EV3Messenger

The EV3 Messenger is a C# program for exchanging messages with a Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot using Bluetooth.

How to use

  • Create a bluetooth connection between your computer and the Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot (using windows, not using the Mindstorms EV3 program environment)
  • Check which serial port is used by the connection (find the properties in the 'Start Menu -> Device and printers' dialog.
  • Create a program on your EV3 robot that uses message blocks and wait for message blocks (actually the wait blocks have a better use, especially in update mode)
  • Run the EV3Messenger program....

Notes

  • Lego did not release the bluetooth protocol of the EV3 yet. So this program was made after sniffing the serial communication. It's a functional proof of concept :-)
  • Direct commands are not supported.

A short doc file that should get you up and running with the code can be found in DOCS.md

More to follow.... need some time (who doesn't)!

Have fun!
