Topic: transfer information from database to arduino (Read 557 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello!
For a school project, I need to use a database( I don't know which format yet xml? php?..)to collect information and send it to Arduino. Then, Arduino should turn on a light according to the data collected. There will be several conditions to take into consideration.
Do you know how to do it?
Thanks!!

If I do your project for you do I get your diploma?

No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)

Ahah maybe! This is not an important project, I'm a product designer and I would like to shape a project concretly.

The arduino end is easy.
The bit that takes some working out is how to transfer the spread sheet down the serial line to the arduino.
I would suggest you the free language called Processing to do this. You need to know what firm your database file is in.

The only part of your project that has an answer at the moment is, "Can I send info to an Arduino and have it turn on a light?"

The answer to that is "Yes".

The rest is up to you.
