while working with some Students at the HFG Offenbach, I had problems with recent Arduinos and Firmata.
Although i thought it would be better for beginners to have an even simpler Version of Firmata, which can't be reconfiguered. Thats why I decided to write a new basic and simpe Firmata. The BasicMata.
The code is maximum simple and doesnt apply any non standard functions. The Protocoll is based on the PING/PONG paradigm. More info here: http://code.google.com/p/basicmata/wiki/BasicMataIntroduction
Since I'am working mostly with VVVV I added a module for it.
It would be cool to have such a Demo for Processing, PD, Max, OF and whatever as well ....
So if You could do some Demo please contribute! Become a contributor: http://code.google.com/p/basicmata/
And I really love to here if this little code block is working well for You!
Sketch vvvv modul and infos in the zip-file. Recent versions miight be found here:
Tested it- working like a charm. Really nice solution for workshops and simple tasks.
i tired to upload the basisMata.pde to the arduinoUNO. i tried to upload with arduino-0022 and arduino-0020.But both give me an error message after uploading:avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
What IDE of the arduino softeare you used to upload the code ?
Looks like hardware problem. Try to reconnect it, or connect to the different port. Also check Serial and Device properties in Arduino IDE.
Thanks a lot for this, it works perfectly and makes things quite easy!
