[Help]How the data transfer via bluetooth from Arduino with android?

Hi! I'm learning about a project data transfer between android and arduino uno via bluetooth. I have found on the net but could not find. Can you help me? Thanks.

Do you have a problem at the Android end (which I am unlikely to be able to help with) or at the Arduino end.

Without seeing your code it is impossible to offer any advice.


can you give me some pieces of the project ?

Here is a sample project that I found. If you want to receive data from the Arduino sent to the need to add anything?

(You might be on the wrong forum)

sorry, I do not know you can tell me where to enter.

Here is a sample project that I found.
If you want to receive data from the Arduino sent to the need to add anything?



package com.example.bluetooth1;

import java.io.IOException;

That is an Android java program.

This is an Arduino forum - don’t expect Android expertise here. Especially as the Android people have gone out of their way to make Android programming as complicated as possible.

Where to enter what?

You need to explain what you are asking in a lot more detail.


I want to read ADC from Arduino then returns the smart phone via bluetooth.

ltdat5169: I want to read ADC from Arduino then returns the smart phone via bluetooth.

You need + an Arduino program (which should be fairly easy to do) + a bluetooth module to connect to your Arduino + a program for your Android phone which can receive the data

Have you any of these parts? If you have give details of them - but remember we don't know Android coding in this Forum

If you need to write a simple program for your phone this link to SL4A may be of interest


I suspect you are trying to re-invent the wheel.

At a guess, you want to read an analogue signal on Arduino and send that to Android via Bluetooth.

This requires - an Arduino programme about ten lines long. - a bluetooth module for Arduino, cost about $7 on eBay - an app already written by somebody else for Android, of which there are about a dozen available, all for free.

My favourite is Bluetooth Graphics Terminal, which, surprise, can display your results live on a graph.
