Arduino Serial Monitor
This example shows you how to run biicode's Arduino Serial Monitor Interface and turn ON/OFF one LED easily.
If you don't know how to start using Arduino with biicode, check out our :ref:`getting started guide for Arduino<arduino_getting_started>`.
Put the following file in your
~/project_name/blocks/your_user_name/block_name/ or just open the example block.
.. literalinclude:: ../../_static/code/arduino/examples/monitor_led/monitor_led.cpp :language: cpp
Turn ON/OFF one LED
First, configure your arduino settings and toolchain:
$ bii arduino:settings ... $ bii configure -toolchain=arduino ...
Sencond, build your project:
$ bii build
Now upload this firmware to your Arduino with the following command:
$ bii arduino:upload ... [100%] Built target [your_user_name]_monitor_led_main-upload
You shouldn't get any erros but if you do, please check that your Arduino is correctly connected, and check your settings (using the
bii arduino:settings command).
If you still have any issues please contact us at our forum.
Now, open the Arduino monitor. You only need to execute the following command:
$ bii arduino:monitor ... Arduino detected on port [YOUR_PORT]
You'll see a window with an interface that allows you to communicate with the Arduino Serial Port. Here you can send
0 to turn the led ON or OFF, respectively.
