i would like to display in Processing  through graph bars the values of  accel_x, accel_y, accel_z from Nunchuck? see the Arduino code below

can you help me?

Code: [Select]
#include <Wire.h>
#include <string.h>

#undef int
#include <stdio.h>

uint8_t outbuf[6]; // array to store arduino output
int cnt = 0;
int ledPin = 13;

void
setup ()
{
  beginSerial (19200);
  Serial.print ("Finished setup\n");
  Wire.begin (); // join i2c bus with address 0x52
  nunchuck_init (); // send the initilization handshake
}

void
nunchuck_init ()
{
  Wire.beginTransmission (0x52); // transmit to device 0x52
  Wire.send (0x40); // sends memory address
  Wire.send (0x00); // sends sent a zero. 
  Wire.endTransmission (); // stop transmitting
}

void
send_zero ()
{
  Wire.beginTransmission (0x52); // transmit to device 0x52
  Wire.send (0x00); // sends one byte
  Wire.endTransmission (); // stop transmitting
}

void
loop ()
{
  Wire.requestFrom (0x52, 6); // request data from nunchuck
  while (Wire.available ())
    {
      outbuf[cnt] = nunchuk_decode_byte (Wire.receive ()); // receive byte as an integer
      digitalWrite (ledPin, HIGH); // sets the LED on
      cnt++;
    }

  // If we recieved the 6 bytes, then go print them
  if (cnt >= 5)
    {
      print ();
    }

  cnt = 0;
  send_zero (); // send the request for next bytes
  delay (100);
}

// Print the input data we have recieved
// accel data is 10 bits long
// so we read 8 bits, then we have to add
// on the last 2 bits.  That is why I
// multiply them by 2 * 2
void
print ()
{
  int joy_x_axis = outbuf[0];
  int joy_y_axis = outbuf[1];
  int accel_x_axis = outbuf[2] * 2 * 2;
  int accel_y_axis = outbuf[3] * 2 * 2;
  int accel_z_axis = outbuf[4] * 2 * 2;

  int z_button = 0;
  int c_button = 0;

// byte outbuf[5] contains bits for z and c buttons
// it also contains the least significant bits for the accelerometer data
// so we have to check each bit of byte outbuf[5]
  if ((outbuf[5] >> 0) & 1)
    {
      z_button = 1;
    }
  if ((outbuf[5] >> 1) & 1)
    {
      c_button = 1;
    }

  if ((outbuf[5] >> 2) & 1)
    {
      accel_x_axis += 2;
    }
  if ((outbuf[5] >> 3) & 1)
    {
      accel_x_axis += 1;
    }

  if ((outbuf[5] >> 4) & 1)
    {
      accel_y_axis += 2;
    }
  if ((outbuf[5] >> 5) & 1)
    {
      accel_y_axis += 1;
    }

  if ((outbuf[5] >> 6) & 1)
    {
      accel_z_axis += 2;
    }
  if ((outbuf[5] >> 7) & 1)
    {
      accel_z_axis += 1;
    }

  Serial.print (joy_x_axis, DEC);
  Serial.print ("\t");

  Serial.print (joy_y_axis, DEC);
  Serial.print ("\t");

  Serial.print (c_button, DEC);
  Serial.print ("\t");

  Serial.print ("\r\n");
}

// Encode data to format that most wiimote drivers except
// only needed if you use one of the regular wiimote drivers

nunchuk_decode_byte (char x)

That code looks fine for sending data to the PC for Processing to use. What was your Arduino-related question.

sorry, my question was not clear.

i found an example to display simple analogue inputs using Processing software:

does anyone know the code to use in Processing to display the data from Nunchuck ?
