Sure I can handle this for you, what is the format of the serial stream to the processing application.

You can sent out a continuous stream and use the timers and some pin ints to do your counting of pulses on etc.

The serial stream would just pick up the current values and squirt them down the line for you.. If you keep the format brief then you can get a lot of data down the serial port at high speed.

Take a quick loot at my website and see the kind of projects I normally get involved in.

Then if you want to chat about your project more then drop me an email to or here on the forum

Cheers Pete.

Ha Ha .. excellent, but I still dont know what it is for ???

Nice Base BTW .. I Play (Base) too mainly rock blues with a bit of swing jazz for fun..

HI Richard, i have sent you an email to the address you cited.

Cheers Pete.

Hi Richard,

OK so what we have here is a basic call to a web page on the device that return the HTML that you have highlighted. I guess you need to be reading the incoming HTTP stream from the post/get query looking for a signature that tells you the start of the string you need to be looking for.

Once you have this then you want to display it value on a 2x20 LCD display.

You have 3 parts to this.

1. Ethernet connection to the device.
2. call to device and read incoming data stream
3. find key value unique token and display data values on LCD

I can do all this for you.

Do you have a budget in mind for this and what is your timescale.

Cheers Pete.

OK so firstly you need to be writing in English on the English speaking forum.

Once that is done we may be able to help you , you must however tell us a little more about the satellite receiver that you are interfacing to and what exactly you are trying to do with it.

Cheers Pete.

I can take this idea and create a product for you from it. I specialise in taking ideas from concept through to production ready products.

You requirement is fairly simple. Wifi can be achieved using the roving networks WiFly module and a reasonable cost, the rest is stock Arduino stuff, 2 line LCD for local readout connected through I2C would allow you to have it on the end of a wire so that it could be sealed up better from the environment.

The ultrasonic range finders in the cited project are quite expensive and there are cheaper alternatives available.

I see that you are only wanting 1 sensor in the system that makes the server simpler.

As far as WIFI is concerned you can either set the WiFly unit into ad-hock or infrastructure mode. If you want to have the data available all over the WIFI infrastructure and potentially the LAN and internet this is the way to go. However if you are only interested in reading it locally then ad-hock is the better option as it will not require authentication onto the WIFI router.

Pleas take a look at my website  where you can see the sort of projects that I normally take on. If you think I am a good match for your requirement or simply want to talk through your options please drop me an email to or a PM here on the forum.

Cheers Pete.

Your welcome and good luck. If you need to ask anything else dont hesitate.

Cheers Pete.

Hi Kris,

Thanks for the additional information. I am a little too busy with work at the moment to take this on. I am also not expert in either of the protocols that need to be spoken to make this work. If I was not busy then I would have taken it on as a learning exercise.

Thanks for the offer anyway.

If you have no luck here you might want to try or

Cheers Pete.

HI Kris,

Looking at the schematic for that shield is it using the internal UART on the MCU to communicate with and does not seem to have any jumpers to use a soft-serial port pin configuration. Are you planning on talking to more than one radio. If not then why do you need two shields. I should intention that they would not work together without the option to chose what pins to  use.

Next we will need to know if you are just wanting some sort of pass-through from the Vending machine to the radio or are you wanting to have some sort of protocol exchanging going on.

Cheers Pete.

This is already being done (well almost)  by this company Are you trying to do anything substantially different to this. Is your client end proprietary in some way ?

Could yo also expand on what WMX is in this context and if the serial is true RS232 or a TTL UART variant.

Cheers Pete.

Is the Blue Tooth BLE or old school BT. Most android tablets/phones dont support BLE.

Either war around the answer to you question si yes, and depending on the complexity of the type of control you want a relatively easy job.

You can set up some kind of command protocol to send over the BT and have the Arduino read and interpret it and take action on it.

Fell free to drop me a PM is you want to chat about his more. What is you budget for this job ?

Cheers Pete.
87  Community / Gigs and Collaborations / Re: Arduino Project Job Offer to write a sketch. on: June 11, 2014, 12:17:06 pm

So the first thing to mention is that you are not going to get a 975 Mhz from the system when it only at best has a 20Mhz Xtal

I am guessing that this is a typo.

I can help you with this code it is not complicated and is basically a closed loop control system.

There will need to be some dead zones in place to stop is oscillating around the change points.

Drop me a PM if you want to chat about this.

What is your timescale for this.

Cheers Pete.
88  Community / Gigs and Collaborations / Re: Job offer - need to have sensor added to sketech as an inerrupt with timer ect on: June 11, 2014, 12:11:03 pm
why not turn it around and use the edge trigger to reset a counter to 0 then use the timer to increment and test the counter ...

If it is > 1 then you have no interrupts for 2 x the timer interrupt time max interval

You can set your timer interrupt to 125 ms

If you need this code written up and integrated into your sketch drop me a PM and we can chat

Cheers Pete.

It seems we did not inspire the OP with greatness go here

No I am still working with him off forum.

The goal is to be able to manufacture a prototype that I can reproduce for under $50. So I'm seeking someone that can help me select the right parts. I would like to have it WiFi or blue tooth ready, as an option. However, the first prototype is very basic. It should handle two probes, 1 for food, 1 for temp. Also would like to see it be able to go as high as 800ºF.

OK so I can help you to get there taking ideas through to production is what i do. Check out my Website You can see there some of the Kickstarter projects I have helped people to move into production.

You can drop me an Email to if you want to take this private.

BLE is easy as there are BLE devices already out there strap a WIFLY unit to that and you have both.

Cheers Pete.
