Just want to ask the feasibility of something I need to do.
I have a device which will output packets at a sampling rate between 1Hz and 256Hz (I’ll decide and select a rate when known). What I need to do is receive these packets wirelessly (Bluetooth), perhaps process them (or just forward them as they are), and send them to an analogue input of another device.
I hope to do this with an Arduino Uno and a Bluetooth shield. I want to be able to use a laptop to connect and receive the Bluetooth packets from my device via the Arduino/Bluetooth shield (this can use the USB cable, I only need BT between the device and the Arduino), and then output them via the analogue outputs on the Arduino so that I can plug them into the analogue input for this other device (also using wires).
Is this possible? Can I collect the packets using the Arduino and forward them on as I plan? How difficult would this be? The device will never be more than 10m away, usually about 5m away I guess.
Any one with experience with an Arduino and a BT shield or has a previous project they’ve done or seen online and wants to forward it to me that’d be great!
