i try to establish the communication between arduino and vvvv to get data from my maxbotix range sensor. i know firmata and got it up running on my board and vvvv as well and be able to do simple actions like switching LED’s on and off BUT i dont know how to read the pulse data from that maxbotix sensor straight to vvvv. So my idea was to make an “indirection” over processing.
that’s my status quo:
- i already have my maxbotix range sensor running on my ARDUINO and receiving beautiful distance measurements
- i got the oscP5 library working in PROCESSING and sending data over OSC to my vvvv patch (and receiving them as well)
- now i try to receive data in PROCESSING from my ARDUINO using the “simpleread” example (should read serial data) but its throwing out an error and i stuck.
So do you know how i can read the data from the maxbotix sensor with firmata? Or do u have another idea or know a better way to get the data from my arduino to vvvv.
I would be happy about any hints. Thanks in advance.
