I’m trying to generate a motion graphic, ( or even to transform a string) according to an accelerometer that I have here.
It captures the movements (X, Y, Z) and sends to the computer through a serial port.
Is that possible? Can anybody give me some hints please?
I was trying to use the Port (Devices) Node…
The port is okay, I’m also monitoring the port and is all good.
I’ve setted the write COM, Databits, Baud Rate and stop Bits, but still can’t detect it from the VVVV.
Right, delete the Port node so you’re only using RS232. Make sure the device isn’t communicating with any other software.
There is a strong chance the device looks for a software intermediary to unlock data stream. All about the drivers. I’ve been using a device recently where this is the case.
If anyone here is familiar with C# there is a library they can write a plugin with. I’m not that seasoned yet and I haven’t got the device to test and debug with but maybe some around here with the skills will offer a hand. Its a useful bit of kit!
Barring that you can try a little workaround using this. It will send the data to vvvv as midi midiyoke or loopbe will be required too). Its not the prettiest solution but it should get you where you need to go.
