oigres666: Hi everyone! I have a question... if I use 4 ultrasonic sensors and I want to send the data to Processing for transforming the data to OSC, can I use the 15 sensors sketch but with 4?? I don't know how can i do it...
#define SONAR_NUM 4 // Number of sensors.
yeah, I know that, but i want to know how to send to processing, How can processing read this data???.... coz from processing i can transform the data to OSC...or am I wrong?? :cold_sweat: Thank u!
What do you mean by "i want to know how to send to processing"? What is "processing"? What is "OSC"?
The sketch pings the sensors and stores the values in the cm array. In the pingResult() function the contents of the cm array are output via serial. If you want to send that data to something else, whatever "processing" and "OSC" is, you would simply replace the contents of the pingResults() function with whatever you wanted to do with the results. We have no idea what you want to do with the results, but the data is there for you to do whatever you want with it. The pingResults() function is where you should do your magic with the results.
I have a post with help and alternative code for the 15 sensor sketch.
First of all, thank you for answering Tim! Processing is a language like, java, C++, etc... and OSC it's a protocol like MIDI for controlling a virtual instrument or whatever in your computer... My project is with 4 ultrasonic sensors to get the results and transform them into OSC so you can control eg. Ableton Live or whatever, moving your hands you can change a synth's parameters in real time.... Your code works perfectly for my 4 sensors! Now with your advice I'm going to try "play" with the data... Maybe I could obviate "Processing" and finding a library for Arduino which I can handle OSC... hahahaha sorry I'm rambling... Anyway Thanks for ur code again!!!
