Wireless + Arduino + oF [Tutorial] by Joshua Noble aka @factoryfactory In the last tutorial we used an openFrameworks application to control a process running on an Arduino board. In this tutorial we’re going to reverse that and use an Arduino board to control an openFrameworks application that’s playing back music and we’ll do it wirelessly and (relatively) inexpensively. The electronics in this tutorial are a little more involved than the previous one because we need an oF application to control and two Arduino controllers: one to send transmit data and one to receive data and communicate with the oF application. There are a whole bunch different ways to do wireless communication that we’ll outline in the section below on wireless but for this tutorial, to mitigate the cost of requiring two Arduinos, I’m going to use inexpensive Radio Frequency (RF) components to send and receive the data. RF components tend to be around $10US for a transmitter and receiver pair and have a range of about 150 meters outdoors.
ArduinoXbeeShield NB : This page refers to a deprecated product. Information on the current Wireless Shield can be found here Overview The Xbee shield allows an Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It is based on the Xbee module from MaxStream. The module can communicate up to 100 feet indoors or 300 feet outdoors (with line-of-sight). Rugged Audio Shield 3.5mm stereo Headphone Out connector for playing audio files from a microSD card (16-bit mono/stereo WAV), from the Line In or Mic In connectors, or directly from the Arduino (over SPI) 3.5mm stereo Line In connector for recording to a microSD card (16-bit mono/stereo WAV), creating pass-through audio effects (to Headphone Out), or streaming audio directly to the Arduino (over SPI) 3.5mm mono Mic In connector for audio input from standard electret condenser microphones. This audio source can be used instead of Line In for all functions (recording, pass-through effects, streaming to Arduino). It can also be configured for “Karaoke Mode”, that is, mixed with the left Line In channel to mix Line In+Mic.
ETH - IDSC - Flying Machine Arena The Flying Machine Arena (FMA) is a portable space devoted to autonomous flight. Measuring up to 10 x 10 x 10 meters, it consists of a high-precision motion capture system, a wireless communication network, and custom software executing sophisticated algorithms for estimation and control. The motion capture system can locate multiple objects in the space at rates exceeding 200 frames per second. While this may seem extremely fast, the objects in the space can move at speeds in excess of 10 m/s, resulting in displacements of over 5 cm between successive snapshots. This information is fused with other data and models of the system dynamics to predict the state of the objects into the future.
Arduino With L298N Based Dual Motor Controller The ControllerA motor controller is a device that serves to govern in some predetermined manner the performance of an electric motor. A motor controller might include a manual or automatic means for starting and stopping the motor, selecting forward or reverse rotation, regulating the speed and torque, and protecting against overloads and faults. This Dual Motor Controller is easy to use, thank's to the L298N motor driver chip. This chip allows for direct drive of two bi-directional DC motors, and incorporates high-speed short diodes for protection.
arduino meets processing - PUSHBUTTON The Arduino meets Processing project intends to make it as easy as possible for anyone to explore the world of physical computing. All you need is an Arduino board as well as the Arduino and Processing software, which you can download on their project websites. On this website we explain how to: set up electronic circuits with various kinds of sensors, control and measure the sensors with the Arduino board, send the data to the computer, and use the received values to generate computer graphics with Processing. For all examples you need some basic electronic equipment such as a breadboard, resistors, the sensors, and some wires. The following sensors are dealt with on this website: 2.8 TFT Touch Shield for Arduino [2.8] ID: 376 - $59.00 We've discontinued this version of the shield (which was expensive and difficult to make) and replaced it with a version 2: its got a better price, uses way fewer pins, is Mega/Leonardo compatible and has a great touchscreen controller built in. Wow! Check it out here. Spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card connection. This TFT display is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240x320 pixels with individual pixel control.
Garduino Upgrade, Now with more Twitter! A couple months ago I came across two great instructables. The first was the Garduino, an arduino controlled garden to help you grow plants at home. The second was the Tweet-a-Watt, a project that teaches you how to monitor your home power usage using Xbees and Twitter. BaronPilot Arduino based copilot autostabilizer with Nintendo Wii component (tricopter, quadcopter) This is a program to stabilize a multicopter (copilot), runs on microcontroller like Arduino or Teensy++ and only a wii motion plus, no other electronics needed. These project started April, 2010. Supported are planes, tricopter, quadricopter (+ and x config), hexacopter (penta and coaxial). The self-leveling capability helps when doing FPV (first person view). 19 Oct 2011 Look at the new quadricopter shop .
NetIO Controller Here are some examples of hardware which has been used with this app. If you want to test your hardware and write a small tutorial about it, please ask for a promotion code to get the app for free. Also, many users have submitted their projects including instructions and configurations. See the project page to get inspired. Server / PC The Ultimate Protoshield for Arduino and Netduino -The MakerShield! The MakerShield kit If you've ever done any breadboarding, you know that it's great for sketching out an electronics idea, but terrible at storing a more permanent prototype. In the same way, fixing mistakes on soldered protoboard can be frustrating and messy. The Arduino design strikes a great balance between these two options by exposing the pins of the microcontroller on top of the board in four female headers. Using these, you can snap in pre-made daughterboards, or shields, to add different applications.
How send data from Arduino to Google Docs Spreadsheet A very interesting feature of Arduino is the great avalaibility of library that make the developer work very simple and fast. Make a Web Server, a Web Client or post a Tweet haven’t difficulty. Try to do the same application with the Microchip’s Stack TCP/IP….
