Hi everyone  :),

I'm a new user, so nice to meet you! (sorry for my english)

I have a question for you... so, is it possible use ultrasonic ping sensor directly in processing with Arduino Library?
Someone has already done it?

I prefer not use (if its possible) the serial port.

Thank you very much to everybody and have a nice day!

Leo.

Which Arduino library are you referring to? Not the Firmata one, I hope. If you are, the answer is no.

That's how Processing and Arduino communicate. If you don't want to use the serial port, you can't communicate.

Yes, I was referring to the Firmata library...so I have to use serial communication....
I thought it was possible to use Firmata library for this kind of sensor.

Really thank you for your answer.

Firmata turns the Arduino into a mindless moron. The ping sensor requires something with some intelligence to drive it.

Why do you want to use Firmata? Develop your own protocol; you'll learn a hell of a lot.

Yes! Maybe u are right!

I will try to do some new protocol :D !
:)

thanks
