1  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Arduino Diptrace PCB file for project on: December 01, 2012, 06:21:43 pm
There is a free version with certain limitations such as board size (which shouldn't be a problem).

If you want to have a '5' displayed then you need to use Serial.print(5, DEC) to display it as a decimal.

Can you please post all of your code (in code tags).
5  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Help combining 2 sketches so they run at once on: November 29, 2012, 09:10:32 am
Writing a flow chart of your final sketch may help you see what you need to happen when. Also, putting different pieces of code into functions will help you write the code using the flowchart as a guide and should result in cleaner and better code.

Yep sorry that's it. I found it by messing around with the pretty buttons smiley-wink

Up in the top toolbar is a white symbol saying 'scr'. Press it and double click on the file that says bitmap import (or similar) and the dialog boxes will talk you through it .
8  Topics / Product Design / Re: Adding copper images in Eagle on: November 27, 2012, 06:37:18 am
There is a script in Eagle for inserting bitmaps. Set it to the correct layer and it's all done.
9  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: 3 x GND on Arduino ADK on: November 27, 2012, 05:41:18 am
The GNDs are common. They are all connected and can all be used for either 5V or 3.3V.

What LED are you using at the moment?
11  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Serial Monitor doesnt want to appear. on: November 26, 2012, 09:42:12 am
Certain Bluetooth adapters can cause issues with the serial monitor so make sure there isn't one plugged in.
12  Topics / Robotics / Re: Servos and Buttons on: November 17, 2012, 05:26:26 am
You just need to write those actions into functions:

Code:
void servoAction1(){
   myServo1.write(90);
   delay(200);
   myServo1.write(50);
   delay(200);
   myServo1.write(180);
}

void servoAction2(){
   myServo1.write(angle1);
   delay(200);
   myServo1.write(angle2);
   delay(200);
   myServo1.write(angle3);
}

Read the states of the switches. Test them and then call the appropriate function.

I think what you are trying to achieve is having a button (switch) press make a certain set of servo actions happen. First start by setting up the servos by attaching them and setting the start positions [in setup()]. Then set the actions (say a switch press) to a set of actions using a function such as:

Code:
void servoAction1(){
   myServo1.write(90);
   myServo2.write(100);
}

and call it by putting:

Code:
...
void loop(){
   switch1State = digitalRead(switch1);
   if(switch1State == 1){
      servoAction1();
      delay(500);
   }
}

Look up switch polling to read inputs without 'blocking' other code. Also read up on how to write functions as they make programming in Arduino language/C++ much nicer.

Hope this helps  smiley-lol

Can you be more specific? Sparkfun has some Biometric sensors and should have some project links https://www.sparkfun.com/categories/146
