Firmata, Arduino and VVVV, an introduction

tutorial

about

For every one who wonders what an easy way could be to master the Arduino microprocessor board, and control it with vvvv, I introduce the Firmata firmware.

Just upload to the Firmata sketch to your Arduino and start playing with the input pins and the output pins.

I will show you Buttons, Potentio meters, Light resistors, Piezo speakers, Servo engines and an LED,

All the electronics used are the BASIC examples of Arduino.

I am just showing a modified Firmata patch from the Girlpower folder, so there is nothing to download.

The beta version which I have doesn't include firmata for Arduino, can you please share the patch file

@Asir i'm afraid the vvvv parts of this tutorial are no longer compatible with latest versions. working with firmata/arduino was greatly simplified. in betas>38 please refer to the helppatch of the FirmataBoard (Devices) node to get started. if you have any specific questions about it, pleaes best ask them in the forum!

ravazquez: @levi not sure bout the ImagePack, but I believe VL.OpenCV should give you the same tools and should work with beta just fine

levi: anyone knows of a VVVVpacks.image that works for elliot's projector calibration patches?x64,dx11. always crashes v4 on solve.
