Arduino Bluetooth Control is an application that allows you to control your arduino board (and similar boards) via Bluetooth, and so to create awesome and fully customized projects, with the new features available within the app.
The settings section allows you to adapt the application to your needs, through a very simple and intuitive interface.
Once launched and connected to your module, the application handles sms receiving to control your board from wherever you are.Everything you need to do is just to keep a connected phone near your board via the application, and send an sms to it that starts with the word Arduino and followed by the data you need to send. For example -Arduino 1- means that -1- will be sent to your board, - Arduino hello- would send -hello- and so on.
The application also smartly remembers your bluetooth module and will always try to connect automatically to the latest one you have used, so you won't have to select it every time you use it .
This tool was optimized to receive data via the println() function of arduino, which allows special processing of the data received, like in the "Metrics" tool. It allows you to receive only numbers and fix alarms to get notified about the variations of the value received, either by classic notifications or by sms to another phone, you will only need to specify the number in the "Settings" section. You can also do the same the other way around, as mentionned before.Once the alarm triggered, a stop button shows up, allowing you to stop it.Besides you can activate the shaking mode, that will allow you to send data simply by shaking your phone.
This tool provides direction buttons that can fully customized with the data to send, and the sensitivity, which allows to send continuously data to the board by maintainning long press on them.
This tool is just a classic terminal that receives and sends data to the board, displayed with the timestamp corresponding to each action.
4.Buttons and slider
In portrait orientation, this tool provides 6 buttons fully customized, that will allow you to send specific data when pressed. When you rotate your device, a slider view shows up , to which you can set the range of the data to be sent.
This tool permits you to interpret the gesture commands of your phone, and send the corresponding data to your board, and so , your phone can be the steering wheel of your robot. You can of course set the sensitivity of it through the settings interface.
6. Voice Control
Have you ever dreamed of talking to you robots ? well now your dream is becoming true ! With Arduino Bluetooth Control, you can customize your own vocal commands and use them to control all your microcontroller-based boards !
If you encounter a problem with the application,or need some specific tool to control you board, we will be pleased to help you out with it !
