Connecting to Mindwave

OSX

The main steps are:

  • Pair your computer and the Mindwave
  • Connect to the device via Artoo

First pair your computer and Mindwave. You might be prompted for a passcode, if so enter '0000'.

Once paired, use the artoo connect scan command to find out your connection info:

$ artoo connect scan

Now you are ready to connect to the Mindwave using a serial connection.

Ubuntu

The main steps are:

  • Pair your computer and the Mindwave
  • Map your device to a unix port
  • Use a socket to serial connection to map a TCP socket to the local unix port
  • Connect to the device via Artoo

First pair your computer and Mindwave. You might be prompted for a passcode, if so enter '0000'.

Once paired, use the artoo connect scan command to find out your connection info:

$ artoo connect scan
Scanning ...
  00:06:66:4A:14:99 Mindwave

Next, you need to bind the Mindawave to the system port. In the above example, /dev/rfcomm0. The easiest way to do this is to use the artoo connect bind command:

artoo connect bind 00:06:66:4A:14:99 /dev/rfcomm0

Now you are ready to connect to the Sphero using system port.

Windows

We are currently working with the Celluloid team to add Windows support. Please check back soon!
