We´ve already achieved to link the Arduino with Visual Basic
We kind of expend most time of our last year´s semester on studying the Arduino´s platform, and that meant we had to write a lot of programs. One of the things they taught as was linking Arduino to Visual Basic.QUOTE
Does this mean that you can send data to the Arduino, and make it do things? If so, post the VB code and Arduino code, so we can review it.
Basically yeah. Our last year global project was to write a program in VB and with Arduino connected to a PC via USB, make it start an electric three-phase engine in one way and reverting the rotation (first stopping the engine, then reverting). I gotta find the code though, I know I have it somewhere else
because I need it in order to write the new code applied to this new project we have in mind. I´ll post it here as soon as I find it!QUOTE
Does this mean that you want the Arduino to send data to the VB application? What data is the Arduino sending? Or, is the problem that it is not sending anything?
Ok, this is the complicated part of the new project. What we are attempting is kind of ambitious from our point of view.
We are building a scale model of a sports center with soccer and volleyball fields. On those fields, there are gonna be some sensors which mission is to tell us if the ball is inside the field, or outside and depending on that answer, send a signal to some multicolor led diodes showing a color depending on the action of the player. This is only one of the things we want to do. Therefore, those sensors need to communicate with the VB app, so we can build a software according to our needs displaying that info in some kind of technical mode only for technicians.
Hope this is better to understand for you guys! Thanks
