Topic: Tool for easy PC to Arduino communication for prototyping? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I'm curious if there's some software out there that provides an easily configurable GUI for modifying values in an Arduino sketch. For example, something that runs on a Mac or PC with some on-screen buttons and sliders that I can map to variables within my Arduino code. I'm imagining something meant not for the end result, but just a tool to help find the right values (like dialing in colored light just right).

I know this can be written from scratch in Processing or something similar, but I'm wondering if something already exists with this intent.

Thanks!

Have a look at Firmata. I haven't used it but it seems to be something like what you're looking for. The Arduino IDE installation includes the Firmata library for your Arduino and then there are various options for how to interface with the Arduino from your PC.

Not quite with buttons and sliders but designed in all other respects to do exactly what you want

Hope it helps,

I just created something along this line... a processing script for controlling 3 PWM outputs on an arduino that will be controlling one of the 5 meter RGB LED strips.

Take a look at my website www.jbsiemonsma.nl
The vba debug app could be usefull.

I just started with it but perhaps this could be a solution for you

I've not tried it but checkout http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-write-an-Ardulink-GUI-to-control-Arduino/
