Topic: Arduino+Processing and Arduino+Grasshopper, advice? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I am working on a project where sensor data gathered via Arduino causes some movement in an installation. I am in the process of making the actual mechanical piece now but I would like to create a digital simulation of the built work too.
So sensor data would be collected via the Arduino and instead of moving a physical structure, it would move a digital image. This would be interactive in real time. I intend to project the resulting image. Any suggestions on the best way to do this? Should I interface Arduino with Processing? Arduino with Grasshopper? I haven't done either before so I am not sure which would be best.
Any opinions on which would be easier? which would produce a better results?
Any other advice would be so appreciated!


I would go with the arduino / processing combination as there are lots of examples of processing changing displays and it is easy to read the serial port for data from an arduino.
