1  Development / Other Software Development / Re: arduinodroid forum? on: September 02, 2014, 08:56:16 am
I also tried contacting support since I can't upload but very simple sketches
but my e-mail bounced back undelivered after few days. Not good... smiley-cry
2  Development / Other Software Development / Troubles uploading sketches with Arduinodroid on: August 30, 2014, 07:44:51 am

I tried to compile and upload simple sketches (LED blink and serial write) on a Arduino Nano board with Arduinodroid running on my ASUS tablet ok.
Then I tried with a more complex sketch for BMP085 pressure sensor (the example sketch from Adafruit with external libraries) and I was able to compile, but not to upload. Upload starts ok but did non complete successfully.
I tried using internal uploader, too with different delays in the range 50 to 1000 ms but in this case the upload doesn't start at all (unknown error).
Did anyone experience the same with Arduinodroid and could please help me? Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks a lot.
3  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino memory and android? on: August 30, 2014, 07:38:55 am
When I first connected my Arduino to the Android tablet it asked if I wanted Arduinodroid as default app for this. I think I said no, maybe you said yes and Android recorded somewhere Arduinodroid as default app, as you can do for PDF files, email, browser, ecc... Does it sound?

Arduinodroid project looks amazing, something I have been looking for since couple of years ago.
For the moment I installed and compiled some sketches ok.
Waiting for an Arduino nano board ( on the way to my home) to test uploading...
Should you discover updated news, please share.
5  Using Arduino / Sensors / Adafruit library and test sketch for BMP085 on: July 27, 2014, 08:45:37 am
I'm preparing to use the BMP085 sensor I have on the way to my postbox by installing the Adafruit library (I copied .h and .cpp files in the libraries folder) and compiling the test sketch. However, I have the compilation error as per the attached screenshot (I'm using ArduinoDroid on my ASUS tablet).
Anyone could please explain what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you so much.
6  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Servo resolution: which is the max possible? on: March 02, 2014, 05:39:51 pm
I have in mind a project for which I'd need very high resolution, say 0.125 degrees or less. I'm wondering if this can be obtained with servo directly connected to my mechanism or if I need additional gears to improve resolution. The former will add complexity...
Moreover, which is the limiting factor for resolution: the servo itself (in case, any suggestion for the choice?) or the way to control it?
I thought it was the servo, but apparently no RC servo manufacturer mentions the resolution in the specifications of his servos...
Many thanks.
7  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / Re: How much current through V_in and GND pins? on: September 26, 2012, 02:55:42 am
Does someone know if an extension cable for that "square" USB connector (don't know the name) exists?

You mean something like this panel mount, Female B to Male B, USB extension cable?

Right! This is exactly what I had in mind!
Many thanks, I'll see if I find something similar in Europe... otherwise I'll try ordering oversea. I know it would take 3-4 weeks, but could still be compatible with my development time (delivery for Crhsitmas!  smiley-razz).
Thanks to all.

Thanks a lot, good that I realised and asked before doing  smiley-wink
Soldering a wire could be a simple solution, but if possible, I'd like to preserve the Arduino board for other projects, so I'm thinking to realise my prototype on a breadboard shield. This is why I initially thought of using the V_in pin.
I'll move to a double connector, putting the Arduino board inside the box instead of right behind the planel. Mmmh... this means I also have to double the USB connector if I want to access it from outside. Does someone know if an extension cable for that "square" USB connector (don't know the name) exists?
9  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / How much current through V_in and GND pins? on: September 24, 2012, 08:43:38 am
I have to drive some high power LEDs (using TIP122 darlingtons), for a total current around 2 A on 12 V input. I'm wandering if I can drain this current from the V_in and GND pins of the Arduino Uno board, just connecting a 12 V supply to the Arduino board and using it to power both board and loads, or if there is a (lower than 2 A) current limitation on V_in. In the former case I presume I have to "duplicate" the power supply connection and provide current directly from supplier to loads, without using V_in pin...
Hope my question is clear enough.
Thank you very much for help.

P.S. There was a similar question here,16348.0.html but I don't think the answer given there is right since there should not be any regulator between supply and V_in on Arduino board. However, there is between supply and +5V (this was the answer) but that's a different story... My concern is mainly about burning some traces on the PCB with a current as high as 2 A or so.

Eccomi qua, mi chiamo Leonardo e quasi per caso mi sono imbattuto in Arduino mentre stavo cercando un modo per realizzare effetti di luce per il mio presepe. Adesso sono armato di una breadboard, una serie di LED bianchi ed RGB e qualche transistor, oltre ad una board Arduino Uno.
I primi risultati sono molto incoraggianti e nel frattempo mi sono realizzato anche un utile scatto remoto IR per la mia fotocamera (per quanto un po' fuori tema rispetto al presepe  smiley ).
Poi, essendo anche un eli/aeromodellista, chissà che ci scappi prima o poi anche un Ardupilot... smiley-wink
Solo il tempo (quello libero a disposizione, che non è mai abbastanza, oltre a quello del calendario) dirà cosa riuscirò a fare con Arduino.
Per ora ciao a tutti.

I vote for it. And ask all other mobile users to give their vote, too!
13  Development / Other Software Development / Re: Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Minolta IR Control Library on: July 17, 2012, 04:42:07 am
How can I manage the B exposure with my Pentax K100D Super? According to manual as far as the IR is “on” the shutter should remain open, but this is not the case with the library. I’m afraid the IR signal is given just “one shot”. Is this possible? Did anyone succeed in using the B on Pentax with MulticameraIR?
Thank you so much!
P.S. Some Pentax cameras may be configured such that the B works as “one shot opens – next shot closes”, unfortunately not mine
14  International / Generale / Posa B con multicameraircontrol e Pentax K10D on: July 17, 2012, 04:35:34 am
Qualcuno è riuscito a farla funzionare?
Purtroppo la K10D non permette di impostare
Grazie la posa B col doppio click per apertura e chiusura otturatore.
