I am currently on the starting stages of my personal academic HW/SW project for the elderly/disabled. I was thinking about making a standalone program which would be very easy to use for those without any technical knowledge to tweak the settings on a arduino board (probably a MKR1400).
The standalone program will most likely be a Java app with simplistic GUI to tweak these settings. (ie edit phone number saved on the MKR1400)
By my current limited knowledge, my idea was to let the Java app save the settings in a text file then open the Arduino IDE directly then flash the board the manually. Obviously these are extra steps and installation which will make the steps harder for most people. Therefore I am wondering if there any way for the Java applet to send the settings to the arduino board.
Can anyone show me the direction to look if I want the Java app to be able to directly send the messages to an arduino board?
Thanks for your time
