Computer - Arduino

U can control the arduino by PC.

I built a Visual-Basic program that can control arduino pins.

As You can see in the picture, you can choose with COM port to connect,

And you can send a manual command to Arduino by Serial Port,

You can control pin 13 I/O and pin 6 PWM,

You can do the same to the all other pins.

On the Arduino, he recives all the bits and put them on char until he see the command sign [/].

Then he test bit after bit and do the command.

The command:

M = Mode [0 to I/O 2 to PWM, 1 is on work...]

P = Pin [02-13]

S = State, on mode 0 is 1 to on 0 to off, on mode 2 is [001 - 256].

Here's a download for this program: V1 http://www.mediafire.com/?k6rr5a6awk4jk6m

Arduino sketch[sorry if it bad...]:V1 http://www.mediafire.com/?fc90o2tol7hdwuu

In the future i will build system to control servo and more, and the Arduino will can send feedbacks...

Thank you, that is my first post here...

Cool, any chance to download the program?

Are you planning to put more functionality in? 

Welcome to LMR, nice first post.

Yes, I add the downloads in the post, sorry i forgot...

And Yes, I will put more functionality in!


I can help you make this better :)
