Ok, I’ve got an idea… I’m thinking of building a wireless music remote. My idea is to have an LCD that shows the info of the music (Such as song playing, album, artist, time) and several buttons to control simple actions. Because this going to be wireless, so its needs to be able to hold its data, even when it loses it’s connection with the host. So, I will need to store the current info on the arduino. I will most likely use eventshost to send the data as it is very simple and convenient. The Data will be sent from a micro, which acts as a base station. For communication I am going to use these cheap nRF24L01+ transceivers, because, well they’re cheap. I know I am a going to need data to be sent and received and eventghost will send all the data in a single string.
I have got an idea, but know little about writing the code. Anyone have any ideas? Has this been done before? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Also, a n00b question, how do I parse data from a single string and then convert them into variables? For example, If I fed an arduino something like “[device id]album:albumname, Song:songname, time:current time” It would automatically update the variables, then updating on the screen, holding them until the next string arrives.
Any and all ideas are welcome
