 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,

it´s a great project. I found it by searching "Arduino" in the Google Play (Market) ;-)

Because i already have a bluetooth modem, i directly tried to get it work. But my Problem is, that i can´t connect to the arduino board.

Could someone please tell me, how to connect this http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10268 Modem to my Arduino Uno?

I already tried to change the baud rate and to change the tx/rx between the modem and the arduino board.

Many thanks
Poldi

Hello, arduino-lovers.

Good news for you: now you can control Arduino board using Android speech input (speech recognition).
For this, just say pin, pin mode and pin value, f.e. "six high" as in demo video:
which means "set pin 6 to digital output mode with HIGH value".

Hello, everybody.

I'm happy to announce that now ArduinoCommander supports connection via Ethernet shield and supports any screen dimensions, any ratio (16:9, 4:3, etc).

Hello again)

USB support is implemented:

No special sketches are required for USB support, only StandardFirmata.
USB baud rate is configurable in app's settings.

Nothing special, just works:

Hi 4ntoine,

your app is great however, I can't seem to make it work with my bluetooth module (this one http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1pcs-TTL-Bluetooth-Module-with-adapter-board-for-arduino-free-connecting-cable?item=280926037720&cmd=ViewItem&_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D5%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D1055455930564002769#ht_1401wt_952).

I tried changing the baud rate but to no avail. Moreover the app sometime freezes on the phone (samsung galaxy giò - android 2.3).

I am sure the bluetooth module is working and connected correctly because I tried this http://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-Control-arduino-by-bluetooth-from-PC-pock/ and it worked perfectly.

Is the module not compatible or maybe it's the phone?

Hi, erFiodena.
It seems that I am using the same bluetooth module.
Try to set baud rate for the module using AT+ commands at hardware level.

Glad that it helped

Thanks  smiley-wink
I also test on Galaxy Ace (320x480, android 2.3.6), Galaxy Tab (1024x600, android 2.2.1) and Galaxy Tab 2 (1280x800, android 4.0.4) using wide range of connection types: Bluetooth, USB, Ethernet, so ArduinoCommander can be called "swiss knife for Arduino"  smiley

Hi, I have the issue that is talked about in the tutorial, the PWR LED lights up but the board stays grey.  smiley-cry I have a seeedstudio BT Shield and from what I see the Baud rate for that shield is 38400. I don't know how to use AT+ commands so I tried following the steps on "Paul's Blog" mentioned on the tutorial. (Found here: http://www.lostntranslation.com/arduino-electronics-fun/arduinocommander-and-the-aurdinobt/comment-page-1/#comment-22 I have downloaded the old version of Arduino (0017) and have tried to upload the standardfirmata code with the correct baud rate. When I verify (or compile doesn't matter) I get this message at the bottom of the screen:
Code:
java.io.IOException: Target platform: "null" not found.
Make sure that "build.target" in the
preferences file points to a subdirectory of
C:\Users\Ryan\Downloads\arduino-0017\arduino-0017\hardware\cores
at processing.app.debug.Target.<init>(Target.java:49)
at processing.app.Editor$43.run(Editor.java:1751)

at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(Unknown Source)
I don't know what it means and don't know what to do to fix it. Can you please help?

Hi 4ntoine,
You make a great job !!!!!!
Is it possible to have the source of the android app, or just the firmata ethernet implementation.
I can't see the update in https://github.com/4ntoine/Firmata

Thanks

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

wow this seems like a dream app!
I'm trying to use it with a Yarvik 224 tablet smiley-cool, running Android 4.0.3
it's not rooted, but I'm pretty sure that the usb host feature works fine (I can read usb flash drives, connect to mouse/keyboard etc)
I'm uploaded the modified Firmata which I got from your website (StandardFirmata9600.zip) to my Arduino Uno through IDE version 1.0.1, selected 9600 for baud rate from the menu of the application, however my Uno doesn't appear in the Usb devices tab. I'm using the apk I found here https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/tokyohackerspace/Bs4kwrXSJOg, by the way.

Maybe it's an old version? I can't make Google Play work on my tablet, so I can't install the ArduinoCommander app from the official site. Is there a direct link for the last version of the apk? And is there something I could do further to see why my connection fails (eg look as some log files etc).

anyway, it's a great app I hope its development continues
cheers

Hello. ArduinoCommander will not work without Google Play installed and it can be installed from Google Play only.
