I´m having a hard time trying to send simple strings from vvvv to an Arduino board.
I want to trigger gadgets connected to the Arduino-board using a simple text.
As the functionality of the Arduino-board will be a bit complex, I cant´t use the Firmata-library and the very comfortable Arduino node from the Addon Pack.
Until now, I CAN get sensor values via strings from the Arduino-board to vvvv, but I want the other way round: Sending strings from vvvv to Arduino-board in order to evaluate the string there. But I´m not successful.
I attached a very basic patch, which shall demonstrate my issue. It does not work. Maybe someone has a solution.
I got inspired on http://processing.org/discourse/beta/num_1263296127.html.
In this example, Processing sends a string via Serial to the Arduino board. The Arduino board evaluates the string and switches the light either on or off.
In my patch, I´m trying to do the same in vvvv.
I want to replace Processing with vvvv.
Can someone help?
