Ok cool, I like that idea. Now, looking at the Wire library, my question is this, say I had a master arduino, and then a servo attached to a slaved arduino. If i wanted to send a move command to the servo, does it have to be translated into binary or anything, or do i just pass the code as usual. Thanks again for the help and ideas
Passing the code from the master to slaved arduino, would i basically:- Send code to the master arduino to turn servo A to position 90- Have master arduino take that command and parse it into a simple string easily sent via serial (i.e., "a90")- send that command via the Wire library to the slaved arduino- slaved arduino acts- slaved arduino sends a "operation complete" codeI'm making this up as I go, i've never used the Wire or Serial libraries (apart from using serial to sent text to the debugger). Thanks!
Hello all-So I've been playing around with my Arduino for a few months now, and I love the thing. However, I think I'm ready to move onto bigger things. I want to learn how to basically wire my netbook to a roomba and drive it, or basically use a computer to replace the arduino. I guess I'm looking to head into more professional applications (by no means am I slighting the Arduino, I love them, and own 3). What is my next step? I've tried googling it, but I can't find what my next step should be. What's the programming language, whats the UI, whats the board that I'll plug into my computer to interface with servos? Can I use it with LabView? So many questions, any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I'm starting an education in the robotics industry, and would love to learn where I should focus, and where to start. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
AVR-GCC is embedded in the Arduino IDE. If you want to bypass the Arduino stuff, you might go over to the avrfreaks forum and ask there.
