  abstract= "The success of the Arduino platform has made embedded
     programming widely accessible. The Arduino has seen many
     uses, for example in rapid prototyping, hobby projects, and
     in art installations. Arduino users are often not
     experienced embedded programmers however, and writing
     correct software for embedded devices can be challenging.
     This is especially true if the software needs to use
     interrupts in order to interface with attached devices.
     Insight and careful discipline are required to
     avoid introducing race hazards when using interrupt
     routines. Instead of programming the Arduino in C or C++ as
     is the custom, we propose using occam-\π as a language as
     that can help the user manage the concurrency introduced
     when using interrupts and help in the creation of
     modular, well-designed programs. This paper will introduce
     the Arduino, the software that enables us to run occam-\π
     on it, and a case study of an environmental sensor used in
     an Environmental Science course."
