The Atmega is configured to use internal pull-up resistors which may be adequate for short cable runs. Also see further down in this thread for some screen-shots of the effect of using different pull-up resistors. Of course, you also need to connect the GND ground pins to complete the circuit. The pins should be connected together that is, pin 4 to pin 4, and pin 5 to pin 5, if you are connecting Arduino Unos together.
Here we look at using that connection to get Arduinos talking over Bluetooth. Before continuing you need to have the Arduinos and BT modules set up as per the previous post.
Here I am using 2 HCs. One in master mode the other in slave mode. The setup process for the slave mode HC is the same as the HC in the previous post. I have designated one of the Arduinos as the master device. This is the one that initiates the connection and in the first example it is the one that sends the commands.
Having a master and slave setup makes the programming a little easier. The AltSoftSerial library can be downloaded multiple digitalwrite arduino https: Both BT modules are set with a communication baud rate of This can be changed but make sure you match the baud rate used when opening the software serial connection.
However, the Arduino TX pin needs to be converted to 3. A simple way to do this is by using a voltage divider made from 2 resistors; I generally use 1 x 1K and 1 x 2K. Communication is one way only and there is no error checking. When the Arduino 2 gets the commands it sets the LED accordingly.
Circuit Arduino 1, the master device, just has the Bluetooth module. Arduino 2, the slave device we have the Bluetooth module and an LED with a suitable resistor on pin D3. The Sketch on Arduino 2, the slave device, checks for data and if there is a start marker it starts to put the recieved data in to the variable receivedChars[ ].
Any data not within the start and end markers is ignored. Remote Temperature Monitor This example is a little more complex and unlike example 1, where the master device starts to send data as soon as it runs, this time it requests data from the slave.
The slave receives the request from the master device and replies. As before, the Bluetooth modules are set to automatically connect on start up. However, this time I an using 2 HCs; one in master mode, 1 in slave mode. On start up, the master device initialises the LCD and starts a timer.
When the timer finishes it sends out a request for the temperature. The Timer is then reset. Within the main loop, the sketch is continuously checking for received data.
When it receives a temperature it displays it on the LCD. The slave simply sits and waits for the request. When it receives the request it sends out the temperature and then goes back to waiting. Sketches The sketch on the master device is fairly simple.
Once a second it sends a request to the slave device and waits for a reply. You can change the frequency of the request by changing the value of waitTime.After learning how to flash a single LED on your Arduino, you are probably looking for a way to make cool patterns, but feel limited by the use of delay().
If you ask in the forums, you get told to look at the “Blink Without Delay” example. This example introduces the idea of replacing delay() [ ]. What We’re Doing. We have caused one LED to blink, now its time to up the stakes. Lets connect eight. We’ll also have an opportunity to stretch the Arduino a bit by creating various lighting sequences.
Rather than requiring a physical press of the reset button before an upload, the Arduino Uno is designed in a way that allows it to be reset by software running on a connected computer. Multiple PID compute in Arduino loop - Quadcopter Showing of 7 messages.
Multiple PID compute in Arduino loop - Quadcopter I am making QuadCopter using Arduino uno R3 and using one PID library for each axis i.e pitch and roll and for gyro I am using MPU digitalWrite(12, HIGH);.
I'd like to 'clean up' some code that involves several pinMode() and digitalWrite() lines by using a single line of an array. I'm very new to both arrays so I'm a bit confused. The following examples are sections from code that controls a 4 digit, 7 segment LED.
How to Use Arrays with Arduino. Back in the old days, before medical information went digital – there were paper medical records. An array has multiple elements – which would be the equivalent of pages in a medical record.
function. Recall digitalWrite() takes two arguments 1) it wants to know which pin and 2) whether you want HIGH.
