process.

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include football, biking, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge football fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. In 2012, I graduated with my Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering at Azhar University - one of the top schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make Embedded Systems project using Arduino, PIC Microcontroller and other modules. After graduating, I worked at My own university as a Teacher Assistant . I followed that stint with a contract at a local College where I discovered how amazing it is to share your knowledge offline, which made me eager and eventually found myself starting my own online learning journey. I helped more than 100k student since then. Most recently. Throughout this time I built my Educational Engineering School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. Now I only do things I love each day. I want to show you how to be a better Embedded System creator, make money from your skills, and live the life you dreamed of.
